【Bike】客製化鈦合金旅行車(Customise Titanium Touring Bike) Part2–ongoing

【Bike】客製化鈦合金旅行車(Customise Titanium Touring Bike) Part2–ongoing

上週收到了Thomson 27.2mm x 250mm的坐桿以及star nut(在台灣俗稱梅花)之後,趁這個週末將單車走線、調整變速、碟煞。不過因為還缺少一個1cm的前叉墊片,現在車子還是不能上路。

Last week I received the Thomson 27.2mm x 250mm seatpost and star nut. I installed both of them as well as adjusted brake/shift during this weekend. It was almost done, however, I still cannot ride this bike, because I am waiting for the last missing piece: 1cm fork spacer.

因為這是旅行車,且本人有嚴重的背痛,這次的座艙設定與以前最大的不同在於坐墊與把手幾乎沒有高低差。我的Fuso鋼管公路車則有5cm的高低差(與以前的雲豹公路車相同)。650B的輪組與小車架搭配起來比較協調。

Because I have serious back pain, this touring bike has the different setting from my previous road bike. There is almost no handlebar drop. But my Fuso steel road bike has 5cm handlebar drop just like my previous road bike (So I rarely ride it…). The 650B wheelset with the small frame has better ratio than the 700c one.

【Bike】客製化鈦合金旅行車(Customise Titanium Touring Bike) Part1–Beginning

經過了漫長的九個月等待,終於拿到了我的客製化鈦合金旅行車車架。自從2014年去義大利騎單車旅行之後,我就越來越確定自己不會再參與比賽。我想要的是一台能陪我上山下海到處流浪的耐操旅行車,這樣的念頭催生了訂做鈦合金碟煞旅行車的目標。期間曾經survey過Independent Fabrication, Firefly, Hampsten, kualis,但是這些廠商訂做鈦合金旅行車架並不便宜,不包含S&S coupler就要US$3500起跳。這樣的價格我實在是花不下去,且還有其他事情要忙,因此訂做車架的事情也就一直擱著。

After the whole 9-month long waiting, I finally received my customised titanium touring bike frameset. Since I went toruing-cycling in Northern Italy with Bottle in 2014, I am very sure I won’t attend cycling race in the future anymore. I want a reliable and portable touring bike which can be with me around the world. Because of this idea, I want to customise my own titanium touring bike. I’ve surveyed some handmade bike factories e.g: Independent Fabrication, Firefly, Hampsten, and kualis. However, the customised titanium bikes made by these factories are really prohibitive. The price is usually up from USD$3,500, and it’s not including S&S coupler. I cannot afford this price, and meanwhile I was busy on other things, so this idea was pending.

SUNREE Headlamp Youdo2 山力士悅動2輕量化運動頭燈

SUNREE Headlamp Youdo2 山力士悅動2輕量化運動頭燈

早在2014前一次長途騎乘中將我的Alpkit Gamma電池盒其一卡榫*弄斷了 (忘了是怎麼弄),電池盒就無法關緊;只能用粗橡皮筋來綁緊。這樣也用了好一會,參加北海道1200km,帶去祕魯爬Inca Trail。不過覺得遲早有需要再買一個。經過幾番考量,就買這個山力士悅動2頭燈。

Veobike Knick Cover 彈性運動膝套 (騎乘防曬防風用)

Veobike Knick Cover 彈性運動膝套 (騎乘防曬防風用)

外出騎乘,雙腿不擦防曬油的話,通常騎回來後雙腿就變成煮熟龍蝦(曬紅)。另外解決辦法是穿自行車七分褲或是穿上膝套。

2012/03在來運買了Giordana膝套 (Knitted Dryarn Knee Warmers)還有七分褲。經歷三年多的折騰,都需要淘汰了。因為手邊自行車褲(短)不少,亟需新的防曬膝套來搭配。找了一會,總算找到合適又平價的膝套。26404947515_f63f61a4e7_o.png

Bryton Rider 310 心得 3 藍芽 & App

Bryton Rider 310 心得 3 藍芽 & App

Rider 310有支援藍芽,主要功能是將騎乘資料透過Bryton Sport App上傳,並同步到Bryton Sport網站。

我對這種跟智慧手機相連結的需求不大。每次騎完就是回到家了;那就拿機子接到筆電來上傳就好。但在我查看論壇上Rider 310的討論時,發現有不少車友很在意能不能趕快上傳 (尤其是分享到Strava)。

為了心得的完整性,我就來試試Rider 310的藍芽及手機App功能。結論是….

[Last Update: 2017/03/25
此篇使用的是舊版的App BrytonSport,新版的App是Bryton mobile app 2016。看看Google Play Store的評價,還有個人對該公司產品的軟體失去信心,我沒有興趣來安裝測試。 😛 ]

DIY Bike Box 自製單車箱 (出國用)

DIY Bike Box 自製單車箱 (出國用)

使用客製紙箱來打包公路車已經很多年了。訂製這5P(AB) (厚度7~8mm) 紙箱的費用不貴 (約400元,自取),但要廠商尺寸精準就不大容易 (每次都有公差 )。有時長寬高和會超過航空公司的規定 (203 cm*) 好幾公分。遇到一板一眼的日本航空公司地勤,可是會拿捲尺來量。有次在日本機場要回台灣時,我的紙箱長寬高和超過約4-5 cm左右吧,被放過;但超過更多的 Maggie & Stainley 就被收超大行李費用 (約一萬日幣出頭)。我雖被放過了,但不確定下次是否有這好運。因此,一直很想自己來自製單車箱 (託運自行車箱)。
