comfortable free SIM

In this trip, I used a prepaid SIM in my own smart phone and it was reasonable, comfortable and very useful, such as to find restaurant, to research the map or to post to SNS.

So, SIM free cell phone and local prepaid SIM are indispensable for recent abroad trip.

replaced to FC-7800

Last weekend, I replaced the crank of CAAD8.
Old crank is the grade 105, FC-5800, with gear size 52/36T.

And new one is Dura-Ace, FC-7800 that is about 10 years ago model, which was gave from Mr. Hiraoka.

Its gear size is 50/34T, compact model.
It is an upgrade, but means also returning to old model.

However I felt good impression when tried to ride after changing a crank.

It was recognized that compact gear was fit for my pedaling ability and that Dura-Ace was still excellent with getting old.

A good horse becomes never a jade.
An old eagle is better than a young crow.
A diamond on a dunghill is still a diamond.

Special thanks,  Hiraoka-san.
