  • ^Question is, will you be satisfied with that bike out of the box? Yung hindi ka mate tempt na gumastos agad for upgrades. If yes, go for it.
    Pero kung may extra budget ka pa, go for a bike na gusto mo yung look, naka air fork kahit stock lang at naka hydraulic brakes na at least shimano mt200. Kasi kung di ka pa full on sold sa bike na yan, magsasayang ka lang ng pera.
  • anu po masuggest nyo, hanggang 15k po budget, salamat.
  • @marialigaya

    yung first bike ko dati is Jamis x3 trail. stock parts lahat around 15k ko nabili. gamit ko sya pang bike to work, pang exercise / pasyal pasyal within the area. unti unti upgrade ng pyesa kapag nasira / naluma. from stock fork naging epicon, from chopsuey groupset naging slx.

    imo test ride mo muna yung 9k bike. kung OK ang fit sa iyo and OK ang ride then go for it. enjoy the ride and paunti unti kung ma-outgrow mo na yung stock parts or may nasira then do the upgrade.

    sa ngayon ang gamit ko is Norco 29er. all stock parts and nag upgrade lang ako ng pyesa after 5yrs - from stock fork to rigid fork, mech brake to disk brake, chopsuey shimano to deore
  • anu po masuggest nyo, hanggang 15k po budget, salamat.


    Well, depende sayo kung saan mo gagamitin eh. Pangte-trail mo ba? or mix of riding? Do you need a front suspension? or parang pang gravel / comfortable type of riding?

    For beginner, you may want to check the overall weight of the bike. You might end up with a bike that is too heavy for you to pedal.

    I'm not familiar with the local pricing, pero yung mga nakikita ko sa youtube @15K ay pasok na sa budget mo. Check mountain peak which appear to be well-made.

    I would also skip this drivetrain, and look for at least an alivio derailleur (or kahit altus) if possible:

    • FD: Shimano Tourney
    • RD: Shimano Tourney

    You can upgrade parts along the way, but that would be more costly and time consuming in the long run.

  • salamat sa nag reply about tires. Hirap maghanap ng ibang brands dito sa amin halos Maxxis lahat tapos yung iba Compass Billy Goat at Panaracer Comet Hard Pack na folded. May nakita akoa sa online baka Continental Race King na lang bibilhin ko.
  • salamat sa mga suggestion, basa basa muna din ako at nood review.. update ako dito pag may nakita.
  • ok ba ang folding na CST Jack Rabbit 27.5x2.2.25 tires?
  • @all

    doble ingat po tayo. wag masyado pakampante pag iiwan ang mga bike kahit tanaw pa natin. malingat kala ng ilang segundo wala na bike mo.
  • saklap nyan bike mo kaya ako lagi ko hawak bike ko pag nasa shop,. even may paradahan nako lagyan nyo lock or mas maganda may kasama ka para taga tingin sa bike
  • Kaya importante na meron din tayo dalang lock
