Question:

i have a bike that i manage to change from a MTB frame and made it to suit the road, im just looking around for a good road that is value for its money and i had always liked Trek bikes,  and when i saw your bike, i kinda like it. so i wanna see hows the price of it and how is it as a stock bike. ive see the upgrades that you have made to your bike, so how was it when you first rode it without any upgrades. thanks.

Answer:


MTB can't really compare to a roadie. Diff groupsets all together. The price of this bike is about 2300 SGD. The original groupset is fine - works like a charm. That price isn't really what a first time roadie should pay. There is the 1.5 Trek or something which is about 1500 or something. Go to the shop at Jalan Kilang Barat - near Queensway. They will be the best to advise.

Question:

Hi Jon,

Im very interested to get my first road bike, how much did you pay for your stock bike and where did you get it??

Answer:


My first road bike was actually a hybrid. It was also a Trek and the model was 7.1FX. Then when I got hook on cycling that's when i converted to a roadie. If it's your first bike my advise will be to spend about 800 to 1K as you will certainly want to upgrade after your first taste of a roadie. A polygon or felt will be good or look at this togoparts.com Marketplace where they have lotsa second-hand entry-level roadies. Hope this helps.
