2 of my friends uses infinity built bikes
we've only been to light trails and their bikes never had problems (bikes equiped with shimano non-series and altus parts)
since you're 5'10 I'd recommend getting a size 19 frame and get a helmet too

Infinity MTB owner here. Bang for the buck yung bike even in its stock form. I'm from Cabuyao Laguna and so far here are the places I've been with my bike: Tagaytay, U.P. Los Banos and Pila Laguna. Not sure if MTBikers can really call them as "trails" kasi lahat yun sa national highway ang daan. :-D

I'm just wondering if I can equip this bike with a 29" wheels? 6'1" kasi height ko and weighing in at 82KG.. Parang BMX kasi tignan kapag gamit ko yung bike even if it has a 26" wheel. hehe!

nope hindi puwede palitan ng larger wheels designed kasi talaga yung frame and fork for 26" only.

btw alam ko may 29er din ang infinity, upgrade ka na lang.

vector X-10 - this was supposed to be my first MTB. Used it for about four long rides .

ok naman, kaya lang i opted for a 29er.

Sir baka maliit yung frame mo? Kung 6'1 ka, dapat sana 20 or 21 inches ang sukat ng frame mo. That way, hindi magmumukhang bmx yung MTB mo even at your height. Lumiliit talaga tingnan yung bike kapag sinasagad yung height ng seatpost, to compensate yung maliit na frame relative to our height.

elo sir!
generic lng un nkita ko sir. 500 php ata. Nsync b.u.m. 27.2. my travel ata na 2". heavy kc wetpaks ko at lubak lubak roads dto manila.
pros: alloy, cheap, comfortable at effective if u forgot to stand up, very good s lower back.
cons: 3times heavier s stock seatpost,cguro dhil s coil spring s loob
pero i dont mind, parang 1 ltr of water lng un considering the comfort it gives to me.
thanks

... is there someone here who has an "infinity atlas" frame at 5.8k lighter cya kaysa s infinity italia. can u give us some feedback. trail performance,fork travel recommendation?
thanks in advance!

@redstar1128: Thanks sa advice sir! Wala kasi talaga ako idea sa tamang pagpili ng sukat sa MTB before, maliban sa mga nababasa ko dito sa forum. Budget is also my #1 concern.. hehe! Kaya nung in-offer sa akin ni Kings yung Infinity for 10K as my entry level MTB eh kinuha ko na.. At ngayong na-hook na talaga ako dito eh yung next purchase ko will be more customized and fit na sa aken.

Next siguro na papalitan ko ay handle grip, dumudulas na kasi yung stock handle grip after almost 3 months of use.

Infinity (frame) bike user here.
ang natira na lang sa built bike dati is yung frame.
yung bike ko oks naman sa trail. bale sa fort boni mtb trail and aguinaldo lang.

IMHO. ok yung geometry niya. mas ok siya kesa dun sa Alite150 ko na binenta ko na din.

I suggest sticking to 100mm or lower travel, hirap ng 120mm sa steep climbs bigla na lang umaangat ang gulong sa unahan
