Update: Facing new problems due to having a much uglier looking bike now.

Motorists are now much more hostile and outright bullying me off the road!

Seldom happened before so it wasn't really a problem before...Then I remembered that in Manila, rich and middle class motorists tend to be abusive (bullying) against anyone on the road that looks poor!

Fortunately, the effect on other cyclists looks the opposite and they seem even nicer to me now. Like I can be super aggressive on the road and they won't mind (let the poor boy in his rust bucket have his fun!). Before the uglify project, if I did that, the guys will feel challenged and try to race me (only people with a death wish does that in Manila!).
