  1. I'm coming to Chumpon end of Feb with my MTB, any suggestions of places to ride singletrack or quiet dirt or paved roads?

  3. Wing 41 Sticker - Addendum

    Last year they had a copy machine and for a small fee they would make nec doc for you. This year they said "maybe near CMU" when I asked (luckily I carry a few copies of often asked for docs in my glovebox)
  4. Where to Replace MacBook Pro Battery in Chiang Mai

    I get my Mac work done also on 3 rd fl Pantip, placed called 911 or something like that. They have always respected their work guarantee and been punctual with their work.

    Looks like they are building another bridge right next to the new one now
  7. Where can I buy fireworks in cm?

    Lady in Warrot market, hidden behind dry fruit sellers. A real big selection, esp for bigger stuff, is in a few of the temple shops after the Chinese gate going north. One on the left has a big back room full and might even bring the huge ones in for you as they do for me. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    If you go into the first parking lot at the bottom of the HTT access road there is a paved loop for runners and cyclists. At the top corner there is a gate that is usually open if you want to get to the road around the lake. There are dirt tracks off both these loops that will have no cars on too. Mountain biking is a great way to ride, avoid cars and enjoy nature. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Could you please explain what "well made" .... "one certainly not made in china" means if also "made in China" ..."doesn’t mean that they are all junkers".

    Firstly you assumed (incorrectly) that these were my neighbors. Secondly you assumed (incorrectly) they were all for male falang. Third you assumed (incorrectly) that I was estimating the size of a market. Please feel free to re-read my reply. I do find it interesting that you claim to be unaware of an area of which I never mentioned. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    You response doesn't hold true from my experience. If the newbie is asking to buy a cheap bike just to go to the market and will probably not really ever use the bike they might be advised by another farang to go to Tesco unless they are not asking a cyclist. I have quite a few bikes and still buy new ones for myself as do many of my cyclists friends. I also take newbies shopping, just last month I helped three friends buy a 12,000 bht, a 110,000 bht and a 159,000 bht bike, all MTB newbies.
