  • Race Report: Round 7 of The Papaya Cup - Bulacan, Philippines <click here for link>

    To sum it up. In all my life in mountain biking includes touring Luzon like bike packing, Nag mukhang sisiw yung mga trails ng so far na alam ko. Para kaming na culture shock.

    Sabi nga ng kasama ko.."nangamote sa Papaya Cup"

    The history ng bike, cracks, dents and such. Much better na silipin yung loob ng headtube and bb.

    Check out the Brusko Machete frame sir nasa Php 8,995 :-)




  • @sleepygeepy kmusta sir? natuloy ba yung plus bike project nyo dati?
  • @kagwang

    Sadly on hold muna yung bike plans... wala kasi masyado time at mukhang matatambak lang sa bahay (tulad ni roadbike).

    Pero yung gusto ko sana is Tutubi Carabao frame then lagyan ko ng 27.5+ or 29+ wheelset plus Jones style loop bar. Something like this...



    Pero kung budget build... most likely Brusko Machete frame plus yung cheapest fork na pwede sa 27.5 plus wheelset :-)



    (BTW yung pics nakuha ko lang sa Facebook hehe)

    Hindi ako sure, pero usually dapat 27.5+ din yung fork para magkasiya ang 27.5+ tires. Hindi naman yata kailangan na boost fork and pwede din ang non-boost spacing, as long as kakasiya yung width ng tires.

    Yung iba ata gumagamit ng 29er fork para i-fit ang 27.5+ tires... pero hindi ko kasi alam ano yung maximum na tire width na pwede. Meron ako nakikita sa facebook na using 29er fork with 27.5 x 2.8-inch tires which is plus size already.

    Pero to be safe mas ok na mag 27.5+ compatible fork in case gusto mo ng wider front tire tulad ng 27.5 x 3.0 inches or 3.25 inches.
  • may nakita ako sa sandugo Brusko Sawtooth model ng bike. 27.5+ na.
  • any feedback sa RockShox Paragon? may nakagamit na nito dito? or any budget RockShox air fork?
  • never tried it , ang nakita ko lang sa website is old model siya, released 2014 and 2016 700c tire specific, with vbrake and hydro brake compatibility.

    I suggest get a bnew epixon (6.9k up depende kung TA or Qr)or rockshox tk gold(12k pababa) if limited yung budget
    or get a second rockshox reba sa trusted online seller kung kayang stretched yung budget

    rocksshox reba 29" qr-- 17,+++.00 bnew the cheapest price nakita ko .
    rockshox reba 29" TA15x100 19,+++.00 bnew

    used reba usually cost 15,+++.00 pababa

    hope this help
  • mukhang OK yung epixon ah! window shopping sa aliexpress 2019 epixon. Thanks!
