BICYCLE NOISE - CLICK AND CLUNK

Ever wonder how does this noise come from your bicycle and make you crack. I have experienced the click sound right when climbing and trouble shooting is still in progress to get rid it off from my routine ride.

The video attached is the most serious sound I ever heard and it happened to one of our friends. Only recently four units of the same brand experiencing this noise, one is case closed when we rule out hub is the problem. He sent his bicycle to local bike shop in Serdang to have his hub serviced. While myself and another two is still looking where the noise come. We have to isolate the noise by replacing parts (borrow it from your friends if you don’t have one) that we think possibly contribute the noise. The first parts will do is BB, then chain and so on, the least we will check is the hub until the noise goes away. During the troubleshooting or finding the noise, you will be surprised the noise is actually can be transferred from its original location to other parts of your bicycle. Wish me luck eliminating the click.

KAYUHAN BUKIT MAKATIONG-TAIPING 2012

Melalui kenalan Sdr Azwan Afiffin dalam fb, penulis dapat merasai kayuhan Bkt Makationg pada Sabtu, 4hb Feb. Masih terasa macamana perit menolak semasa Kayuhan Warisan Taiping 2009 dahulu di trek yang sama ketika mendaki ke puncak sebelum CP1. Seramai lebih kurang 15 pengayuh menyertai kayuhan kali ini, sepatutnya lebih tetapi pembatalan di saat akhir oleh kenalan MTB yang lain. Majoriti kenalan MTB yang berkayuh adalah staff perkhidmatan Penjara Taiping. Tayar bergolek tepat 830pagi dari tapak parkir Penjara Taiping ke tapak Bkt Makationg.

Selesai kayuhan lebih kurang jam 11am penulis turut menyertai sesi ”carbo loading” di kaki bukit larut dengan hidangan wajib nasi lemak atau ‘roti jantan’ sebelum menghabiskan kayuhan ke destinasi akhir masing-masing. Walaupun baru berjumpa dengan kumpulan MTB Taiping tetapi rasa serasi bersama untuk melakukan aktiviti yang sihat ini.

tak larat kayuh tolak ler yop..penulis pun sama nasib
