Default Re: SGM Mountain bike brands?

This is an excellent entry bike if you just want to see if you'll like or still like biking. It's cheap, got mine at toby's for 5,000 +/-.

Frame is sturdy and is built like, este made of steel. Gears are below par, hard time calibrating it. V brakes are so bad.
But rims, cranks wheels are strong For road use.

My only bad experience is that nice bike stores either won't or are reluctant to repair it. I once asked my driver to have the gears and brakes tuned, the store repair guy said it can't be tuned because it's made of poor/inferior
Quality parts.

Again for initial testing the waters purposes it's a good bike but only up to 6,000 because some LBS sell new bikes at 13K
