Just got into a new hobby. The wife decided we needed an alternative healthy pastime and so we got into mountainbikes! The local community pala is very active and trails for all skill levels are very accessible within reasonable traveltime from Metro Manila. It's also very good aerobic, non-impact exercise so the hobby is sustainable even for the older bunch. We decided to go for quality, pre-built trail bikes for our starter kit and slowly upgrade as our skill level progresses. I got a Jamis Dakar XC full suspension and the wife got a Marin Bobcat hardtail. Both got very good reviews on the net stating that these were being marketed as "entry-level trail ready" but are good enough to be used in even expert trails.

Anybody here into the same hobby?

I also got into mountain biking last month together with my high school/college buddies. I have a Merida TFS 500 hardtail. The trails that I have ridden are Maarat in San Mateo, La Mesa (although i think its still closed due to training of their staff).

I have yet to try Sta Rosa and the others.

There's a Tour of the Fireflies this April 20. Its a 41 km ride around Metro Manila.

See you in the trails

Yup yup
My mtb is probably 5 years old na yata :) Diamondback frame ( bankrupt na hehe ), Marz Z1 forks , deore comps and various generic parts
I've been downgrading lately haha ayaw masira ng frame and fork

Sta rosa is a mtb town, dami trails from malacanang sa canlubang to Tags and down again to silang and sta rosa
Dami rin mayayabang hehe I suggest a good armbar agad

Welcome to the MTB world! Give it time and you will soon contract this quirky biker malady called "UPGRADE-ITIS". Ha-ha.

Kung sabagay, sakit din ito ng maraming shooters.

First got a mountain bike, then when I started joining duathlons (sprint lang naman), lugi ako, sa got a road bike, he he.

You should try long distance road bike too Bikethiek. Very relaxing.

Joining organized bike rides (like Bike for Hope or Tour of the Fireflies) is most fun.

Seriously , if weight loss ang goal mo sa biking , hindi ka tatagal tatamarin ka agad
Dapat enjoy riding a bike sa trails ang goal, yung pasyal , yung barkada
Magugulat ka nalang sa mirror , pumapayat ka ( at kulay aspalto na rin )

Yes kayang kaya yan - just don't get the ultra light bikes. To start have a check up with a doctor if he gives you a green light to exercise get a good fitting bike (doesn't mean expensive - just one simple bike that fits you well) then ride it and ride some more. Yes you can lose weight but it depends still on your eating habits but one thing is for sure - you will feel better after a few weeks of biking. One thing with cycling is it is non impact so less chances of getting injured.

Oh yeah one thing with exercising your appetite might increase a few days to a week after starting but in the long run exercising is an appetite suppressant

Daming bago every year
I got my friends 17t na Merida hardtails last year
It's not the cheapest pero sakin maganda na sya ( equivalent sa MAP1 hehe )

Dont ride the trails much ngayon kasi busy sa triathlon
Pero go to a good bikeshop sigurado they have a group who rides parati

you can get a built bike for around 13k - jamis brand or build your own around 11k. I agree with allegra - don't do hills and climbs first - hirap lang abot mo niyan - enjoy the sport first puro patag and good roads muna. 30-45 min a day would be fine.

road bikes are the racers - the ones you see in tour de france or warlboro tour/ tour de pilipinas befores - thin tires and handle bars that look like sheep horns :)
mtb - straight bar some with shocks infront and or rear back. Thicker tires and usually with studs.

for city use: hardtail, rigid fork and slick tires or check out the built bikes (jamis or giant) for commuters. To keep the price down no need for disc brakes - nice to have but not needed for city use. Budget around 15k

puwede ba gawa tayo ng beginners ride - kahit sa La Mesa damn sobrang ganda daw and you have a guide pa. Gastos lang ng konti -1k for the guide up to 5 riders max. More riders more guides lang.
What do you guys say?? Tama na muna yung shooting mahal na bala bike naman tayo :supergrin:

06-16-2008, 17:02
Thanks mga pre! It is not really your hardcore downhill rig. It is something in between a cross country bike and a downhill specific one. If I am not mistaken it is an all terrain thing.

Left mountian biking when I noticed that riders are getting younger, more adventurous, daring and spectacular in their riding while I started to feel the pain hehehehehehehehe.

I would really love to go back but would need some barkada to ride along with. This time I need to go biking to get fit unlike before which is to get some thrills thats why it is boring for me now and need an added push:supergrin:

See you around the tracks soon (in my case probably around CCP center and MOA during mornings hehehehehe).

Binoy,

Your bike is also a cross breed of sorts with mountain breeding but slick tires for ease of use along the paved roads. Wag mo na benta lets ride together on weekends punta ka CCP kita tayo sa may harbour view tapos heavy breakfast tayo dun hehehehehe.

Ayain mo na rin si Captain Barbel mukhang kailangan na rin nun ng exercise. Wag lang si Tigra and Judge at talagang namumuhunan yun sa mga tyan nila nyahahahahaha.

It depends - from 3k and above. Depends on where you want to put it. roof or spare tire or trunk or inside the vehicle.
Check out life cycle naman they are the distributors of hollywood racks and then jump over to Thule located across diamond motors. But be warned mahal sa thule :)

to add: Sir Wp.22, I suggest you get a spare inner tube, tire levers and a small pump when you get your helmet. Flats are pretty common especially during rainy season. When you buy the items I suggested to have the mechanic teach you how to use it. Don't be shy to ask - lahat tayo nagsisimula sa ganyan.

tama yung straight for both mtb and road pero hindi diretsong diretso. Try pedaling for a few minutes then place your heel on the pedal (while on the bike and bike is running). Your leg should be straight or near straight. When you put back your foot on the right position there should be a bit of a bend. This will eliminate your hip rocking side ways too (too much extension)

Some of the guys at our gun club already has started riding every morning , kwentuhan/breakfast ride
Like shooting , mas masaya pag barkadahan

Ever since I started riding years ago , laki na ng natipid ko
Not just because it's cheaper than ipsc , or sa tipid sa gas
Tipid din sa damit, all I wear everyday is shorts at tshirt hehe
Tipid sa relos , it's a p2500 heart rate monitor
Tipid sa gimik , kasi maaga ang tulog

Plus riding thru La Mesa Park or the Bataan killer Loop, or bombing down the rock gardens ng Makiling or crisscrossing Sagada makes you realize you dont need a lot of money to have this much fun or satisfaction
Bigyan nga ng bisikleta mga taong gobyerno

try greenhills center muna - ikot ikot lang for a couple of weeks. Early morning so that there aren't cars pa. Then when you get bored take those hilly rides. If you don't mind the traffic take wilson, ortigas go to QC up to Channel 2 then back.

flat din sa moa - anong araw ninyo gusto - pero dapat maaga para hindi tayo mahassle ng traffic or speeding buses

old school these days but does the job. cant off road any longer but provides a plush ride on the road with firm road tires.

great sport great for fitness while having fun great way to see nature. pack emergency kit / tool kit with replacement tubes and fire making needs in your hydration pack in case you spend the night on the mountain or break a leg. Use buddy system.

Bro, newly opened yan. Country distributor of giant bikes. They have entry mtb and road bikes too. This is the shop inside the shopping complex near the ramp leading to east greenhills.

Sir 3kings,
Good yan! kung malapit lang naman puntahan bike nalang tipid sa gas liliit pa tiyan :). Serious ako happy ako na meron ako ma-influence magbike. This sport is truly my passsion. Kaya nawala hilig ko sa shooting (well aside from the hassles done by Ping and GMA).

It's an 08 Haro X7. All-mountain ang config niya meaning it's beefier than XC (cross-country) but still light enough to be pedalled uphill. It's also not as hard-core as dedicated downhill bikes but it can handle most of the DH courses here in the Philippines.

pot, i think this is possible. theory lang to ha. what you do is you dont plan your ride. you just ride on a whim. parang isang araw me panahon ka tapos wala kang magawa......ride!

ang theory is if you plan you brace yourself for the ride. if you dont plan you dont brace yourself. so mas "loose" ka. mas relax.

try it. if it works post mo dito. good luck hehehehe.

one more thing. papunta ka you set variable destinations. parang kung baga dun kalang muna sa malapit, kung kaya pa then dagdagan mo konti, kung kaya pa dagdag ulit, and so on and so forth.
