Just a snapshot of my bike


Magnified version of the breakdown.

The time showed 8.00am when the phone rang and it was zaki who called. he said he is on the way to the meeting point at Politeknik Tuanku syed Sirajuddin (Poli Perlis). Later after that when i checked the SMS another new rider is on the way and his name is Farhan, a lecturer at UUM.
They started to assemble the front tire and checked the drivetrain setting. The ride began at 8.30+- and the first obstacle appeared just 15 minutes after that when zaki's bike suffered a flat tyre. Abg din then rushed back to my house (Quarters) to take the air pump and tube. It turned up that the tube size is for 1.95 but zaki's panaracer is 2.1. He (Zaki) told us to proceed with the ride as he dont want to be the culprit hahahaha.... of not riding today.

Abg din, Farhan and I continue with the ride and then my stem got loosen and the handlebar revolves. I stopped right away and tighten the nuts and the ride continues..... and we took the wrong route and have to ride back to the starting of the route. Suprisingly zaki managed to fixed the tyre so that it suits well.
Then the first uphill came up, quite tiring though that zaki and me stopped once. Abg din and farhan were up in front and they stopped at the hill's peak for drinks.
We continued after 10 minutes of breath catching activity.
The next stage of the ride is medium(difficulty level) and we managed to discover new trail for the upcoming ride. I would like to welcome farhan to the group.
