  • Velocite Millennium & Nikon 135mm F/2 Defocus Lens

    The 135mm F/2 Defocus lens is a hard animal to tame. It does take great pictures, but focus is a struggle. I’ve found that it’s best to operate this lens manually, as the autofocus is slow and unprecise. However, it does lead some great photos, like this one of my compact SRAM Red crank.

  • 25 KM Dusk Ride

    I was extremely busy this week. It was the last week of classes and while they ended this week, it was time to setup my summer. I never really take any time off from teaching. I’ll be teaching the whole summer, which is good. I had been wanting to go out for a ride for […]

  • The Afterlife of the Stieg Larsson Books

    A great long form article about the Stieg Larsson Millennium books. The books were released a while ago in French, so I read them all.

  • 25 KM Night Bike Ride

    With the rainy weather over Chinese New Year, that just started when the build of my Velocite Millennium Elite SRAM Red bike was completed, I stayed indoors most of the week. I regretted not purchasing a trainer. The rain finally let up yesterday and I decided to go out on a ride tonight. It felt […]

  • Velocite Price List

    Velocite Bikes has just released their updated price list. Now that they offer SRAM, I’ll deck out my Magnus with Red. It will be followed by a Millennium shortly after.

  • 50 KM Night Bike Ride

    I wanted to go out on a bike ride yesterday, but was busy with work. So today, after coming home, I went out on a ride. It was about 5:30PM. I came back at around 7PM. It felt really good. I was a bit slower than a few weeks ago, but it was still a […]
