sir ok na ok yang bike nyo. once na na-upgrade mo na ibang parts nyan, mas mararamdaman mo ang difference. di hamak na mas maganda pa yan sa bike ko, hihi, mine got it for 5k, fake Kona frame, all generic parts. ngayon, frame nalang diko napapalitan. i-enjoy lang ang pagpapadyak sir :-)

FYI:
Just found out about this today yung disc rotors pala ng charles jerry hindi standard yung spacing ng bolts ililipat ko sana sa mob hubs ko and hindi tapat yung holes.

@jdg, saddly hindi nga. Pati calipers, kaya nung napalit ako ng fork, napagastos ako sa preno ng wala sa oras. Nung nag ka interes kasi ako sa cycling hindi ko naman alam ung mga ganung bagay. Ngayin na nahihilig na ako at nauupgraditis, ang hapdi. Sobrang dami papalitan, kahit hubs hindi pwede hbs lng kas daw ung sprockoet ko iba. Free ride. Pero para sakin ok nadin, mura naman suya nung nabili. Pero kung may plan ka na mejo magng seryoso, better save up sa mid ranged bikes. Kasi ganun din mejo malaki din ang gastos. Heheh

Just to share: My first MTB is from Infinity, just got it last Feb for only 10K (sa Quiapo) :-D So far everything is working properly (everything is still stock), tuwing weekend ko lang nagagamit. Farthest I've reached so far using it is from our home in Mamatid Cabuyao Laguna to Nuvali in Sta. Rosa then back home. No matter how much you got your bike, as long as it fills your biking needs eh sapat na yun. ;-D

@choco, you might want to check your db calipers. baka post mount ang RS, tapos pang IS mount lang ang calipers mo.....magpapalit ka nyan.

@ Sir Anthrax: Salamat sa info sir. Will check on this one sir.

@ Sir Opay: Tama ka sir, dapat ipunin ko na lang yung pangupgrade ko into a mid range bike kesa mapalaki pa gastos ko. Kung budget tight ka, tama ang laspagin muna bago magpalit.

Peeps, any more talk about infinity or vision in this SGM thread will be deleted.

If you want a discussion on those bike brands, please create a new thread. thanks
