Planned investment in SAVA titanium MTB

Wheels of Happiness

From Aliexpress

This post has been encouraged/motivated to acquire a SAVA MTB after talking to Francis King of Mars Kingdom during the FilChi bike fest at Roxas Blvd/  The 550 model which was being sold at promo rate of P25t (or even P19t) for the mechanical type turned out to be heavy.

Then I was informed that they also was selling on promo a titanium bike at P42t according to August Concepcion of Pajak bikes.   I checked with Mars Kingdom (Luds) and found this to be correct.  P43t for the Deore only group set and P49t for the Deore XT  group set.  This is a real bargain considering that Titanium bikes would be the ultimate in price being made from the strongest and lightest metal that there is on earth - titanium  Titanium is normally used for bolts and pedals being light and corrosion free. And they are very expensive. It is said to weigh only 10 kg. and SRP of  P89t. Comes with aluminum rimset and magnesium fork (As to the weight which I am after:   Aliexpress says it weighs 11.9 kg, Nuodtao says it is 9 kg, Mars says it is 12 kg.  -  which is correct?

I plan to check out the bike tomorrow at Quiapo after classes
