    Maybe I will have better luck posting here. I tried the local forum and didn't get much luck.

    MGA KABAYAN in Texas: Anybody racing any of the TMBRA Fall Series? Fall Series Calendar: www.tmbra.org

    I'm sure there are plenty of mtb'ers in Texas. We are known to be competitive. Anybody else racing any Cat..... 3 to Pro ?

    Sup y'all.
    I just started reading this thread and I'm sure I will get to the first page eventually.
    I'd like to know if there is racing or DH racing series/scene in PI.
    Any links? Sites? Places to DH or accomodates Dhers (shuttle, a stretch -lifts?)?

    I live in San Diego now.
    Went to High School in Baguio (damn, now thinking about it, there has got to be a lot of DH trails or possibilities for DH trails up there).

    Any flips who ride DH in SD, let's hook up. We do lots of XC/trail riding too.

    DH Group at Power Plant Mall in Makati

    Hey Ozzer,

    I remember before I came here in LA, this bike shop that just opened at Power Plant Mall, just adjacent to Belair Makati has bunch of guys doin DH runs in Tagaytay. The bike shop is owned by Beaver Lopez, I just can't recall the name of it. Once you get back to PI, try hooking up with them...they tried to convince me, but DH is not me. I just do aggressive XC/Trail riding. Maybe when I visit my sister there in SD, she lives Santee...we can ride together and bring me where the nice trails are.

    I hate to think I'm a Lone Ranger racing in the TMBRA venue but seems like it is what it is.

    tnx. one of these days, I'll visit PI again.
    shoot me an email when you plan on visiting SD.
    there are some nice trails all over even closer to Santee.

    uhm, would someone be nice enough and spot me a member referral on the pinoymtber forum (registration requirement)? I just want to see pics of riding in PI.

    thanks.

    flip mode squad?

    Hey guys, how many are new to the sport? I've been riding off an on maybe 10 years, not counting bmx. About 5 years ago I had a pretty nasty fall, broken hand and some bad cuts. I didn't start riding again till a year ago and its been a slow process. I was ridding mainly hardtails, but now i've been riding a full suspension rig which has helped my confidence big time. Anyways lets schedule a ride, just tell me where and when!

    Salamat po
    (my tagalog sucks, sorry!)

    I am currently based here in Bowie, Maryland. Any of you Filipino cycling enthusiasts close to my area? Let me know.

    It does not matter what bike you ride as long as it handles well and can take the abuse. it is a good hobby, good exercise, have fun and enjoy! Bikes have their limitations, they only can do so much, a lot of the work has to come from you. So focus more on your skills as a cyclist.

    MOSSO is a known brand and I do not think they come cheap either.

    there was an article on it, it was given good ratings.

    here is a link:

    Again enjoy!

    New question here. i need help..



    hi. im from makati and just got me a mosso steel horse bike (full suspension). using suntour shocks, crankset, shimano changer, shimano acera.

    im having problems with my changer. ayaw kumagat minsan. pahirapan.
    also, anyone of you know a good priced dual suspension frame? ung jamis and da bomb na nakita ko sa cartimar costs 32k. frame pa lng un. medyo mabigat tlga. im really looking for a reasonable priced frame.

    here are the pics of my bike. it isnt much and i still have lots to replace.

    I need to replace the disc brakes. I had been offered b some shops to use MOB or Ballistic. I asked for Shimano and they said that center locks are the ones available. Meaning, I need to replace my entire wheel set. i didnt ask for the price though.

    help please!!

    Which derailleur, front or rear? Have you played with the adjustment screws? Again, is the bike (and the components -- namely the front chainrings and rear cassette) new? If it's (they're) not, it may be a problem of chainring/cog teeth/chain wear.

    Da Bomb is probably one of the lowest you can go without compromising quality. It's surprising Jamis has a FS frame in that price group. Any lower than that and you either have to go used or compromise the durability of the frame.

    I need to replace the disc brakes. I had been offered b some shops to use MOB or Ballistic. I asked for Shimano and they said that center locks are the ones available. Meaning, I need to replace my entire wheel set. i didnt ask for the price though.
    Is there a question here? What's wrong with the disc brakes?
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    its the rear derailleur. and i got the bike brand new. but since the store assembled the bike themselves, i wasnt able to really test it out.

    Is there a question here? What's wrong with the disc brakes?
    the plates arent aligned. as what the repairman had said, "umocho ung disc.maxado malake." I think he meant to say that the disc installed is bigger than what is needed.

    so are you saying that da bomb and jamis fs at 32k is priced reasonably? i mean, from elsewhere, they could be priced more?

    have you heard of frames called Santa Cruz? I saw one at Php6,500. I though of getting it as a replacement to my mosso steel horse.

    thanks for the advice.

    Check parts wear

    What I would do first is hang the bike on a stand then:
    - check if there is a pattern when chain or shifting skips, shift in middle ring in front then shift 1 cog at from high to low gears.
    - if it skips, shift to lg ring (ft), small cog (rear) & align derail using adj screws. Then shift to granny ring (ft), lg cog (rear) & align using adj screws. Then shift to middle ring (ft), middle cog (rear) & adj/turn cable tension in shift lever or derail until chain is in correct gear & no chain rub sound.
    - If not, check chain tension, if loose, adj derail tension screw by derail hanger (rear frame).
    - If not, chainring & cog teeth wear. If worn, replace them with new once.
    - Also check crank & bottom bracket if loose or have play then tighten on spec.
    - If skipping in ft chainrings, adj & align ft derail & make sure no chain rub on all 3 gears.

    If all fails, upgrade to a Shimano or SRAM drivetrain kit. MoBettah!

    Good luck & ride on!

    so are you saying that da bomb and jamis fs at 32k is priced reasonably? i mean, from elsewhere, they could be priced more?

    have you heard of frames called Santa Cruz? I saw one at Php6,500. I though of getting it as a replacement to my mosso steel horse.

    thanks for the advice.
    I would get the Santa Cruz frame, but check geometry specs of model & make sure it will work with your fork travel & all. Best is to buy a frame kit with fork & rear shox so geometry does'nt change on you.

    One other thing, if your lg chainring (ft) does not align with small cog (rear), you might need to remove or add spacers on your BB & crank to align them then adj your derail. to align each end of the rings/gears.

    Santa Cruz is a great bike. What kind do you have in mind? Blur, Nomad, V10, Jackal?

    If you have the time, bring the bike back to the store. They SHOULD help you out in fixing any issues you have with the set-up. That SHOULD be part of their service to you as a customer.

    Disc? I thought the problem was with shifting?
    Didn't the mechanic give advice on how to fix it? If not, scrap my advice above and go look for another bike shop that cares more for their customers.

    Those prices are likely representative of average market prices. You did mention Cartimar, and they have some of the best prices anywhere.

    P6.5k for a Santa Cruz frame???!!! FS??? That's an imitation. The least expensive Santa Cruz frame is the rigid Chameleon w/c retails for USD599 (just under P30k).
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    I really didnt know there could be imitation frames. at one point, it did look authentic and it looked good. the weldings seem to be ok. it was the santa cruz superlight.

    Thanks for all the help!!

    The cheapest "real" FS frame in Manila will probably be KHS XC104. My advice, though, would be that if you're really on a budget you're better off going with a hardtail and upgrading drive train first. Most of us started with hardtails, and there is nothing wrong with them. Cheap FS bikes tend to be heavy, the rear shocks are not of good quality and the suspension design is usually inefficient, which means a lot of the power you put in goes to bouncing the bike up and down instead of pushing it forward.

    Whatever you do, don't get conned into buying one of those fake FS frames that you'll see around Quiapo and Cartimar... especially the infamous Sta Cruz superlight fakes, which have earned a reputation for catastrophic failure under stress (meaning they fall apart when you ride them).

    For a brake upgrade without dealing with centerlock, try Avid BB7.

    Keep an eye an the buy and sell pages at pinoymtbiker.org, lots of stuff comes up there at good prices.

    Shifting issues can often be resolved by minor adjustments to cable tension, etc. Take it to a bike mechanic and have it tuned, it's cheap and most good wrenches will show you what they are doing and help you learn to do it yourself.

    that's cool

    Wish we have those kinda trail. But be rest assured the beaches here in Palawan are more beautiful than yours there. Anyone from Palawan there? Are you guys familiar with maharlika cycling club? i kinda mistakenly thought that MCC is philippine based so i jumped the gun and registered but i soon realized that it is not based in the phils coz nobody seemsed to care about my post re: palawan mtbiking. Thanks for your reply.

    also, anyone of you know a good priced dual suspension frame? ung jamis and da bomb na nakita ko sa cartimar costs 32k. frame pa lng un. medyo mabigat tlga. im really looking for a reasonable priced frame.

    here are the pics of my bike. it isnt much and i still have lots to replace.

    I need to replace the disc brakes. I had been offered b some shops to use MOB or Ballistic. I asked for Shimano and they said that center locks are the ones available. Meaning, I need to replace my entire wheel set. i didnt ask for the price though.

    help please!!

    salamat po.
    Ano ang diperensya ng disk brakes mo?
    Mukhang maayos pa naman ha?
    Bakit gusto mong palitan?

    ok naman ang bosso... este! mosso.
    They do not come cheap.

    Any dual suspension frame for that matter

    They had reviews done on the MOSSO.

    nuj, yep that's Pong. Our trail guide that day... I'll tell him...

    garcied, trail head is paseo de sta rosa... there are a number of entry points actually, but more often its via wedge wood through the cardiac hill after say, 15mins uphill pedaling... a local bike shop at paseo (SABAK) offers rental bikes (full sus to hard tail), well tuned and trail worthy ones at very enticing rates...

    samibismojo, mjcort27, thanks!
