Rekta Lagalag na Hindi pa Tapos

This is one of my earlier experiments with Ave. We extended the seat stays up until just beneath the saddle for a stiffer upward pedal stroke. Covered a decent amount of kilometers with this frame prior to it going into "rehab" as I had the head tube changed from oversized to standard sized diameter as well as the down tube from ø38 to it's current 31.8mm diameter. The paint job also went thru a make-over from it's previous powder coated matte black to the present DIY colourway. All for a cleaner look.

As the title suggests, this build is still a work in progress. Pretty as it is, the current fork on this bike is just a temporary replacement. Ave is still working on the real fork, which hopefully, he can finish soon.

Check more images and the component list after the jump.

  1. Ganda Sir! Are most components imported or bought from abroad?
    Thank you..

  2. thanks man.

    yung crank set, hub set at head set online ko nabili. but only because wala pang available na mga ganun dito before. ngayon meron na available na mga ganyang parts sa Tryon, except for the head set. ;)

  3. Thank you Sir..
    Ang prices ba ng Tryon, you think is reasonable?
    Salamat ulit for feedback/s,Want to put a bike together very soon.
    Safe ride & God Bless!

  4. yup, reasonable ang prices ng Tryon. minsan nga mas mura pa compared sa online shops at ibang lokal shops kasi direkta sila either sa brand or sa main distributors.

  5. Thank you Sir! Inspirational mga builds mo,hoping someday I will build mine..
    Be safe & God Bless to all!
