Hi guys. I'm relatively new to MTBiking lang din. Got an SGM CJ 2013 2 months ago as my starter bike. I-bebenta ko na siya hindi kasi sakto yung size para sakin 17 siya at 5'10 ako.

Budget is around 18-19k max.
Part of my choices are : (Medyo limited kasi nag hahanap ako ng may Large 19 na frame)
Kung 29er
1. Fuji Nevada 1.7 18k
2. Cannondale Trail 6 18k
Kung 26er
3. Vision Chase 2013 12k

Mga iniisip ko lang po.
1. Malaki ba difference ni Altus kay Tourney?
2. Suggested ba mag 29er agad kahit newbie?
3. Yung compatibility po ng hydro brakes saan ko titignan? Fork and Frame?

Sorry sir newbie po kasi talaga. Di pa kaya mag assemble mag isa.
Any suggestions are welcome. Salamat!

Yes sir, kung gusto nyo ng 29er go lang. Ang sabi nila, mas may advantage daw talaga ang 29er sa mga lubak/trails. Newbie man or hinde, it still is a personal preference kung 29er ang gusto mo.

Tapos go for Altus na rather than Tourney. Pero kung kaya ng budget, why not go with Acera or Alivio.

@iamsanji

Cannondale Trail 6, my friend bought one and wala ako narinig na reklamo sa bike niya, lalo sya naadik. May 26er naman na Cannondale Trail 6, wala naman preference kung newbie ka o hindi sa pagbili ng 29er. Nasasayo yun, pero just my two cents, kung may mahihiraman kang 26er and 29er try them both, then after the trying both pili ka. Kaso parang mahirap yata agad agad i justify yung sagot dito since once mo lang sila hihiramin, except kung hihiramin mo ng ilang beses para talaga mafeel kung san ka comfortable. Just my two cents though.

@mynameisrolf Oonga sir eh. Pag iisipan ko siguro depende sa availability. Baka kasi mag 29er ako tapos mahirapan mag hanap ng gulong malapit sa amin. :P

@mkuy21 Grabe ang lakas ng dating mo siguro sir. :P Hehe. Nice nice. Alin dun na shop sir? Hehe. Matignan nga yan. Alin yan sir 26 or 29? May pinalitan na kayo na parts sir?

@somikko26 Yan kasi pinaka-'hindi mo na i-uupgrade' dun sa list of choices ko sir eh. Kaya pinag iisipan ko din talaga. So far sir may pinalitan na ba friend niyo? Medyo tinitignan ko din yung Trail 5 kaso mas mahal nga lang.

For newbies po pala, mas ok ba mag hydro na agad? Sabi ng kakilala ko mahirap daw kasi since baka mali ang pag adjust at malaki daw effect sa brakes. Unlike sa Mechanical Disk Brake na newbie friendly. Salamat mga sir.

Update : Nabenta na lumang bike. Kaya need ko na bumili this weekend or next. Hehe.

@iamsanji dinaan ko lang sa pangungulit at konting kwento-kwento tungkol sa personal life hehehe! Sa GC Cyclist sa Quiapo ko nakabili ng bike ko, so far hindi pa naman ako tinatamaan ng upgraditis hehehe.. 26er yun akin sir, pero alam ko may 29er din dun. dagdag ko na rin sir, may nakita ko dun na Nevada 2.0 yata un 29er, 12.5k lang if you are opting for that size and an entry level bike. Check niyo na lang specs sa net. ^^

@mkuy21 Sayang sir nag tanong ako sa quiapo. Walang silang saktong frame size sa akin ng Nevada 1.7 sir. Check pa ako iba. Hehe. Pero mukhang eto na talaga kukunin ko. Natutuwa ako sa paint job ng frame niya.

Hi po sa lahat! Newbie po from Las Piņas. After reading all your inputs here and to other threads, I have finally decided to go for a GT Avalanche 3.0 as my starter bike. Salamat po ng madami….pero naguluhan nanaman po ako when I saw this folding MTB (Hummer). I wonder why no one suggested this as a starter bike . 15k po ang selling price. This is within the 20k budget may sukli pa.

Folding na MTB ba kamo? Kung folding yan, baka mahirapan yan sa trails. Baka makalas yan sa mga drops and the thread is I think about hardtails suggestions lang, kaya walang nag susuggest ng folding. Congrats sa bagong bike, padyak na!

Hi Sevenfold, welcome sa PMTB!

Here's my take. Kung commuter bike, okay na yang 10 to 13k budget bike since hindi ka naman masyado t-trails (90% road, 10% trails/lubak?), pero trail worthy na rin yan pareho. My friend of mine got the Altus Ryder, okay na rin yung components nya kasi yung groupset is Altus, Shimano na rin. Kung ano mas trip mong design, yun na bilin mo since matibay naman yang parehong brand na yan and also yes! BANG for the buck yan!

Newbie ako mga bros. kontik na ko masiraan dahil nagroyal rumble sa isip ko kung anong bike bibilhin ko. under 20k din budget ko. Unang tiningnan ko un mongoose tyax comp, sabi ng tropa KHS daw, tingin ako ng alite 150, 350. fuji nevada 1.5, mosso custom built sa cartimar. Ended up with GT Avalanche 3.0 from Bicycle World Pasay. Nainlove ako sa satin black color, at sa tingin ko disente naman ang components para sa isang starter bike. Madaming trails dito sa lugar namin, so far enjoy naman ako sa pagbbike kasama un mga kamag anak ko, puro kami nagsisimula pa lang.

Hi, good evening po.. Hingi lang po ako ng advice tungkol sa GTchucker3.0 built bike.. Eto po yung reference:

http://www.sulit.com.ph/index.php/vi...+mountain+bike

pumasyal po kasi ako sa isang LBS, at nakita kopo yung ganyang built bike.. Below 20k po ang price. Isa pong concern ko is yung fork:

Fork: Inverted Triple clamp Z1100 Zoom

ayos lang po ba ito? any comments po sa built bike na ito.. nasa 230lbs po ako, sana kayanin ako.. hehe, no doubt po ako sa frame since elementary pa lang ako, ito na ang gamit ng mga kaibigan kong nagbbmx.. Newbie lang po ako sa MTbiking, any owners po? pa-review nalang.. Maraming salamat po

^chief, are you buying that bike with jumps in mind?


GT bikes are nice, you might also want to consider the avalache and karakoram.

I recommend Cannondale Trail 5 for an entry level trail bike.

NagSGM Charles Jerry den ako. Ok yung sgm bike pero mejo maliit den saken yung size 17.

I got myself. Cannondale trail 5,medium size. size 18. Sakto saken yung size 18. I think 5'8-5'9 ako. Para saken, pulido gawa ng cannondale. smooth shifting compared to sgm cj. never pumalya shifting gears kahet sa trail, one click.

I got it for 18k, 26er. 18.5k yata 29er

sir popoycanton, more on urban riding po sana.. kaya natanon ko din yung intergrity nung Zoom na fork, nabasa ko din na recommended sa chucker is 100mm na travel lang kaya medyo nagalangan (baka kasi bumigay yung frame dahil sa fork travel) and at the same time nacurious ako sa builtbike na ito (dahil sa looks, medyo downhil look. ganun kasi gusto ko).. tinanong ko yung LBS kung assembled lang nila yun, ang sabi naman eh dumating na daw ng buo yung MTB sa kanila. Isang factor din kasi talaga yung weight ko sir, maraming salamat BTW, sobrang noob lang po sa MTB, though nagkaMTB ako nung elementary days 'til highschool just for fun, this time kasi for healthy living naman at makatipid ng konting gasolina sa pagmomotor ko hehe.. Thanks alot
