    napansin ko lang, tumipid na nga ako sa gas. ever since i got this bike, halos di ko na dina-drive yung car ko...

    i'm glad you're having fun both building your bike tsaka reaping the rewards.

    laki talaga tipid mo sa gas, not to mention yung exercise...spring na dito, so i can start riding my bike to work again.

    hey, if you ever pasyal dito, let me know, i'll take you to some insane trails...from mt. tam to the sierras, pero limited na lang ako sa XC, i can't afford any more broken bones.

    OT: if you're ever in hawaii, at gusto mo ng custom surfboard, let me know also, kasi yung isang friend ko dun used to carve boards for sunny garcia, i'll hook you up.

    nabuhay pala tong thread na to... share ko din yun mtb ko na nirepaint ko.. nothing special sa mga parts nito, yun gearset ko lang ang branded.. shimano na entry level lang.

    btw, baka meron sa inyo may alam kung saan yun gumagawa ng frames ng bike sa may cainta or marikina area ata daw yun.

    Gusto na rin ng bike.. pero ano bang tawag dun sa bikes na nkikita dito sa metro manila ... yung mga medyo malalapad ang tires pero nakataas ang manubela, dahil sa haba ng shocks sa unahan... saka medyo mahaba din manubela. Ang itsura nya actually ay parang motorbike na Enduro. Yan sana ang gusto kong bilin.

    Meron din ako dating bike... pero ordinary lang.. ang natatandaan ko lang don eh... GT yung frame. (2nd hand ko lang nabili yung dati)

    man you're right about that one, talked to a guy going back and forth there nasa likod lang daw ng house niya yung trail kakainggit, dito i have to bike at least 15k amidst crazy jeepney and truck drivers not to mention yung pollution just to get to the trails, used to bring a car to shorten the city biking pero lately di na kasi lahat ng kasama ku padyak na from their place, what i want to visit is the northshore scene, i bet meron din diyan, me and my friends actually tried doing those ladder/beam type platforms hirap lang kasi bantayan ninanakaw yung kahoy namin kakainis

    sunny garcia?!?! your friend must really be good, he's one of the top local surfers in hawaii eh. i actually have a shortboard na, got it from an australian surfer but selling surfboards here might be a good business, malaki na rin ang surfing community dito and there's only two shapers here that i know of medyo kulang lang pa ng skills sa shaping hehe thanks for the offer cge maybe in the near future ill take you up on it ;) btw how much kaya pashape dun sa friend mu

    johnwilkie - along jprizal near corner of concepcion, owner is Israel tel no - 9347826

    joven - coming from sta lu, take marcos hiway going to katipunan, make a right across santolan st (yung may 711 sa corner) joven is on the left side approx 200m from marcos hiway - left the number at my previous cell eh

    mga pang urban freeride siguro yun - triple clamp forks, high rise handlebars at least 2.3in tires

    btw GT had an exhibit at powerplant mall last sun, the great Hans Rey was there and nagdemo siya ng trials riding dang ang galing maskina old guy na, he was jumping over high tables, unto the pickup and back and even jumped over 2 volunteers, at least i got him to autograph my race jersey hehe
