Motobecane Pulley

The Panda Express got fired up yesterday and made an awful ratchet noise when you would let off the throttle. Motobecane and self-fulfilling prophecy guru Ian T was able to diagnose it quickly. The pedal switch on this bike is normally rivited on, but this one was bolted in. Apparently, someone had damaged it and then had it repaired. Sadly, the teeth were barely making contact. Since everyone knows that pedal mode on a Moby is better off served by removing the drive belt anyway, we decided the best course of action was to relocate the arm for maximum contact and weld. Tada!
