Hello,

Looking for a new bike in Singapore.
I know pretty much what I want (will ride a lot on paved road and a bit offroad first), but in Singapore it's a bit difficult to get bikes in my size (need 21" frame).

Anyway, looking around LBS I came up with three bikes:

Jamis Trail X 3 (http://www.jamisbikes.com/usa/bikes/08_bikes/08trailx3.html)
Trek 3900 (http://www.trekbikes.com/int/en/bikes/2008/mountain_hardtail/3_series/3900/)
Wheeler Pro 29 (http://www.wheelerworldwide.com/pro_29.htm)

The Jamis is the cheapest, the Trek the most expensive. So far I'm leaning towards the Jamis.
The Wheeler looks quite fine from the specs. Especially the fork with lock out sound really good to me. But I didn't have the chance to test ride one in my size, haven't found an LBS that has one in my size yet.

So my main question is:
Is Wheeler a decent brand? Anybody got some experience?
I'm wondering if it's worth the hassle to test ride one and haven't found much on the internet about it. Or one of the other two?

thanks in advance ;)

Wheeler Worldwide

My very first mtb was a Wheeler ZX 2800 cromo frame with a RST280 front suspension on it. I had done some races on it then upgraded to the ZX 5900 alu frame with a RST Mozo fork on it. It was really great bikes and durable, geometry was standard to xc bikes and built quality on par with other brands.For some reason, I suppose poor sales in South Africa the distributor did not import it anymore. Since 2005 they are back with new bikes and still not common on the trails, the the occasional one is spotted at races. Still impressive and a good buy imo.:thumbsup:
