Polygon seems reputable? What about TRS?

TRS is a local brand. Probably same level as Camp or the European sounding brand new china own companies...

Just change rear derailleur from Ultegra r6800 SS to r8000 Ultegra GS, old cassette 12-25t 5800 remove and installed new cassette Meroca 11-36 (232gram lightweight) 11speed road bike without wolf tooth hanger or 1.8mm spacer. Gear ratio:- 11-36T: 11-13-15-17-19-21-23-25-28-32-36T cost me rm285

From 12-25t to 11-36t ofc you'll need new chain for this setup, if not you wont be able to shift until 36t, big big or small small. I used YBN full-hollowed Ti-Gold chain with master quick-link

Trick:- adjust the B-screw clockwise all the way in, Shimano told not to do so but i did. Shift perfectly, good for climbing. This is cheapest solution for those who want climb and got wide range of gear selection.

Next upgrade if i found 11-36T usefull, the best cassette SRAM PG-1170 11-36t with gear ratio 11,12,13,15,17,19,22,25,28,32,36 more closer cog on high gear better than Shimano 11-34T, better than CS-M8000 11-40T cassette (MTB cassette) which need spacer and dura ace XT chain - might need wolf tooth also.

Forget about new road bike under rm2k with Shimano Sora groupset, rm2k can buy new road bike with sensah groupset such as Kespor, Geometric, Cronus.

Try go to buy&sell website:- https://bicyclebuysell.com search for the used road bike with better groupset under rm2k budget. Facebook market also got many seller would like to sell their used road bike, try to negotiable with them. You'll be able find Camp, XDS, BTwin, Raleigh, Polygon S2, Merida, Sunspeed, Megamo, Twitter, Renox etc. Try your luck there.

Going with Sensah means you are tied in with the few local bike shops that carry Sensah groupset. Different story if you are well-versed with ordering parts from Taobao/ AliExpress, then you can order the parts and go to any other bike shops to install for you

Yes bike fit will solve the issue...but prepare to spend money

Few issue with penis numbness based on high chance to low
1) your saddle is incorrect and it's pinching the nerve or limiting blood flow . Need to get right saddle ( your sit bone is sitting on saddle instead of nerve sitting on saddle). May need to get one with a cutout in the middle and tweak fore aft and tilt
2) saddle too high

Got a quote from cyclelogy JB for RM150, will probably go there once we can cross daerah. I feel like I'm sitting too far forward on the saddle and if I scoot my butt back it's very uncomfortable. I was going to try and adjust the the saddle myself but worried I'll screw it up even more. Any tips for working out if the bike fit is a good one?

What you can do is take a marker and mark existing rail setting. And then adjust saddle backwards to your liking. What saddle you using ?


Some saddles are meant for you to move around like fizik arieone ...some like smp ..is more fixed ( tail end is higher and uncomfortable if you go towards the back)

In practice..saddle is very individual specific thing. Either it works or it don't work. If you try to make it work...expect some form of issues with comfort


Also wear a good bib ...not those 50 ringgit one. If u want cheap...try decathlon bib ( won't last long..max maybe 6 mo before sponge start to flat out)

Yeah... IMHO, I will go with Shimano Sora(or probably a Claris if budget doesn't allow) being reliable even if you can get slight more gears on the Sensah groupsets...

Polygon is good since they came a long way.... Camp is pretty good now even their 1st gen were horrible if I can recalled my mates' ... Btwin is also ok but the cheaper ones tend to come with Microshift groupset.

Word of caution... stay away from those ultra budget bikes that comes with freewheel instead of a freehub...

ex-Sensah empire pro user here...
there are a few pro n con abt it ...

Pro:
the shifting is very crispy smooth... better than sora, almost the same as 105
price point is very low...
12 speed... i been using 11-32t ... the smaller gap difference makes shifting smoother.


Con:
left shifter is fragile (but the latest model should fixed it, they change from plastic to alu (or some metal) )
cannot shift when not pedaling, the chain will jump off the pulley (yes by right we should not do that we well, just something to take note.)
the hood groove are kinda sharp, not an issue if using glove.
