First Pinch Flat of 2011

Pinch Flat!!! One of the most disappointing experience one can ever had when you are in the middle of delicious medium to high speed downhill on a rock garden!!! But today's experience is one of the most disappointing phenomenon in my entire cruise biking life!!!

It was already dusk when we head to my usual hiking trail, "but of course, that day we brought our mountainbike with us". And at the climax of the trail and the most delicious part, I was accelerating as I enter the rocky section of the trail at 35 degrees steepness, my chain snapped and my rear tire went puff!!! And after a while while waiting for the other crew to pass after me, Jeby was also successful in obtaining a pinch flat, not only one tear but five tears on his tubes on the same spot!!! The only good part on today's trail ride was, one of the crew brought with him a pack of patch with paste!

30.9 Sit Post

I have been looking for this sit post for 40 years (not literally)! Though the length is not really good for my Trials setup but it is the best solution for my sit post problem! It is an ABR sit post, it is a bit pricy for its brand name but nevertheless a lot of local bikers do support and agree this product is good. So I then pulled out my crappy old wallet and paid the item, went straight home, took some pictures and installed it and zoooom! Went on to do some pedal kicking lesson! ^__^

^_^ Ohh yeah! The next target is the single speed Bontrager hub!!!! Found one at a LBS - Bikelab at Cagayan De Oro City! Though I am a fan of freeride and downhill, I was with BMX park bikers the past few weeks, so I decided to setup my HARO V3 into a trials park hybrid rig!
