Road Bike Frames, Wheels & Components / Re: Road Carbon Frames

Got mine from Peter (Carbon Speed).  You can check my build by clicking here.

If you hang around ChinerTown long enough, you'd probably know that that is the general opinion of most folks here.

Here's my non-chiner bike... a Haro Projekt fixed gear. Although I run it on free-wheel.

Love it!  Some decals to match those rim would make it perfect.

That Lauf fork reco sure gave me some chills.  Don't get me wrong, I actually love it, it's just that I will need to sell one of my bikes to increase my budget pool.  Otherwise, I'm it's a 2018 project.  Hehehe.

IMO maintenance is not a reason to go rigid.  Have you had a lot of maintenance problems with suspension forks in the past?

I agree, going rigid shouldn't be about maintenance. And yes, I did encountered some problems with my suspension forks before, these problems were partly why I got into rigid in the first place.

Don't really know where to put this but...

I've been exploring this nearby island and had seen a good number of trails. Trails that my full rigid 29er XC starts to feel inadequate. So I'm considering building a new HT trail bike. My options are 29er with suspension fork or a full rigid plus bike. Haven't decided on wheel size for the plus size but kind of leaning on 29+.

My concern is would a rigid plus wheel feel as good (better) than suspensioned 29er? I personally want a rigid fork because it's maintenance-free.

Income class where A for the rich and famous, C for the mass market, B those who falls in between.

I'm from the Philippines.  Sava is not Philippines made, they are from China but they have a distributor here that's been pretty aggressive with marketing.  Mostly targeting the class C market.  I did some research last year, was interested with their Ti bikes.  The thing was their site claims it's a well known German brand who built some factories in China but folks here in ChinerTown from Europe claimed they never heard of the brand. I couldn't find much info and those that l found doesn't seem to be reliable.  So l backed out.

Guys, I don't know much about plus tire bikes so l was wondering why you're choosing to convert this to a 29er instead of just going for a regular 29er full sus frame.

About 16 or 17 years ago when I got my first trail worthy HT XC for only a couple of months, I hit 70kph going downhill (road).  It was such a rush and exciting I might add.  It didn't scared me.  I actually loved it.  Even talked about it for a few days.  But it got me thinking hard and eventually got myself on a self-imposed speed limit.  No over 40kph downhill and no over 55kph on flat.  I still abide by this rule to this day although I do get tempted to break the downhill limit once in a while.  Reason for this speed limit... I always knew my strenght was endurance riding not speed, not agility and not concentration, my simple goal was to be able to keep on enjoying cycling way past retirement age.  Be safe.

Thanks for the info Willis.  That's pretty much around 200lbs load.  I'm gonna need to shave of 10lbs... from my body.  You're a couple of inches taller than me but I outweight you by at least 10lbs.

Looks like you had a lot of fun.  Do you mind if I ask what is the estimated weight of total load (rider + baggage + water) you had on the bike for your bikepacking trip?  Need some info as me and some friends are considering doing some bikepacking.  Thanks.
