Indian Cyclists Network

I want to buy a bike, i am 45 yrs old, please advice

I use to cycle a lot as a teenager, but that was years ago. Recently i borrowed my friend's cycle and went on marine drive on a sunday morning. now im interested in starting regular cycling on weekend mornings. i live on Pedder Road so mostly i will be starting  here and going on marine drive initially. please suggest which bike i should go in for. i visited Firefox showroom on marine lines and liked their Hybrid Roadrunner model for 14K... is this the right bike for me? i am basically biking for pleasure and a bit of exercise to build up my stamina.

Hi this is Nihar from Carmichae Road Bikers, don't know if you have got my earlier reply regarding cycle advice but Do Not make the mistake of buying a firefox ! Only Canondale or little lower in preferance Trek...

check for bicycle fit 

later check for right gearing & upright position.

check for seat height.

canondale seems good ( tires are broader more comfort  but expensive)

schwinn seems reasonable but stay away from hybrids prefer straight bar.

i usually prefer buying used good condition bicyle or older frames & put components i need.

fire fox i advice do not buy.

any clarification please do not hesitate

cycling need not be easy on the body use the basics to prevent injuries and enjoy cycling

take care

y not firefox? wats d prob with it??

Don't be in any hurry to buy a bicycle, take turns to borrow different different cycles from all your family friends and then see which one u like and suits you.  When it come to bikes 100 people will give you 100 suggestions but its all about how u feel on a particular bike.

My advice would be to try Trek 3700 WSD - (Women specific design)

Thanks guys for your advices.i finally bought a SCHNELL _it costed 13k.

it feels great to ride my own bike now.

planning to stick to my route of pedder rd.and marine drive to nariman point now as i am low on

Cheers !happy new year !!and safe cycling!!!
