My Bicycle Pictures (Click on thumbnails to see bigger picture in new window) :


This is my Kona Caldera 04. Those pictures with a red fork and deore cranksets (1st 7 pictures), they were in the initial stages of being built up. I slowly upgraded my bicycle part by part (As of May 1st, 3rd row). Of course, this bicycle is not finished; I'm looking to upgrade the wheelset to an Element XSM-1, new tyres and rubber, maybe a XTR Cassette and Chris King Headsets (maybe, if I'm rich). Oh, and the red pedals will be replaced soon too.


Some parts I recently upgraded to:


I chose to upgrade to XTR 02 components, simply because its cheaper and I prefer non-Rapidrise model (the newer M960). There was however difficulty in obtaining the XTR 02 components, reason being there was no more production of XTR 02 components! But I was lucky to get most of the drive train.

Bike components all bought and assembled at Seng Bee Bicycle Shop in Sims Drive.

Done some upgrades in the month of July! got a new wheelset and tires!

The wheelset I got, Element XSM-1 is a really worthy upgrade, spins easier and faster, and looks great too!
