Today,planned nak pi bukit 3M+Infineon+Padang Cina & Bukit rimau. Invited My jiran & amir & the gang, at last yang tinggal hanya aku ngan usop transformer. Okle tu.
Meeting point Kedai breakfast kelapa sawit kat sungai ulor.
The track was fun.
Today is the first testing mini track for "Gallopin Thug"
Afer final adjustment to rider's own custom, she is currently using half of the pencil color part. (Installed handle bar & long stem from PC to GT)
Bingo, the adjustment suited my riding. The fact that the lock on the front fork working perfectly to help on climbing. The bike felt strong & easy to control. Downhill performance was awesome. big bike, long wheel base = more stable. Yehee,,,
During the journey, little de tour due to too seronok turun bukit sampai terlupe simpang.. carik sini sana tak jupe give up,, naik balik then continue with the original track,,
enough for today.
Tomorrow insyaALLah will join Geng KHT & gerek bukit pi gng pongsu,
Guys, try this track for training & ( MIni Jamboree)build up stamina. Got 3 main hils.. landai tapi panjang. It did squeezed my performance performance to up 1 notch. Please refer everytrai for detail. you can even download the GPX file into your garmin or any GPS device to follow the route.
Check on the Interactive trail by cicking play button on the widget attached,
the day initial plan was shifted to a simple route instead of rough 15km. Last minute pull out of co riders, the test was forced to be short as rider lost motivation to ride on his own.
the track around the settling area was chosen.
with downhill swetup, the chassis feel a bit weird due to high setup of fork & the 18.5 size.
straight line sprint was not comfortable as rider felt movement of the power plant ( legs) are limited & constraint.Need wider handle bar to balance out the high center of gravity on the front wheel setup.It feels hard to turn with current handle bar.
Climbing looks to be a bit tough due to the big body & higher centre of gravity. Downhill looks great & easy to maneuver & the new xt v brake give more confident to rider on stopping force .
FURTHER TESTs & small adjustments are required to setup the bike for the rider on this coming jamboree in kedah.
Of course ,the full own track test program will then verify either the new challenger fit to enter the game.
It's predecesor pencil color is put to rest to give way to the new GT it's valuable mileage.
From the test then, the decision will be made.
HEre is the performance of the immature test today.
No defined track. Only mile collection & chassis shakedown.
what can i say, new babay was born yesterday not with life one yet, but with passion
Amin Merida aka "basikal raket" my own classified of his ride,wanna upgrade his second bike with some high ends products.As a result, scavengers like me get the worm in the morning.Even though the worms are not fresh but still in good shape & in high performance.
He sell to me his rims together with hubs & rotors ( Xero),B7 mechanical Disc Brake & XCR front absorber & few other stuff. Hmm i then top up a bit to complete the other bike from whatever RScycle Tokun can provide to me.The outcome, two pretty babeh ( from the eye of the beholder). My Pencil color,(Bianchi) are equipped with Amin rims & disc brakes. The new GT outpost ( 2nd hand body from Zam KHT) are equipped with Amin Absorber & other new stuff from RScycle. 18.5 size with downhill setup absorber,the leashed GT looks hungry for it's maiden ride.She will be introduced in Kedah Jamboree for her first event of a kind insyaAllah. Now, i shall call her "gallopin thug"
Yeay.. that is all i can afford & very happy with the new born.
ENjoy mi...i mean i enjoy... you guys can also ... heheh
Completed the track at 1109. Thanks to Allah again, nothing happen to me except of being tired & exhausted. No leg cramp, & Kurma bar ( buah kurma la)had served me good to supply fuel to burn.
Here it goes " I like the track, but not the organizers" i like the hills but not the path with all the shoe prints i like the day but the event sucks i certainly didnt like the foods & nobody does how rm50 can come out with that rice ,chicken & egg & only that, heheh organizer sure enjoy duit lebat.
Hahaha,, my thought & my thought only. Overall the event is a bit of a mess.
firstly they lied about the track, very bad info about the event, actually almost no info, finishing line is a dead thing.
What save the day was the sound of the DJ & that live band. apart from it. nothin & nothin at all. Y?
way to improve next time.
story of my journey is kind of fun.
we begin with Saturday afternoon
duduk kat T hotel.. very nice hotel.almost everyone there were bikers who joined the event.
