In celebration of Environmental Day in Canada I thought I would share my bicycle with the world sporting it's new sign. Lately the 'bykadelic' project bike is better known as the "Company Vehicle". Still working out some details as the gearing is way too high for an upright commuter bike. Man is it fast and hard to peddle in 8th gear! Changing to a 39 tooth chain ring helped considerably but I am still passing cars in 8th gear...not the desired effect. I am going to get pulled over for speeding!. I need to to get a 36 tooth chain ring which will tone it down but the Gain Ratio will still be the same as a street racing bike ! Yikes!!! Any advice on this dilemma is appreciated.
This bicycle rides like a dream. With a 5 speed transmision, comfy Brooks B67 Saddle, new 'dirt rag brown' cables, brake pads and wicker basket. In tall gears the bike chain was seizing. I replaced the chain today as no amount of cleaning or chain wax was smoothing things out. Now it drives perfectly.
