  • 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 […]

  • TCR Advanced SL ISP M-Sized With SRAM Red & Mavic K10

    The main batch of the TCR Advanced SL ISP special is arriving at the end of June. There are still some XS and S-sized models available. Not many, but a few. The M-sized bike sold this week. We’ve got an M-sized TCR Advanced SL ISP with the same components, including SRAM Red, and Mavic K10 […]

  • The Ultimate Weight Weenie

    Unlike my previous post, this build is a no holds bar try at making an ultra-light bike. Although there could be other options for the frameset, I’ve decided to build upon a Scott Addict R1 frame, which weighs 790g. While the AX Alpha could be used in such a build, it’s not yet available and […]

  • TD’s Giant TCR Advanced SL 1 ISP & Customer Testimonial With Asterisk*Cycles

    TD’s bike arrived a little more than a week ago and he finally sent me a few photos of the assembled and finished bike. As you know, we don’t fully assemble the bikes, we check that everything is accounted for and pre-assemble them. All that you have to do when you receive a bike from […]

  • Velocite Millennium & 135mm F/2 VC & Nikon D700

    My wife got herself a Nikon D700 and a 135mm F/2 VC lens on Monday. It’s a significant upgrade compared to my D200, because of the FX sensor, but I was mostly interested by the 135mm lens that she got. It’s a lens that enables you to control the focus and defocus, as Nikon puts […]

  • YL’s Giant TCR Advanced SL 1 ISP

  • 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 […]

  • 2010 Velocite Millennium

    I picked up my bike, the Velocite Millennium, on Thursday and saw it getting put together most of this week. I wasn’t satisfied with the Into Race ceramic BB, so I had it replaced with the SRAM Red one. The bike has got a titanium/red color scheme going. I couldn’t decide on which handlebar tape […]

  • Velocite Updates Its Site & My Millennium Build List

    Velocite has just updated and started its new website. It looks pretty darn good and I’m glad for Victor. I hadn’t much thought about the warranty on the Millennium frame that I’m about to get tomorrow, but I was pretty happy to find out that its got a lifetime warranty + 3 years on crashes. […]
