(Biyaheng Timog) One Gear, Laguna Loop Ride; A ride to the South and back. Rekta Silangan together with WeFXD and Siyete Lagos.
The Laguna Loop is a 180 to 200+ km bike ride from the East, West or North of Manila, Philippines to the provinces of Rizal and Laguna and back. This fixed gear bike ride has a total ascent of 849.62m. and has a maximum elevation of 339.75m.
Finally finished (sort of) the Asong Asero project. Ave took his time in building this frame set but it's worth every minute of the wait.
As most of you know already, the geometry of this bike was inspired by the ASKAL. For the unfamiliar, askal is slang for asong kalye which means street dog or stray dog. And indeed it is snappy, agile and always ready to pounce. Just like a real askal.
Even on temporary set-up and raw finish, it never fails to slap a smile on my face whenever i ride this iron dog. I suspect the cantilevered one-off-made-to-measure track ends and the off-set seattube/BB/downtube junction -which results to a slammed rear wheel, are the reason for the very responsive "feel" of the ride. Plus the 77º HTA with the 20mm fork rake.

A sad day for his family, friends and the fixed gear community. Bam Morillo is one of the nicest person anybody can meet. An unfortunate bus accident going up the Mountain Province took him away from us. You will be missed, brother.
