My new ride

Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like you to meet...

...Fifi. Hehheh, yeah... Li-Ann commented why such a manja name.

I have moved on to the dark side (or rather the red side) of SRAM.

Phil from Runners World Northbridge was very nice to give me the holder (which costs A$25) for the cyclecomputer for free.

These aerodynamics are bound to slice through the wind!

I hope this investment will help me cut at least 10 minutes off my bike split at Langkawi IM 2010.

Wow, position correct or not? Show the elbow angle, want to see.

Hehheh, Sofian. Phil from the shop and I did spend about 30-45 minutes making the adjustments to suit my measurements. And I did take note of the 90 degree elbow angle.

No picture lah, sorry. Will have to wait until someone is free to take picture of me cycling, as I don't have a bike stand hehheh.

Looks like you are ready then. Apparently there is a Marathon in Perth in Aug. IM Veteran Ong and Jap Sam are going. I told them the Marathon (which u did) is already over.

kev said...

Yup, that's City to Surf on August 30th. The traditional event is 12km, which I'll be doing (not enough training to do another marathon lah). Initially planned to do the half marathon, but it starts 2.5 hours earlier and all my friends are doing the 12km.

All distances start at Perth City and end at City Beach, then we take a free bus service back. Last year's turnout was over 36,000 participants in total.
