Today i took the Peugeot for its first test ride since installing the new forks and disc brake. It slightly bogged on take off but then got up to speed nicely. The ride was much smoother with the new forks and the disc brakes stopping power is unbelievable. It must stop in half the distance of the old drum brake. I think the weight of the beefy new forks and the luggage box has affected its ability to climb hills. Next up i need to look at increasing performance.
