Off the pedal for almost a year, I am feeling the need of a trainer. But with the current price of trainers on the market, I think I'm gonna make one! ^^

The Best Rear Setup of Mountainbikes

Before you start scrolling down and criticize the photos, I would like to put a safety net that the following photos are taken from the internet and are scrutinized and judged by me as a best rear setup for Mountain Bikes ^^. Take note rear only! =) And So far only these Units passed my standards and taste without even trying them . hehehehe..... But if anyone willing to send me units to test, make sure the rear setup is similar to any of these units. sweet =)

1. Simplicity: Mechanical setup and moving parts (The lower the better)
2. Technology: number of shocks (the lower the better)

Acid Rain

Some catch while on wheels during the dusk. A yellowish accent of the clouds reminds me of the recent news that a acid rain will fall more often this days. Whew! I loved to pedal my bike under the rain, but with this health hazard news about the coming rains, gotta go home when the horizon turns gray....

Pumped Up

I recently bought this Giyo double action air pump from our local bikeshop - Bisikleta, I had to buy one because my centennial pump got busted. And while window shopping this hub series caught my attention and reminded me of my busted identical hub

While this hub caught my attention as a replacement for my hub with broken wings, but then again my decision of buying this part is put on hold because of the fact that I am not sure if Shimano revised the pawls of these hubs.

Today was not a busy day, so I spend half of the day rolling around the barrio, and it turns out to be the deep breathing exercise. Its been so long since the last time I rode my leg powered ride with speed, now it gives me a dark horizon vision after a few seconds of sprint....
