---Welcome to the USA. Please tell us about the bicycling scene in Malaysia and your impressions of the bicycling scene here. What is your opinion of the accomodations made for cyclists (bike lanes, cycling paths etc.) and what has been your experience with the bike shops here in terms of their service and product selection as compared to your home country?

cycling in malaysia is always nice. Except that the weather is very hot most of the time. I have not been to USA before and im not quite sure of how is the situation riding at there. At least the weather at there is much more comfortable than here . The cycling accomodation here in Malaysia is pretty sucks. No bike lanes..or etc for us. And it is quite dangerous to ride here. Of course the cycling gears/equipment is way better than malaysia. Here, most of the bike shop sell more general stuff here and hardly find those custom-made bicycles here. Most of the people here thought Shimano is the only groupset availabe in the market and the most popular one. They never heard of Campagnolo or any other foreign brands. It's pretty sad in malaysia anyway. :/
