Cool. Thanks guys for the recomendations. I think I'll go for the XT brakes for now. Maybe next time when I strike 4D will get a Formula brake set.

Welcome! XTR chain ah.. I think should be ok as long as you do proper maintenance.


It doesn't come in white Only in black or polished silver.
thanks for the advice!

ya... bro i recommend go L&T Cycle at Tampines hor... to try the helmet out...

recommend Matrix , FOX or MET.

all these 3 brands.. usually wun go wrong.. as for budget, set aside at least 100... a good helmet goes a long long way... good investment for protection... in some event it might even save ur life.... most impt is fit ... no pressure point.

hope that helps!

of course can also try chapter 2 cycle at AMK. but always so crowded. they also not keen on entertaining u unless u really tell them u wanna buy.... then they bother to serve u. else u probably will end up looking urself... but range wise, L&T got more than C2C if i am not wrong =]

Thanks for the recommendation.

FYI, I've got my electronic speed reader at the bicycle shop along Yio Chu Kang. Free installation. Friendly and jovial service.

Hi there bros !

Need some recommendations here...

Currently wanting to get a nice Mountain Bike budget less than $200, any recommendations ?

Lost touch a lot on the brands of the accessories / parts etc ever since my young days.

I don't mind a 2nd hand and also I'd very much like to go for a full suspension one.

I'd really appreciate if any could enlighten me here

Cheers

For $200 bucks, u want to get full suspension? Go Carrefour and look at those alecca brand or any neighbourhood bic shop for those mushroom brand like Hercules, Dura, ST or Momoki.

But I serious advise against for $200, not worth getting full suspension one. Cos those suspension are for show only. It will not work well and add up the weight of yr bic. Those are cheap full suspension. For that money, I rather get a steel , no suspension bike with trigger shift/multi gear. Works better, lighter and faster.

To get a decent full suspension bic. U need to pay at least $1k. Even second hand one will not be cheap.

If u intend to go off road with that $200 bic, I will say a big 'No'. I afraid either the bike will KO or u will KO. U think those people spend few K for off road ride for show off only? No, cos it really works.

If u just intend ti stay on road and pavement. $200 is ok.
