Bike muna habang gun ban

Mga fafi,

Dito ko tinanong sa bogs at baka sa sobrang dami ng suggestions sa pmtb lalo ako malito

anyways, I'm thinking ( pa lang ) of building an mtb
26inch wheels
preferably w/ 4-5 inch travel front and rear suspension, coil rear shock
Slack frame geometry
diore drivetrain
ok lang kahit generic parts yung hindi importante
Kasi I'm hoping it would not cost more than 60k
any suggestions?

Medyo out of circulation na rin ako sa cycling but how about built bike either Merida or Giant?

yup - promise ko sa sarili ko. I shall ride after the holidays
pero meron akong konting takbo para hindi tumaba masyado

Tama din si Fafa Paul - ok din mga 2nd hand from guys who change bike like they change underwear

para maenganyo ka:

Naisip ko rin nga kung 60k amount baka kulang ng konti for an all terrain bike

Fafa, puede ka rin mag buo ng 29er na di aabutin ng P60T
If your drivetrain is Deore-kaya.

Fafa,
Naisip ko nga din mag 29 pero I decided on the traditional 26 kasi I'm planning to use it mag ikot probinsya ( hopefully marinduque/mindoro/romblon )
I'm not sure how available ang mga 29 sa mga liblib na lugar

My old bike still works pala
Cranks need to be changed
Kaso yung frame diamondback pa haha

looks like i have to increase the budget
You cant build an all mountain w/ a budget of 60k
Problem , looked at all the stores for trance and reign frames , wala makuhang large
Looking at this -
Band of Glockers
yung frame at tinidor lang ha not the components
Problema it's a 29

Anyone here ride a 29? mas ok ba?
I'm worried about wheel parts availability sa probinsya

...ala eh Fafa, kaya pala di kaya ng P60T-full sus na Niner ang tinatarget mo. Frame alone may cost you 80-135T.

Should you decide on Niner, try their stores at Molito or at Westgate. Hihingi kita ng additional discount. Major owner is like a son to me.

29...29...rah rah rah.
29...29...sis bumba.

22lbs , parang roadbike yan a, ang gaan
At my weight and the terrain sa backyard volcano namin , di ako pwede sa lightweight bike
Parati bali sakin ang rayos, and tires have to be more than 40psi or nafafflat
My old mtb weighted 40lbs hehe

anyone here from marinduque or mindoro?
Safe ba mag bike around the island?

I asked a couple of weeks ago sir Allegra. Giant Trance X 2 29er i think. 80k was the price. built bike. of course not XTR compo and other high end. was planning to get Giant Trance X 1 29er para gunban pa sexy, price was 115k if i remember correctly hahahah.

But right now, i have my eyes on the Specialized Stumpy or Epic
