Calvin | 1/2 of HKFixed.com bombed me with some photos of him in Japan. No details though just some photo caption. Will get him to update on this when I get him. Here’s his “kawaii” adventure in Japan. Bet he had a “yamate” good time.

The winner, Brian!!! (Founder of HKFixed)

Thanks, Bro. There might be more on HKFixed Official Site.

Note:
I had no idea what spokecards were and made a search. Taken from Cherokee Spokespeople :
“Spokecards are laminated cards that can be held in place by the spokes of a bicycle wheel, which bike messengers create as souvenirs for bike races and other messenger events.”

How it’s used. Cool idea of getting your message across huh.

HKFixed is having a Halloween Alleycat Race!


Got tipped off by Calvin of HKFixed.com that they will be organizing a Halloween Alleycat race on October 31st 2007. Damn, it sure makes my adrenaline goes up a little. In order to not miss out on this event, I had already asked Calvin to snap some pictures of the whole event. Bet you that it’s gonna be exciting. Racing through the walkways at night and having to reach 6 checkpoints and completing the task like finding a person and doing push ups. Or buying someone else beer. Loads more.
Go check out their official site to know more
.
Currently there are only 10 participants, so if you happen to be in Hong Kong or Macau why not join in. Hehe…

And last but not least, Calvin here’s a belated birthday shoutout. Happy Birthday bro!

HKFixed : Scans from MILK… supposedly

This is a follow up of my previous Hong Kong Fixed Gear Crew : HKFixed blog post.
After much bugging, Calvin Che from HKFixed.com finally sends me the much awaited scanned images. It seems that a popular Hong Kong lifestyle/fashion magazine MILK got them for an interview. I am unable to read chinese, only simple characters so you are on your own.

Click the for larger image.


Ok. If you are looking at the red shoes and wondering why would he be folding up one side of his jeans… it’s because he don’t want it to get stuck in the chainwheel and getting oil on it too. Right Cal?
Cheers HKFixed!

Hong Kong Fixed Gear Crew : HKFixed


I know how to ride a bicycle. I know how to brake. But I know nothing about fixed bikes. Calvin (in white), a buddy of mine co-founded the HKFixed outfit with founder Brian in Hong Kong and this is an excerpt from the site for the curious cats :

what is fixie?
fixie is short for “fixed gear,” meaning the rear wheel and the pedals are connected through a single gear anchored to the rear wheel. Unlike standard road bikes, there is no way to coast, there is only one gear and brakes are optional. Simply put, when the wheels are moving, the rider’s legs are moving. As with a child’s Big Wheel, if you want to stop, you have to use your leg muscles to slow the bike. Many riders, but not all, add a front brake, but the pure and brave of heart scoff at the notion. Oddly, when this configuration was first introduced in the late 19th century, it was known as a “safety bicycle,” since it replaced the “high wheel”


Calvin’s ride. Manisnya.

Thirst for more? Go check out their website which has links to their blog, product trade, bike gallery (though only 4 but am sure it will grow out of proportion soon) and other sweet info. There’s a cute fanny bag too, bet it’s expensive. And I see some way out messenger bags in their blog too. Yummy.

Go walk walk eat eat with Kyife

Popped over to kyife’s blog and he was raving about Mystyle. According to what he wrote its some voucher redemption thingy. He went to Ryu Men Tei and had loads to eat with pictures to brag about too. Those enticing graphic images no doubt managed to arouse my desire to feast shamelessly at 50%. Haha… So yes, curiosity got the better of me and I clicked to check it out. Well the site is not that fancy but that’s not my main concern. I want my food. Clicked all around and saw some merchants that interest me. KIV a few.

Since my gf happen to be loitering around KLCC on a Friday evening, I figured why don’t we go have some Nandos for dinner followed by New Zealand Natural for dessert. Stuff my face with food as its the weekend. I had the choice of a FREE One 1/4 chicken with rice at Nandos or FREE bottomless soft drink with any chicken meal order. No prize for guessing what I wanted. Wait a minute… since there are both of us, my gf will order another 1/4 chicken so could she redeem a FREE bottomless soft drink too? That would make 1 whole meal for FREE. Will try this out. (Bummer, checked out their Consumer FAQ and I am not allowed to do so. Guessed they figured me out.)
As for dessert, its a Buy 1 Free 1 thing. After reading the FAQ, I am having second thoughts… of whether to have an  ice cream. Mmm…

For your info, the MY111 code is to be used ONCE a year and it costs RM3.50, while the MY365 code could be used all year round with a charge of RM1.50.

Although the FAQ dampen my evil schemes but it still would be a great try. Will update soon.

Happy Toilet Project

Was surfing the net and super busy Shawna asked me to visit her blog. Her school, Fajar Secondary School had a Happy Toilet Project where students gave their toilet a complete make over. Different themes are given to each level. A very interesting and cool project indeed. Good job! Images stolen from her site.





Mmm… a bit hard for our toilets. Better forget it to save time and heartache.
