Indian Cyclists Network

Chaps,


 I have finalized on a few road bikes:
1. BTwin Sport-1 ~15K
2. Trek 1.1 ~30K
3. Giant SCR2 (2011 model) - 29K
4. Bianchi via NIRONE 2300 - cheaper 2010 model (if available anywhere), with carbon forks ~30K
5. KHS Flite 300 (fork made out of some composite material) - Rs. 27K
Budget-wise I can go up to ~Rs30K.
Specs wise all these bikes are in the same bracket (Al alloy frame, Shimano 2300 components, etc.).
Now how is Giant SCR2, it is really catching my attention. Has any one ridden on it? It is a chinese make. 
I find this choice really confusing. My main concern is the smoothness of the ride, durability of components, and looking for VFM :).
Plz pour in your thoughts.
Thanks,
-Aditya.

Thanks for the reply. I am based out of pune. Where can I test ride these bikes here? Any info?

Thanks

Visit lifecycle mall Pune. Most of these bikes will be on display.

i did but giant scr2 was not there..neither was trek 1.1.. any other places in pune?

Try surender cycles - karve road. not sure if they have it, but perhaps it might help

i donno have a any knoledge about roadbikes,but check KHS flite 300 good speecs n brands components................

 

Specs wise they are the same, price wise they are the same - what makes you think there is going to be a significant difference in performance (the Sport1 isnt in the same league as the others)?   This focus on buying based on reading the spec sheet and not actually riding the damn bike blows my mind.

 

Ride the bikes, see which one you like the most (eg, which saddle fits best, which handlebar is most comfortable, which bike handles better).    No one else can do your homework for you.

 

If there is tie-breaker, buy the one which you think looks the best.

 

If you must buy base on specs, get one with a carbon fork instead of an Al fork.   

 

Ignore the advice about buying Italian or buying Brand X.   All these entry-level frames are made in China or Taiwan. and are about the same.
