hindi dapat magbago ang frame size regardless of wheel size. kung sa 26 is 18" ka, dapat sa 29'er ganun din.

check mo muna kung fit sa 'yo yung bike. now, kung makakasabay sa trail....nasa nakasakay na po yun

3 sa mga kasama namin ng tatay ko eh Trinx ang bike. So far, ok naman mga bike nila and nakakasabay naman din sila sa amin kasi malakas din naman sila mag-bike. Sabi ko lang sa kanila, i-wear out nalang muna yun mga piyesa niyan bago magpalit. Tsaka obserbahan nila yun bike nang mabuti dahil nga yun ibang parts ay generic lang

Sir, mahal po yata yang trinx sa 16k. Tingin po kayo ng mas magandang deal. Baka mas okay pa ang ryder na naka-deore na. Mas mahal lang yata ng konti. Magresearch po muna kayo bago bumili. Andami din po ngayong nagpapalit towards 29er, kaya yung mga 26er nila ay dinidispose at reasonable prices. Yan po ay kung gusto nyo ng second hand.

hi gelzkie, new user lang din. tingin ko oks naman yung Trinx na type mo. yung brakes lang di kilala, mukang yun pa naman ang main concern mo. baka palitan mo din agad yan. Shimano-non series or Tektro brand usually kasama sa entry level bikes.

Saka yung 26 vs 29, medyo malaki difference nyan kaya sure mo lang kung ano gusto mong riding style. kung same na tao lang gagamit yung 26 inch - mabilis iliko, italon, mas agile. yung 29 - mabilis sa straight, akyatan, at madaling sagasaan ang mga lubak.

Sir, kung trinx talaga ang trip nyo may mga 7-8k na trinx alloy bikes sa quiapo maghanap na lang kayo ng shop na pwede i-upgrade ang groupset to either full acera or alivio pasok pa rin sa budget nyo, dagdag lang ng konti naka deore ka na.. Maporma talaga trinx lalo na yung paint jobs, grips and saddles so if you notice nagfocus na rin sa "cosmetics." Kung maging aggresive pa ang marketing nito mas makikilala pa tong brand imho. My friend had a steel trinx for 6k from quiapo, eto ang isa sa mga reasons na naka engganyo sakin para mag bike ulit nung pinasubok nya sakin.

Some Merida/Giant (and other branded ones) bikes have better components for the same (or similar) price. Yung nabili ni Sir Sanondail na Big Nine is a great deal. If you could find something similar in terms of prices and components, then you should put it in your list. I suggest na magtingin ka lang sa mga LBS, make a list, then ask for help here (madami naman super helpful dito). And lastly, hanapin mo yung bike na fit para sa'yo

Edit: I noticed na nilagay mo na 5'8" yung height mo. I guess a built bike with a frame size of 17-18 would be for you.

Nothing wrong choosing trinx over a giant o merida (though mas subok na etong brands na to compared sa trinx) its just that kung maghanap ka pa you'll find a better spec'd trinx over dun sa 16k trinx mentioned. You're also considering options online if I'm not mistaken, pls consider bike shops like Ryans or Glorious Ride in QC or shops in quiapo or cartimar, mas mura ang mga Trinx dun, panalong panalo na for 13-15k baka makakita ka pa ng ibang brands.

In the end, sir, ikaw pa din ang mag-decide kung ano ang ipapadyak mo . Kung ang puso mo ay nasa Trinx X5 then, by all means, go for it. Tatagal din naman yan basta maalaga at maingat ka. Suggest ko lang is to look for other options both in bikes and bike shops. Check jryanmc page regularly, kasi madalas sila naguupdate ng new bike arrivals. Marami din naman LBS sa QC na pwede mo tignan. List down all your possible "to-buy bike" and i-sort out mo nalang yung priority mo sa pagpili sa kanila (e.g., looks, specific components, color, etc). Good luck!

Sir, kung sa Ryans's ka nagtanong dapat may 10-15% discount pa so yung 16k pwede pa bumaba 13-14k, ganun din sa ibang shops, pero kung nagpunta ka mismo sa shop at yun na nag price na binigay sayo, ang mahal nga for 16k. Hanap hanap pa sir ang dami dyan.
