I am planning to buy a road bike for the purpose of fitness and for commuting to the office. But I don't intend to spend more than 10k for it. Any suggestions on which cycle I should buy and from where?
where are you from? you can try options on CYCLOP - http://www.facebook.com/groups/CYCLOPBUYSELL/photos/
with this you may end up buying a bike beyond your budget, in your budget.
I am based in Mumbai....would prefer to buy from some place in Mumbai itself.
See, decent "road bikes" do not come for anything under Rs. 50000.
By commuting to and from office, I think the best you can get for your budget is the Btwin Rockrider 5.0. It comes for around Rs. 10000.
There is currently a huge void between the under 10k segment and better bikes. You'll need to spend upwards of 20k for a better one.
Any bike under 10k won't be much good for long though.
Bought a Rockrider 5.0 a week ago...a sweet deal it is! Was planning to go for a road bike but as you rightly mentioned, none of the nice road bikes come cheap.
The 5.0 will serve you well. Good decision :)
