honestly,i dont know why it was moved as well. you guys deserve to continue the topic (and some off topics) where it really belongs. im moving it back. heck, i'd rather read what you guys have to say than what Gadgets posts in this forum.
hmmm.... tnx admins... well bout bein funny.. its just the lighter side of explainin things, plus its not to technically jargoned that by the time u actually try it u end up crashin n burnin cuz u couldnt focus , cuz u wer tryin to remember stuff at 65kph and dribbling like pam anderson on the treadmill? would it...? lol ... see...........
extendead ..... wow REPACK! u know your history books very well i see..... hehehe... and wow bret tippie hehehehe.. K2 animal on xvert ti= gwapo oldschool FR rig... now extinct!
Extendead is right tho.....its a lot more fun to ride with a smile even without a complete set of teeth due to crashes, than riding too seriously that u forget that cycling as a sport should be "FUN".... thats why ur hooked ... hehehe
when did phil. DH begun?? who was the guinea pig at that time?? hehehe
RP DH scene? it was here since 1993ish.....then the first few nationals aside from the asian dh cup always held in danao, cebu... heheheh, during 96 i was kinda the lab rat... when i started racing i ahd only 2 demons 1 named arjuna and the other named ricky and its now 2007 everytime i strap my helmet i hear their voices inside(torture), yetiman was "The Tank" back then he was the MX-DH crossbreed, and of course our brethren joseph o(the devil rides giant)... then boyet n james were still together then came edmund mangaser n the rest of the crew...i remember back then when manila DH racers use to go to provinvial nationals it was hell of fun cuz everybody was united, no politics no factions.... then a good round of beers would close the day.... and nothing else mattered after..........
i only knew the last 10 years.. hehehe
hehehe the last ten years of DH was all politics, i did not major in that eh.... i stuck to what i know best... trail riding .... its all i know eh....
im that old??
yes 1 decade already and you still close your eyes in mid-flight! godamit peng drink bonamine! i dont know how to cure you....... Pweh! hehehehehe....
was that the rockies?
Extendead is like a curse, everytime we ride we end up disaster! from urban attack disasters to trail disasters and even getting lost in makiling! and rocketman turning into a horse hahahaha.... no thats not the rockies thats the security guard of greenbelt running after you again during new years day!.............
imagine having a reunion.............. lol............. red horse is gonna play a major part in this undertaking.... theres gonna be a lot of beer, grilled food, harder liquor, herbs, bikes, fists, knives, broken bottles, and more fists...... lol i miss the good old days... after every ride the bbq grill is always full and the coolers are frozen with beer, or until someone passes out and swims in his own puke which creates very incriminating images which he/she will deny until his next of kin!..... then next day u wake up and ride again and again... it will drive you crazy in the first 6 months but after 4-10 yrs dnt worry... crazy is just routine, and would you give up routine that makes you smile like a 5 yr old everytime? hehehe.... i thought so....
** for every tech question asked here, ill try to study the newer DH designs and maybe even get to test a few but just keep em coming.... DH bikes are basic, its push-pull principles make it simple but the different suspension designs today have specific applications unlike the old FS technologies... the 1 FS design concept to conquer all, but MTB manufacturers decided they were not gonna make money that way so now we have XC , AM , FR, DH... wow 4 categories to choose from..... and mtb technology today evolves at a rate same as cellhpones.. every quarter there is something new.........( We didnt have that privelege before).
I'm not a expert in economics, financial trends, or whatever field that involves number crunching... but I've been wondering why that aging Boxxer World Cup at the back of Paulina's store still costs almost P 70,000.
Most of the time, prices for components go down as the years pass and the next year models come in... not so for this Boxxer.
Extendead once asked me this question WHILE WE WERE WITHIN PAULINA'S HEARING RANGE.
Inakupow!!! Needless to say, the woman was really pissed with us. Hehehehe.
The more things change, the more they stay insane.
extendead hahahahah..... arjuna designed that race course in palawan... thats the 35 footer gap that swallows slow-ass riders (Trans: lumalamon ng rider pag mabagal bwelo) it ate nilo and a few others........... lol
arjuna saulo has a reputation of pulling-off insane lines at breakneck speeds (Trans: lakas tumira pag sumablay bali-leeg!!!!!!!) lol.............true he is now arjuna montana.... you figure it out!

@papa arnel - my da bomb tribal bar got bent down after hitting the long gap in the SMlight big gap in maarat... also got a spained ankle from the impact.. fox vanilla rc naubos installed in the trixxter before...
things like this happen, i remember a rhyno handlebar before got torn apart during the pasaway days...
@ santino.......... see! disaster in just seconds....
and about that 70k world cup , i think its loaded with holy oil from the holy land, and the stanctions are made by RST (RockShock Technology)lol..... hell i dunno! hahahahaha extendead neil said "DONT BE RUDE!".... lol
..............hmmmmmmmm interesting......... now u got me thinking bout the logo n the xc helmet thing...... hmmmmmm .... hahaha
**Why is it that as one tries to push the boundaries to the limits, and as you get faster ripping out smooth lines and go for bigger and sicker air. One starts to sense the simillarity of playing catch with a live grenade and riding your dh bike......? i mean its a one miss u die rule ryt? both activities may maime,impale, kill, dismember,dislocate,paralyze in just a split second?... heheheh... to some people thats fun to others its crazy....
hey extendead dnt forget the famous .....INSTANT JUNGLE HANDLEBAR REPAIR METHOD!
If u break ur bars in the middle of the trail .. go walk it out.. DO NOT! I REPEAT DO NOT TRY TO RECONNECT YOUR BARS OR TRY RIDING DOWN IN THAT CONDITION!.....
.....hAve u ever been stabbed by a 1" ice pick? iv witnessed a few.. but never took one yet heheheeheh.... (high resale value for internal organs!!!) ... i got scraped ,crazy pipe ripped my jersey and nemesis body armor and gave me a 4 stitch near my armpit, i didnt panic (Trans: di naman lumabas Kanin at ulam) so i was ok..... lol
@ rocketman... hehe tonton... lol ... MMDA outpost...lol....si extendead "pedestrian hazard", i once witnessed extendead mow down an old elderly lady at ansons makati after landing he lost control cuz he still had his eyes closed so we watched the old lady panic "patintero style" (normal reaction by ped-x when alerted to incoming dh bikes).. then .. kaboom! CONTACT!... we all stayed away laughing our ass out while he explains his actions to the old lady and the security guard!....... lol
then another pedestrian about to ride the jeep near rcbc makati..... then that night u sideswiped an old drunk man on a huffy bike... the drunk crashed then cursed at peng like super scandalous as extendead just played deaf ...we all turned and separated while shouting... HE's NOT WITH US! (Di namin kasama yan!).... hahayz...
I have a boyfriend, who was born with one leg shorter than the other (10 mm). Yes, I measured his leg because I love him dearly. The Brokeback movement is very hip these days anyway.
........................We've been thinking of using crankarms, 165 mm for the left/175 mm for the right, to help him gain the upper hand for sprints.
And to help him even further, we've been thinking of using the old Shimano Biopace chainrings to synchronize his spin with the uneven crankarms.
Will this setup work?
...............No it wont... the imbalance of crank lengths will not deliver a balanced stroke thus rocking the bike at high sprinting speeds. the best option to compensate for that 10mm is .... CUSTOMIZED SHOES.... one shoe is 10mm thicker ... believe me weve tried that @ Jimi's Monster garage n machineshop ...... hehehehe.....the down stroke of the longer arm will create momentum at highspeeds enough to create distortions on the bikes forward motion and affect handling performance....
hehehe..... balanced bike for a balanced ride, just like breastmilk........ ;D
quite aerodynamic.... and to think i was loaded with ginebra... heheeh
Lester is more aerodynamic. even clad in womens clothes he can still perform at optimal speeds with less wind drag... to bad he broke his nose, neck, back.......... he is now a lunatic.. but he is still alive and well in baguio.....
stealthwanderer: Ayan yung matagal ko na gusto itanong: 1 Hour ride, mabasa ng ulan o' mabasa ng pawis sa loob ng kapote. Baka kasi ako lang nageenjoy sa ulan kasi may paliguan pagdating sa trabaho, hahah.

anthrax76: sa ngayon, mag jacket lang ako kapag umuulan at mahangin. kasi masakit sa balat ang matulin na ulan tsaka malakas makababa ng core temperature ang wind chill.
Aug 10, 2019 22:17:32 GMT 8
anthrax76: pero kung normal na ulan, 'di naman mahangin, hanggang mabasa na lang ako ng ulan okey lang. although i minimize kung gano katagal ako exposed. anything more than an hour, medyo delikado.

konablack: gamit ko two-piece raincoat, dehins lang sya ideal kung may backpack ka
Aug 13, 2019 7:39:14 GMT 8
oniechan: altered poncho..dahil ng backpack..bawas ng haba sa likod at sa side..mas malamig compared sa 2-pc na raincoat....
Aug 13, 2019 11:27:45 GMT 8
anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.
Aug 15, 2019 23:44:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.
Aug 24, 2019 4:32:23 GMT 8
lefty: Na experience nyo na sir yung pagbaba mo ng mabilis sa tulay biglang may malakas na crosswind tapos umangat yung front wheel? Nangyari na sa kin once pagbaba ko ng Southpeak. Mga March yun last year, mahangin talaga around that time last year.
Aug 24, 2019 8:50:45 GMT 8
lefty: Umangat ng konti na parang tinulak ng konti pa-side. Buti na control ko at di ako sumemplang. Nangyayari ba talaga ito normally? First time ko naka-experience nun.
Aug 24, 2019 8:56:30 GMT 8
anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.

corollafreak: wassup!!! long time no hear dito =D

stealthwanderer: Hello! Meron bang pumapasok around Greenhills? If so, saan kayo nagpapark ng bike?
Aug 27, 2019 17:54:27 GMT 8
anthrax76: @cf!!! uy kumusta na?
Aug 28, 2019 0:01:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: stealthwanderer, dati may parking ang bikes dun from firefly brigade, sa parking sa harap. pero ginawa na yata yun so dehins ko alam kung saan nalipat. try ko magtanong minsan kapag napasyal ako.
Aug 28, 2019 0:02:48 GMT 8
konablack: wala na yung parking spot ng firefly brigade doon
