My new ride

Finally I succumbed to the natural sequelae of cycling manic syndrome….from a recreational bike to a serious full suspension mountain bike….and recently fully carbon road bike!

I bought Trek Madone 4.7 from Mr Rahim LeTua last week. Cost me quite some $$$. The bike came with SRAM Rival groupset. Not so high class kind of groupset but I would say great for newbie like me. Wheels, rim & stem are all from Bontrager. Mr Rahim gave me Thomson Elite seatpost.

Once confirmed my purchase, Mr Rahim set the bike for me. He adjusted the seatpost height & position, then the pedal…..and finally the stem & handlebar.

I just did few rides with the bike & I am fully satisfied with it.

Just now I did 33KM road ride with fellow friends.

I also bought Bontrager RXL carbon cycling shoes & a new helmet. The cool thing about this new bike is the built in socket to insert bike sensor to measure speed & cadence. Since I already have Garmin Forrunner 405CX, the newly acquired bike sensor paired automatically & work perfectly!

I am not into bike technical that much & in fact I do not know most of the bicycle ‘anatomy’. I don’t really plan to upgrade anything as yet.

I am at the moment a very happy guy! ;)
