-how i spend my weekend-

Sabtu 28hb Mac 2009


how i spend my weekend.... its all start when i received my new Avid BB5 brake disc for my mtb...beli dekat bbs ( bicyclebuysell.com ).... item courier from JB... so bile sampai ipoh ptg tuh.. balik keje.. straight trus pegi kedai onn pasang.... tengah tungggu tuh... terjumpa le sorang brader nih... dia minggu lepas ikut pegi ulu kinta... cut story short... dia ajak pegi trail kat meru raya... thats just behind my house jer...i have to go.. i want to test my new disc brake... so hantar hannah kat baby sitter... and off me go....

1 of many stops

stop rest


stop kat waterfall


ok... here's the recap for this trail ride...

1. i am happy because i am not the last 1 to arrived

2. the trail is kinda "santai" no uphill like Kg Kolam, Ulu Kinta.

3. downhill ride... ok lah... not so downhill....but fun..

4. if the trail is maintained....and ridden more.. i bet the path will be nice.

5. this trail got potential... but need a group of enthusiast to make it better....


who am i to compare this trail with an established trail... i am just a newbie....... a newbie who jumps that is...... heehhehehehe


pas tuh...petang sabtu tuh balik kuala kangsar sat.... lama tak balik kampung... walaupun 30min buleh sampai.....


Ahad 29hb Mac 2009

tak terasa plak penat...and bukit yang tinggi tuh telah di kayuh....

mcm biasa member lain mesti dah sampai dulu... maklum lah derang naik bukit kledang tuh.. bantai kayuh laju macam pegi kedai beli nak beli rokok je.... hehehhehehe..power siot... bile la aku dpt mcm tuh.... 4 bulan lagi kots... itu pun kalau rajin training... so since berkabus kat atas tuh.. nih je pic yang ko sket... hehehhehe

so minggu nih 1st time off-road on my new frame... testing frame baru la katakan.... hhhmmmm.... kenapa tak banyak gambar?? sebab.... masuk je kampung kolam (kat ulu kinta)...naik bukit... terus pancit.... bukan tayar pancit... aku yang pancit... maklumlah...last kayuh kledang... tak kayuh2 dah.... kepala pun pening2 lalat.... aper lagas....UUWEKkkkkkk~~~~ bantai muntah 2-3 kali dulu.... pas tuh rest sekejap... yee haaa....sambung ride balik.... tapi setengah mampus la nak menghabiskan ride hari nih... memang penats.... arghhhhh.....

time ride seronok... time nak basuh beskal... aduhhhhh malas nyer......
hmmm.... mcm nak cari beskal mtb besi yang murah2 la... dalam RM100.... nak letak atas trainer... single speed pun ok kot... tgk lah budget bulan depan mcm mana... hehheehe
