    I suggest buy a new tube will do.

    The learning point here is to carry an extra tube, pump & tyre levers for rides.

    But, firstly one must know how to change tyres...i say only cos i also dont know how

    agreed with lenson, t-serv didn't have tubeless, unless u r talking abt MTB then yes tubeless. just change ur *nai ni* will do. before changing it, check on ur t-serv whether any sharp objects around the side walls.

    ah... i don't know if the new XT stuff would fit into my stumpy. i got the bike in the early 90's. anyone have a 90's XT groupe set lying around?
    i think u still can get a decent 90's groupe in togoparts.com or smbf.com.sg/forum, else get an SLX 1 grade cheaper then XT...have fun shopping..

    Hi

    For AVA 3.0 with disc brakes, you can get for $600 at TCH Bikes at Whitesands. From my research, I think thats the best price already

    you don't have to carry the whole bike, just remove the back tyre and bring that to the shop.

    hmm thanks..i might be going in evening later..will check it out.. the thing about the shop that i visited yesterday is that its 4 bus stops from my place so paying 50 more for convenience might make sense...hehe

    i'd take the polygon helios. quite good for value for entry level road bike. can call some shops to check out the prices. a few models are below your budget.
    cheers

    you can check this out
    http://www.polygonbikes.com.au/helios300.html
    currently selling at 900+ if i'm not wrong. the helios 450 would be less than your budget also.
