Default Fuji Tahoe SL vs Merida TFS Matts Comp vs KHS Alite 2000

Hi,
Ang aking Vision Pursuit Frame ay may crack sa weld sa chainstay-BB
mukang malabo ko nang makita yung resibo pang warranty.

Pagka Laspag ko ng mabuti plano ko na it palitan
(after just 1 month of riding!)

So Iniisip kong bumili ng bagong Frame, eto naiisip ko

White Fuji Tahoe SL Size 19.... weight:???

nag hanap ako sa quiapo nito, puro size 17 lang which is too small for me. anong landmark ba ang malapit sa newton. at mag kakano pinaka murang ganito. nakita ko kanina ay 8.5k

??? Merida TFS Matts Comp Size 18... weight: 1.450 g
di ako familiar sa colors at price can someone please enlighten me,


White KHS Alite 2000 size 19 weight:???
I know one of these can cost around 4.5k Can get it at Ross and Kings

Sooo. Which among these XC frames would be the best?

Suggestions are welcome.

(can handle a 210 pound rider. Tap out kasi pursuit sakin o sadyang lemon ang nakuha ko.)

Nikoguiam: Sir Fuji Tahoe SL user din po ako, bought it from Gran Trail alabang for 8K so far ok naman ang performance nya. I used it sa Bato Bandera trails so far so good... but in your case since you are a heavyweight.... you might consider what Sir EricAlianza posted...

Sir, buti napansin mo ung crack sa frame mo, timing din tanong mo kasi I'm planning to buy a new frame, same brands din ang pinagpipilian ko. Bang for the bucks talaga ung KHS Alite, almost 4500 nga lang, consider ko din Marin ganda kasi ng geometry nya, i'm just waiting for the 2010 models para makapagdecide na.

bro eric, thanks.

bro oldman rider, ang mura ng kuha ninyo ser kailan yun? mahal ng Fuji Tahoe SL 9.5 sa john wilkie at cycle art. 8.5 naman sa global craze. wala ngalang size 19 huhuhu pero may darating daw sa wilkie this week.


bro jing, yup, may pagka OC ako sa Frames kasi... long story.

o-k ang KHS Alite 2000 yun ang first choice ko dati actually. Kundi lang mahal sa pursuit siguro kinuha ko na, wag ka narin mag antay ng 2010 model, as isa lang ang kulay niya, subalit ang 2009 model tatlo kulay.

No idea whe to get a marin frame, magkakano ba iyon?


Sino po may alam ng Nearby Streets sa Newton Multi Sales?

TS: i tried using the 3 frames mentioned, s19 din. among the 3, fuji tahoe sl is my favorite because of it's long top tube. di lang ako familiar sa frame weight because i'm not a weight weenie.


btw, i sent you pm re: 09 fuji tahoe sl for sale.

sir bam, para sa akin merida matts tfs kunin mo wala nga lng size 19 nun mayrun nun size 18 and 20 kunin mo yung 2009model or 2010 sya ang pinaka magaan sa 3frame na pinagpipiliaan mo. kasi 3frame na yan halos sinubukan ko lahat.sa fuji naman ok yung fuji tahoe pro ni sir rob wala naman sa akin naging problema ok pa sa akyatan. sa khs alite 2000 mayrung size 19 at sya ang pinaka mura sa fuji or merida at mahaba din ang top tube ng khs tamang tama sayo at magaan din na frame. ask mo si sir eric mas mabigat sya syo wala naman syang naging problem sa khs alite 2000

i go for the classic round TT&DT design and the 09 Fuji Tahoe SL fits the bill

for me a long TT is better than a short one so that i don't feel cramp and i believe amongst the 3 the tahoe has it

i got the 08 model and even though it's not the lightest the geometry was so nice that climbing is such a breeze and epic/long rides an enjoyable experience

Extreme bikeshop in Panay Avenue has Marin Frames, the HydroHT series is around +/- 12k, cheaper pa siguro sa quiapo bikeshops.
