    22lbs , parang roadbike yan a, ang gaan
    At my weight and the terrain sa backyard volcano namin , di ako pwede sa lightweight bike
    Parati bali sakin ang rayos, and tires have to be more than 40psi or nafafflat
    My old mtb weighted 40lbs hehe

    anyone here from marinduque or mindoro?
    Safe ba mag bike around the island?

    I asked a couple of weeks ago sir Allegra. Giant Trance X 2 29er i think. 80k was the price. built bike. of course not XTR compo and other high end. was planning to get Giant Trance X 1 29er para gunban pa sexy, price was 115k if i remember correctly:) hahahah.

    But right now, i have my eyes on the Specialized Stumpy or Epic :)

    I've looked all over for a large reign/trance from cartimar , lifecycles etc
    Wala, puro medium at small
    Found the Niner sa alabang , pinaestimate ko aabot ng 200k! ( xt gruppo )
    to think my original plan was to get a 20k hardtail hehe
    punta muna ako gay bar , magbebenta muna ako ng aliw

    Gusto ko kasi all mountain frame pards
    5 or 6 inch travel
    If I can get an all mountain frame na large I'd prefer a 26 though
    Since wala makuha , baka mag 29
    Di pako maka decide
    Ride muna ng ride :)

    still biking.

    we did a manila to mindanao RORO trip, bikes on car rack, occasionally stopping and biking to explore trails.

    went through batangas, mindoro, iloilo, bacolod, dumaguete, dapitan, cotabato, and then davao.

    most harrowing was 18km rough road stretch through some mountainous area of zanorte, napasubo talaga kami, the roads started out asphalted pero sa entrada lang pala.



    distance covered on land combined bike and car about 1250kms (on bike alone mga 350kms lang), distance covered by boat about 220kms, total weight lost == 0 lbs. we eat like starved hogs, sampling what's good in every town we visit. the paklay in in a town before dumaguete is just fantastic!

    ROROs when full are a pain in the A

    oh yeah, we toyed with the idea of doing bikes all the way but we decided to bring a support vehicle, we're not that fit. hehe

    yeah pag puno ang boat, sorry wait for the next one, and ang gulo ng systema...after batangas pier (which was convenient and very systematic) be ready for a most confusing experience as you go to a different office to pay arastre, then coastguard, then the boat fare, and the haphazard way they load you into the boats.

    The last time nag roro ako , some misguided soul wrapped a 5inch nail in cloth and stuck it under my wheel
    Pag akyat sa taas , all the people where sleeping on the benches walang maupuan
    Buti nalang they move pag siniksik mo
    Some of my friends slept inside their cars down below w/ the engine and a/c open
    Curious ako if they'd get monoxide poisoning pero hindi naman
