FauziOhFauzi.

our boy Fauzi went over the bars on a recent shoot im currently doing. thats what you get homie for fitting 22.2 bars on a 25.4 stem.

when you fall, get back up.

a date with derailleurs & brakes.

the Merckx with full Campy for Eddy Merckx groupset.

the Bianchi with full Campy groupset cept for the brake levers.

traffic stop.

Mr Howy on the Merckx.

the last stop.

it was already 9pm and i was itching for a ride so i called up Howy to see if he’s up for one. he agreed and we met. i took the Bianchi,he took the Merckx. went from Siglap all the way to Haji Lane with the thought of having a drink there. upon reaching we felt that we did’nt cycle enough thou it was already about 25km in. we went on and finally stop for a drink over at Stamford House.

had a few drinks & we left. the ride back home was even faster with smooth traffic thanks to a few nice bus & car drivers. we spent about 2hrs for the whole ride.

i think this is gonna be the start of something good, it might even be  a weekly event.

new ride, new ride.

the GOrilla will be gone in a few days so Chris from my fav LBS, TR bikes, kindly loaned me his minivelo. rode this bad boy back home from the workshop a while ago & it feels awesome. lesser effort for hops but more effort for distance cycling. well, you can’t have the best of both world.

the awesome quarry view.

the last drop, Cobra trail. (it was scary even with front&rear brakes)

oasis in the form of a truck.

rest time.

‘red ‘coconut.

its been awhile since i got up at 6am to head out for a ride. wait, never! but this time was different. i only had about an hour of sleep but i was full of energy. so meeting time was at 7.30am over at Changi Ferry Point and i got there at around 7.15am. i was that excited, the thought of going into trails was enough to get me to ride as fast as i could from Tampines to Changi. there i met up with Hakim and the freeride guys. & the bike lineup this morning was a different sight. instead of me & hakim being the odd ones out. the bike lineup was even. we decided to let the fixed gears rest and brought out the freerides.

skip forward after the 20-30mins boat ride, we were already unloading our bikes into Pulau Ubin. cycled for about 15mins till we reach the infamous Ketam trails. i didn’t manage to capture any stills during the trail as my phone was in one of the guys bags. we spent a good 30-45mins in the trail going up and down the whole way.

when we got out the sight of a lorry filled with coconuts was like a dream. thirst quenchers!. had some local coconuts where the insides were red instead of the normal earth tone. apparently like the vendors said, it can only be found in Ubin.

after filling up on fluids & a good hour rest we finally made our way back to the jetty to head back to mainland. had a good brunch over at Changi Village and cycled back home where i had some proper shut eye.

again, we will be back for more dirt.

once again me & the freeride boys had a night offroad session & Hakim decided to join in. this time i came prepared, armed with my DSLR i managed to capture a few stills of hakim riding down. homeboy was having too much fun with his Butcher fitted with new Krads, jumping & sliding at every chance he got.

i think im hooked on offroading.

a lil video of how it looks like riding offroad at night.

some outtakes of Zack’s run.
