Head Honcho's - Rebel Yell & Rebel Gal

Rebel Yell (White) & Rebel Gal (Red)
These two are Head Honcho latest downhill bike and AM hardtail. Thanks to all ROAMers for their contribution in parts and components. This story is all about the newly assembled Rebel Yell. It took me just 1 week to get accustomed to bike behavior. The handling is super nice. The flat bars up front improved my cornering plus keeping it low in the front. Weight is 19.5kg due to some heavy duty parts. Some of the parts as you will view it later at the bottom, its all aged and outdated. But if its still do the job accordingly, don't change it. (Old saying, if it ain't broken, don't fix it).

The 2007 Boxxer World Cup does it job perfectly, i'm coming from an old 2005 Boxxer Race (Klang River Boxxer-my fellow ROAMers called it-hehehehe). The rear travel felt bottomless during big drops and gnarly spot. Long wheelbase improved traction and stability during rough spot action and in high speed condition. The long top tube give more space and tight cockpit is not my cup of tea.

I called this bike Mario (super mario bros) as it needs to pop in rough section. For me, its not build to be a Pacman. But popping around is fun, lets you know that you are having fun.

Slight change of plan - my Supreme Racing

After a year riding it, eventually I feel something is funny about the bike and not as good anymore.. And honestly I hated the color.. so I decided to check the linkage and all bearings, mm and to get rid of the color too.

this bike has been ridden more than 100 runs in mud... logically its dying, something needs to be done.

Main pivot bearings are practically dead, cannot be moved by fingers at all. Linkage bearings are usable but need replacement too. BB's are rough and will be replaced last (the whole BB, probably HOPE). Headset is okay, just topped up the grease and filled the dirty bearing balls.

So, no riding on this bike for the next 2 weeks.. these bearings and some parts need replacement, the best solution is the machining shop.

Guys, I'll be joining any riding activities on my hardtail just for the sake of riding.. Owh yea supreme racing might have a new fork and rims - after the pain remover job, raw

OZ Race report - ELDE

I was over whelmed off seeing the track for the first time. My first reaction was WOW!

Walked the track few times, then got riding with a couple (a lot hehehe ) of run just to get the feel for the track. Afternoon came around saw few riders getting in to it, I was nervous just looking and studying their lines. Their gates were fast. When it got to

practice with other riders I was nervous/excited coz I wanted to see where I stand in fitness/performance wise.

2nd day until qualifying day was like morning session and afternoon session. Practice summary:- I cleared most of the basic jumps. The more technical jumps I had to get some guidance from local riders.

Jumping to Qualifying day (Friday 14th May) 9am...I was 6th person to go according to race numbers. Over all my run was ok. Didn’t expert a fast time, but I qualified 15th out of 20 riders (that advance to racing) with the time of 59.8sec.

Race day…I was in moto no.3 to start, managed to do 3heats then I got knocked. Racing was full of pushing and shoving but. In the end I ended in 10th B mens.

Saturday evening was Dual Slalom, with a simple track with was fun…u just had to pedal every you could. Got 7th in B Mens. - ELDE
