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.
Haha.. alright I'll go with your advise then. but hmm.. as you mentioned "get a steel , no suspension bike with trigger shift/multi gear. Works better, lighter and faster."

Any to recommend ? or perhaps anyone selling such ?

Alvin, can try Giant Tampines, a lot of varieties over there.

Wah rao, talk about URATA, my bmx is really de heavy, can train muscles sial, slope is the killer.

Btw, just bought this dynamo flashlight, don't know if it fits to the bicycle or not. I've no cam phone so I take this pix from the net. This flashlight can be used to charge mobile phone. Alamak, crank for a few minutes, some paint come off the side. 8.50, cannot complain I guess.

It's aluminum right? If so, then just wielding would not regain the structure's strength. Need some special treatment after wielding to regain the strength. Don't think it will be cheap if available. Think better off getting a new frame.
My new hoot to replace the old frame.






Solid frame for that kind of selling price.

Just back from PCN trip to changi coast road.
Stuffs are all transferred from old bike except the seatpost due to different diameter and LX rear v -brake to second hand LX rear hydraulic with XT rotor.

Hardtail owners should seriously consider this frame if planning for frame replacement.
Low Centre of Gravity.
