Default Re: hello

Your engine will produce more power as it accrues miles. Yours isn'y anywhere near broken in yet. After several tanks of fuel you'll begin to notice an increase in performance. Give it a chance before making any drastic changes.

As for fork clearance, maybe Kioshk will provide a photo and further explanation on how and where he spread his frame. I've attached a photo of a quick and simple tool for spreading frames. It is a turnbuckle with two 'U' shaped parts to fit a frame tube.

Pedal assistance won't hurt anything and in fact is encouraged as opposed to lugging the engine down to climb hills.
