Hi all sifus, need advice where to get a budget folding bike in pj or kl. I am planning to goto work daily by taking KTM. From KTM to office need to walk about 40mins! So I'm thinking to own a folding bike.

1) Will there be any problem getting in KTM with the folding bike?
2) please advise me the models that around budget RM1K-1.4K.
3) where to get a budget folding bike in pj or kl.

many thanks!

I saw your bike the other day. It can be upgraded to double crank, why not? You just need adapters for the FD. I got a friend who even upgraded his Kalaq to double cranks. Here's another Dahon Eco C7 for sale. tongue.gif

http://www.mudah.my/Dahon+eco+c7-22234802.htm

P/S. You have to used FSA cranks specifically. There are Shimano Sora or Tiagra and from Shimano there are even the 2000 series which is even much cheaper. The reason why we upgrade is because we want more range in the gear inches but if you are going to change FSA single for the original, there's no advantage except for the weight which I don't think is important for your Ugo.

if i wanted to upgrade my java fit to this :

Your current Front 2 cranksets got how many teeth?

My current I think is 52/39 if not wrong

Oh, but you are looking at FSA with 53/39 which is almost identical to your current 52/39t.

If you upgrade, there will only be just a slight difference in gear ratios unless you are looking at reducing the weight of the current crank,  apart from the "garang" looks of the FSA.. smile.gif

No, actually is upgrade to 56-46 tongue.gif

It might be a square tapered one and you don't have to change the BB as well. The rest can be used provided that your cranks are not abused. If it was used for too long the chain might need to be changed but this comes only after fitting and see if there's chain slip. Looks like a nice crank and rings too.
*
but my current chain capable to fit that ? because looks like the ratio go bigger then the chain need longer right ? I not sure, correct me if i'm wrong.... and i quite confuse with different chain size like for gear 9 or 10.... so in my case i remain on gear 8 chain but front crank change from 52 to 56. So chain can reuse bk ? tongue.gif

From China worr! What happens if arrives here, it is different. It's a good buy if what they describe is as it is. I have look at your Ugo the other day and I am sure the FD can be done but then again it not worth your while to upgrade, might as well get a better buy. Thing is, your prospective future purchase is also an 8 speeder only worr, no double crank. hmm.gif

I think you should check for Hasa Minimax in Bicycle Buy Sell. I think there's still another one, trying to sell for RM1.3K. Maybe you can negotiate for lower. Should be good for you. No need to upgrade and all. thumbup.gif

this is 2012 model ?

There no point going backwards. If speed is what you are aiming for, then change to road bike cogs at the rear. Increasing the cogs in front will increase speed at the expense of harder pedalling. When it comes to uphill rides, you will be without the lower gears! doh.gif

mine rear cog is already 11T so changing to road bike 11T got different ??

Yeah, that's what I am worried. China worrr.. haha
Anyway, for FD if it's not worth to upgrade might as well stay stock.
The problem is the Raleigh is so nice to ride now after changing tyre to Scwable BA that I am a bit reluctant to change hence the upgrade thingy came into my mind.  tongue.gif
Anyway, still undecided. Hasa I dun quite like their design. Maybe a Java Fit or Tern P9  laugh.gif

So far i'm hapi with my Java Fit... perhaps u can try out if you are join Sam's Putra Jaya ride this saturday tongue.gif

Lol, nama saya pon dikeluarkan yah? Well, yeah Raleigh Ugo is a good beginner bike. U wont know if u r into cycling for long term o jes for the sake of satisfying friend request to join them. If u straight buy good bike but later underused it, then it will be wasted lah. Hence Raleigh Ugo is a good beginner bike that cost somewhere Rm680-Rm750. Btw, I didn't mod any part except add on front light, back light and cyclometer. Ohh yah, the best of the best and until now I am still satisfied which my upgrade is slapping a pair of 20x2.0 Schwalbe Big Apple tyre into my Ugo. Super comfortable comparing to stock Kenda tyre. Just try to experience Kenda tyre for a month and later upgrade to BA. You will appreciate BA very much.. Haha

After hearing advise from many friends, I decided not to waste money to upgrade crankset etc as at the end, it really wont worth much. The bike will end up being too expensive and afterall it's still the entry level Raleigh. Hence I am aiming for Tern Link P9 and most probably will be getting it by year end. Hope there is year end sales by then. Now Rodalink having 20% discount on all Tern bike.  drool.gif

(Ahh side poison, if u have a bit more budget please consider the most basic Tern Link C7 which have now 20% sales at Rodalink Botanic. Is cost about RM1.1k after discount. Really worth it as Tern have very little sales going on as their bike are consider 'premium'.)

Anyway some poison picture again.  cool.gif
*
im totally agree with you. If you nt so sure whether u really into cycling or not, so better get a entry level rather than underused later.... In fact, my first bike was aiming the tern P9. however i also not so sure how serious and consistent am i in this activity so end up i got myself a cheaper bike (java fit). i know this bike is jz so so in terms of quality but i think that's a good excuse for me to upgrade to another bike in the future if i really like this game !! tongue.gif tongue.gif
