Thanks sa pieces of advice nyo.

@ papajet - Thanks.. Unting ipon pa pala para sa Avalanche.


@ iwantone - Mas bagay yata sa akin ang diskbrake since i'm quite heavy. Kailangan ng breaking power pag descend.

@TS

Also a newbie and got my first "true" MTB last thursday from Ross @ Cartimar. Jamix X3 2009 model, pasok sa budget. Deore na ung RD, pero 8-speed ung cog, and shift lever. Discbrake na, tas ung fork, RST Gila T9. Mabait ung store owner, mabait din ung nag-assemble. Kahit newbie ako, tanong tanong and sinagot naman nila. Built bike ung kinuha ko, since di ko alam kung pano i-assemble piece by piece and di ko din sure kung per piyesa kunin ko eh kung makakamura and kung orig nga. Ung nakuha ko na built bike, naka box pa and inassemble on the spot. Enjoying the bike and enjoying the ride. Pinalagyan ko din ng cateye velo5, and ung odometer nya 30KMs na ang reading! Been biking everyday since I got the bike last thursday.

sir, try mo pasyalan yun mga LBS store, pasok budget mo sa mga build bikes like what they said. Basta't be sure na buy ka din ng mga safety gears. Happy hunting.

Just want to ask for your opinion, guys. I'm a newbie when it comes to MTB's and I plan on having one hopefully early next year. I don't have any ideas yet on the specs/parts that I can fit on a 15k budget, but what I want is a decent hardtail that can be used both on the streets and uphill climbs. A GT Avalanche or Chucker seems to be a good frame for a starter bike. A friend advised me to check on the VIsion Pursuit as well. I'm not sure about the budget though. Do you think I need to shell out more for any of those 3 frames? A little help on the set up for any of those 3 frames would be deeply appreciated.

Can you guys suggest the best store where I can have the bike assembled? I've been hearing a lot about bikekings in quiapo. Where is it exactly in quiapo? Thanks in advance!
hi pre, just acquire mine a gt chucker last month with all shimano gruppo (but not the high-end one) for 14k, i've bought it from cycle art bike shop in quiapo, well it's just good for me as a starter too like you, just check it out, coz i've been through canvassing and i've found it there more cheeper than others..........

Default Best built bike for 15k budget?

Hi, Ive been thinking of getting a MTB primarily for fitness and joy riding around the village. I've read alot of threads from the newbies section and Have decided to get a built bike. my budget is around 15k. What's the best brand of built bike that I can buy for this price? I've read here that the KHS Alite 150, Jamis X3, Giant.. etc etc fits my budget but I really dont know the difference between their specs even after looking at their spec sheets in the net since i'm a noob. Hope you guys can help me. Thanks in advance!

Default Re: Best built bike for 15k budget?

you can go for a giant rincon, below 15k ata yun.

mtbs below 15k usually comes with

Suntour suspension forks.
Shimano 8 speed drivetrains. (non series, tourney, alivio, or acera)
some are built with disc brakes, some are with v-brakes.

or you for details on the specs, you may consider visiting or ringing Life Cycle in Greenhills for Giant bikes that may fit your budget, or kung gusto mo talagang makamura: Go to Kings in Quiapo! they carry Jamis and KHS bikes.

pls check out the bike shop directory.

welcome to the world of mountain biking bro! you will really love it! hindi mo ito pagsisisihan!
