dear friends,

i forgot my teamkit today...its a sunday am in makati with my bike but no shorts and jersey so cant ride the criterium at Mall of ASIA....oh well...might as well clean bike then take fotos... Grin

left face...thats the Cannondale system six liquigas bike used by bisekletaguy in thailand

right face...this system six was lucky not to get involved in any crashes in thailand Grin

tricks of the trade...veteran of 2 tour of egats..raymond see opted to cover his beautiful campy carbon cranks with bathroom tile no slip stickers to avoid unnecessary scratches when the bike is in transit. Wink

carbon ec90 handlebar with the traditional bend coupled with 12cm ULTRALITES handlepost and the SUPER SIX VOLCANO spacer provided by rextan...allowed bisekletaguy to get rid of the heavy macho controltech handlepost and lighten his bike. ONE SUN and 3 STARS sticker representing my country THE PHILIPPINES given out by AVE CHUA IN THAILAND..thanks ave! Wink

extra room for bisekletaguy...with the 12 cm cateye wired speedometer is a staple in bisekletaguy's bikes

there was a 220kms stage in tour of after 8-1/2 hours on the bike..the new white san marco saddle also resulted in blisters for bisekletaguys soft tissues..immediately after coming home..the saddle was replaced by a well broken in FIZIK aliente gamma...the MAVIC KSYRIUM SL with french hutchinson reflex tires (700 x 20) was puncture free in thailand for duration of race... Wink
