Re: Where to buy a Crossbow in Malaysia

You can quite easily DIY air guns. Common parts like plastic pipe barrels can do quite a bit of damage.

Re: Garmin - General Discussion - Part 5

My be a pain but I use a radiating antenna or external antenna (depends on which GPS I'm using). My early eTrex was quite fried by placing in on the dashboard. It still works but I know its components are subjected to heat stress and that will shorten its working life. The above solution also give m...

Re: Cycling Tour Around Malaysia [Query]

Cramps usually due to lack of training. Water / isotonic do help if the latter is not the issue. Yes plenty of water ... water. You can get the O't panniers from Singapore or Thailand. Both are about the same $$ so depends on where the wind blows. I dont think you will find that many second hand in ...

Re: Cycling Tour Around Malaysia [Query]

Ortlieb panniers is the only time tested an proven bags I know off. The rest of my buddies eventually gaveup thiers (not to peer pressure) but see with their own eyes their panniers falling apart after 2 - 4 tours. I have seen with my own eyes a 20 year old Ortlieb and still on a tour recently. Choi...

Re: Cycling Tour Around Malaysia [Query]

If you stay around Subang - Tai Pan (I think) has one bike shop that has one fitted 700C touring bike that is of resonable price.(<2k). You however need to junk the suspension. (I am in no association with any LBS in Malaysia ... ie I am now in the southern hemisphere). Saw it a couple of days ago b...

Re: Cycling Tour Around Malaysia [Query]

I have only one advice for selecting a bicycle for any adventure. Plan to succeed . I you are not too sure then the more likelyhood you will fail in your first attempt. i.e. it does not break your piggy bank in the process. BTW there are now close to touring MTB bicycles in Malaysia. This season MTB...

Re: Adaptor charger used for nuvi 200

Not too sure if this bitsy of info will be of any help. There are 2 types of min USB - wired internally. Co users face this problems though CO cannot be charged via USB port - it just put the Co into different mode of operation. I suspect the same rule applies here for Navi. There is a thread somewh...

Re: MOAGU - Mother of All GPS Utilities

Had a look. Looks interesting esp when you are keen in the topo mapping.

However it has not been known to run on Co yet :( . Will test it out anyway and feedback in a couple of days time... I am on the move again.

Re: Colorado users - Sign in here...

Not too sure what your requirements are for another GPS. My progression from eTrex to Co was strictly to bypass the CSx to newer technology. The risk and shortcomings of using Co is well discussed all over and Co owners like myself are still waiting for the new firmware updates. Leaving the looks as...
