Wah.. are you planning to join Powerman 2006 or 2007? So active in various of sports? Or is it your intention to fight for Sportsman of Malaysia? :p

Anyway... sports is good for health...just don't too exert. Take it a step at a time, slowly build up your endurance for your body to adapt. :)

Thanks for your kind offer... but regret to inform you I ain't cyclist... I came to know about Powerman Malaysia 2006 from your forum signature.

I do play badminton... maybe I will be joining u for a game or two if there is any.. :)

hey guys, thanks for the feedback. Any idea how much would this bike cost?

http://www.lerun.com.my/product-mtb26a-1.html : as for this one, one piece tyre cost around RM100. it depands it is kevlar or the normal type. the Rock Shox SID Team fork with lock cost about rm1000. the drive terrain is about rm3k. the whole bike is about rm6k to 7k.

as for http://www.lerun.com.my/product-mtb24-1.html is about rm1000 or less

if u r serious enough, do pm me..will hunt a second hand bike for you...but u have to let me know ur height so that i can get the right bike for you...or i take you go to a few bike shops so that u could get a rough idea...

my suggestion is not to invest so fast..make sure that you really like mountain biking, then only invest..i try to get a loan bike for u to try out for a ride or two..if u like it, then buy a entry level new bike which can cost about rm2000 (which include a helmet)

Alexhay: Thanks for all the info and help buddy! I don't think I can invest that much money on a bike right now. I am just a hobbyist. Even the lowest priced bike you mentioned is way beyond my reach :eek:

I may buy a cheap one for starts. I will be checking out the LeRun shop in SS14 soon. Which one do you think I should go for between a budget of RM250-300?

Btw, are you a professional cyclist? You know way too much about bikes for a rookie. Thanks and all the info, greatly appreciated!

when you love a particular sport, you will tend to research a lot about it...
:) and if you plan to go into hobby cycling, maybe we could have a TT for cyclist so that we could chat up more about this. perhaps bring our bike(s).. :)
