Hi guys. First post here but been lurking around since last year but just recently became a member. Anyway, do you have any idea on the new Nibiru Conquest 2015 27.5?

This will be my 4th MTB. I used to have 2 unknown brands from Taiwan in 2002 before and got the CJ LE in 2013. Now I am going to give this CJ to my wife and would like to have this Nibiru Conquest as my next MTB and would like to use for trails. I use my CJ 3x a week going to office to save some gas (hahaha) and exercise.

Anyhow, this model has very nice parts already and cheap. It is Php 13,200 in a bike shop in UP Teacher's Village.

The specs are:
Frame: NX2 6600 Alloy 650b Square Tubing
Fork: SR Suntour XCT Alloy with Lock out
Handlebar: Nibiru 31.8D
Stem: Nibiru 31.8D
Crank: Prowheel Flint
FD: Shimano Altus 2015
RD: Shimano Altus 2015
Cogs: Shimano Acera 9 Speed
Shifter: Shimano Altus 9 speed 2015
Brakes: Shimano Hydraulic Brakes
Rims: Nibiru Maxiumum Overdrive
Tire: Maxxis 27.5 x 1.95

Need your inputs and thanks in advance!

@DanDMan: That should do. Maayos na naman ang components nyan. As long as it gets your bum on the saddle and ride, go for it. Safety and emergency tools din dapat meron ka ha.

Niburu Soul 2 is a 26" wheels MTB

Yes the Conquest has bigger wheels but the soul has better geometry. it feels better. don't want to go to that bigger wheels is better argument as it is preference so i would say ride both and see which one appeals to you.

Edit: the soul 2 takes 650B size wheels with a lot of clearance if you want to have that option. I have 2 bikes, 1 26er and the other is a 650B (yes one is a soul 2) i move wheels to either of the 2 everytime depending on my mood. If i want a technical ride with a lot of control i slap the 26er on the soul, if I want to go on the road with higher speed i slap on the 650Bs. of course i also tried 26er on the back and 650B on the front and the other way around. Tip though, having the larger wheel in the back does not feel right

Thanks sa mga inputs nyo...

The Soul 2 has the better components than the Conquest but I prefer now the 650b size, although pwede sya i-convert to 27.5 according to @jvgeli...

Anyway, something was keeping me away from the Nibiru Conquest... I do not know why. I like the Soul 2 in terms of design and components but the stock tire is a 26er, so I have to pay more for the new rims and tires para maging 650b sya.

So ang nangyari, napunta tuloy ako sa Specialized Pitch Sports 650b... mas mahal nga lng sya ng 6.5k pesos sa Nibiru Conquest. Yun na rin kasi ung natipuhan ko na bike na nakita ko sa bike shop na pinuntahan ko. Nagdagag na lng ako... Ok rin naman ang mga components nya at ok naman ung brand.

Anyway, I still have my SGM CJ LE... Kay misis na sya mapupunta... It was a good 1 year and 4 months with my CJ.

If you are willing to spend P36,000 for a mountain bike, you can get better value elsewhere. Check online at OLX or Facebook. You may even get your dream bike at your local bike shop! Scout first. A dedicated bike shop can help you lots.
