Hi!

Help. Im confuse which to get. Which is a better buy. Java decaf is currently on offer at $380. While the vert v8 is selling at $398. The vert looks like kalaq though. My budget is 400 though. Appreciate your wonderful advise!

I tried the 2 bikes today. Im picking java decaf over vert8. Java feels more rigid. The problem most shops do t have stocks til Feb.

Hi,

I own the Vert V8. The reason why I choose Vert is that it has the same frame as Tern and it come in the color that I like Matt Black.

In term of spec between those 2, It similiar. Both 7spd and come with disc brake.

Go test ride both and go with your heart.

Yup, I just found the offer too. It's the launch price and I've missed the boat I guess :(

Btw, do you know if mightyvelo is the official distributor for java in SG?

hey guys, new to forum but purchased a vert v8 (over the java tt, which was nice but i thought a clear #2 compared to v8) and wanted to ask a question for the other owners.

i am pretty satisfied with the bike overall, it's nice...but i'm suspicious that the tyres are not authentic kenda tyres and the owner is not giving a clear answer.

when i compare online with other kendas, it appears:

1) the tread is different, 
2) as are the color borders on the tyres (i have the red and black ones), and 
3) the branding on the tyre is no done without color or in the same format as the other ones i see online (example here: http://www.utahtrikes.com/uploads/utrecenttrikepics/3127/pic/9.jpg) 

For 3, you can also compare against v6 tyres, which i believe should be same kendas: http://www.bicyclesg.com/uploads/1/8/5/5/18555668/6952715_orig.jpg

let me know if you have any idea about this or are facing similar issues with your V8?

thanks
