Missing the off-road

Its been two years since I last pedal and rolled the outskirts of our village. Lacking budget to buy the necessary parts for my mountainbike I decided to get to blogging and hopely earn some cash to buy the three major parts: The Frame, the Fork and Wheelset. 

Since I'm currently in tight budget I will stick to a not so famous brands but by so far have been reliable on the trail with respect to my riding style.

The frame would be from Kinesis a 27.5 wheel size with a suspension travel of 150mm - 180mm, 

The fork? hmm the fork, if budget comes flowing like water in the river I would go for Fox 36, but if tight as a faucet, I'll head on to Suntour Durolux, if in-between a Rockshox Lyrik or Pike air solo will do.

For the wheelset, any known high-end brands with low end price will do. If I can find a good condition second hand Down hill rim, I will lace it with enduro spokes to an enduro hubs.

1st Trail Ride

Though I've riding trails with my friends on a mountain bike, today's ride was the first time where we rolled single tracks with a group of more than 10 riders. Though the pace was slow, it was full of track side story about trails. It was a lot of push at the beginning, but after the decent those sweat taking climbs was something to remember with words "It was worth It" :).

Bike Financing

Ever since I learned about genuine parts and brands of mountain bikes, I already knew that it will take something to finance my hobby. Other than sponsorships, I knew that I must find other means, options or any other way to continuously enjoy my hobby. Genuine parts at my location are scarce, if you could find one, they either sell it expensive or a second hand deal. Though the internet is flocked with online stores to maximize option in hunting for best deals for these genuine parts. I will be needing the Best Business Credit Cards also.

With the evolution of technology applicable to mountain biking, parts are getting lighter and durable. But as the excitement grows, so as inflation. It is like a tag that says "Prices are subject to change without prior notice". And waiting for the year end sales is always on the list to get the best parts of the current season. If you want to be in pace with the technology, you got to have a good funding. And thank you Lord I found mine! There is my wife who is so supportive, my blogging and my home based small scale business that is giving me the resources that is helping me to enjoy my mountain biking. Though everything is not easy money, I just consider it a challenge that is giving me the reason to value all the outcome of our efforts. :)
