    New Here - Hong Kong

    Yep, laugh it up - Hong Kong. I know I know, it's the kind of place that you hear joked about in tv shows, and see in Jacky Chan Movies and stuff. It ain't much for scenery or space... but damn, it's a deathtrap for biking... So I love it! (I'm English by the way)

    Nah, it's a great palce for biking, terrible on the roads, but once you get out onto the trails its amazing.

    Bike: Giant XTC SE2, MPH-3 Hydraulic Disk Brakes custom installed. It's a blue/silver frame. I custom upgraded all the gears etc. to Shimano XT, witha view to upgrading to XTR sooner or later. I changed the m505 pedals to mx30 because I hate cleats... I don't know why I just do... I don't like them.

    Anyway I guess that's about it. Hey guys!

    Yep... and that's the problem. No one to ride with. I mean don't get me wrong... I love the chinese, but in Hong Kong there just arn't many chinese XC riders. Bike riders yes, trail-trashers no.

    What are you doing in Hong Kong? Are you a long time resident? That's one place I've always wanted to visit. (I currently live in California - land of perpetual outdoor activity) I lived in England for a couple of years (30 years ago) and loved it.

    Anyway - welcome to the group. You'll find lots of good information and advice. . . and a fair amount of chuckles too.
    My judgment is impeccable, I married my wife. Her judgement, on the other hand, is highly suspect. . .

    Hi zeratul_182,

    I'm in HK, NT side to be more exact. Where abouts do you ride? Before getting your hopes too high, I'm a biker w/o a bike at the moment and apart from a couple of rides in Scotland with my mates I'm virtually a mountain bike newbie.
