New on here, and new on Mountain Biking
Hello - good day to you all!
I have been riding (borrowing my cousin's) SGM - it's really cheap, and a bit fair on riding, considering I've ridden better MTBs. With all these fun adventures, I decided to go serious on MTBing.
I'm a starter on MTBing, and I'd like some inputs on whether this frame is a fake or not: Bnew Specialized S-Works Mountain Bike Philippines - 14392873
They're a local seller, where I'm from - and as far as I can see, it looks good (and sadly, I can't spot if it's fake or not). They sell them for really cheap - and I would only guess why they're cheap (besides from the frame that would be "original") is because the parts are cheap or generic.
Also, if ever that this is a no-no - what about this one: Sale...Bnew Gt Avalanche 3.0 Mountain Bike Philippines - 13467354
If both are no-good, I'd really appreciate advice on where to buy - I'm from Philippines, Manila.
Again, just starting - I would really love some advice on maintaining and fixing my bike whenever I need to do so.
Thanks for your inputs!
I don't know what companies sell overseas compared to here in the U.S. but that specialized looks fake to me, the gt looks a little less fake.
I ride with a lot of Filipino guys and I am a aware that the mountain biking scene is really growing over there. See if you can find some local guys to hook up with and maybe get some advice on some reputable shops to purchase from. I would stay far away from who ever is selling that specialized. You can also find some info in the PI forum. Here's some shops listed in your area.
g c cyclist
Bike One - They have everything under one roof. Prices are also good.
Extreme - Mixed reviews on this shop.
Will check them out! Thanks so much! ^_^
Whatever gets you through the night!
