Bike Financing

Ever since I learned about genuine parts and brands of mountain bikes, I already knew that it will take something to finance my hobby. Other than sponsorships, I knew that I must find other means, options or any other way to continuously enjoy my hobby. Genuine parts at my location are scarce, if you could find one, they either sell it expensive or a second hand deal. Though the internet is flocked with online stores to maximize option in hunting for best deals for these genuine parts. I will be needing the Best Business Credit Cards also.

With the evolution of technology applicable to mountain biking, parts are getting lighter and durable. But as the excitement grows, so as inflation. It is like a tag that says "Prices are subject to change without prior notice". And waiting for the year end sales is always on the list to get the best parts of the current season. If you want to be in pace with the technology, you got to have a good funding. And thank you Lord I found mine! There is my wife who is so supportive, my blogging and my home based small scale business that is giving me the resources that is helping me to enjoy my mountain biking. Though everything is not easy money, I just consider it a challenge that is giving me the reason to value all the outcome of our efforts. :)

Diabolous de Second

I've been using this unknown brand of stem on my mountain bike, and ever since it was installed I never had a problem with its functionality. But over time I was dreamin to have a Thomson or a Raceface stem on my bike to make sure that my parts are designed for my style.

After 5 years with my unknown eagle stem, got a good call for a good old but new model Race Face Diablolous 2 stem at a price affordable than Thomson. To my surprise it is even lighter on my bike than in my pocket. ^^

Board and Lodging

Looking for a place to park your two wheeled machine and a thrilled rider on a alien city like San Francisco. One may be interested with this so called san francisco vacation rentals list. Though Such city is really and alien to me, I want to try it someday, after all mountain biking is really more exciting on a alien territory. The word exploration gets really used up sprinkled with fun most especially peace and order situation is a two thumbs up. And if you have a web tool such as this San Francisco Vacation rental list, the pain of all after leisure loss coins is a thing of the past.

I always wish that the evolution in mountain biking is not only focus with the machines, ramps, trails and riders but also with everything that is connected to it. As long as it has a significant factor no matter how small. It may be with nature, economic or political factor. If this factors are in pace with the evolution of our sport, then our biking community would not only be a community of bikers but a community of bikers for the community! Just a cool wind of airbnb in the atmosphere!

Missing Route

It's almost a month since the last time we took a ride on one of the best newbie downhill trail in our village. It was a trail that we explored on foot that also bestowed some unlikely looks of nature being raped! Though that part of sight seeing is none of our great concern I just hope that people at this vicinity would realize that this mountain is dying due to rampant illegal logging and "Kaingin".

As for the bikers who had fun on this session, they paid the entrance ticket with a kilometer of push and lift! :)
