I don't have one.
But I am zeroing on Trek 4300 after reading lots of positive reviews.
Can anyone please suggest a good dealer (around Andheri, if possible) in Mumbai.
What would be the dealer (offer and negotiated) price?
Anything I should check for in the bike while buying? Anything extra to be added / adjusted?
I am 5'11 height 80 kg, does it equate to a particular frame size by any means?
I called one dealer, they said they are out of stock and will have to order one if I am sure of buying.
Can someone please help me out buy this bike so I can join the team in next adventure?
Right Makarand ...its 26 inches diameter & the next digits show the width / thickness of the tyre .
So 26 *1.17 means 26 inches diameter 7 1.75 inches width / thickness.
But Road bikes are mostly with mm diameter that is 700 mm/70cm is the normal size .
the best way to callibrate the Bike computer is to fix it on the cycle & take trials as below to ascertain the accuracy of readings .
1 ) Enter the diameter in inches on the computer & mark on the road / concrete ground with chalk upto 10/20 meters , place marks every 1 / 2 meters
2) Place a chalk mark on the side of the tyre & match it with one on the starting point on the ground .
3 ) Roll the Cycle slowly & note the reading on the Cyclocomp ....check if this accurately corresponds to the one on the road .
4) Try this with both readings ie inches & centimetres , check which one is most accurate .
5 ) Make sure the Ground is flat :) .
6) Once done with this methodlogy .....load the results of that on this topic so that many will be able to follow You .
Tryout every single bike before you take a decision ....the Orbea website says thet will tailor make / assemble parts as per the buyers choices of different fittings ...if this is really true then its really worth giving a try . they are having a Trial & Display session in Bandra ...no bike manufacturer allows trials before purchase .
There is a Big Company Showroom of Firefox / Trek in Sanpada You will be able to see many varieties there .

I'm looking forward to buy this bike.We we doing a lot of off road biking and morever the roads around this part are really not trust worthy lot of potholes as big as craters so a road bike it out of question.
What i need to know is...
1) Is it a bang for the price?
2)The components on the bike
3)Has anybody got a UMF bike and knows personally how good/bad are they?. Merida i have heard but this sub-brand UMF doesnt ring a bell.
4)Some pros and cons of this particular model.
Cheers fellas and thanx in advance.Really appreciate if you could add some extra details on your own about this bike and experiences.
