riding with a helmet is more dangerous.

read somewhere tat when u wear helmet, motorists feel u are more exp in cycling so they drive closer to u
however if u dun wear they would feel u are reckless and tend to keep their distance so its safer.

What an oxy-moron theory.

When you drive car with a P-Plate, people instead give way to you, bully you.

good actually for grabbing bargains. But of course, many of these who do not post the price may only be testing water.

Many reasons for selling: bike not suitable, size not suitable, dun like the feel, spent too much and now need to divert the $$$ elsewhere, other $$$ commitments, changing to something else,
etc.

all the $ reason imos are invalid.. if they willing to spend tat much on the bike in the 1st place means they already have a fair understanding of the upkeeping cost..

guy can i consult here regardin... which is a better buy

GT Avalanche 1.0 2008 Disc VS KONA Cinder Cone 2008 ?



Pls advise...
Alot of people say you must like the frame first. I guess these 2 models are within your budget. If possible borrow from a friend or go LBS to demo the bike before deciding.
