Re: Life expectancy of Chinese Bicycle Engines
My beater has close 8200 km's on it now...that's since last fall. The temperature range that I've subjected it to are between +28C and -45C. Still going strong, without so much as a hiccup...although I did replace my coil around the 5500 km mark. That was my own fault though...not the engines, lol.
I don't baby it at all, and I am the worst person that I've ever met for maintenance issues...there just aren't enough hours in the day to care what shape it's in as long as it gets me to work and back...sometimes thru a good 6-10 inches of snow, lol.
Take care, and ride safely.
Yes, I really do ride what I sell...everyday.
