Nice site,

i hope to do the trip from Banaue to Baguio on my mtn bike one day. I did it in an old bus a couple of years ago and the scenery was stunning. I'll never forget it...

Cheers

Re: Filipino riders web page

Do you know of anymore Filipino biker websites? - Especially road bikers? I'm a Flip living in Chicago, IL USA.

If you locked up an Ultegra bike outside an SM Mall in the Phillippines would it get stripped of parts?

I see a few Flips riding nice bikes over here too.

That's really hard to believe! I heard the most Filipinos in America are in the SF Bay Area! And there aren't many of them as road bikers?

I saw a few Flip roadbikers in Chicago. Most of them at a race, then very few at the Chicago Lakefront bike path.

If you lock your bike outside sm malls your parts will not be stripped off. Malls here in Phil. are starting to make there own parking space for bikes and motor bike with a watchfull eyes of a security guard, you just have to bring your own lock.

and I'll look for other Filipino biking web sites

Thanks for your response. I visited the Phillippines in Dec 2004 and at every bike shop I mostly saw mtn bikes and more affordable bikes. The only Giant OCR 1 I saw was a bike frame & fork set. A decent affordable road bike offered by one shop cost 35,000 pesos. Where do people shop for nice bikes?

I wonder - is it possible to get an exact same bike like my bike pictured ? - A Giant OCR 1 with Jandd Commuter panniers. And do they sell U locks in the Phillippines?

Have you ever seen the Burley Nomad in the Phillippines and is it possible to buy it there? See http://www.bicycletrailers.com/burley-nomad.shtml

My cousin brought me to a high end bike shop in Pasay and they only had 1 complete genuine carbon fiber Colnago for sale. But they had Ksyriums SLs and Zipp 404's. They gave a good price for the Zipp 404's - about $980 US dollars when converted vs $1200 back in the USA.

If I was rich or had a lot of money to retire I would go to the Phillippines every Winter for 3 months and avoid the Chicago Winters. But Chicago has a beautiful lake front bike path that I would miss! I would have an OCR 1 with panniers just like the picture and I would also use the Burley Nomad! I would live in Quezon City with my cousins.

I also saw a criterium race in Quezon City. I was nice to see women racers too!

Believe it! A lot of pinoys here but they're not into cycling. They're not willing to get their skin tanned any further!! I dont mind, I use sunblock, at least it minmizes it... Most of them play basketball in the shades!!! Funny but true!

Quiapo bikes shops - here you will really find Good price for high Quality
Cartimar - sorry but I do not know the exact location
Power Bikes - Rockwell Makati > Here you might find all the high end products you've been asking me. but I'm not 100% sure if they are available and how much they are priced.

and if ever you want to live with your cousin here in Phil. I suggest Residing here in Marikina, coz currently its the most pleasant city here in metro and it also a bicycle friendly city.

In Cartimar (Libertad, Pasay City), here's a list of some very good bike shops:

Kristy's
Velocity
Paulina's
Elixir

I've shopped at some point in these 4 shops and they have the latest and at a price that is definitely cheaper compared to US prices.

O good you know the place, those bike shops you mentioned are all in cartimar. normally bike shops owners purchase there goods in Cartimar or Quiapo. But not all shoppes From there because some bike shops offers lower prices coz they Import parts, Frame and, accessories directly from the factory.

But I've heard From my friends that prices at Quiapo are much lower than in Cartimar and they also have the latest and some times if your lucky you'll spot a part that they sell for extremely low price.

Another nice bike shop is Trixx in Balete Drive in New Manila Quezon City.
