ok na rin para sa akin 'yan!
Palitan na ng Kenda SB8 Tire sa likod iyan para mas magaan padyakan!

800+/pc. Wire Bead not so sure
1.3k/pc. Folding Bead

Pero sa Quiapo may mga 9-11K na built bikes na halos pareho ng specs...
SR Suntour XCT fork na pala kasama in that price range sa Quiapo...

I have a 2011 SGM Charles Jerry.

I have already replaced (upgraded) the bottom bracket, chain plate and arm kasi yun talaga ang gusto ko'ng palitan nung una pa lang. And besides, medyo di talaga maganda yung crank arm at plato kasi generic lang at basta na lang nakakalas yung left arm kahit sikipan. Next upgrade ko tires naman.

So far, I'm very satisfied with the performance sa road, gravel at semi rough trail. At basta laging malinis yung bike, siguradong napapansin at nililingon sa daan dahil maganda ang porma at design ng batalya.

Overall, it's a great entry level mountain bike. Maganda na mura pa. Kung hindi ka naman maarte sa bike at maingat ka naman sa gamit, malamang di mo na rin kailangan mag-upgrade.

natira sa charles jerry ko wheelset, tires, and drivetrain na lang. pansin ko mas stiff ang charles jerry frame compared sa khs alite2000 lalo na yung rear triangle, siguro 7005 alloy ang gamit ng sgm sa frames nila compared sa iba na 6061 na mas flexible.

sulit din yung kenda kobra semi slick tires na kasama 847km na natakbo ko since end of december visible pa din yung thread pattern sa rear tires ko saka 1 beses pa lang naflat dahil sa bubog.

yung wheelset(non-casstte type hubs) matibay din hanggang ngayon smooth rolling parin wala pang repack kung saan-saan ko pa ito dinadaan at ang bigat ko pa.

overall kung 7-8k budget you wont go wrong in purchasing an sgm bike.

magaan din ang frame ng sgm pabigat lang yung bike stand na nakakabit sa chain stay, na puwede naman tanggalin.

SGM Charles Jerry owner here, anyone upgraded their for already? Any recommendations? Di ako marunong mamili ng fork eh, hindi ko naman afford mag rockshox or fox dahil studyante lang ako. Me nakikita ako suntour xcr, ok baun? in comparison sa Zoom na originally installed? Para kasing hindi naman nakakaapekto ung shock absorber na stock.

^ xcr(2.5-3k) mas ok kesa stock na zoom fork, pero mas maganda epicon(6k+) kasi air sprung. xcr pinaka unang upgrade ko sa charles jerry ko.

For me sgm is a good bike for starters, ang papalitan mo kaagad dyan is fork, ang alam ko hindi post mount ready yung zoom fork nyan, tama si gundamtokwa @12k pag sa quiapo ka bumili eh medyo mas maganda na bike ang makukuha mo, last month i was in quiapo ang presyo ng sgm hurricane is 10k, 7.5k ang sgm charles jerry at 6k yung light intensity is 6k.

SGM din starter bike ko, basically if generic lang chain niya i suggest you upgrade it for trail/uphill rides then kelangan sealed bearing yung pinagkakabitan ng crank/plato kasi commonly sa SGM korona type lang if may budget ka palit ka ng Epicon fork kasi medyo stiff yung zoom. hope this helps.

i got my SGM charles jerry 2 years ago pa... ngayon, ang stock na lang sa kanya are the frame and saddle... initially, pang commute ko lang talaga sana sya... then i get hooked to "mountain biking" after joining PMTB... so the parts that won't stand the tortures of the trails has to go, and the rest is history... but i must say, the frame is sturdy enough that it even endures Lamesa, fort bonifacio and camp bagong diwa trails.... yung stock saddle, bilang na lang ang araw nya...

Onga heard of XCR and epicons. Pag nag epicon ako mukhang un lang mauupgrade ko eh. Guess we should share upgrades? Hahaha, ganda ng frame ng CJ, pagnakakakita ako ng may ibang may-ari kapansin pansin talaga.

SGM Hurricane din first built bike na binili q bought it P9500 sa quaipo wayback on Dec2010. At first ok sya pero katagalan nabigatan aq kc 2.35 ung goma kya advise q palit ka ng mas maliit.Upgrade din aq ng fork to xcr the rest ok na. Actually halos lahat na ng parts npaltan q na natira na lng upuan at shifter kakaupgrade pati frame npalitan q na then I sell it and sold for 21k. Now I already assembled a 2012 Merida TFS 1000.

para sakin lang ok na ok yan. starter bike? i know a lot of riders who would love to have your setup. mabigat man, or parts are not top of the line, or etc. etc. pero what's important is to just enjoy riding. like the others have said padjak lang ng padjak. sabi nga diba, "wala sa pana, nasa indian"
