I just bought one of these little gems and don't know much about it. Just wanted to reach out to any owners and make sure there is nothing I need to look out for as far as issues these bikes have. Any help is appreciated

Thank you.

If it's the model with the cable operated front disc, they can be problematic until you get them cleaned and adjusted.. That's all I can think of for now. Others here should have more info..

Yes, it is the cable operated front disc and the brakes are horrible. Haven't had a chance to dig into but hopefully i can get it to stop a little better.

Bill swears that those CB200 cable operated discs work really well once they're cleaned and lubed properly. I'd be inclined to believe him...

Yeah, mine stops great when it's dry.
I can't say about in the rain, as I don't ride in the rain much..........
Actually, I was surprised because I'd heard bad things about them beforehand.
But once I figured out how to get it apart, it was ok to deal with.


Now this CM200 I'm doing has terrible brakes, kind of pathetic actually.

tbpmusic- I finally got a chance to dig into my front brake on the CB200.....and Damn. I'm not sure if it is doing what it's supposed to do or not. If you ever get a chance to give me a call I would like to tell you what I see and you can tell me if you think i can salvage this POS. PM me if you would be willing to do this and I'll shoot you my number.

Thanks,
