Hi all, what brand of Road bike that you’d recommend to a newbie (me) who’s looking to start cycling as a new hobby? Some of my basic infos:

Height: 177cm
Weight: 75cm
Preference: Road bikes / gravel bikes
Budget: < MYR 1500 (I want to give cycling a try before proceeding to better bikes)

From what i researched online, I don’t really see any bikes that fall into my budget range besides than the ones in decathlon... Thus asking opinions / recommendations here from all the sifus biggrin.gif (if anyone wants to sell their rb for cheap cheap, i wouldn’t mind too!!)

try here, maybe got luck once in awhile someone posts something cheap https://bicyclebuysell.com/

for starters i would recommend something used, can buy cheap and sell back at same price if you decide cycling isnt for you. buy new when sell would lose abit of money.
Agree agree.. have been seeing a few used SUNSPEED TRITON for around 1.5K in fb marketplace.. is it a good deal?

Also saw a new NOSH Falcon going for around the same price also.. now in dilemma which one to get 😅

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.

Just to make sure, sensah < shimano sora right?

Do you mind recommending the best brand to go for the budget under 2k? (Used of course) Currently eyeing on polygon, camp or btwin..

I was looking into them to see where it was from... some company down in Johor.  TRS is an ok brand depending on which end of the price spectrum... no frills bike...

mine also senget abit after using mr diy pump. u sure you used the correct hole right since it has 2 hole at the pump head.  dont push down all the way before locking, just raise it a slightly bit up, then lock

It's normal. The problem is you fit it on a valve that is not 6 o'clock.

If your valve is 3 or 9 or whatever, the rubber hos and weight will make the head clap bend a little bit. So it will bend the valve core.

Take a pliers or something and bend it back to shape and scrw it back

Always pam with the valve facing 6 o clock position
