Mountain Bike Accessories: Floor Pump, Tube & Rack

Introducing the cheapest tube in town (i.e Putra Perdana, Puchong). This is definitely the best tube I've ever used for the past few years (apart from the higher priced Heng Shin, Kenda, Maxxis, whatever bla bla bla...). Not the lightest for sure but perhaps the heaviest. Who cares. I'm not racing.

This local made in Taiping tube only cost me RM7 (used to be RM6, RRP RM12 as printed at the back of its packaging). And hey! This 26x1.95 tube is high quality, produced under ISO 9001. I use the same size tube for both my 2.35 Nevegal & 2.1 Komodo tires. No Problem.



Who said Fox only produced Flux (Apparel & etc)? They also produce floor pump! Is it original? Err... see the sticker? Don't believe what it meter shows you (doesn't work accurately). It only works while pushing down the pump, so need to read carefully. This Fox is cheap at only RM40.



I had a problem storing my 2 bikes inside my house. I only have space for one bike. So the solution is to use this RM200+ double rack. It mounts from floor to ceiling & holds two bike firmly in its place. It's easy to adjust the height, a set of allen key will do the job.



There we go, 3 items that I currently use suitable for enthusiast mountain biker. I do believe that one don't need all expensive parts & gadgets to enjoy mountain biking. The heavier the bike, the fitter/stronger you will be. You are not fast/strong enough if you need to ride a lighter bike. Wrong? Oh... sorry! I'm not that strong either :).

Do you know that you can buy a 2nd hand SPD compatible mountain bike shoe for only RM75 in Nilai 3? You can always ask for cheaper price. Unfortunately, no size for me.
