Bikes – 2009

My beloved Mali MTB is renewing all the time.

Unfortunately, I needed to say goodbye to the sid fork (I have been its third owner, I guess), so it was replaced by a “new” (another second-hand) Fox fork. Although a bit heavier, but it was moving much more smoothly. I wish it had been blue, too… 😉

Besided, as I got acquainted with cyclocross, I needed a suitable bike. So the guys here (god bless them for their help!) built me one – based on the mountain bike. It looked funny, but I had no other option as we simply could niot buy a small CX frameset in Hungary…

Furthermore, I said goodbye to my Mali road bike as I had a great opportunity to buy a “cleverer” road bike at a really reasonable price. What is more, directly from József Major, our world famous Ironman. I was super proud of it. :-)

It got a tiny little alteration: the aero handlebar was too wide for me, and I was too weak for the crankset, but all the other parts remained.
