New (green) Bicycle


at last, some time off school work to do some blogging. It’s been like 8 days since the last. #roar. And I realised I keep adding hashes in front of random words. #funny hur hur.

Now on to the main point of this post. Image of my old bicycle that lasted me like since my primary school days. Not all the parts where from like long ago. Some of the older parts were replaced due to wear and tear, and CY contributed quite a few parts too. The main items that are really old = ‘Tank’ frame, front suspension, 8-speed shifters/brake levers, rear derailleur, handle bar. Erm, I think that’s about it.

Finally, like finally, my ‘new’ bicycle is here. ‘New’ because it is not actually new. Some of the parts have been ‘recycled’.

New parts =

  • Shimano SLX Shifter (9-speed)
  • Shimano XT Rear Derailleur
  • Shimano XT Chain
  • the hot-white seatpost
  • Velo Plush fake-leather seat
  • Handlebar grip
  • Mortop Headset
  • Teflon brake cables and casings (thanks to CY)
2nd hand ‘new’ parts
  • Frame + Fork (thanks to Ali)

Can’t wait to add some human-horsepower to it. Hopefully. Saturday morning, I hope. COM402, you better complete yourself by then. 🙂
