Hi ask ko lang kung ang SGM ay Niburu na ngayon? or imitation lang ang niburu? I just bought niburu soul 2 and did some search sa google pero walang lumalabas na info. Newbie biker lang din po ako. I can say na hindi naman ako disappointed sa binili ko. Mas okay lang sana na malaman na hindi class a or imitation yung binili kong bike.But IMO, very smooth yung bike although di pa ako nakakapag trail. Alivio groupset with XCM fork w/lockout and non series hydro brakes. Pasok na pasok sa 15k budget ko

Nibiru po yun SGM dati. Pinalitan nila name nila (rebadged?!?) dahil sa mga issues nila sa folding bikes nila.

Pero SGM MTB owner din ako dati, wala namang issues sa MTB nila. Except ata dun sa Arrow. I can be wrong though.

Backread ka sir, You will encounter issues sa other parts if opt to replace steel frame to Alu gawa ng sizes ng ibang components.

kung mabilis ka pumadyak pero mabagal pa rin try to shift your gears hanggang bumilis. kung sa tingin mo yun na pinakamabilis mong combination ng gears pero di ka pa rin satisfied sa bilis, upgrade your drive train/group set.

i go on the fastest gear combination (yung front pinaka malaki yung back pinakamaliit) i pedal as fast and as hard as i can on flats pero pag may kasabay akong ibang mountain bike mas mabilis sila pero yung pedal nila parang normal lang.

Palit ng drivetrain or groupset na nga ang sagot dyan sir tontonics. Pero, IMO kung ok pa naman yung components mo eh wag ka na muna magpalit. Wala naman siguro mawawala kung medyo mas mabagal ka ng konti kesa sa ibang bikers - unless sasali ka ng race. hehe

Yan din bike ko sgm elite bought sa gc cyclist. Im 240 lbs at kaya naman ako nung FS nya hehe. Ang issue ko lang eh may konting play yung pivot nya malapit sa pedal. Nilagyan ko na lang ng shim yung pivot ayos na. So far ok naman performance. Pagkabili ko padyak na ako from quiapo to las pinas. Hindi ko na inupgrade. Pag may nasira na lang

Minsan na sa gulong din yan taas mo tire pressure. Or palit ka nung mas smooth na tires.

Yes, Nibiru is the old SGM and i too bought the Soul 2. love the frame! Alivio FD, RD and 9 speed Shifters and non-series hydraulic brakes at 13,950 only sa SM North pa na Bike Plus so sure ako na di peke.

Anyway, replaced the bottom bracket with Deore and the tires to 650B. Sarap i ride. Planing to wear out the brakes and the drive train before upgrading.

BTW: i used the other parts to build my wifes MTB as well so win win..

ang panalo sa akin talaga ay ang frame. I just love the look and feel of it. dont know why.
