Thanks Dan, I also put the fenders back on my chrome cruiser today.

Check out my fix for the un-reliable tabs.

Took the main motorized bicycle for coffee yesterday, and thought about testing out and breaking in the huffy 50 slant today,

but opted to pedal the ol '67 Peugeot PX10- shorts and short sleeve cycling jersey-

mid-70's and partly cloudy- it's warmed up again in Florida for awhile...

Was 40F here today! Long ride to do a MPG test. 27 miles on 32 Ozs. Thats .843 miles to the ounce! Or 108 MPG but former sounded cooler.

OH! broke a rear spoke on the pedal side! How is that possible? Some one else did it recently and I can't remember who so I can ask what they think.

Also lost my muffler. All of a sudden at the end of a long down hill it sounded like an HD horn, call to arms was blearing. Look back and my rubber muffler is bouncing down the street. It got some good air, snork. Yet another advantage to the no patent pending dansco rubber muffler. It don't scuff, it don't scratch but it do bounce. (threaded it back on and rode away)

With that huge sproket that's pretty good mileage, but with a 36 you'd get more, especially not opewning the throttle as much.

just sayin'

Me Kat? I had thought about it but has the bare minimum low end now. Engine tops out around 5000 RPM. Have a 56T rear sprocket. Have a few 48s around but think that would be way to low. Since I have to re-lace the wheel, might try it. Thanks. Sunday in the shop/garage is Heaven. NPR on the radio, wrench in hand. And it's warm today!
The Aqua Teen, Hunger Force sales team is still telling folks I have to pedal start. Be funny if I really had to.

Sick of messing with chains. That bike has round chain stays so really should make up some kind of chain tensioner. I play around a lot. Chain pictured had 3 master and one half links at one time. Big on building. Low on finishing, lol.

Been doing a lot of city ridding. Normally I leave the bike in what ever gear suits the Terrain. But having to accelerate at car speeds, been going threw all the gears. (7) Dunno why it never occurred to me to do this. But now I am usually slowing for the next light b4 the car, truck or bus catches up to me.

All that to say thanks for the thought.

Dan - I broke a spoke on the pedal side of the hub. I pedal pretty hard when it is my turn to go at a busy four way stop where two four lane roads meet. I will stand and pedal a couple of hard strokes before letting out the clutch.
That wheel also had a year or more of trail riding on it so it was not such a great choice.
