Its been 2 years since i had created my profile on this website and posted questions on buying a cycle but I could not due to some reason. But finally today I am getting back to the cycling world. I faintly remembered that I had created a profile on some website and after hours of brainstorming I remembered the website and also the password to my surprise. Guess I can surely say WHERE THERE IS A CYCLE (Will) THERE IS A WAY....
Guys I need help in buying my 1st cycle since adulthood. I am looking at a maximum of 20K. I want it for city riding and fitness.
I humbly request you all to give me your valuable recommendations along with a few reasons so that I can take an educated decision.
Thank you all.
Visit Decathlon at Thane, do a test ride.
@ Himanshu - Test ride but which cycle?
My Details: Height 5.8' Ft Weight - 73 kgs.
Need suggestion guys plz help me.........
@ Aaron thank you so much... I was actually waiting for your reply...Reading your replies in other discussions I wanted your advice in first place....
RR 500 is this the one?? http://www.decathlon.co.uk/rockrider-500-mountain-bike-orange-id_83...
Off the lot you suggested i liked RR 500 however Riverside 500 does not have color options.
@ Aaron lets say I extend my budget to 25K what options do I have? I am considering the same
@ Aaron - Riverside thumbs down because of the color.
N what you suggested for the gear makes sense. Point taken.
In your other posts you have mentioned light, cheap, strong: Choose twoI want something light because I stay on the 2nd floor and I will have to carry the cycle up n down and my building stair case is curved and anyone would choose light and strong.
What should be the ideal thing according to you?
Do I have any other option in Hybrid?
Want to keep my options open.
What's your take on MONTRA BLUES 1.1(2014) & 1.2(2015)?
May I also suggest, with a huge pinch of salt (because I have not read many reviews except 2 or 3 long term ones) Montra Rock 1.1, although you are getting a better deal with RockRider 500 (better components). But, some people find the RockRider frame too aggressive for a starter/beginner.
But, a test ride, after a basic bike fit will tell you a lot.
