Hi guys! I'm a newbie here... would like to know how to choose a 29er mtb. I have two choice... trinx m189 29er or giant revel 2. please help me out. got 15k for budget but I can extend a little. thanks!
err...ano exactly yung hinahanap mo sa bike na yan?
it's a built bike, you pretty much can't change anything unless pumayag yung may-ari ng shop na mag swap out ng parts. If you're asking kung okey ang setup, galing na sa GT yan mismo, I'm pretty sure they did their research in putting the bike together.
I mean sir if this bike is good enough for newbies like me? matibay po ba mga parts nyan and is it a good buy? 20k po more or less ang price nya... or baka may mairerecommend po kayo na good bike shop in manila... pasensya na sir ha medyo madami akong tanong
Quick question, are you limited by those two options only?
again, you pretty much can't do anything since it's a built bike. 2 quirks i have with the revel are the derailleurs and the brakes. the Revel should be cheaper, heck you're getting entry level drivetrain there. you might also find it difficult to find replacement brake pads.
It looks like the GT Avalanche was a 2015 model on sale. You may want to look at other bike shops that might have similar deals for older models. Just ask what's on sale. I once saw a 2015 Trek full suspension bike for 80k only at BGC. Of course that did not last long. Ask around if you really want a deal like the GT one.
yup I will... thank you very much for the suggestions! hirap ng konti budget. will go to kamuning tomorrow for gt timberline, cannondale trail 7, I think... and norco storm. sana may sale. thanks again sirs!
stealthwanderer: Ayan yung matagal ko na gusto itanong: 1 Hour ride, mabasa ng ulan o' mabasa ng pawis sa loob ng kapote. Baka kasi ako lang nageenjoy sa ulan kasi may paliguan pagdating sa trabaho, hahah.

anthrax76: sa ngayon, mag jacket lang ako kapag umuulan at mahangin. kasi masakit sa balat ang matulin na ulan tsaka malakas makababa ng core temperature ang wind chill.

anthrax76: pero kung normal na ulan, 'di naman mahangin, hanggang mabasa na lang ako ng ulan okey lang. although i minimize kung gano katagal ako exposed. anything more than an hour, medyo delikado.

konablack: gamit ko two-piece raincoat, dehins lang sya ideal kung may backpack ka

oniechan: altered poncho..dahil ng backpack..bawas ng haba sa likod at sa side..mas malamig compared sa 2-pc na raincoat....

anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.

anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.

lefty: Na experience nyo na sir yung pagbaba mo ng mabilis sa tulay biglang may malakas na crosswind tapos umangat yung front wheel? Nangyari na sa kin once pagbaba ko ng Southpeak. Mga March yun last year, mahangin talaga around that time last year.
Aug 24, 2019 8:50:45 GMT 8
lefty: Umangat ng konti na parang tinulak ng konti pa-side. Buti na control ko at di ako sumemplang. Nangyayari ba talaga ito normally? First time ko naka-experience nun.
Aug 24, 2019 8:56:30 GMT 8
anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.

stealthwanderer: Hello! Meron bang pumapasok around Greenhills? If so, saan kayo nagpapark ng bike?
Aug 27, 2019 17:54:27 GMT 8
anthrax76: @cf!!! uy kumusta na?
Aug 28, 2019 0:01:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: stealthwanderer, dati may parking ang bikes dun from firefly brigade, sa parking sa harap. pero ginawa na yata yun so dehins ko alam kung saan nalipat. try ko magtanong minsan kapag napasyal ako.
