Default Re: My Starter Mountain Bike - SGM Hurricane for 12k Good or Bad

ang tanong muna diyan sir eh..
1. bakit kailangan ko mag upgrade?
2. magkano ang handa kong bitawan na halaga sa pag uupgrade ko?

just thinking, why settle for an entry level bike kung may budget kayo sa upgrades.... you must have customized the built na lang... hindi pa sana nadoble ang gastos.... tama ga? (sorry for being sarcastic, mahal na ngayon ang piyesa ng bike)

Ako sa 2011 sgm evolution nagsimula as in bakal talaga at rim lang yung alloy. Basta nag-eenjoy ka sa bike mo padyak lang ng padyak.

My officemate bought SGM CharleJerry ba yung frame na yun 10K yung whole bike, pinalitan lang nya yung frame ng Infinity tsaka yung tires to kenda cobra... dagdan nalang ng 1200.. Tapos ride all the way pauwi. SO far ok naman yung performance nya kahit 7 speed lang... Padyak lang ng padyak sir and let's share our passion for BIKE to others.

Those 2 were also my choices before I bought my bike last week. For me, go with vision 1.5. By the way, magkano yung vision 1.5 na nakita mo sa sulit?

Why not try my new bike, its all shimano parts same like SGM's, but upgraded, like Suntour XCT fork, etc... maybe you know it already.

Its an freeway Infinity bike. A little lighter than SGM, same weight as V1.5, i knew because it is one of my choices wherein i placed them side to side and weight them alternately with both hands. The only difference is the components between SRAM and Shimano.

By the way this cost me 10k in quiapo

For anyone's who's starting into Mt. Biking, kung sakali man that you got a bike that wasn't worth the cost or if the bike didn't have good components, it's all good, it happens to any first timer going to a hobby or whatever it may be...

Sir, as long as you're happy with your bike, just as I've read into your succeeding posts, it's all good, and for the price of 12k, I am most sure that susulitan mo naman yung usage nito, until such time that you already know what you want in a bike...

Totoo ang sinasabi ng madla, wala talaga sa bike yan, nasa pumapadyak...

At the end of the day, to each is own parin...

Have a safe ride, enjoy, and congrats on your new bike...

Default Re: SGM Mountain bike brands?

I also own a SGM Light Intensity Mountain Bike. I bought mine last February at 6.5k. I recently replaced the Kenda road tires with Maxxis Crossmark 2.1 trail tires and the pedals as well since i use my bike at the Nuvali Trails in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. So far the bike seems ok except for the mechanical brakes especially during downhills. I plan to replace it with hydraulic brakes. I also plan to replace the fork with epicon forks as suggested by other riders.
