ive been riding this motorized walmart bike for nearly 4 mos, and its done ok, but this direct wheel on tire drive isnt that efficeint, and now it appears that after changing the rear tire (again) and mounting my basket that its torqued or leaning way to the left, as can be seen in the photo. it is much more apparent in reality, as its hard for me to get htis thing oriented straight for the photo.
It requires constant adjustment of course, becuase of wear etc, but has been pretty reliable albeit very weak power and traction wise (shoulda got a direct chain drive type).
But now, after a friend and i changed teh tire it and readjusted clearance, it appears to be leaning excessively. I cant see anything loose in the mounting bolts or anything obvious. Maybe it jsut does this over time and i jsut didnt notice it till now.
Anyone out there familiar wiht such bikes think this is a bit odd, or jsut part of the territory. I thought i may have to remount the engine on the mount, but it appears to me that the mount itself is torqued a bit, and i may need to get a new mounting plate. Just wondered what any of you guys may think. thanxx....
this is my ride until i get a Tomos ST in a couple of weeks (hopefully). And it will still get alot of use in town, as theres some places i still will need to use it.
