Default reason for your recent upgrade

since im a 300lb cyclist, i need a much more stronger wheelset than my stock 32h rims and hubs and taiwan made spokes. madalas kasi ako maputulan ng rayos.

so i decided to get me a new wheelset, a 36h alex rims xdlite, 36h vision 360 hubs, and 72 pieces of wheelsmith db14 silver colored spokes and brass nipples.

its been over two months now since i made this upgrade and i haven't had any broken spokes, yet. i think its time to abuse it now and see how it holds up to my weight. hehehe
(i mostly ride on paved roads, i intend to abuse my rig this weekend in CABA zone)

(update: feb. 7, 2011, hehe i've made four laps in the CABA zone trail and my spokes held up, no broken spokes whoopee )

what's your reason for your recent upgrade?

Mabigat fork ko..Rockshox Tora and walang lock out. Nakakabit yun sa built bike ko Giant Trance x4.I got a sweet deal yesterday from a fellow biker who had built an mtb 2 weeks ago and then decided to upgrade to 29er.Mabilisan, so i got everthing except for the frame.Straight deore groupset,xt hubs, epicon,wheelset ,rotors,new tires,new cockpit,saddle post,grips,pedals, etc.etc got it all for 22thou.
Reason for upgrade? I was given the opportunity to upgrade with huge savings so I grabbed it. gumaan ang bike ko

I hit the trail hard the last time i rode-damage my spokes & rim, so i have to upgrade/change my wheel sets. Im drooling on crankbrothers set pero-i'm thinkin how to repair it in case you needto, so i just bought a mavic ex823 -xx,000.00 -some price to pay. but it's worth the bucks, plus some added bling on the bike.

I upgraded from a vision quest bike to my dream giant anthem bike to put a halt on the strings of piece by piece upgrades....nakakasawa din upgrade ng upgrade kasi mas magastos. Its better to spend one big time, you'll spend less thats for sure...

my reason for recent upgrade is...
i want a comfortable ride sa trails..been using a HT for more than 2 yrs.(and enjoyed it everytime i ride it but..) this year i decided to go FS kasi nararamdaman ko na ang fatigue sa katawan after every ride sa trails(maybe it's the age factor,hehe)
but i forgot to consider this..kailangan ko rin pala i-upgrade ang tuhod ko and lungs kasi ambigat! hehe!

I'm planning to upgrade my brake from from mechanical to hydraulic. The last time na nagpunta kami sa Talisay nangalay talaga kamay ko, kaya nung di ko na makaya nag freewheel nlng ako kaya lang napakadelikado kasi may curb na daan and sa bilis baka hindi ako makapreno agad.

so, i just want to be comfortable during the ride.

last upgrade was shifter cables form stock to jagwire. pang brake daw kasi yung cables ko.

ngayon naman yung stock headset ko nagwiwigle na. sumisigaw na si bike ng hope headset...

upgraded my lo-rise hbar to flatbar, gusto ko lang ma-try kung mas gaganda ang handling ko using flat...most of my upgrades is due to replacement of broken parts, buti di ako nakagat ng upgrade bug dahil na din siguro sa limitado ang budget, so far na-attain ko yung gusto kong maging sa bike ko kakahintay ng tamang panahon. Matagal tagal nga lang...

Upgraded from a bakal FS frame + bakal 1" travel fork to an aluminum frame (S-works) and 100mm XCR. Super gaan compared sa luma, plus ang sarap ng feeling ng 100mm travel na fork!!!

-after an hour of compulsory braking with the road owners, the PUJ's, medyo may ngalay na akong nararamdaman. so i decided to upgrade my mech brakes to hydros. kasing lambot ng tubig, hehehe

- my lower back aches sa pagtyatyaga kong gamitin ang generic frame ko,
thus pushed me to buy a smaller frame, the pain is gone now. thanks to my therapeutic frame.
