Default Re: Vision Pursuit or DA BOMB xc frame

yes , they have the same manufacturer, i'd go for the vision since its way cheaper then the torabora xc, and its tested by lots of riders! i dont see any advantage in picking the torabora

Default GTS S3 frame

Peeps,

What do you think of this frame?

http://www.gtsbikes.com/product_s3fe.htm

I know its not a good entry level FS frame (being cheap sold less than 10k), but can anyone here share some inputs on this stuff?

Would want to try out good FS but due to budget constraint, am giving this as an option unless somebody here recommends other frames.

Pls share your insights. Thanks in advance!

Default Re: Vision Pursuit or DA BOMB xc frame

just saw a Vision Pursuit 07 and Da Bomb Tora Bora XC side by side, and natuwa ako kse wala halos pinagkaiba, so i guess having a Vision Pursuit is a good bang for the buck.

Default Re: Vision Pursuit or GT Chucker

aggressive xc, no doubt vision pursuit.

the two frame has totally different geometry and riding purposes. i had a chucker and pursuit before. if you are more on pedalling and climbing go with vision pursuit. it comes in different sizes while the chucker has only one size in the market.

Default Re: Vision Pursuit or GT Chucker

raf,

if your gonna use it for XC then Pursuit is the way to go... its lighter than the chucker... you may want to consider the KHS Alite 500 or better yet, the Alite1000...

Default Re: hi newbie here.....

pre, post ka sa "looking for/swap" thread. baka may nagbebenta at makita post mo. check out buy and sell section na rin under 'frames'.

be patient, may mga sasagot pa sa tanong mo. hindi ako maikot sa mga bike shops ngayon eh.

Default Re: pink frame

it's very difficult to find pink frames. most pink frames available are for cancer awareness. ellsworth used to sell pink frames for this purpose. Or you can have the frame re-painted. decals are readily available to replace the old ones.

kaingit bro, your wife will ride with you.
