2012 Jerai Enduro DH


It has been awhile...

I know.. har har har

This was the latest event I had joined.

My Nickelboy was in  place. 69er with 29er 2.1 Bontrager XR3 front tire & 26er 2.55 WTB Weirwolf at the back.

Haha good stuff but i need bigger front tire to get all the grip possible. but with this setup.. I managed to have fun...

Front 29er really does the trick,, Good rolling over & love it man & give a bit of bravery boost.. At least for me.

Thanks to Northern MTB kings... Jitra lads, Alor Setar dudes & many more. They have done a great job to organize & prepared the trail for this event. Will do another time  shortly... but this time.. more fat at the front.

hmm soon, I think ill bring my MR big 29er Hardtail to climb up & go down with this trail. Mr Sufian's Idea... All the usual clan.. let us get ready .. har har har

I have the trail & pictures. Enjoy guys..

there are video as well in the "everytrail" link.. have a look at them please.. 

Event date: 2012 Deepavali 13th Nov.
Gathering point. Titi Hayun Parking area

Parked the car- bikes on the lorry-lorry to JErai resort & then down we go..

X Country really means???


Discover many parts of the world , is really something i look forward to & eager to go & see.

Yesterday , i had a conversation with 1 of this IFKM employee about biking.

I said , i do MTB n like "cross country " style..
He said , you bike to where?

I said, like behind IFKM through jungle & so on.
He said, that is not X country, that is more like a X state.

Ha ha ha.. Then it struck me...

Yeah.. for people whom never do outdoors or even school sports events.. might thing this way...

They never heard or heard it before but totally being ignorance.

Last time : no merentas desa for them in school.

N come to think about it.. why on earth "Larian Merentas Desa"= translate to "cross country run"????

Semak kepala memikior heheh..

Anyway.. it is one side of the story.

Many people might have different interpretation on a thing. different angle & come from diff experience & condition. Many variables involved.

So for me, with some biking experience... X country means = go travel about with anything u can grab on, but to cover details & experience true state of natures & even cultures,, biking will be the best means.

As they cover most area. ( almost everywhere). U can go here & there, 70% ride on & 30% pikul on you.. or any other combination.
Somehow the bike will help & let u enjoy the area better. what do u think?? u decide..

Last weekend.

Wang Kelian to a village in Satun & N Back. Beautiful scenery.  & if i travel by my mother trucker.. ill cover more area but.. less detail.

He He HE.. it was fun going through those nature rich country side like scene....SubhanaAllah.

Then the next day. Kulim Sg lembu K2 & Mengkuan g Dam.. Damn...

ZAin menyesal ikut ...but got to learn new stuff. i hope..

step height in lives


Done several events lately & too lazy to update
The latest Birut Jam .free plate
done felda jamborace as well & that was a killer. Joining the race group hehe
after 5 min.. you are riding alone... har har har.

with my new 29er rig.. im starting building up fun time with Mr Big
my secret weapon TF is still in the workshop waiting for parts from TREK. damn this dealer.. it is almost 2 months already.
i had another bike comleted build up . AM stuff. Syndicate style with nickel.
Recently done but no time to test on "the cent".
Been waitin for it to be ready to try at KIARA  but was put down & only able to bring my 29er .
& surprisingly... this 29er give me the brave to go down those sick decents... & fast too,.. cant believe it..

Several visits to the TTDI had brave me out to try those technical fun stuff & the 29er tops it all for me.. SOon to try the nickel... har har har..insyaAllah

SO in total.. i have working fine new rig . a 29er = Mr Big
working but yet to be try on " The cent"  = AM syndicate group  nickel
& my berlemoih TF waiting for new rocker.... at tokkun.. huwaaaa

Kind of in love with 29 .. felt heavy but somehow this Mr goes faster. DH is faster here ( simple straight line with obstacle).. average jamborace type.. this stupid thing goes straight on..

hmm.. later.. ill upgrade my 26 to 69  & looking for part to do that with my TF.
i love the fast rolling & extra carried momentum... & still want to accelerate faster after corner... so the back will stay 26..

hmm MY AM will go the same too i guess... hah.. who cares.....

will see...

Update for today..

Last event after Cameron Highland..

too lazy to update 2nd  part of Cameron & hardcore meleleh as my secrect weapon was injured & still in the hospital until today... what taking Trek too long to send parts... damn.

I did joined Peace Ride 12 hours Endurance organized by Radak Anventure .
It took place in beautiful scenery area near Gua Tempurung. I love riding there & amazed to find some many nice natural beauty area surrounding.

Registered alone & had stayed with Danish lad for last minute arrangement, Cool company.

Managed to complete 5 rounds of 35km per lap. so total 175KM biking for 12 hours duration.
The cahampion completed 9 rounds = 35x9= 325km. stupid..

Heheh i just managed half of their distance.

Placed myself rank 32 & my plate number is 32.. haha.. lucky..

& for this event.. i bought myself a 29er TREK cobia. ( all my bikes are still sick until today for what ever reason & i had to decide to get a bike for this event & so 29er it is)

Upgrade OEM crank with my XTR power plant & reduced some fat at the RIM & so..

So that was it.. Heavy 29er but with some potential. & the biggest potential is to get fit & strong mybody side heheh

2 minutes after starting. my left arm crank unscrewed. hoh... & damn i was dead last after managed to retighten . Screwed up hehe .. but hei.. Endurance 12 hours.. anything can happen.. so slowly try to catch up the last person & managed at the first hill..

Stopped after 3 laps & had lunch. another round of lap to complete my target & stop again for prayer. ( just as SUnset ride started)

So final lap was a cruisin & torturing my body as i have 3.5 hours to go. SO dragged this DACT rider to go along slowly..
By 1830 we had completed our last lap & the champion finished just moment after that with 9 laps.. stupid...

So, it was fun, 12 hours.
The track was excellent.. looks nothing for a moment but when you had to circle it as many as you can.. it become tough.. never imagined it could be this tough.. many factor contributed.. hahah u know those..

I just tracked my third lap & here it was. slow pace lap.

My first endurance & i gues Malaysia first 12 hours endurance for MTB... i dont know.. looking forward to Ultra MArathon event... but need to be ft for those.

Post outdoor's weekend ( full blown biking all day out)


What a weekend...

Full of stuff Full of stories n the spice n variety of ingredient filled the days.

For saturday 14/1/2012 " mencari datuk kepada thompson punya trail"

-planned to leave kulim by 1800 ending up leaving kulim by 2100.<( actual departing was 2230 from Macdonald Seberang jaya)

-planned to reach homestay at tanah rata by 2300 ending up reaching by 0145 the next day.( biru muka pak sbu nunggu kami kat brinchang. Sorry old man.

-planned pre day sleep= 6 hours ending up only 3 hours as need to get ready by 630 -planned to bike with 6 others but ending up only with 5 as the guide was not keen to ride on the day ( had something else to take care off ogso)

-planned to have fun for the first section of the trail.( habu to ringlet n to the sunlight kebun climb up n 8km DH to pos menson. ( missed the turn to sunlight factory where we start climbin to the peak before DH. Had to climb up extra mile.
How come we missed? The area had a facelift... Totally new with more kebun they had opened. Mampus..

-didnt planned anything but a week before = full of rain. N the day we came = no rain . but  leftovers is still there.So..tanah merah = tanah lecah. It was wet n full of the DH section was with thick mud. 40cm deep. With pickup tires mark... Impossible to go faster,,,, n new skill had to learn... How to Dh in the mudd without toppling... Hehe it was full of fun.. Ape lai.. Jatuh le bang.. Menyungkur cium mud. It took us almost 1 hour to reach menson..( when it is dry u usually go 15-20 minutes dh..

Hahah T be continued

17/1/2012  continue..

-Reached Menson & mingle around a bit.

-Hmm they had improve the area & tarmac all the way to the school.. & no more small fun for rolling section...  there were 2 proton iswara there..  camno???

Reached School & the new adventure began.

CIkgu mad Bin Ibrahim wanna lead us to Kg Rening. According to him, the kg has everything, waterfall, kebun durian & so,, even the lubuk for ikan kelah. but the way to go will be tougher & no looping.. So , we decided to have a go & see what can we discover there. ( bye bye bukit meluat & nice expensive tea session)

We took right on the tarmac after Pos Menson school . About 5-10km passed Kg Leryar ( New build up tmn perumahan) & then turned left heading to Kg Telanok, Kg Teji, & one more kampung, & Kg Trakit, Kg Lemui & Kg Rening. It was deep in the jungle where we can see from the highway... & one sad news.. The area will be used to build a damn soon.( on going) So , i dunno when can we be able to experience those after all these.. sigh...

It was good mixture of tarmac & natural jungle road.
nice water fall & fruits yard.( most of the time DH) So... we were what the hell????? & no looping?? need to come back this way??? i saw several sour face already.. hehe.. ignorant is a bliss... that what i just did... heeheh

The route to Kg Rening is damn real for natural org Asli walking pathway.. Rolling single trail with no flat & NO easy surface to ride the bike on..

We didnt managed to reach Rening as once we reach Trakit, it was almost 1500. we need about 2 hours or more to go out  to the main road i presumed.

2 of our guys decided to stay in one of the river & waited for us to go out. No looping.. old days it was there but the trail had been abandoned due to some reason unknown.

 On the way out, we decided to call for rescue. Ill go out with the guide on his motorcycles & pick my pick up at Habu. The rest will wait  at Kg  Abu/ Kg Rengklas.

Anyway, we had to go out of the natural trail  by bike before i can leave my bike & joined the guide.

There then when trailing i had this moment where my bike went "teng", or "beng".. snapping/ colliding sound. small sound.. checking around & I saw nothing wrong on my bike..

It took about 1hour to reach my car & another hour  to get to them. ( As i slept by the road on the way back) to sleepy to drive.)

Loaded 6 bikes & 6 people on my  lorry, went to Menson School for prayer , light refreshment & relaxing. & By 1900 we had reached habu. Repacking & sttuff  & food time at Tanah Rata.

Decided to drop at Doli Taiping for another round of food intake, but  we reached Taiping Exit at 2300 & we thought it was too late.

I reached my home by 0200 after sending all the passengers home.

The next day ( actually after several hours) The Hardcore meleleh event took place. Aha

To be continued..

Where to fix your faulty expensive watch??

Assalammualaikum.. it is not mine.. dont worry.

My wife .. hehe.
Her grandfather gave her this Longines watch after her good result in PMR almost 15 years back.

Last few months... it finally went down.
 down.. meaning really down.. change battery also cannot.

So, she was sad & looking forward to send anywhere to get this lad fix.

nak hanto Woh Hin le ( Campbell stree Penang) & so on.
Usually , this kind of "pricy" watch.. ada agent yg declare that they the only one can fix & it will cost a fortune. almost similar price of the actual price.. ridiculous... but .. that is how it is now..

So, after scouting around..& finally her father, which is my father in law = Mr Sofian, suggested 1 small shop in Jalan Raja Uda.

Hmm... can this guys fix it??

He look experienced & professional enough to do the job. but????

Anyway.. we submit in just to try our luck.

 Mr Sofian : the informer
 The opposite shop
The shop

As usual. they will try to troubleshoot & suggest cause of problem. 
after 2 weeks, he called. Sudah siap  huh????? how come?? heheh

Of course, they found the defect part, order a new one ( not sure either original or not) & then fix them.   Swiss made ka, italy made ka, china made ka?? semua da part.. so .. hanto je la kat local expert macam depa ni.. Amazing..
I really recommended this one. they even sell old wall clock, kuku clock,  used ROLEX.. & so on..  very small shop & yes.. no confident to go in if no one informing you... seriously..
But now, my wife watch is working work & back to life.

Im sure.. many other shop & tua tua apek yg capable of fixing those... We just need to find them...

ENjoy guys.

They have a blogspot as well.

Later ill put the link.
