Got see my post?? My choice is inclined towards Xtrada. 8-speed, not too bad parts. Think its the most value-for-$
yeah.. xtrada's not bad.. astroz in my opinion.. if you're rich then buy that.. cos the shocks.. are REALLY soft...suicide if you use it for jumps and stuff... even go down kerb might be dangerous if the kerb a little high.. most people i see with astroz(excluding the uncles at coffeeshops) they change their shocks to something else.. which would cost about 100$/++

well.. mine got stolen.. so am using hasa now

Stolen? tats like quite common..btw wat type of lock is the best? Seems like those big and thick metal chains like can easily cut also..

Is the Xtrada's shocks also soft? Thinking whether the Wheeler Pro19 2009 or Merida 40V will be better, but surely more ex..

Get those high grad stainless steel chain or U-lock. The heavier the better. All can be saw but good lock will take theives long time to saw it off and if u park at crowded location. They will hesitate to strike yr bike. If u use lock, pls use temble lock which is very hard to lock pick. Spring lock will be easier to lock pick.

hello peop. do you guy buy any air horns or bells on your bike?

sometimes road traffic so heavy. hard to cycle, cycle on pavement also cannot cycle fast...... cycle on road. the bus keep blocking my way also, sometimes constructionwork a bit dangerous to ride on road.

so do you guys install those air horns to notify cars on road that u are approaching ?

i read about the airzound airhorn but that comes witha little weird bottle. i know that u nid to refill the air if u run out of it... but necessary to mount the bottle? or just pump air when u run out of air like ur tyres? if nid to mount the bottle to use the airhorn.. i thinking of perhaps getting a bell or nothing at all.

hope someone can shed some light on this~
U honk them also useless. They will heck care u one. Most important is defensive riding, anticipate their move and situation awareness when riding in heavy traffic.

for me.. after my Astroz was stolen.. i didnt bother going bike shop get locks
i went to DIY shops.. or those hardware shops.. and bought 3 chains.. 2 long 1 medium length.. and 3 locks.. total about 120$(3 locks alone already 90+ lol)

heavy as hell.. but it does scares off the theives
cos i parked it outside bedok mrt(where my Astroz was stolen) left it there for 7 hours.. still intact

and in regards to the Xtrada's shocks.. im not sure myself.. havent actually rode one.. but since i saw someone used it to jump at tampines bike park.. should be hard enough la yep..

I don't know about the price of it sold at Carrefour, but my friend got one selling at the same brand bike outlet in the very big supermarket in Tampines which is almost $20 more than the one I got at a LBS. Exactly the same model. Unless they adjusted the price later.

the air horn is very loud...don't believe place your ear beside and horn. lol

it's so loud that it's only good for emergency use. anyhow horn people/vehicles will be very irritating cos it's almost as loud as car horn.
