My New Echo Pure Trial Bike

Last night, Hor Fun, Peng and Spencer, all trial riders from Singapore, paid a visit to me before heading into KL. They would be leaving for Singapore after paying a visit to KLCC. They stopped by my place in Bandar Bukit Mahkota and we had supper. Mostly we talked about the trial biking communities, techniques and bike tuning.

They shared their experiences, tips and tricks on how I can better maintain my bikes, and how to improve my basic skills.

They helped me diagnosed a problem I had with the crank. Turns out that the pedals were not tightened properly.

Anyway, here are some pictures of my new bike.

This afternoon, I managed to tightened the pedal with a brand new pair of size 15 spanner. Right after that, I decided to test out the pedals to ensure that there were no more irritating knocking sound coming from it.

With my slippers on, I tried to hop on the rear wheel and slipped. The following are the graphic results of my poor judgment and lack of common sense! Now I will not be able to wear my shoes and thus have wait for the injury to heal before I can start full training again. What a drag!

I just hope that my Wolverine-type quick healing factor will get me over this in a couple of days... LOL.
