Traction zero seat post to remove setback and move my seat forward because my legs are way back in relation to the pedals.

Started bike commuting so I got SKS mudguards, xblade for the rear and a mud-x dirtboard upfront. DIY shock mudguard to take care of the upward spray in the front.

Chosen hubs because I managed to kill my old ones.

From Santour XRC Fork to Epicon 2013 Fork. Masyado kasi mabigat ang xcr compare sa Epicon. mas magaan na ngayun gamitin mtb ko.

cockpit upgrade:

-changed my stock grips to ergon gs2-s - mag gusto ko yung may wrist support at bar ends
-changed my stock low rise handlebar 680mm to truvativ t20 600mm flatbar - too wide para sa akin yung stock and para mas bagay yung bar ends.
-changed my stock 90mm stem to truvativ t20 75mm - medyo nahahabaan din ako sa 90mm so try naman ng shorter stem.
-changed my velo 8 to micro wireless - less wire clutter, constant display ng time kasi wala ako relo, backlight, and naiinput uli yung odo reading. these are features i like.

My recent upgrade were my exteriors and pedals. Ang laki kasi ng punit nung stock exteriors nung Vision 1.5 ko. Sira na rin yung stock pedals.

Eto naman medyo OT pero eto ang mga plans ko for my next upgrade:

- Higher quality sealed BB
- Better disc brake system (Still thinking to switch to hydros or find a mechanical system that functions almost like hydros)
- Mudguards/fenders (Grabe kasi ang tilamsik ng dumi kahit concrete road ang dinadaanan ko to work)

Plans pa lang yan kasi wala pang cash na pang-upgrade.

reason for recent upgrade?
- nagkaroon ng extra money
- curious about shimano wheelset (mt65) (before customized japeyks na mavic 223 rims, deore hubs, generic spokes), gusto ko rin try mag tubeless
- hirap maghanap ng 9speed xt cogs, kung meron ang mahal (kaya bumili ng 10speed xt groupset at matagal na ako naglalaway dito), moved old components to my brothers 29er dahil ayoko ng x4 sa 29er nya
- wanted to switch to fullsus
- changed my cyclocomp from vectra wireless to cateye commuter (dahil sa backlight at temperature feature)

nabiyak kasi axle ng luma at kalawanging pedals ng luma at kalawanging 10-speed ko
pilit kasing tinatalon sa mga gaps, ayun naglakad tuloy pauwi...

eh since matagal ko nang pinagiisipan magclipless, clipless na inilagay ko
training na rin muna, pang-road bike ko muna siya, pag sanay na tska ko lagyan yung mtb xD (sana lang masanay hihi)

Change my frame from 2010 KHS Alite 2000 to 2013 Giant XTC. Just to try a different geometry since size 15 yung KHS at size 16 naman yung XTC, iba daw kasi talaga ang geometry ng XTC. So far, mukha ngang okay. Recently replaced my low rise to flat bar, eto di ko pa subok kung talagang okay. Pero, talagang naiba ang posture ko sa bike. Sana lang di manibago at sumakit ang wrist or back para di sayang ang bili ko.

Sold my Merida bike then bought a Trek 8500 frame and started a new
Project.

Reason: wrong size of bike. Sumasakit katawan ko. Hehe

safety reasons. upgraded or changed my Avid Juicy 3 to a non-series shimano hydro breakset. went down the wall with the Avid a month ago, didnt feel that i was getting enough stopping power from it. after a week pinalitan ko na, better safe than injured.

Preferred comfort over lightweight. From Merida Big Nine XT frame (less than 1 month) to On One Inbred (cant afford lurcher).
