Default bike appraisal

pa appraise naman po ng bike ko.. pra lng malaman ko kung mas maganda b magupgrade or sell my current bike and get a new one na lng.. kaso low end kaya wala aq makita kapresyo sa mga trade sites.. eto po specs..

Viper frame and fork
generic headset and cockpit
generic crankset (prowheel)
shimano non series fd
shimano non series 7speed cogs
shimano tourney rd
generic chain
generic wheelset (1.75 leo tires front 1.95 generic rear tires)
shimano revoshift 7speed shifter
generic mech disk brakes

issues:
fork has no play.. parang rigid lang sya with a susp design
granny chainring is warped (nabuhol ung kadena pag gamit ung granny; unusable)
brakeset has a history of oil contamination.. mahina na braking power especially sa front with strong squeling sound whenever you brake..

TIA PMTB

Get a new one na lang sir. I haven't encountered your bike brand, so i'm not sure how much it can sell. Good luck!

sir imo benta nyo na lang po as a whole,ng mas mababa sa presyo ng pagkakabili nyo, mahirap po siguro na paghihiwalayin nyo pa. may nakasama nko na Viper brand ng frame nya, nakuha nyo for 6800? di ko alam specs e. minsan lang daw sya magbike kaya naman daw di muna nya iupgrade pero kung balak nyo magupgrade sell it and add na lang yung napagbentahan sa budget for next bike

yes sir.. 6.8k nga.. aun nga po plan ko.. im just gathering opinions po sa price.. ayaq naman po na mabenta xa as UPd or OPd.. as much as possible gusto ko eh fair maging price nya.. hehe.. dapat kasi papalitan ko lng xa ng gruppo then seeing the prices of alivio and acera im considering selling the whole bike na to get a new.. its a good bike though.. if it had a cassette type hubs i might not have considered selling it and just upgraded it instead.. hehe..

mataas na ang 3500 bro.
at may mga papalitan/aayusin pa.
lucky to sell it for 3K.
very very lucky to sell it for more than that.
for the original purchase price, I hope that you've learned much skills and experience in riding.
kasi if your original purchase was a decent bike, your path (normal path) is just to upgrade parts as you grow your skill and experience.

so sell it and you better get a more-than-decent bike, now that you have some skills and experience (i assume that you do — you better do!)

+1 on Slash. Ganyan din ang opinion ko. 1K pa nga sana. I just want to be gentle sana in informing you. :-)

let's put it this way. you can pretty much get a brand new china bike of the same 7 speed specs for around 2K, mataas na ang 3K. you're trying to appraise a second hand bike with a non functioning fork, a useless granny gear and brakes that need fixing.

so that's +2 on Slash's comment.

Default Re: bike appraisal

and for your next 'proper' bike, you'd need a proper budget as well.
i'm not that familiar sa pricing diyan sa atin but my guess is P35K na budget pwede na?
prolly cheaper if having shimano drivetrain.

nga pala, wag mo 'lang-langin' ang pag bike sa kalsada. kung tutuusin sa trail ang obstacles ay
static, meaning not moving. madali maiwasan. sa kalsada ang obstacles ay constantly moving
even moving in your direction! hehehe... reminds me of that stupid taxi na nag cut sakin pababa ng Nagtahan... may he rest.. may he rest well tonight. hehehe..

mataas pa pala turing ko sa bike mo. hahaha.. sabagay ganyan din malamang specs nung mga nauna
kong bike na pinitik sa garahe. sa tapat mismo ng bintana ng kuwarto ko. mapangahas... hehehe...
sana kinuha na sya ni Lord.

sabi nga nila, retain your bike. alagaan mo lang ha.
at mag ipon.
ipon.
ipon.
ipon.
tapos...
.
.
.
GLORIA!

Pag walang bumili, standby mo nalang old bike mo, bili ka nang bagong bike, at pag may upgrade ka sa bago mong bike, doon mo ilagay sa old bike mo, in no time gaganda na rin old bike mo, pwede mo na benta nang medjo mataas na price. hehehe!
idea lang po TS.

or kung di mabenta ang old bike mo - pwede mo rin tong gawing single speed rigid bike pang training.

sayang naman ibenta sa napaka murang presyo kaya pakinabangan mo na lang to sa ibang paraan - like my above suggestion!
