azamunekurone thanks for your tyres and carbon rims advice. Carbon rims I won't tukar at the moment , I will continue using my stock alloy ones. Teringat MCO & CMCO, ekonomi pun tak stabil lagi, lebih baik jimat sikit.

Justin.Loong drilzs from Le tour de Langkawi this year. Bikes used for the competition. Had the chance to view them up close.

Finally got a 20" K-12 foldie to add to my previous 16" one

This one has so much improvement over the FA-20 (16") in term of frame stiffness

oh, btw, i replaced stock saddle with selle italia gel, and changed back after 1 hour. damn, old age has caught up with me and cause many butt hurts

just realized it's hard to find knobby tires for the 20". the stock Maxxis (CST) tyres are too slippery for light offroad or sand or even just wet road. any suggestions? dont give me expensive tyres. my serious mtb days are over.

never say enough. my first foldie was mainly because i want portability, so i chose the smalled wheel diameter

but after 1 yr using it, the frame flexes badly (coming from a mountain goat climber setup bike - u know, ultra stiff everything), so the new one is a nice upgrade
