the 20 out on a mission

Here is an action shot of me riding the Raleigh 20 at 8-10 MPH along the North Shore Path. I needed to take my old car in for service today, so I thought what a better way than to take my old folder home instead of bumming a ride off of someone.

I noticed on this more extended riding session that the index chain was not fully engaging all three gears in the hub. When I got home, I spent about 3 minutes (including test rides) and it now seems more accurate in grabbing all 3 gears.

I made the 6-7 mile journey home in 40 minutes, which includes a pretty substantial hill that is somewhat challenging on 20 inch wheels.
