Hell Yeah!!! eventho’  we started late hehehe (nearly 2 hours late than the originally planned ride time) but hey it was drizzling & roads are kinda wet so it pays to wait an hour or two.

The route : CM – Chow Kit – BB – Bangsar

Ups : We conquered all 3 lanes (as we rode slowly..hehehe santai beb)

Downs : Darn coppers on loud speaker, “Basikal jalan, jalan keluar dari Bukit Bintang” & Stupid Pavilion security

The thrill : Cops wanna get some – get some,  broken spokes.

…..and some pics below.

Get Ready For The Mass!!!!

Ok, here’s a recap for those who couldn’t make it for the lat mass ride. 80+ cyclist conquered the roads of KL showing the general public that they deserved a fair share of enjoying the pot holes path we called KL roads.

More cyclist are expected to turn out this time around so don’t miss this opportunity to witness and to experience the breathtaking moments yourself.

Who would put brakes on their keirin bike?

8 Jun

Professional keirin riders of course but why????

Why would they? Because they go too fast when they train on the road (if they need to train on the road, since the velodromes there are open all year). No matter what, riding with brakes gives you more options for stopping, and you can stop in a shorter distance in more conditions than just using your legs to halt the fixed gear.

Those pro keirin riders get paid pretty well, and they frequently race into their later thirties. Though crashes are frequent in actual racing, that’s just part of the job. Getting injured because of a crash on the road doesn’t pay the bills.

A lot of keirin builders also make “training” bikes: fixed gear bikes that are designed to accept brakes front and rear, sometimes with provision for fenders. These bikes do not meet regulations for the keirin circuit, but they are meant to give keirin riders an affordable and suitable training tool for the road.

If you really wanted to ride the certified keirin bike on the road with brakes, you could get something like this precision product made in Japan (photos courtesy of famed keirin rider Koh Annoura). The special mounts allow you to temporarily mount regular road brakes to the bike without altering the bike or even damaging the paint. Cheaper (and kinda cheesy) versions have been available for years in Japan, and I believe Soma will be debuting its version of this brake mounting real soon.
