    Wanted to start a poll, maybe to be a sticky to collect first ride experiences.

    I just rode mine for the first time. Started right up with a little choke. Seems to be running a little rich, but I expected that here in Denver. I'll keep it rich until it's broken in and then lean it out a little.

    Had to tighten the chain a couple of times in just the first 15 minutes of riding.

    Sure does pedal hard. I think I'll have to put a lower gear on it.

    My first ride was a joke. My beat-up old huffy had chain alignment issues. Then I the busted the 410 chain my kit came with. But in the end, a #41 roller chain and clam shell hub adapter and down the road I went. I'm still gone! I love every second that I get to ride.
