It is important to know some name of bicycle parts in case I have to explain what the problem I have.

Over 38,000 km (23,750 mi), I’ve changed most of part except the frame, handle bar, levers,front deraileur, seatpost clamp, stem, and headset.

I have too often broken spoke on the rear wheel. I can say I got more broken spokes on the rear wheel than flat tire. The reason is I carry too many things on the rear. Another problem I have faced often is with derailleur. Quite often it is out of tuning and to me it is so difficult to adjust.

Schwalbe tire is the best part of my bicycle I like. My frame is Surly which is really stronger and heavier, so I like it.

I will talk about my bicycle’s part when I have the time one day.

  • Very nice picture of a bicycle, Jin. Colnago, …. beautiful frames, expensive, great Italian name.

    I’m not surprised that you break spokes in your rear wheel. :)) I see that you are turning left, as you go south. This means that you won’t be visiting the UK, England, Wales, Ireland, Scotland? What a shame. ;)

    Haven’t seen an update from you for some time. I guess that one is coming soon.

    Take care………

    • Hello Russell,
      It is okay that I think I would have chance to visit the U.K in the future :)
      Thanks!!!

  • Dear Jin,

    I have followed your journey since the very beginning on CGOAB. Your journey has been incredible, and thank you so much for sharing it. I am an old man, so I really enjoy reading the journals, as this is how I travel now. I have very much missed you on CGOAB, and I hope that someday you will return.

    Have safe travels and the wind at your back. Robert Gubler

    • Dear Robert,
      Thank you for following me for a long long long time since San Francisco.
      I hope the trip goes well to the end after two years!
      Cheers,
      Jin
