I be locking it outside my HDB, but if buy expensive afrid kena stolen heart pain. If buy the cheap without suspension fork, then if i go long distant then vey siong haha not comfortable leh. If i can put inside my house, i consider buy a $300 something one if ma allow haha. But i know she wont allow that.

    Mountain biking was my first love. It was mountain biking that got me excited about motorbikes eventually!

    Well, I was at the bicycle shop at Queens Road (Hon Kah Trading) [It's located near St. Margaret Sec Sch]. I believe they do sell good bicycles with suspension forks that cost less than $300..

    Do check it out there! I bought my Shimano mountain bike from there! They are really trustworthy!
    Biking is something that everyone can learn and enjoy!

    My friend told me he spent a total of $3000 on his mountain bike. Shimano hand-grip gear changer, expensive suspension setups, light aluminium frame, tyres, etc...

    He did list lots of stuff that he had changed; I could just sit there in awe thinking what I could do with that sum of money...

    FYI: Learnt that those suspensions fitted on those budget mountain bikes aren't as effective as those expensive ones mentioned by my friend. His suspension setup mirrors the comfort and shock absorbancy of a real motorcycle. Whoa...

    Dun think you need to get those cos helmet not so heavy. Maybe can get the cubes instead, then can keep the helmets from gathering too much dust

    many many bike shops.. can go hup leong near chinatown.. or mezzo at geylang lor 25..

    the costly parts of a bike, depends.. but most of the time is the frame, fork and wheels..

    my set of wheels cost me more than my fork.. 1.2k for the wheels..

    Sometimes, you gotta have a lil enjoyment on a bicycle -- trail-riding, a lil road, and lotsa leg power.

    (More like enjoyment - a lot of it, on a mountain bike )

    alike motor riders, cyclists who cycle for passion are willing to spend on their machines....who doesnt want the best piece of equipment and gear on them...as an avid cyclist, although i still believe in technology gears, i still think that its the cyclist that matters..expensive gears and lightweight body frames aren't worth the buy if the human engine cant produce and sufficient long lasting energy and stamina...just like motorbikes where a superbike with zero skilled riders are just plain commuters....

    not normal. diff discipline diff price range.

    MTB 1.2k is considered top range already, and every thing is customized and easily replaceable.

    'lightweight' wheels, 1 crash that's it! hello new wheels! and they are road racing wheels for the matter. nobody will use it for training use anyway..

    people spent more on bicycle den bikes?
    To ride on the road, You need skills,Stamina, or even luck.

    But to be a good rider, you have to change with your environment,and adjust yourself to its rhythm.

    Cultivate the confidence to face the different situations. Don't let yourself to be subdued by the environment

    ... Woah. A Kona Cove! Hows that for exclusivity?

    anyways TS, if you have yet to decide on a MTB discipline, try getting a GT Avalanche 1.0 first, and slowly upgrade from there. Its a good starter bike.

    Its one of those exclusive bikes after all...

    Ellsworth is one of them exclusives too... but i personally find their price tags a little TOO exclusive.

    I suppose you perfer DJ rather than XC huh?

    Before NS i liked going XC at bukit timah. At times i get so lazy i just whack with road tires, pushing up my bike each and every slope if inertia didnt permit me to just glide up.

    After i got into my unit my bike turned into a sort of road/mtb hybrid, to tranport me to and fro my camp. Cycling from taman jurong to pioneer sector 2 every day really helped. the smoke and whatnots didnt.

    Ever since i got my motorcycle ive been really slacking off. really want to hit the trail again sometime soon though. And i dont feel like changing my current bike format.

    TS, a nice community for you to look around in might be http://www.togoparts.com though you might find some of them a little eletist for those who got sub 1k bikes.

    Reviving an old thread?

    I just went Pulau Ubin first time on Friday with my friends. First time cycling in a long time and went to trails already. Was really fun, but tough, leg cramp and stuff, still managed to get through some blue squares and one black diamond. A lot pushing instead of riding =S. Was digging to see if anyone else did MTB Don't know if I can commit to that but gonna try to go another time before I go to the neighbouring island in few months time.

    Any tips from the more experienced?
    My ass has been hurting literally, after the ride. The two bones directly under, I think I never really stand when I go over the bumps end up the seat hit my ass. :B
    $10 rental bike from Ubin good enough right? I think it only has front suspension but seemed to work not bad, though the chain fell out of the gear and had to put it back onto the sprocket... No idea why too.

    The tights keeps the balls out of the way. Then you start investing in a jar of vaseline. Then you start shaving off your leg hair. And so forth.

    My 2c, before the tights, please get a helmet. Them helmets are affordable nowadays.

    I always tell my friends who own expensive MTB that my motorbike costs less than half their bicycles but can go at least 10 times faster.
