Pain on outer sides of knees

Friends, I completed Brevet (200 km category) conducted on 25th Oct 2015 in Hoshiarpur, Punjab. I started cycling in August only. Though I could not practice much for around 2 weeks prior to the event. During the Brevet, when around 140 km were done (& 70 km were left), I suddenly started experiencing pain on the outer sides (my left and right sides) of both knees. This…

Hi friends, I am facing a problem. I had cleaned chain and cranks of my Terrain 10 (24 gear) bike with diesel to remove dirt. The chain is pretty clean now. But mistakenly I applied the brush to disks also. Now the breaking efficiency has decreased tremendously and its making huge noise. Can anybody help me?

When I suggest a size, I assume that the rider has a decent amount of experience, or is able to bend his back near about 45 degrees (where 45 degrees is an ideal position).
I searched a good amount of sites from google, and they suggested that for someone 5.9' tall and with 31" inseam height, should go for an 18" frame. In this case, a 18.5" frame would do good.

18.5 should fit you quiet well for general purpose riding other than trails . suspention with lockout is great while climbing but before ride you have to adjust the pre-load of the shock.

there is only 18.5 and 19" frame in the web.why i said to go for a bit small frame size is that you will get lot more room to move around the bike in some situation.if you are opting it only for road  18"frame is okay .but make sure to sit on bike that has similar size frame ,it will give you whether to purchase it or not.

the spec for the price tag is good .more the gears better cadence in all areas.Most rim brakes are way better than a cheap disk brake.as the brake engages it gets heat and will start to bend in low cost disk brake,but it can be fixed with some labour.

What is your inseam length?

In general, a 19" frame should fit you. And the closest to that is 18.5", 19.5" may be a bit more stretched out.

hi neeraj, according to the your height and leg length frame sizes will fit 17,17.5,18" frames will be suitable for you.but make sure "reach" of bike is perfect for your body(length between handle bar and seatpost),according to me its the most important measurement on the bike.

as of the bike it feels a heavy overall ride is good, though i do not recommend this bike for hard trail riding as it gets less responsive in trails and its disc brake is disappointing.

For the kind of riding you mentioned its good enough. As you are planning for the small rides in road i recommend you to take look at some hybrids .

ride safe and good luck.

- I always ask, can you increase your budget? If yes, then how much?
- I am going to make my stand clear here, Raleigh is a decent brand, but, so many other companies that make-value-for-money bikes, have all failed to make bikes with even a single disc-brake, within the 19-20k budget. Eg.- Decathlon Rockrider 340, Montra Rock 1.0, both of them don't have disc-brakes, where as the Raleigh Terrain 10 (according to the link you have provided, maybe the model you saw in your area might not have disc-brakes, do confirm with me) being sold by Suncross has double disc-brakes, doesn't that raise any suspicion? I have one opinion about Suncross Level 1, avoid it.
- Like I have given above, Btwin Rockrider 340 and Montra Rock 1.0 (better components, good riding position for starters) come within your budget.
- Yes, the 19" and 19 5" should fit you, but you still need to do a bike fit after buying it.

Yes, it will be great for your height. Do adjust seat height accordingly. Maintain tire pressure to at-least 40 psi for a great ride. You can join our community on fb 'mohali cycle club"

Hi Neeraj, I'm 30 yrs from chandigarh and from last 1 years I'm riding Raleigh Terrain 10 bike. It's a good bike for around 16K, however I'm not that satisfied with its performance. Raleigh have just came up with some exciting new bikes AT 10 and AT 20. They have real good bearings, light weight and 24 gears. Sometimes, my 21 gears lacks in sprint racing. Do consider B'twin riverside 3 bike available only at Decathlon stores. Amazing performance!

Happy Riding !!
