mavic 717 are very good . If u dont do offroading and dont fly down stairs then get those thick(forgot whats the thickness) slick tyres.
Vee brakes ar. Tektro? Although i'm using shimanos for my hybrid.



Welcome to cycling
Thank you for the reply,I suppose I need to get a new hub as well?Anything other items I should need to get?Thank you.

Hmm for now i guess ur still new so can get grips,seat?
Hub i think ask for reccomendations from the people manning the shop ur going too.

Try to source for 2nd hand parts for things like handlebar/stem/seatposts if your on a budget. Of coz check b4 viewing .

Maybe can get deore groupset if you go extra cash to burn to make shifting slightly better than stock.

Thanks tecnica,assuming I change all those stuff,any other stuff that I need to budget for?Like deraileur or fork or anything?That is on the premise that I am upgrading to disc brakes in the future when I decide to go offroad.As before,thank you for your reply.

u need to check whether ur fork and frame is disc ready, that is does the fork and frame have disc tabs..

if there is no disc tab u cant install disc brake, although i knew there are disc adapter ard..

assuming ur fork and frame already have disc tabs, u need to get disc hubs for ur wheelset in order to mount the rotors

so in short:

fork/frame: to mount disc caliper
wheelset: to mount rotor

both essential for a disc brake system.. hydraulic or mechanical, tats another discussion altgt when u decide to go for disc brake

OR! to save all the trouble and still assuming ur fork and frame is disc ready! u can up ur brake budget to $250~ and get Avid BB7 mechanical disc calipers coupled with Avid SD7 brake levers, then hoot 2x centrelock rotorsl

ur bike will be trail worthy in days to come~

hello hello thanks for quick reply!
i don't think i will be going for competition. if i wanna get a hybrid . my MTB must be hard tail + will be still heavier in whatever way. which is a no-no for me in mtbiking. how ah? my MTB max speed is only 51km/h. i wanna go higher to maybe 70 , possible to do it with a road bike? advisable to get a road bike for a person like me?

max speed 51km/h can maintain how long ? my max is 56.3km/h but can't maintain. go fast no use if you can't maintain.
