    Mga Brothers: Dahil sa gunban, kelangan humanap ng alternative recreational activity during weekends. Taurus and I got bitten by the bike itch and would like to ask other BoGs who are into mountain biking or Roadies where they get their gear.

    I plan to pass by all terra later this afternoon to check out their lines of mtb's.

    So maybe we can set-up a funride instead of a funshoot! :banana:

    would highly recommend All Terra Bike Shop in Club 650 Libis. the owner, Edmund, is very helpful to bikers. he used to be the manager of Powerbikes Rockwell.

    if you are a bit more adventurous, Kings in Quiapo (along Quezon Blvd. across Quipo Church) offers very low prices. the owner, Jane, used to be a roadie i think. magaling sa sales talk yan. (you'll know what i mean if you meet her.) usually mayroon silang valentine's day discount. :)

    sa cartimar side, the only shops i trust are paulinas and velocity (including the one beside velocity the name of which i forget).

    if i know what you intend to buy maybe we can narrow down the choices of shops. whole bike ba? parts only? accessories lang?

    mark: yup, kilala ko si washington ng newton multisales. puro high end bikes nga meron siya. got some parts for my old roadie from him.

    now, i'm looking for an MTB para maiba naman, but when i went to all terra kanina, sa mga road bikes talaga ako naglaway!

    was able to look at some entry level bikes. Giant, KHS and Jamis. price range is from 11500-1500, which are reasonable compared to US msrp's.

    ang ganda noong giant roadie going for 26k! tapos ganda ng mga giant tcr's! kaso out of my budget na! hiramin ko na lang yung mtb ni smbd or ni singlestacker! hahaha!

    I'm in love w/ roadbikes now kasi they are fast
    Closest thing to flying pag nasa open road and dito more on training and most of the guys here are intense
    Kaso always looking at a guys @$$ in front of me sa ride has awakened some deep feelings inside of me. Lalake na yata ang gusto ko ngayon hehe

    MTB I think ang bagay sa BOGS
    Whole body workout , mas relaxed ang attitude ,mas friendly ang mtbikers and ang pace nya tama pang kwentuhan
    Dami maganada puntahan na accessible sa mtb

    If you look at cycling as an exercise , tatamarin lang kayo
    Look at it as a hobby like ipsc meron group rides, pasyal , kwentuhan
    Mas enjoy pag ganun
    BTW, naunahan na kayo ng gunclub namin , simula pa lang ng gunban nagbilihan na ng mtb :)

    Ayos yan doc, kapag nabuo mo na yang bike mo mag-bike tayo papuntang armscor. :supergrin:

    Sa cartimar ka na lang maghanap. Ang mura lang sa newton yung shimano parts nila.
