Ano kaya ang magandang gawin sa Fat Bike ko? Balak ko kasi mag-upgrade ng hubs at brakes, kaso di ko alam kung worth it ba sa aking bike. Eto yung specs

STOCK SPECS
Specifications:
  • 26inch Full suspension fatbike
  • Lightweight Steel Frame Front and Rear suspesion
  • Sealed Bearing Bottom Bracket
  • Shimano 1x7 Speed EasyFire Shifter
  • Shimano Tourney TZ Rear Derailleur
  • Bolid Mechanical Disc Brakes
  • 26x4.00 Tires

Upgrades
  • Shimano Alivio Shifter
  • Shimano Alivio RD (Class A)
  • 9-speed sprocket/cogs
  • Chain

Paano rin pala malalaman yung size ng hubs? yung mm? Tsaka any upgrade recommendations po yung tipong less pagod at more speed?




PS: Hirap na bitawan ng fat bike kasi puro lubak mga kalsada sa Pilipinas kahit pa sa mga highway eh. Balak ko kumuha ng Dahon Route folding bike pang-long ride pero maganda parin pang-gala ang fat bike.

Hello Mam. Ok naman yang fat bike niyo, pero if you have cash to spare just buy a new one (Dahon is good) and still keep the fat bike. Since base sa post niyo ay you do biking on paved roads, the following are my suggestions for upgrade should you consider doing it on your fatty:

  • change your drivetrain. 34T chanring and 10-46T cogs is a good combination, either 10-speed or 11-speed. get the latest ones as they are lighter. and get from known brands: shimano, sram, box, sunrace, etc.
  • new brakes. go hydraulic. hindi maganda ang modulation ng mechanical brakes, at least the cheap ones, gaya ng nasa bike ninyo.
  • new set of tires, same specs sa meron kayo. go tubeless.
  • new cockpit: saddle, handle bars, grips, and stem.
  • new pedals. get the ones with spikes para maganda ang retention sa shoes. make sure that the spikes are not plastic. raceface chesters or similar is a good start.
  • buy new shoes intended for biking. get a good flat shoes that grip the pedals. 5/10, attack, or sandugo has some good mtb shoes.
  • get a good set of lights, one both sa front and rear.
  • ditch your fenders (both front and back) and your spoke reflectors. pero personal taste ko na ito.

Wow salamat po sa detailed opinion. So far na-upgrade ko na yung saddle sa medyo comfy good quality one. Ang iche-checkout ko sa shopee mamaya ay etong mga ito:

Then bibili na ako ng Hydraulic brakes idk kung mag-Shimano MT200 ako or Yung Zoom hb875 parehas naman daw good quality eh, kaso masyadong mataas yung patong sa MT200 ng mga shops ngayon.

Ang inaalala ko lang kasi ay kung worth it ba i-upgrade yung bike kasi yung frame ko ay steel lang tapos random chinese brand pa kaya wala akong makitang ibang opinion para dito. Gusto ko yung full suspension kasi malaking tulong talaga. Bale etong nasa cart ko ay 2k na tapos 2k din yung hydraulic brakes.
