Bro, would you be open to choosing a different colored frame but women-specific or female-friendly frame?

she wants a pink frame brod, probably with red hubs and rims?...she actually enjoys the jamis comfort bike already, if only it was a FS frame.

Vision Cruizer (full-sus), IMHO, is a femme-friendly frame because of the short top tube on the small frame. The weight is not so femme-friendly though.. But yes, they come in pink.

Try the 2008 Kona Four Lisa. I think it would be available this month at All Terra, either as a whole bike, or frame only.

yup, the kona looks really nice! even the pink vision with red hubs and rims would look wicked..there are also pink-colored hope disc brakes but dont know which lbs have it.
good luck on your bike building brod!

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!
Bro its a good frame as long na light trails lang ang padyak mo but the rear suspension can improve better, if you have extra money change the rear suspension and vavoooom your set to hit the trails. (Cheap does not mean not good it depends how you use it) Just put light and good components coz the frame is a little bit heavy. For me, moving mechanical parts are more important coz thats the first to break on trail rides.

it's a URT (unified rear triangle) design. it's okay if you want to start out riding but the suspension design is not that efficient.

you might want to consider a Haro X3, it's an older model (2003), if you're lucky to find one. it's also less than 10K and it's a single pivot which i think is a better design than a URT.

Default Re: newbei here! pls help!

you...you'll use this for XC, the GT AVA is more than capable.

10 to 15K, you might have to settle for Alivio for now, considering na bibili ka pa ng ibang components. and don't forget the helmet. although maraming sa buy and sell section ngayon, most of them are in good shape and lower price.
