Always check your used bike purchases....
So, today I decided it was time to do the rear bearing grease and maintenance on my speedy. Lo and Behold, I found something that I’m surprised didn’t end me on a ride. Not one, not two, not three, but all four rear wheel pins were sheared. Four “bullets” fell out when I pulled the wheel out, and I slowly realized what had happened. On top of that, i found a nice length of paracord wrapped around the rear axle. Always check your used purchases. Always.
Learn about your bike, learn about yourself.
