salamat ser...planning for s semi retirement moment for the time being sa pinas..looking for a small engine hatch for personal service when i get home later this year [ baka me alam ka about cars na rin hehe ]
matanung ko na rin ser..medyo off topic but very relevant for my requirement and bike accessory...any ideas saan makaka bili neto dyan sa NCR ?
i think most rear mounted racks pwede, it's just a matter of configuring the hooks and the straps. cars? he he he, just started to own one a couple of years back, totally noob about cars. pero if you're looking for one na lalagyan ng bike sa likod, stay off the Mirage. Mirage G4 GLX yung meron kami, malambot ang rear shock. Anyway, tanong ko sa officemate ko kung ano yung sasakyan niya and how much does his bike weigh.
regarding yung request mo na Orp, hmm....i haven't seen any. pero any bike bell will work. besides, if you're on the trail, you won't use it. as a bike commuter nga, rare ko na gamitin yung bike bell ko, he he. but if you're looking for a headlight, marami naman dito
malambot ang rear suspension ng Mirage, you can check it kahit sa forums (miragepilipinas). pwede naman palitan ng aftermarket pero baka mavoid ang warranty. but yeah, marami siyang features for the price point.
okey lang kahit off topic, ikaw naman ang TS, he he.
I'm also a fan of 2-in-1 devices. Although kapag electronic mas gusto kong hiwalay. kapag nagfail kasi yung isa, i'd lose both. btw, recently i'm okay with having only a headlight. nasira kasi yung bike bell ng commuter bike ko, which i don't miss. my other bike na may bell naman, bihira ko magamit. actually mas gamit ko pambati ng ibang siklista than pedestrians or cars that I'm there.
took awhile before i was able to fit in the frame with the fork attached
i have to remove the rear mech AND the rear brake caliper mount [youtube says rear mech is enough]
watching and doing what youtube says is easier said than done
the pod is huge, bigger than polaris. the problem isnt the space inside but how the pod was designed when fitting some bikes with the fork attached
as somebody would notice, lots of pocket spaces but i wont be putting anything in there anymore as it may add additional weight.[currently total weight with the bike on it is 26kg, bike weighs 11.6kg] the pod is heavy as it isnt a semi hard shell case.
wheels "sits" on top of the bike rather than being strapped on the other side of the pod.
any suggestions to consider for a safety transit is welcome
planning to have some kids play mat floor padding attached using a gorilla tape on corners and bottom of the pod to absorb some impact during luggage transfer by luggage handlers, then have it wrapped using cling film the whole bag.
i have 40kg baggage allowance from emirates and as per emirates offer, unlike other airlines, i wont have to pay anything being a sport equipment baggage or special baggage.emirates will accept it as part of your baggage allowance though it needs to be checked in as a special baggage.
aaah, he he he, i mean lagyan mo ng pool noodles yung frame or fork, anything rounded. ang hassle kasi ng bubble wrap minsan nasisira kapag madikit masyado yung tape, dehins mo na ma-reuse. pool noodles won't pop and you can protect the whole length of the tubes. halos pareho naman ang space na kakainin with bubble wrap
a little something like this (stolen from the interwebz)

ser pansin nyo yung pix meron na pong nakabalot na pool noodles sa frame and fork, acutally me mga sections din nilagyan ko ng flat styro sheets yung ibang areas like fork wheel mounts. the rest eh small and big bubble wraps.
between the frame,and yung wheels na ipapatong me bubble wrap sheet for extra cusion n protection. tapos dun sa wheel bag, nilagyan ko ng flat styro sheet yung saktong location ng brake disc[ di ko na tinanggal]
yung lime green grocery bag, ang laman po nyan eh "peanut" styro foams
unang ipapatong ko on top ng frame yung wheel with the cassette, face down then susunod yung front wheel
