Bike Jackers Beware

One of the best news in Philippine Sports and Lifestyle interest of Phillippine politicians is the crackdown on bike jackers headed by Ms. Pia Cayetano. This a very good gun point to PNP not to disregard robbery of bikes in any part of the Philippine archipelagos' specially of mountainbikes! I just hope that this campaign is not limited on Metro Manila only, and that Ms. Cayetano will also push through this mandate be implemented in the whole country!

Clark's Failed

This Disk Brake Rotor Failed me not only once but thrice. I am not sure if the problem is with Shimano XT Calipers or with this rotor.... I am currently trying hard to find out what is the cause why my front brakes with this rotor does not rip well!

Floor Pump

I Just bought my first floor pump from Corpo Cycle a LBS in our area. I was hesitant to buy this pump at first sight because of plan to buy a new hub and tires for my wheel set. but since I gave my old handy pump to a friend, I later on decided to buy this pump so as I can use it for bike repair jobs at home.

Freeride Lapierre

La Pierre caught my eyes ever since the release of their prototype DH Frame, and after seeing it in action. It was one of the dream frame that shook the DH community after the Gear Box craze. I just wish that La Pierre will design a freeride frame with the same look of a DH frame.

Trials with Ryan Leech

After Watching Ryan Leech with his Static 360 Degrees Trick I feel in-love with trials again. Though this bike doesn't really look very much of a trials bike, I had so much fun pulling the trick out for myself. I just keep on watching this video at youtube and taking a very good keen look with the movements on how to put this trick into a perfects action!

It's not a Good Day to Bike....

Today's weather is not the usual weather were everyone feels the heat and cool breeze. It feels weakening and biking feels boring. You don't get sweat a lot and you won't get any audience due to a weather with sickening feel.

How I wish I could build my own indoor biking park for everyone to ride even when the sun is on off-duty! ^^

It's Nice to be Back!

After two years of undefined mountain biking activities. I finally found an exit route from boredom and routine into the trail and wilderness.

With a few bucks on my pocket the entry was with upgrading my mechanical brake system into Hydraulics! Whooorah!

With a few help from friends and kind hearted bike shop owners, I was able to afford a Shimano Deore XT Hydraulic Calipers with Shimano Deore Hydraulic Levers courtesy of Bisikleta and Corpo Cycle. And due to experimental purpose to prove to myself that Clarks' parts are really good or not, I decided to try their 6 bolt disk brake rotors.

Furthermore please excuse the dirt because, I have just tried my Good old bike under the usual ! ^__^
