That's what I've been doing. My only hesitation about continuing to ride is the idea of losing the third gear completely and having it lock up the transmission at highway speeds. It obviously hasn't happened to either of us, but I wonder if anyone else with this issue has experienced a locked drive train.I just go from 2 to 4. It's a big jump too since I am geared taller too with a small back pulley !
Nice collection of blowers and bikes. Do you have to do an annual safety inspection? If so, how have you handled the third gear issue?
