i know i should probably use one, but maybe b/c i smoke the fumes don't bother me that much. and except for the infrequent city ride i do with some of the guys here on sundays, i usually road bike when the traffic flow is very light, like late at night
finally got an air filter...sort of like a a compulsive buy at a bike shop last sunday hehehe, yung setlaz na neoprene ba...ok pala. suddenly i found myself more "intimate" with my lungs and how i breathed
but best thing was, i was breathing (at least 95% of the time) nice, clean-smelling charcoal-filtered air ;D ;D ;D
Guys how old are your filters na ba? sa packaging ng setlaz, every 6 months pakuluin mo lang daw ang filter...guess that's to reactivate the carbon
anyway have washed my filter only once pa lang after 4.5 hrs of use...ok lang ba to? are your filters coming apart na ba? either way, sure, would be glad to pool w/ u for replacement filters as long as i don't have to buy more than 3-5 at a time
Gulli, I'm not that familiar with Setlaz filter but from what I heard is that you are supposed to boil them once in a while - I think to remove the pollution/dirt more than to activate the charcoal.
the package didn't specify the reason for the boiling kasi...naisip ko lang dahil for practical reasons, i can't wait for 6 months (and 6 months of accumulated sweat and saliva!) before washing the mask or the filter hehehe ;D
almost all the bikes shops i go to carry the zefal model...powerbikes, extreme, speedgear, velocity, not sure i saw it at all-terra. maybe kings too but while i buy a lot of stuff from them, i've never actually stepped inside their shop kaya di ako sure. price...i think it was around 1-1.3k but not very sure
hehe kaya pala sinasabi ni calamity na masyado ka daw sosi na pumunta quiapo ha sir? yung biz transactions nyo ay sa starbucks pa ata hehe. i-buko daw ba si gulli ;D
pero seriously dusa talaga mag-bike o mag-commute dun. sobra hassle.
ganda mga presyo ni Kings brad pero ubos oras ko kung pupunta pa ako sa quiapo...just too time consuming. kaya nakikiusap na lang ako, kasi halos kapitbahay lang kami sa isang kapatid ni calamity. ok for as long as specific ang order ko

Yep, been going to UP from Fairview via Commonwealth and its very HARD to breathe! Especially when those big old busses cut from the right to the bike lane. Waa!
But 1k for air filter is too much for me. Anyone tried the cheap cloth-type mask? or the traffic-lespu man-metro-aide type filter? Or how about surgical masks?
What actually took place is this: I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn't work. So I quit being a "law man" so that I could be God's man. Christ's life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. Gal.2:19
man, thats elementary... if its bad, avoid it with possible way of avoiding it like wearing mask or something... if you dont care about the temple of the Lord, which is our body, well suffer when its too late... this world we're livin is getting worst... like s#@t man... phillipines is one of the most polluted country in the world... malapit na tayo humilera sa mexico... darn man! corrupt country pa? whats next? magbibike nalang ako.... wearing a mask of cors...
anthrax76: i'll just state the facts ha, i'm not bashing. alagaan mo lang yung pivots. inefficient kasi ang URT, if you think about it, active ang suspension kapag nakaupo ka lang. kasi kapag nakatayo ka at tense yung katawan, rider talaga yung shock absorber.
