Last week wasn`t too lucky for me. What happened?
I started my cycling home last Wednesday evening after 6 o`clock. I was riding my singlespeed Unit. The weather was really windy, I could ride easly with 38km/h with the backwind. Everything was fine, but after 2,5km when I got a green light and started to pedal really quick..... then I heard a strange noise came from my front fork. I looked down and realised, that my front wheel started to come under the bike, next second one more creak and I went straight with my head down the tarmac. I flow over my bike. I stood up in the next moment, because I realised the traffic was moving. I was worried that somebody could drive across me. First I checked my teeth - good, all was in place. After I checked my bike....I realised , my fork got broken half. I wondered how, because I didn`t hit anything. Everybody was shocked arround me. Nobody understood what did happen. Me either. One couple gave me first aid kit (Thanks!!!) because my head was bleeding. I got a lots of bruise and my chin got a big deep cut. I phoned James and he came to help me. He took me to the hospital when I got the aid....9 stiches, 3 inside and 6 normal. I think I am really lucky, because this story could have ended much worst.
I dont know what was wrong with my fork. I am not a heavy guy, I ride gently, never been chrased. May be some material fault. I did some research on the net but i didn`t find any similar case.
But the week wasn`t ended! After the incident a was back on the bike Saturday morning. I planned nice road ride in Richmond park. But somebody stabed my bike! When I started to climb up on Richmond hill, around half way I rode over something and my rear tire went flat. This wasn`t a plain puncture. Somebody dropped one knife on the road and I rode over it. The knife cut my tire and tube half. I had a nice 15 minutes walk into the shop......... I stayed home on Sunday..........

What`s happend after 6 weeks and 750km all conditions riding (NONONO... I have ridden much more during the last 6 weeks, 750km is completed with my Unit)?
Honestly? Nothing! There was no need taking care of my chain and chainlube, because Green Oil works brilliant. The lube is one of the best all conditions chain lube what I have ever used. I say it's all conditions, because if you use it in just dry conditions you can find it a little bit sticky (there is no dry conditions in England anyways...). The chain didn`t need to be relubed, didn`t get dirty or dry during the last 6 weeks. I think Green Oil is excellent stuff. I can reccomend for all cyclist whatever you ride on either off or on road or you are just a simple commuter, because you don`t only buy a great chainlube , you can also do something good for your environment.

I wanted to fit it on my Unit, but unfortunatelly I can`t. Because USE seatpost`s clamp can`t hold the thick titanium rail. Temporarily it is sitting in my cupboard, but I will find a nice place for it!
The saddle is really nicely made, the decals is perfect and covered with some special technology (the paintjob will not come off after the first ride). It`s weight is 199gr.

What`s happened in the last 2,5 mounths?
- I had a 10 day traningcamp in Italy, Pesaro. I rode: 8 days, 1050km and 11870m ascent. It was a big fun with Dini and VasP!
- 19. April, Nightrider 12 night race. It was a bad event for me. I had to give up the race after 4 hours, I had some bugg. I wasn’t well…. 1,5 weeks aspirin treatment came after it.
- 21. May. Beastway! It was my first single speed XC race! I love it! I finished on 4. I missed the second one because it was too close to my 12 hour race in Bristol. But I am looking forward for the coming one 18. June.
- 7. June, Bristol bike fest 12 hour race. Nice! Big names were on the entry list. I came on 6. I am really happy with it!

As Kona says:
"The Kona '88 celebrates Kona's 20 years of building rolling thunder. Sounds manly doesn't it? Actually...we just humbly build great bikes for educated customers all over the world. "Rolling Thunder" just sounded really tough at the time...The '88 needs no explanation... just look at it. We're done writing now."
