Default Hybrid Concept.. possible po ba ito??

First of all kung may thread na po na ganito pasensya na po mga admins di ko po kasi makita..

bale plano ko kc sana iupgrade to hybrid ung MTB ko eto po sana plano ko..

MTB Frame with flat handlebars
Rigid fork
27.5 with semi slick tires o MTB slick
---->Question ko po pati dito me pinagkaiba po ba ang semi slick tires sa MTB slick?? (sorry super newbs.. hehe)
drivetrain po sana is MTB sa rear (RD and cogs) with high low gear range sana to accomodate for climbing at roadi nmn sa front (FD and crankset) with at least 52T po siguro ang largest chainring running on MTB shifters
---->Kaya po ba ito?? kaya ba ng RD ng MTB iaccomodate ganito kalaking chainring sa Crankset??

ano pa po namiss ko?? ano pa po kelangan ko iconsider?? any suggestions pa po?? kung magsuggest po kayo ng components pls keep it low end po mejoh mababa po ang budget eh.. tnx mga sir

i assume 27.5 din ang frame and fork na gagamitin mo, hindi naman siguro conversion ang gagawin (26 for everything except the wheelset)

slick tires = walang knobs. semi slick = tires with low or no center knobs pero may side knobs.

saan mo ba gagamitin yung bike? kung ako kasi ang gagawa ng ganyan. i'd rather get a roadbike with triple chainrings tapos palitan ko na lang ng flatbar.

or gaya sa erpat ko, mtb lahat except for the wheelset (700c). hindi nga niya nagagamit yung 44 x 11 na combination eh.

Default Re: Hybrid Concept.. possible po ba ito??

tnx po sir anthrax.. actually conversion nga po.. currently running on 26 po kc ako.. possible po b na mag 27.5 na wheels lang o stick n lang aq sa 26?? ganun po ba kalaki pagpalit ng geo from 26-27.5?? fork lang po kasi sana papalitan ko (nakasuspension po kc aq ngayon na peke naman pala.. di lumalaro.. wahaha!) kung pde saka na ako magpalit ng frame kapag kelangan na talaga.. mahal po kasi at ewan pero mukhang bling lang talaga nakikita ko reason if magpalit ako ng frame.. gusto ko po sana bumilis pa ng konti.. sa ngayon po kasi medy mababa ang gear ratio ng drivetrain ko kaya parang nakukulangan ako sa speed lalo na pag mejo downslope na yung daan..

yung usage po sa ngayon around 80% road at some trails lang.. pero newbs pa lang po kasi kami dito ng mga friends ko kaya ayaw ko magfull road setup kasi hopefully we can do more trails as we get more adventurous with biking po..

ahhh sir me pinagkaiba po ba ang slick sa 700c?? o yun na din yun??

sobrang ganit na po ba pag bumaba na sa 11T n cogs kahit mga 44 lang ang chainring.. largest gear ratio ko po kasi sa ngayon ay 44Tx14T.. ayaw ko sana magpalit ng number ng speed at 7 kasi ang dami ko masyadong palitan ng isang bagsakan.. balak ko po sana get a megarange cogs kahit hanggang 12T or kahit 14T pa din smallest tapos 30+T largest tapos sa cranks aq hahabol ng pagpapataas ng gear ratio..

tnx po sir

Kung road ang FD mo and MTB RD, paano ang shifters mo? I think yung SRAM lang interchangeable ang MTB and Road derailleurs and shifters, but you might need to check again.

if i we're you bro, magpalit ka na lang muna ng drivetrain. kahit alivio na 27 speed masubukan mo man lang. tapos semi-slick na 26 x 1.95 tires. yung fork, kung hindi ka naman mahilig sa drops, go with rigid.

dont complicate things on hybrid set up,change your tires to slick.so,you can get less rolling resistance.ganun lang po ka-simple.mahirap mag mix set up.

if it was me, i wont get rid of the current wheel set, i'll get new x 27.5 wheel sets with slick tires. 44T x 11T will already be good for your road needs.

yeah another form of hybrid which actually just an mtb with slimmer tyres but you can add a drop handle bar with sti and top brake levers to make it a full hybrid if you like or as you suggested at the cx thread.
