Downgrade 降級

家中的單車訓練台已設置兩年多,主角之一是帶領我踏入公路單車的 Giant TCR SLR1 及一對高性能 Fulcrum Racing Zero 輪組。把這對 Racing Zero 屈就在訓練台上,總是覺得有點可惜。 最近終於決定為 SLR1 來過 "降級"。 I have my indoor bike training platform for more than two years. The focus of the setup is the Giant TCR SLR1 that led me to the world of road cycling, and the set of high performance Fulcrum Racing Zero wheel-system. Frankly speaking, there should be much better use of the Racing Zero rather than leaving it as part of the indoor training setup. Recently, I have made up my mind to "Downgrade" my SLR1.

微笑單車 YouBike

微笑單車的初邂逅 First Encounter of YouBike

去過台北好幾次,但從來也未騎過微笑單車(YouBike)。主要原因是我沒有悠遊卡和台灣當地的電話號碼,無法作會員登記。另一方面,基於保安理由,我又不想使用信用卡作單次租車。 You may be surprised that I have not ridden any YouBike before despite that I have been to Taipei a number of times. The main reason is that I don't have Easycard nor local phone number. For security reason, I also don't want to use my credit card for one-time bike rental as well.

For our holiday rides in Kaohsiung, we have not bought along our road bikes. Instead, I have made and advanced booking with local Giant bike shop in Kaohsiung via their Facebook Fans page.
