RTW 13.01.2009

Went out at 0651 hours.

Stats today (to):
  • Riding to work, distance covered 12.7 km.
  • Average speed is at 20.4 km/h. Not really pushing for my speed this morning. Rather, more to enjoying a smooth ride.
  • Max speed 38.4 km/h
  • Travel time 37 min 12 sec. I'd say the average for past few rides is about 37 minutes.
Tires kept at 50 psi.
Changed the rear tire to Larsen TT last night (finally!).
Real smooth rolling. I'm beginning to like it.

I'm starting to think about rebuilding my Schwinn Mesa for RTW.
8 speed SRAM SX 5, LX V-brakes.
Coupled with Larsen TT's, it would be a lighter bike setup.
Problem is, where would I stash it at home?

Number of good doggies: 5 including 2 Rottweilers. Scary.

Rasa ada sedikit cuak sebab headtube ada retak (pendek).
Betul, frame tu ada simpan nostalgia.
Kebetulan masa mula² pasang Schwinn tu, aku beli sekenhen SRAM SX5 8 spd shifter/RD/cassette/chain dengan harga murah. Agak mudah untuk dipasang dan tak perlu tune pun masa mula-mula pasang. Aku rasa teruja la pulak dgn SRAM.
Dah tu, maka aku pun buat Bianchi dgn kompnonen SRAM/Avid/RockShox/Truvativ.
Bukan kerna anti-Shimano ataupun apa-apa teori konspirasi yang lain.
