Road rash injury - broken Fi'zi:k ARIONE CX carbon braided

Saya telah membeli saddle Fi'zi:k ARIONE CX - carbon braided pada Ogos 2010 (Hari Raya special offer). Tujuan asalnya ialah untuk diguna pada roadbike. Bila road bike yang saya beli telah tersedia dengan Fi'zi:k ARIONE Kium berwarna putih matching dengan bartape putih, saya lekatkan carbon braided ini pada Kona Cidercone MTB.
Tersangat ringan dan saya sangat suka bila berkayuh off-road atau on road..Tiada masaalah berkayuh di Ladang Sawit dan di Ladang Getah. Pernah terjatuh pada bulan March 2012 - MTB Jamboree Krau 1. Walaupn luka tapi Fizik Carbon tak terjejas.
Semasa berkayuh di Ladang Sawit Bukit Koman minggu lepas, saya terlangar batu di satu selekoh. Menggunakn pedal clip (CrankBrothers Candy X Pedals), saya tak sempat unclip lalu jatuh slow motion. Lutut dan betis kiri luka (superficial abrasion). Saya teruskan kayhan, tetapi terasa kelainan pada saddle. Setelah diperikasa didapati carbon braided rail telah patah.
Prologo X10 Nago Evo ProTi 1.4 - menggantikan saddle yang patah.
Rock and roll

Mountain Biking during Ramadhan

Although my road bike is already frozen in the freezer, my mountain bike is still hot and moving about.
Fasting month is not about sleeping and doing nothing.
I went to Raub Mining Palm Oil Estate yesterday. Moderate 40minutes spins at the undulating estate road that border the Raub Australian Gold Mining (RAGM). Famous for using cyanide to extract gold.
Meet one Chinese guy  Ah Pek attending to his 40 cows, and I asked  him to take the picture -  here pic of the cows at the background .
Road to the right brings you to Raub Oil Mill, and the left to Raub Golf Course.
