    i understand you don’t endorse using the Heliopolis shop, but if thats the only place to buy bikes in Egypt, could you tell me where it is, i’ll make sure i don’t listen to their advice ;)
    A group of friends nd myslf (all novices) are interested in mountain biking in wadi degla and are looking into buying bikes, i personally have a 6y.o. Huffy that needs a serious overhaul, so im weighing up buying a new one or fixing ‘ol faithfull’
    would be good to get your advice!

    Thanks

    Great article helping the newbies who have just started the mountain biking….The post delivers many good points to remember before choosing a bike for your ride….The main thing we have to consider is the type of ride we are interested in…

    While it is always great to get a brand-new bike, not all of us can afford a new bike purchase as soon as they feel they’re ready for it. While you save for that shiny new ride, here are some effective and low-cost upgrades you can make to your current ride.

    by the way Orbea is one of the best brands in the world, they are spanish made and are extremely good bikes. however i’m sceptic about the not very expensive part because Orbea are usually on the expenive end of bikes even abroad.

    Do you think bescletta is a good place to buy an MTB??

  • Bikes2

    Torpedo is Chinese you’d better buy orbea

  • Ghafur Remtulla

    Before you buy a bike, make sure to research eveything about the components. This can save you money and future frustrastion, since the components on a bike are always the first to go.

    If the bike is for Cairo streets not mountain. What do you recommend ? I researched MTB orbea Tuareg . It’s 2800 . Could you lease advice . If another brand / type is better ?

  • Anonymous

    This is a very low quality bike and is unsafe for riding off-road.

  • Anonymous

    Peugeot is not known for making quality mountain bikes. The locally available Orbeas are mostly low end but not bad as a starter bike.
