    First "Ride" Report

    Not really much of a ride, more of a tease for my creation. Saw a bunch of Wet Trail signs about so I didn't stay out long. Had to ride a different set of trails that are new to me, since the trail I was wanting to ride was closed.

    Did find a few minor things though that need to be tweaked. Brakes are a tad mushy, front end still doesn't sound right when a set it down on something solid. I can still hear a rattle that is not just brake cables. Other than that I've built myself a solid ride so it seems. After I get it out for a longer ride I am sure I will find a few more things that need to be ironed out.

    One thing that I've read on here that I thought was different was the sound of the Singulator. Mine sounds more like a purr or buzz of a small motor and not like a click like I've read others say theirs sounds like.
