try this thread sir... nasagot na ata diyan yung tanong mo...

cheap 29er?

but to cut it short, GT Karakoram retails at around the 20k range pero V-Brakes pa to... i think this is the cheapest so far...

Default Newbie finding a good 29er MTB

Sirs/Ma'ams im planning to buy my 1st ever MTB. meron po ba kayong magandang review about 2011 GT karakoram 1.0? im planning on going for a 29er over a 26er kasi eh. Im about 5"11 tall and weighs aprrox 250 lbs so sa tingin ko mas pogi at macho tignan 29er sakin instead of a 26er. Any comments regarding 29er over 26er for my height and weight?

I've dome my research and im considering a GT karakoram 1.0 kasi i think its the most affordable 29er with a very good entry-level components like the RockShox Recon silver TK 29" Solo Air 100mm Travel fork, shimano octalink chainset and Sram x7 shifters. Its more expensive than the 2.0 version pero im thinking na hindi naman ganun kalaki ung difference at mas maganda ung components ng 1.0. Para narin ma limit ung pag upgrades since student palang naman ako at mahirap mag hanap ng pera. hehe.

Any comments and suggestions will help a lot po! thanks

muka ngang maganda yang gt lalo na yun black, parang ka presyo din ng trek marlin ata (please correct me). height and weight, wala namang diperensya as long as tamang size mo (5'11" siguro medium to large ang size mo) the difference of 29er from a 26er is the wheels. its bigger so may toe overlap sya paglumiko, common.

regarding parts, its an entry level bike. unless you go bombing trails ok na yung parts nya. kung commute walang problema. dont expect a light weight bike sa entry level bikes. suggestion ko lang get a wider hbar, mas tama sa 29er yun. i hope others will comment on your inquiry.

@mrbigger - Thanks po sir sa comment, it helped me a lot! and yes the trekmarlin is almost the same sa karakoram 2.0.

Heavier bike means mas mahirap ipedal sa uphill right? hmm, siguro wala naman masyadong dipirensya sakin un kasi im targeting to loose adipose tissues(fats) and i think my lower body specially my thighs are strong hehehe.

next bike will have voodoo bikes, 29k yung hardtail nila. check out their website na lang or all terra cyclery for availability. kung 29er ka i suggest steel, cant go wrong with steel.

di naman siguro, cromoly sigurado yun. besides you can slash weight on the wheelbuilt and the wheel itself but thats an upgrade. i have a surly km, rigid 29er ss, it weights significantly light. one thing i like about voodoo is its thin tubes like my km. pero kanya-kanyang trip lang yun, which ever you pick have fun with it. many 29er fans did and still having fun with their bikes.

Default Re: Ht 29er built bike from low-high price range

i might consider the 2011 VooDoo Soukri Reynolds 631 steel hardtail 29er, ang bangis ng itsura at para maiba ren pero is the parts for the built bike ba na to is as good as the gt karakoram or the trek marlin or any built 29er's na ka price nya?

A friend of mine texted me and said that he is selling his bike and parts, sabi ko im considering to get a 29er and then he immediately replied to me and said na wag daw ako mag 29er kasi mahirap daw maghanap ng parts, naisip isip ko naman hindi naman ako nag mamadali mag upgrade if ever i get to buy my 29er. Basta ako hindi ako mag papatinag sa mga bumubulong sakin na hindi raw maganda ang 29er. Siguro its a way naren to prevent my self from the "upgraditis sickness" Hahaha

voodoo, nice. tires, rims, spokes at fork lang ang difference ng 29er although di ko sure kung mahirap hanapin yun cosidering na madaming 29er bikes na lumabas ngayung 2011. anyway nice choice, pictures ha! pwede mo nang sabihing "mine is bigger than yours" ihihihi!

69er hmmmm. . . your fork, rims, spokes and tires would be the prime candidates. . . pwede daw kasi gamitin yun 26er tubes sa 29er.

medyo may kamahalan ata ang Merida 29er bike... if it will be priced at 65k, dagdag na lang ako ng 10k for an XTC tapos naka Fox fork pa and lighter yung bike...
