    magsuot ka rin ng proper mountain bike shorts, yong may padding sa tapat ng betlog...para di sumakit at mamaga puwet mo. lalo na at very basic setup ng bike na pasok sa budget mo. kumbaga, pansamantala lang yan since madali masira piyesa nyan, mabigat, matagtag...at madali mo lang pagsasawaan pag hindi ka hiyang
    bagay lang yang ganyang bike kung paminsan-minsan lang at for short period ka lang mag-bike, at kung hindi ka talaga mahilig sa mountain biking.

    buhayin ko lang itong thread. i just got my mountain bike a few days ako. cross-country ang setup. still undergoing restoration. when i got the bike, its in a very bad state. walang deraileurs, gewang ang mga gulong, walang preno, bad bottom brackets, worst of it, didn't like the color... though on a closer look, the parts, well i got shimano hubs(front/rear), shimano alivio rapid fire/brake lever, 7 speed freewheels, triple plate sprockets(plato) and crankset, Lizzard V-Brakes, Maxxis Mobster 2.7 for the front and WTB tires 2.1 for the rear, double-wall rims, MOB saddle, suntour front shocks and odyssey pedals. all for 3 thousand pesos. what i did is that restore the the roller- bought shimano acera, restored the alignment of the wheels on front and rear, replaced the saddle WTB, bought cables for front and rear deraileurs, new set of brake shoes, cables, new handle grips, drive chains. planning to buy new sets of rims, disc ready hubs, new tires.

    actually, something to look forward to during my weekends- even after office to unwind... na-mpluwesyahan ako ng brother ko, na may freeride na MTB...

    If you're not going to hit any serious XC trail there's no need to get disc brakes.

    actually, medyo malapit ko na palitan yung rims saka yung hubs kaya naisip ko magkabit ng discs. i still might want to consider hitting XC trailing after my project's done.

    2.7 tires are too much for xc lang. 2.1 is just right, dont be influence by your bro's FR bike if you're not into freeriding, they're both different disciplines
    fyi your suntour wont make it past 3ft drops but its good enough for xc riding

    you're right in getting a diskbrake ready hubs, this will save you money when you've decided to get diskbrakes soon. take note of the rims thats you're getting, they might be for diskbrakes only...mapipilitan ka magdiskbrake nyan hehe

    if you're done with your project pm me, we're always on the trails on weekends goodluck!

    for beginners punta muna kayo sa cartimar, for strolling along hindi naman kailangan dual suspension, a hard tail will do, also they are different sizes ng frame in accr\ordance to your height, lenght of legs etc etc...
