Wet and Wild Mp3 Player

I've been waiting for a midday rain to test this water proof and shock proof mp3 player from freestyle audio while on a mountain bike at a medium to high speed on a rough terrain. But to no luck no midday or morning rain, since it's been a long week of waiting I decided to test it on a basin of water while shaking it.

The player was submerged for 30 minutes with gradual and alternate shaking as a shock and pressure

As you can see here the player is still lit and functional....

As of this moment I highly recommend this mp3 player to all sports enthusiast who love to take their music with them while in motion! But still I want to try this under the rain on a two wheeled mountain bike.....

Another Neophytes Trail Ride

Kinesis Dual Slallom

I went to the local bike shop this morning and found this new frame that my friend has been telling me for days, it was really awesome and quite lighter compared to my old Dual Slalom Mosso. This frame cost about US$200 at the local bike shop. Sigh... I have have to find budget for this one, this kind of frames are rare at our place.

This is KD 415

This one here is the the drop out of the KD 515, somehow the same with the KD 415 except the dual purpose drop outs and the Bottom bracket has a Integrated Chain Guide mounting tabs.
