I had one of my sleepless nights when I heard from Tryon Bikeshop through Ms. Rose Chua that my pre-ordered Doppelganger Blue Gate 208 will arrive in Manila the next day. After my obligation in the office, I was itching to try it so I went to Tryon Bikeshop to check it personally.
The first time I saw my Bluegate 208, I screamed for joy, it was a “kilig much” scream. She was so beautiful and colors are just perfect for lady cyclist like me who loves blue bikes. At 11.8 kgs, I was impressed with smooth pedaling during the test ride. The seven-speed gearing was good for commuting. I immediately changed the flat pedal to clipless as I get used to cleats. By the way, I got it at Php17,500.00.
My first bike commute on Doppelganger was sweet!

Hi Bilogirl. I just read this review which you did a while back so I’m not really sure if you’ll still get to read this and respond. I was just wondering if you could provide any updates on your experience with the Bluegate 208. It’s durability and upgradability to mention just some of the things I’m interested in. I am seriously considering buying one for my wife. Any kind of input from you will greatly be appreciated. Thanks.
