Sherman check up after a few hundred miles in the wet, cold weather.

Recommended Posts

Well the good news is there’s no water anywhere it shouldn’t be!

I opened up my case to check all the bolts and see how the case is holding up to the wet weather and muddy trails I’ve been riding.

I’m pleased to report that the Sherman has done very well so far:

No water in the battery cases

Slight bearing rust on outer case

All bolts were tight (I added loctite on reassembly anyway)

I lost a screw from the metal frame (seriously - self tappping wood screws??? They don’t bite into anything! So I filled that hole with hot glue, screwed into that. Sealed the screw down and then taped over the screws with heavy duty gorilla tape).

The stock grip tape was good, but not for long so I put some vicious brand grip tape there instead until I can get some spiked pedals.

Such a machine!

Did you do any weather proofing of your Sherman? I'm in the Pacific North west and I ride my MSX in the rain all of the time. I just ordered a Sherman and I'm worried that it won't be waterproof enough if I get caught in a downpour.
