Default Re: Where to find folding bike?

bro swordsman, sa almost 1 month kong pagbabasa tungkol sa fodling bikes eto yung mga nalaman ko tungkol sa replacement/aftermarket parts:

1. headset: dun sa folding bike ko (peerless brand), 1 1/8 inch threaded headset ang nakalagay, kaya tingin ko medyo mahirap maghanap ng replacement, ganto rin ata ang gamit ng older model ng dahon
2. front hub: tingin ko eto ang pinakamalaking problema since halos lahat ata ng folding bike ay hindi gumagamit ng standard 100mm front hub
3. rear hub: replaceable naman kasi sinukat ko yung akin 130mm ang spacing, so malamang road bike hub ang kakasya dito
4. BB: yung akin ay 83mm ata at maraming available na options for replacement
5. rims, tires, tubes, spokes: problema ito kapag 16" ang gulong ng folder mo..di ko pa natanong kung may available ba na rims at spokes for 16" dito satin..pero yung tires and tubes readily available naman
6. handlepost, seatpost: due to the unusual length ng mga parts na to, mahirap makahanap ng aftermarket na pamalit

please correct me na lang if there's something wrong sa mga nabanggit ko

BTW, I asked Kevin (siya yung nageentertain sa mga tumitingin ng folding bikes dun sa dealer ng Dahon sa may Q.Ave) kung readily available ba ang replacement parts, sabi niya as of now wala pa silang supply ng parts, pinaplano pa lang ata na mag-import din.

Default Looking for Folding Bike

I live in Cainta (Ondoy Territory) and work in Makati.

Considering that rainy season is back again, I've thought of a way to save the cars, if not the house. At the first storm, I will be parking both cars at higher ground but I need quick way to get back home to get the 2nd car, after parking the 1st car.

At first, I planned to use my fullsize MTB and trunk mounted bike rack. Too tedious, I thought. I decided that a folding bike would do the trick, just mount it in the car trunk, pedal home, pick up the 2nd car then bike home again to wait out the storm (and flood).

Can anyone point me to a shop that sells these tiklops at a fair price, considering my very simple need?

I could use the folding bike and commute via LRT & MRT, but considering the lack of respect for human decency at each MRT station, this might not be a good idea.

Try Japan surplus shops near the area... JTO near rainforest in Pasig and other one I know is in front of BF steel (Old LTO office in cainta)

Talaga? Last time(a month ago yata) napadaan ako dyan sa Tryon, parang almost same lang price nila sa QA main distributor, na napuntahan ko rin. Although hindi pa ko tumawad pa, so baka pag nagkatawaran na lalabas na mas mababa dyan. Though same din sa distributor sa QA ave, may discount pa on cash purchase daw.

May isang Dahon model sa Christy's, yong yellow na mukhang semi-racer na 65k sa Tryon at sa QA ave, last price na sabi nung tindera 55K. Ewan kung tama pagkarinig ko o tama ba presyong binigay nung tindera.

Parehas ata sila ng SRP pero sa QA(Junni Industries) 5% discount pag cash sa TRYON nasa 10% pero phone inquiry ko pa lang ito... not sure baka mas mababa kapag nandun ka na sa shop mismo at bibile na

Giant is a little cheaper than the Dahon. Got the Giant, imo, feel they are generally the same bike with diff brands. Satisfied with the Giant, thought of buying a second one, but O/S na, all sold out.

Giant and Dahon, both give discount for cash.

Default choosing a folding bike

tanong ko lang po, na-uupgrade po ba yung mga folding bikes natin? i own a Giant FD806. gusto ko po sana mag-upgrade ng mga parts.

let's say papalitan ko po ng 3 speed crank yun sa harap or lagyan po ng disk brakes sa harap at likod. san po bang bike shop ang may mga upgrade parts po?

thanks!

Smile Re: Where to find folding bike?

just bought a foldable bike yesterday.. i was originally looking for a dahon fb but to no avail, can't find any.. all the agents(barker) that i've talked to said that the brand is hard to find nowadays masyado daw sumikat ang dahon., di pa napaparating ang container e may nagbabayad na o may order na kaya pag dating e sold out na. I was able to buy a cheap one. the sticker says "B-STRAIT". Its a japan surplus. lahat ng nakadisplay ngayun dun e puro ganyan na lang. siguro chambahan na lang talaga. I'll post pics of my find ASAP. BTW i got it for only PHP1,900.00, though some parts like the wheelsets and the chain needs to be replaced.

Not to mention because of the more than 6" of height we lord over 20, kung sumemplang tayo, mas malalim ang sugat.

Wala lang naman. Just sharing an insight.
nice insights regarding 20 inch wheels... it gave me an idea about restoring an old 20inch bike...

Go. Go. Go restore 20 incher ... plorwaks.

Tapos PM me. Let us meet at some LRT1 or 2 substations lining the city. Sakay tayo sa LRT. Baba tayo sa C.M. Recto. Bike tayo towards Binondo to eat Chinese food. When busog na, digest natin Chinese food we ate by biking more around the city. Tapos ... split na tayo.

Tiklopers here in PMTB are rare and so far in between. Suwerte na kung may maka-ride ako ng one or two foldicts once a month. More of a tikloper once per 3 months.

ay Sir yung 20 inch ko eh regular bike... pero mountain bike ang frame(steel)... Decathlon Rockrider... sampung taon na... kaya nung makita ko tong post nyo eh baka pwede rin sya gawin trail-worthy... kelangan nga lang siguro magpalit ng mga parts...

pero nagbabalak pa rin ako ng isang folding... especially ngayon sa offer ng LRT... madali na bitbitin diba?

Madali bitbitin ang folding bike. Mine weighs 28.5 lbs. Medyo mabigat kasi low end Dahon. Yung mga high end Dahon weighs lighter at 22-24 lbs.

Lighter weight matters because marami kasing bitbitan up and down flight of stairs of LRT. Pero kung bumubuhat ka ng bakal (barbels) magaang lang bitbitin ang folding bike.

Dahon takes 15 seconds to fold. Other brands take from 5 to 30 seconds para i-tiklop.
