I'm a Dentist aged 34 , Ht: 5'3'' Wt: 64. Inseam: 29.5.
I'm planning for to buy a good quality BIKE. My budget is 20k.
After browsing for some time i couldn't decide to go for Hybrid or MTB.
i stay in a town where my road aren't good. I like to go for a ride on weekends for 30-50kms.
i live near Bangalore.
I saw 2-3 bikes
1. Btwin Rockrider 500- Rs20000.
2. Btwin Riverside 3 men- Rs.20000
3. Montra Blues 1.1 -19k+
4. Bianchi Dual -21.5k
Please suggest me a good bike in my budget, other than these models & brands is Ok for me.
Thanks in Advance.
Thank you Aaron.
i will take this in to consideration. If i can stretch my budget to 25k is there any good bikes.
I personally have never ridden a hybrid bike, and have not a lot of info. on them.
But, I do know that at MRP, a decent hybrid will cost at least between 25-30 grand.
The brands that also have decent hybrids are Schwinn, Scott, Fuji or Merida.
The internet is loaded with info. you just have to look for it.
thank you aaron
Hi Aaron Track and trail offering schwinn sporterra 4 for 21k should i go for it?
Did spoke to them Cannondale quick 5 2014 white was offered for 36k, quick 6 2015 was offered 33k. Quick 5 2015 was priced same.
i'm confused now which one to choose. I can stretch my budget to 33k.
Give me the final decision
See, this is good, having a whole lot of choices.
By what you are telling me about the price difference of Quick 5 2014 Vs. 2015, it is clear that the 2015 model has downgraded components.
Quick 6 2015 has a chromoly-steel fork and is definitely better than and alloy one, steel forks are better at absorbing road vibrations.
Do check this bike also: Trek 7.1 FX 2013 - http://www.choosemybicycle.com/in/en/bicycles/Trek/Hybrid/trek-7.1-...
You may find the above trek at either a good bicycle store that sells them or at any FireFox Showroom (be wary, many of the employees at FireFox are reported as being NOT very good at handling bikes).
Some people say that buying brands like Trek and Cannondale, one gets a good resale value with the bike, but the bike may be a bit more expensive. But with not so dominant brands such as Schwinn and Fuji, you get a value for money bike.
The final decision has to be made by you. I am here just as a guide, to help you out in finding the right bike.
Remember, since now you have a good range of bikes that you can pickup, you must take a test ride of each bike, the bike must be of your size and be fitted to/for you. There is every chance that you might not like the cannondale and would prefer the Schwinn and is even possible the other way around, hence a test ride is necessary.
