i can off the roads whenever i can whenever i want
tho not as extreme as the broken jetstream guy

ok, so i notice the miragen 217 has got shocks... where other models dont have... hmm.. its also heavier... during my mtb time, i had a hardtail... now that i see both front and rear of the 217 has got shocks, does this mean its going to be harder to pedal or takes more effort to pedal on the road?
*
QUOTE(ggMing @ Aug 19 2013, 12:35 PM)
bro, have you had other bike prior to this??
other doppels weight 12.3kg average out...
miragen weights 15kg.. and with front and rear shocks?
whats your take on the shocks for road cycling?
*
not realy
cuz de shocks is quite hard so u probably pedal de same
well
the shocks actually not realy absorbing (at least its not as u might expect it) but it does its job more or less
but i tink if its a hardtail n rigid fork i still ok with it
but saying this i dont have any other bike nor ride any other bike
so cant realy compare to it
if u want dis bike cuz of the shocks u might be dissappointed
i did
but then now i dont realy mind animor tongue.gif
if u want road cycling folding bike take a look at this or this
they r more proper mini velo for road cycling
take a look at this for example of mod of what can u do to it
dat fledermaus got realy nice mod thumbup.gif damn!
me im planning to get de vantage in future
hehe tongue.gif
but then if u still want a doppelganger dat is
thers still many choices out there tongue.gif

cheers

hehe

and for expensive folding bike
well
if one can afford it why not?
say if they want to sell it later
its a bargain to others
dat is if they want to sell it at cheap price la kan
those bikes even second hand one is still expensives.damn

of course, it would be good to spend on a bike... but i very much prefer to upgrade it... ive read that dahon are somehow harder to upgrade due to their own fixtures on things... i dont fully understand folding bike yet...

but i hope i can upgrade stuff like fd,rd,crankset and brakes...
thinking to get the tern P9 but i dont know whats good about that bike...

the groupsets and such also branded other diff names... eg: my MTB, uses SLX, which that time, is the best from shimano... but i dont think i can fit that here right? or i could?
*
if miragen 217 (and other foldies that is non-neos rd) yes u can
like dis miragen

What is your average foldable cruising speed on a level road?

For road bikes, it is normally above 30 km/hr, i think..

Depends on their bike usage..

If all they want is speed, can always get UCI license and take part in road races.. That way, can justify with a record and some medals on the wall as motivation..

There's always leisure cycling and other aspects of cycling that are not speed-related.. Try bikepacking, bikecamping and touring..

dat is mor like my style tongue.gif

thanx mr samo
will shop for cateye then tongue.gif

QUOTE(butthead @ Aug 20 2013, 03:28 PM)
yeah... i mean there is no need for any acknowledgement... can't they jus enjoy the ride...

everywhere i turn.. it's people talking i was averaging this and that on that road.. and i was overtaking this slowpoke and that...

dude, not everything in this world is a competition... they are taking the fun out of riding a foldie... and i don't understand why they bought a foldie in the first place if they are talking about chasing down people riding road bikes...

a total smack in the head, this is sometimes..
*
i guess being positively competitive is ok
just talking bad or talking down to other cyclist dats not ok
hehe
me cuz most of de time i ride alone (actualy all de time sweat.gif )
n not a racing kaki so i dont realy care bout speed
but then its nice to know how r ur cycling
n how is others...rite?
anyway as long as its for de love n joy of cycling
aniting,evriting or noting will do tongue.gif hehe

Thanks Sam. As you can see my budget is already straying northwards. It's just that once I think of spending more, so-called "value for money" gets into the equation. Hence the Hasa/XDS/Java thoughts.

it's flexing regardless of the height setting.. unless i really tighten the clamp till it's way too uncomfortable to operate by hand

just wondering if this could further damage anything, otherwise i don't mind having to really tighten it each time

also, if i switch to BA tire, can i then go up n down pavement/curb without worrying too much about my single wall rims?  tongue.gif
*
shud be
provided dat de tire not pumped to max
so it shud be absorbing most of the shock of up n down de curb
mine is not ba but dth
but shud be omos de same tongue.gif

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!

im not a sifu so i can ony answer de ktm question tongue.gif
ktm all u need is a bag
mine cuz i can ony fold into two so its not so compact
like budgee said (thanx budgee tongue.gif )
so i "stroll" it so i just cover it all except the wheels
something like this
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «

or like samo u just pack the whole bicycle into the bag n carry de bag
tongue.gif

QUOTE(Halia @ Aug 26 2013, 11:28 AM)
Got a question on "drive & cycle":  If you take your folding bike to places such as shopping centre to shop/window shopping, where can you park your bike safely? You can't carry it around with the carrying case, can you?  Do shopping centre has a storage renting service?  So what is the practice in this case.  Please share.  Cheers
*
if shoping centre i dont tink its posible.its either u carry the bag or park at motorcycle area?not so sure but if ur bike is slim like brompton or somting like thers a video of it in the thread b4 but i kinda lazy to search for it (my bad tongue.gif ) u can carry it n make it as a shoping trolley
but i dont tink its posible with normal folding bike
myb if 16" bike is posible
like samos pic n said seems like 16" is de best logistically
hehe tongue.gif

QUOTE(adriankhoo153 @ Aug 26 2013, 11:41 AM)
Can we change the chain guard to a better one without having to change the whole crankset? Mine seems to patah and bengkok a bit as it is plastic type. Perhaps a metal one will be better. The chain guard is to prevent the chain to drop out in case of sudden jump.
*
mine is plastic
dono if got metal one
usually this thingy i see on dj/dh bike
but then its ony in 30+ teeth crank so its kinda small
if got report here
i kinda want for it too
