If The Bike Fits | Bike Fit By Arland Macasieb

“But if we tilt the handlebar upward that won’t be aero!” I said to Arland as he was “mutilating” my very aero looking CEEPO Katana. Then he dropped the bomb, “let’s talk aero when you can average at least 40kph”. Alright, that shut me up.
The goal of any bike fitting session is to achieve the best balance between comfort and speed.


Throwback Training Thursday | Who I Was a Couple of Years Ago

Since its Thursday and everyone’s posting #TBT pictures, I’ll do something different. See before SBR.ph started, I was just like any other athlete. Raring to train and join every race possible. I’m still pretty much like that today, with the difference being that I’m now on the other side of racing now (covering it).
