How's everyone?

I'm back to riding after one of my knees hurt while running. I used to own a Trek FX 7.2 when I was in NJ and sold the bike when I returned to Malaysia. Bought a Java Folding bike, pretty decent bike but I prefer the look of a hybrid. Yesterday I got myself a Giant Escape 1 Disc and could not be happier. Best bike I have ever owned. Waxed the bike and took some photos, cant ride due to covid lockdown.. working on 10 posts requirement in order to post photos

Added rim decals and lowered the stem 2mm. Unfortunately, the bottom stem hole thread is stripped even when using a torque wrench.. lesson learned, never torque to the max spec as stated. Felt a little disappointed since the bike only has 30km on it and i have to replace the stem.

Hi friend. Horse riding is very good. I'm also thinking of doing this.
