Yo, i am one of "no longer cycling" geng that wanted to restart cycling again.

Used to cycle when during the time Dura-ace just release 11 Speed and Sram Red was still 10 speed and Campag just released SR 11 EPS

I need to start from zero again (as in my skills all long gone) and wanted to look for basic but racy type alu bike. Is there such product exits in Malaysia?

Was looking at TCR Aluminium/Spec Allez Elite/or other brand that are within the price range.

Just need one to cycle around to get back to cycling my cycling skills to prevent shitty silly accident clips stacks for example before revert back to my previous bikes

If my budget around 4/5k is it possible to get a decent bike? I still have shoes and clothing around so there are no extra cost from those.

Things have changes over the years and the last check around that cycling is big thing in Malaysia and there are shortages around.

The only thing that comes to my mind for racy alu frames will be either CAAD or Allez Sprint(though this is more to aero).
*
Oh yes forgotten about the caad.

How the availability in Malaysia since many people and shop will suggest carbon bikes

done it once, the cobbler drills holes around the carbon sole then use big sewing needle and thread. but take note it makes this shoe volume smaller. stopped wearing the shoe cos it became abit tighter haha.

Did you give to normal cobbler or those specialized cobbler in malls?

I had diy repaired mine using ShoeGoo, u can get it from shopee or those skateboarders shop. For sole you need to clean the surface with some alcohol before applying the stuff. Then clamp it overnight with a C clamp.

Very versatile stuff, can be used on any part of the shoe.. youtube it

Just curious did anyone when to this particular person for bikefit?
CODE
https://bicyclebuysell.com/user/masterwong


Any feedback on him? Since he is the only one that have plenty of feedback on him.

Seen many bike fitter around in KL area. Not sure which one is legit and which one is not as some are so called certified Retul specialist.

Did asked one of the bike shop for retul move bike fitting like prior buying bike but they seems keep asking me to buy a bike first then talk about it.

I've heard on Master Wong from various ppl... his setup I was told is more to comfort.

I did mine at Lil Rock Bike Fit as most of my mates gone/recommended this place plus he did a great job for my bike. This is my opinion so far.
*
Checked on his fb page seems legit too thumbup.gif

It seems like he is more into bike fitting with your existing bike then doing pre bike fit purchase. Will whatapp him about it.

He has one of those retul or retul-looking bikes there at his studio though I've never seen it in action.

Good to hear that. Since a quick look his FB page did not show really that machine around.

QUOTE(radmaszeal @ Mar 15 2021, 09:24 AM)
retul can do bike selection before buying bike. cyclelogy bangsar or vo2max sdn bhd has the option since retul updates their bike sizing database regularly. friend made a shortlist of 3 bikes, went to vo2max for fit, then vo2max checked bike geometries for the 3 bikes to recommend what size needed, whether stem/seatmast need changing or not.
*
I actually checked with the bangsar shop for such fit service ( but they keep asking me what type bike i am looking for.) instead of letting me how much does it cost to do such fit as I intend to do the fit first then talk about the bike later. Afterall they are a bike shop right and their main job is to sell the bikes.

isnt vo2max near or beside gofondo there. Some of cyclist friend have some good feedback on them too

vo2max is somewhere at bukit jalil, went to them twice for 2 of my bikes before they shifted there, previously located at ttdi above cycle studios. bangsar I think cos the fitter isnt full time there, he only comes if when there is fitting appointment, u contact the other guys they will try to sell bike haha. if you can reach the fitter directly can ask him if he can do. Johan Mokhtar is his name.
*
Ah saw his name in certified retul fitter on Retul page. Yes, i did contact the shop and not him directly and they keep telling me what bike i am keen with and no mention of retul pre-bike fitting shocking.gif

I think in the end he have to use the system at the shop unless he have its own setup elsewhere outside the bangsar shop.

I think last time i hear this particular fitter that was above cycle studio (at that time i thought he work under cycle studio) but then i did not ask further question cos by then I stopped cycling.

Sometime the clip to close to your eye it can smear your clip on lens easily sweat.gif but still cheaper than buying full blown prescription impactrx that cost rm3k and above (its worth if your script is on high side, mine is quite low so better off doing the clip.

Rudy project easily beats oakley. Happy Rydon and Intuition user thumbup.gif

yeah, these are some of the annoyances to deal with. Need to adjust the nose piece to maintain that distance between your eyes and the inside lens.

Other annoying thing is when fogging occurs. difficult to wipe without removing the inside lens clip-on.
*
Yes and my clip actually broke off when cleaning it (i took off the lens but leave the clip on for washing).

Anyway it broke off cos being used for 7 years on daily basis as daily sunglasses.

Now i swap to rx prescription clip that allow direct sunglasses lens made by optometrist to be used as daily glasses. For cycling use i will used back the clip and Rudy original lens for safety purpose.

I not sure if the rx clip with third party lens will be able to withstand bike crash.


QUOTE(ijan @ Mar 21 2021, 11:10 AM)
kenapa beat oakley boss?
*
Better build and quality. Able to fit the Rudy to your face cos adjustable temple and bridge to fit your head/face profile while oakley is fixed. Good for you if Oakley able to fit your face on the first try.

Spare parts are still buyable for rudy project (just had rubber tips changed due to being broken after 7 years) while very hard for oakley especially if the model discontinued.

Sure Rudy stuff are boring refering to Rydon which i have (now they do have better design models like oakley) but certain model like rydon being in rudy catalog for long time does say how good is it.

Yeah, my clip broke after about that same number of years too. Got a replacement one last year. I used to swap between dark and clear lenses for night/day time cycling, but now just use a single pair of clear photochromic lenses, which is good enough for my needs.

Rydon's one of the more lasting designs. I've been using Magster all this time, and they've already discontinued it, even the Magster 2 that came after. But on the good side, the same clip can be used for a few models including the Rydon too. So there's no need for me to get new clips + prescription lenses when I finally get a new pair.
*
This is why i like rudy other than the part the clip will smear then rx clip lens.

I've given up on Oakleys long time ago. The lenses peel off very easily.  mad.gif  bangwall.gif
I'm wearing NOS Rudy Project Ryzer and Traylyx.  cool2.gif
I have some NOS BBB which are also nice to wear.

My rydon laser red lens edge was starting to peel a bit but this is after so long of wearing it which I think it is good stuff.

Oakley dont really cater for folks with the need for prescription lens unlike RP which had proper clip on lens (tried Shimano lens prior and the attachment is so flimsy)

I do remember oakley direct prescriptions lens from the factory also cost on par with what Rudy is offering too.

How does this compare to riding a bike attached to turbo trainer and training via apps/video?

Same applies as well?

Where to view Rudy shades nowadays?

I did mind in the glasses shop near the escalator in ground floor of Amcorp Mall. I think the shop name is called Tanjong Optical.

Previously i bought it online (based overseas prior) but the clip insert i went to my usual optical to make it. That time rudy is not tat big in Malaysia yet.

I assume in this woman's case, she already admitted she had not exercised for a long time. Then suddenly joined this spinning class and overexerted herself.  rclxub.gif
Furthermore, she also advised everyone to always hydrate after exercising and when she was in the hospital, she was administered intravenous hydration therapy and was encouraged to drink a lot of water during the stay. Meaning she didn't take in enough fluids too.  cheers.gif
If you're doing your Zwift, you can stop anytime.  cool2.gif

Mine is even not zwift, its old skool turbo trainer with video training on with adjustable resistance.

I do try to follow as closely but something i just go one step down the what video suggested (eg candence of 90 instead of 100)

When i first started using it i only do 30 min as i felt my body is done for the day then gradually increase to 1 hours which video duration generally was.

I would choose uno for price/weight best value. carbon wrapped aluminium is usually heavier than plain alu stems, my old bike came with carbon wrapped alu, heavy lol. changed to fizik r:1 alu stem with titanium bolts, much lighter.
what's your budget? goodyear eagle around rm160, read reviews seems like decent value for the price. i've used pirelli p zero, after discount rm180. bought michelin power competition from wiggle/probikekit when on sale around gbp30 about rm150, those 2 sites offer free shipping when purchase value reaches a certain amount. havent tried anything newer than those 2 though.

How does the Wiggle/PBK free shipping was to Malaysia? Took long time and did you got hit by import taxes?

I did use them previously in another country which is good deal compared to the local LBS as long one willing to wait for free shipping (took like under one month to reach me) not sure about Malaysia since they kind of like make second tier country as compare to Thailand or Singapore.

If you want speed.....conti gp5000..tried and tested. The other one I quite like is maxxis high road...very rubbery feel.

If puncture protection vittoria control.
These are tires I use so based on my experience....if want to tembak...gp5000s for sure

Previously using GP4Ks ii when GP5k is not existed. But now using Pirelli P zero Velo due to the classic colour devil.gif paid for it like rm200 as i buy from physical store and ask them to install for me
