The Bicycle....

I was at Ampang Point to pay my bills. After got it done I went to have a walk around the shopping area just to while my time. Eventually stop at the Cash Converter shop, a store that I love to browse along and at time do buy things that I like. On that morning I did not have any intention of buying anything but to just enjoy my time there. At time I would get to meet friends but on that today did not see anyone there.  I just browse around and had a look at the second-hand camera and lens that are on display in the lock compartment. I got the assistance of a salesperson and had a look at a few set of cameras and its lens but did not find anything that I like. I then move on and got a glimpse of a bicycle, a nice looking one. I look at the price and it shows just RM199.00. It to me looks real cheap. For that kind of money the bicycle is indeed a good buy.  I went to have a closer look and felt for it.  I ask the shop-assistance for help and he was ever willing to help. He quip that it a good one and that it just came in yesterday. Without much thought I decided to buy it. It was a just an impulse decision that made me buy that bicycle. A wise man once say that it always the items that wait for its owner. In this case I am its rightful owner.

After paying for it I walk out with the bicycle. There was not enough air in both tyres. I thought it all right, I would just walk and push it along to my car that I had park a distance away. Got the bicycle into the car and drove home happy. Now I do have another toy to play around.

 Have a nice day.

Pak Idrus,
From the look of it, it is a down hill bicycle often used in downhill runs where they will ride from a high point downward. Only experts can do it. I once bought a similar type but passed it on to my son in law hoping that he will ride it for that purpose that the bike is built for.
Anyway your Ampang area being undulating will be good enough to use that bike as the many gears will allow you to negotiate the undulating terrain effortlessly. Have a good time with your bike.

Pak Zawi, thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on the subject of this posting.

Actually I did not have any idea of what the bicycle has evolved up to now. I only know that it a bicycle that I could just ride. It was just on impulse that I bought that bicycle and after using it for a few days agree with you that it is indeed a downhill bike. Thanks for the information.

Have a nice day.

You beat me to that bicycle! Was planning to get one since January, but kept delaying it. Now I must walk past Cash Converters every few days to see if there is another one for sale. Don't want to buy a brand new one as I just want to cycle around my taman for exercise. YOu got a good bargain. If you ever think of reselling, you know who to contact :-)

Well I did not even have the intention of buying a bicycle that day but that Bicycle and the price hooked me. I just bought it without even thinking much. I am glad that I bought that bicycle. Am enjoying it now.

Have a nice day and take care.
