I finally got the ultimate of all bikes - a titanium MTB

Happy independence day.

After a month long research and campaign to get funding for the purchase, I finally got yesterday the much coveted SAVA Explorer Titanium bike from Mars Kingdom c/o Kiam and Luds. I got the bike cash for a little under P50,000.

It is equipped with the following:

Sava titanium alloy frame

WTB seat, WTB rim and tires

Titanium seat post (oversized)

Titanium handle bar

Titanium pedals

XT group set:  brakes, crank, FD, RD,  cogs

11 -36 cogs (I was not able to get the 11 to 42

Manitou magnesium front shocks

I assembled the bike myself last night in 30 minutes.  All you need to do after unpacking from the box are:  install the handle bar on the fork, install the front wheel and the pedal.

Adjustments were made on the fine tuning of the derailleur (the cable needed tightening) and the derailleur needed alignment (the high adjustment).   Save for a bolt that tightens the clamp to the handle bar, (na bilog ang allen groove) The bike is a OK, it  is light and looks like a jewel

I understand that there are just 3 more units remaining for the sale. (50% discount on the list price of P89,000). The unit with Deore groupset and SAVA only fork sells for P43,000 cash (+ 5% if bought with credit card.)

Go to Mars Kingdom Quiapo (the one with maroon and green painting) right after the overpass, and contact Luds or Kiam 02 242 4484
