So, my ride home from work today (10 miles each way) started the same as it began.

1) a couple pumps of the primer (I forget that sometimes), reach about 8 mph and pop the clutch to start and immediately pull the clutch back in.

2) warm up for timed 2 minutes with a couple throttles

3) work up to 20 mph and then rev up to 25 mph

I have officially switched to Castor927.

So, When I first added my new Castor 30:1 mix, I still had some 20:1 mix in the tank (just covering the toptube curve).

the engine ran superb but with the higher flashpoint of the 927, is there anyone running a favorite "cocktail" of 927 and other 2 cycle oil ?

I'm thinking of adding 2.5 ounces of 927 and 2.0-2.5 ounces of what I've been using for breakin (StayMix).

What are ya'll doing ?

700c x 38 tires
40 tooth
25mph sweetspot
hills easy 20 mph

may I introduce: La Poderocita ;)
