I was looking for an affordable upgrade for my tri-bike since my last investment on a Hed Jet 6 plus last year. Having heard positive reviews from my friends who used the various UCB speedcages from Bikes and Bites, I finally took the plunge and purchased the UCB Nanotec.
At an extremely affordable price, the most visible improvement it made to my ride while pedaling at roughly the same effort as before was:
• Added about 2 to 3 gears while riding down-slope;
• Depending on the terrain, gained a gear or two while climbing up-slope; and
• Able to sustain my top-end speed on flats for a longer duration (most likely due to the less effort required)
Considering the price and short of making heavy investment such as aero-wheels or lighter frames, I would definitely recommend this piece of upgrade to anyone who is looking at a quick and instant upgrade to their performance.
Me and my friend, Audrey were trying to decide which brand should we buy for our first Tri bike, therefore we google around and went for a few shops before James (our sports buddy) introduced us to this shop called “Bikes n Bites”. He told us that the prices are very reasonable, therefore we went ahead to take a look at the bikes there. Intially me and Audrey didnt expect to get the bike immediately as we need to fish around in the market. When we first saw Cervelo P3, both of us fell in love with the bikes and told ourselves that this is the bike that we want. Alicia was very helpful and explained to us the differences between the mechanical and Di2 for P3.
Zullo – My Story
I was torn between purchasing these two steel frames, when I remembered the advice from Paul, that “Zullo is getting older and may likely stop building custom made Zullo frames”. I wanted this frame to be special, as a remembrance of God’s faithfulness in completing my 3 years of studies. However, I was uncertain, because, in 2003, I had lost confidence in bikeshops that can deliver on what they promised. My custom frame was mistakenly sized 59, and was too big for me. However, on 19th May 17, I took the leap of faith to custom fit a steel frame (Zullo) to celebrate God’s faithfulness in journeying with me during my 3 years of studies.
