Brondong in the REMAKING.

Brondong has been in the shop for months. 

Many many months.

But it will be ready soon.

I visit Brandong a couple of times a week.


Total custom. 

It's the sprit of steel and bicycle. 

I have to write an essay about myself and mail it to Mr. Dario PEGORETTI. He will interpret it and present it in a beautiful art form on my frame. Of course the dimension of my body is a form one has to fill up, separately. 

I can only appreciate it after riding more than 10 years. How alive a steel frame can be. Rider and bicycle is ONE. 

Relatively heavier than Alu and carbon. Not much heavier than the Titanium. However, in a very long ride (not fast) can be like BUTTER! Face with stuck-out tongue and tightly-closed eyes

After reading this you will want to order one immediately...
coz normally you have to wait for 18 months to get ONE completed.

Christmas ride - take jadi

We planned to ride our favorite route Genting Peres yesterday. However, when we reached Batu 18 Ulu Langat, the road seemed wet due to downpour earlier. For safety reason (reads: laziness) we decided to drive the cycling route by car to Genting Peres down to Pekan Titi all the way to Bandar Kuala Klawang for breakfast at an old-school kopitiam. 

Once in a while not riding a bicycle is fun too 

While driving we then realized how long and severe those climbs are, especially on a bicycle. 

I want to ride more miles in 2015. NEVERTHELESS.

I was humming Maria Carey's All I Want for Christmas is You while shooting this video.

Flood - East Coast

You can bitch about Najib golfing in Hawaii and Anwar holidaying in New Zealand (stand corrected) until the cows come home. However, if you are in Malaysia but can't even lift your fingers from the keyboards to help the flood victims physically, financially or spiritually within your capability, then you are.........
