Yung tig-88 pesos na bell sa Japan Home. Parang pa-cute lang yung tunog. Akala ko malakas nung tinesting ko dun sa store. But I installed it nevertheless. Bumili din ako ng dalawang wheel lights na kinakabit sa spokes @ 88 each. Wala palang on/off switch. Pag hinila yung parang papel na nakaharang sa battery, naka-on na siya.

So far,,, wala pa naman.. haha.. pero kung meron sana is yung locally made TIRES na 26" then hindi sya nag fit sa 26" rim ko hahha... i dont know, newbie here ahaha... buti nalang pwede return yung tires...

possible ba yun? parang, 26x2.1 kasya, pero 26x1.8 hindi? alin ang mali? ung dimension ng tires or ung rim? kasi yung rim is from saudi pa, di ko alam kung iba ba ung standards dun?


sobrang laki ng tire (inner circumference - yung butas) para mag fit dun sa rim.

Dude, may tropa nga ako nasa box pa lang palyado na. Isa 'dun sa mga buttons n'ya na-dislocate na sa shipping pa lang 'ata. At least 'nung inalog namin nasa loob 'yung humiwalay na part. We've never even taken it out of its packaging.

Dude, baka 26x1 3/8 'yung nakuha mo. Same with the rims I've got with me surplus Japanese bikes and those that ply the Pedro Gil pedicab scene. Meron akong surplus bike that I've changed to 559-x.xxx rims because it came with 590-x x/x rims. I am assuming gusto mo mag slicks/threaded-slicks.

Yung CREE na flashlight na binili ko sa 999 Mall worth P600 (natawaran from P700). Okay maliwanag kung sa maliwanag pero 30 minutes lang pag full bright and 90 minutes kung blinker mode. Buti na lang nag donate yung friend ko ng extra 18650 battery from his vape bisyo...3 hours na pag full bright. I had to buy a better charger (Ultrafire P600) for the better battery kasi yung stock charger is undercharging.

Now I'm very happy with the results. Bulabog yung ilaw ko, kahit mga SUV they give way. So it was not totally useless/worthless after all.

Unbranded water bottle na nabili ko sa Global Craze. After 3 rides, nangangamoy nasusunog na plastik ang loob. Sayang pera yung bottle na yun kahit P250 lang. :(

Sayang din yung Specialized na bottle cage na binili ko sa kanila (P250 din). Medyo kino-consider ko tuloy ang bottle size. Baka bumili na lang ako ng adjustable bottle cage...

The stock reflector on my Dahon Vitesse.

It's not "worthless" per se, but it's not all that useful because it mounts on the handlebars and not on the headset. The Vitesse handlebars don't have a wide span, and the reflector mount just takes up space that could be better used on, say, a bell, an extra headlight, or a cycle computer. The reflector also can get in the way of folding.

In other countries, the included reflector is mounted on the Vitesse's headset, just in front of the V brake arms.

Buti na lang may nakaisip ng thread na ito. Very useful, it will really save you a lot of time and precious money before buying any gadget or bike part maging brand new man or 2nd hand. Thumbs up for this thread cobym!

For me, kapag nakakabili ako ng useless or worthless na bagay, whatever it is, hindi ko yun ibinebenta sa halip ibinibigay ko na lang kung may interesado, ayaw ko kasi mangyari sa kanino man yung gumastos ng hard earned money sa bagay na walang kwenta pala. Sana lang, maging ganito din ang prinsipyo ng mga bike shops, sana maging honest sila sa mga binebenta nila at sabihin talaga kung ano quality. meron kasi na mura pero matibay at ang masama, meron din mahal pero mapapamura (curse not save money) ka naman pagkatapos mo gamitin.
