  • thanks popoy. buti pa dyan merong ganyan. been eyeing the spez romin 155 or yung next smaller 145 ata.
  • Is Manitou Marvel Comp a good fork? or is there a better fork with the same price range? TIA!
  • sa ganyang price range yan na pinaka maganda.pero kung may makukuha kang expert mas maganda yun. bukod sa magandang performance madali pa i-service ang manitou forks, kayang kaya i-diy.

  • ask lang mga paps nagpalit na ako nang RD at chain both bnew at 10s kaso pag nag shift ako sa gear may talon pa din siya at hindi agad kumakagat pag shift

    nasa tono na lang ba ito?
  • Do you guys know where to buy Indoor Bike trainers? Similar to this <click here for link>. My local bikeshops in muntinlupa seem to never have carried stock of it

    tono is like 50 pesos yun was the first thing to rule out kasi least expensive. Pa-tono mo na.
    ung cables, check the pull and IF they are actually pulling. Baka may gunk sa loob ng cable housing, balikong cable, etc.
    ung RD hanger, check it. baliko ba?
    Yung cassette mo how old?


    @Conchusness
    bike trainer. Sa cartimar ang dami. Pinaka common is minoura b60.
  • @popoy,

    thanks for the saddle info. sa bikeworx ba sa binan, pwedeng magpafit ng saddle?. Sa saddle mo how much ang price and anong brand?

    thanks in advance.
  • sir ok na ba tong spec na to for starter? thanks in advance

  • @dupling
    I was there to buy tires, inquired about the prologo saddle and they offered to fit me - it was free. They input my measurements, flexibity, sit bones width, etc into the computer and I was recommended me the prologo scratch 143 mm pero wala sila stock so I ended up buying a different brand w/ the same 143 mm width. Scratch depending on the variety (rails) is 3k to 5k.

  • @Popoycanton

    Magkano ba siya? I was looking for something below mga 5k eh
  • @con
    b60 3.5k IIRC this year lang ako bumili. No remote model yan, pero sa totoo lang hindi mo naman talaga kailangan pa ung remote. Ung may remote plus 1k~ish. Sa 5k tingin ko makakabili ka na nung fluid type, sabi nila mas-real word feeling daw un. Anyway you should look into that since malaki-laki naman budget mo.

    Thanks sir Arutha! mga nasa magkano kaya ang marvel expert?
  • @popoycanton

    Thanks for the reply pare! Im gonna try to go to cartimar during my free time. I don't mind naman kahit mura lang na trainer. Kailangan ko lang para pwede magamit kung feeling ko gusto ko mag bike pero masyadong maiinit o umuulan hahahaha. Iiwan ko lang naman sa den

    Madali lang naman yung installation noh

    = tinono nung mekaniko to nung nagpalit ako chain at cassette


    ung cables, check the pull and IF they are actually pulling. Baka may gunk sa loob ng cable housing, balikong cable, etc.
    = inadjust nya din yung cable binanat nya ng konti

    ung RD hanger, check it. baliko ba? =
    negative paps i just on and off the switch

    Yung cassette mo how old? = bnew paps same nung chain

    sakit ng ulo yan :) Best you can do is observe and adjust, observe and adjust. How about ung free hub body na check na kung baliko? ung cable housing malapit sa RD natignan?

    salamat ulit poy, for sure dadrop ako dun.
  • Madali lang naman yung installation noh


    for MTBs, medyo madali lang. iipitin mo lang yung magkabilang skewer, at idiin mo konte yung gulong mo sa roller. pag rb kasi, medyo madali mag bend yung seat stays dahil hihigpitan mo yung pang ipit ng axle/skewer. add mo pa yung pag galaw ng katawan mo left and right specially when you are at 100% powering your pedal @ 120-150 rpm.

    the best ang trainer if you want undisturbed pure pain sufferfest training. :)

    btw, you will need smooth tires sa mtb, or get a slick tire. malakas masyado ugong ng tires na may spikes.

    Sir where you from sa Sta.rosa?

    Dito lang ako sa Tagapo.

    tagal ka na nag ra-ride?
  • Wallcolm, baka worn out na yung cables kaya di makapag shift ng maayos, ano ba problem mo? Shifting down or up?
  • @kervin konting ipon pa.. may mga mas makukuha ka pang ok na 2nd hand na giant bike or merida.
