New Gearing Ratio

After the wreckage of my Shimano XT M775 rear hubs, I switch to FHRM65 a non-series hub of shimano that I think will do the work while waiting for a budget for a better pair of hub! I was thinking how to revive this hub. I think I have an idea to make the return spring funtionable without the pawls broken wings!

And while the alignment of of my rear wheelset, I had this road cogs in my closet that send me to try a new gearing ratio. I was using for more than a year this 42 chainring with a mountaibike 9 speed cogs. Now I am using a 32 chain ring with a 9 speed set of road cogs.

And Lastly, I bought this Woodman sitpost clamp today. I've been waiting for this size of clamp for a year now, after buying a frame without a clamp that fits with a 31.8 sitpost.

Busted Shimano XT

I got A busted rear hub. It's shimano XT hub, I bought it last year and I have been using it ever since even under the rain or muddy trails. Haven't opened it for cleaning, so I guess it's one of the reason the pawls are no longer functional!

Dusty Green

We had a trail ride last weekend at the back of our village. We use to take a trail here before especially during the Down Hill era. It's my first time to take pictures of the trail ever since I bought my camera.

So much change was observed at the trail. The grass are tall and the track got narrower, an implication that the track was rarely used.

The First Road Trip '09 - "Destination Parang"

Yeah at last! I had the first best mountain bike trip for the year 2009. Me and 8 other mountain bikers went to Parang. A place near the beach (But we didn't go to the beach T_T) and seaport. It was my first time to take a ride with my bike heading to this place. Not much picture because I was the camera man (Always!) but took plenty enough to describe Sir Vals place! ^^
