You can ask about the address for Trek and Merida dealers here on this forum. I am sure you will get all the answers. I am not aware of their specific addresses. Some of the dealers are also on this forum.

In case you have specific questions about the bike themselves, don't hesitate to drop me a note at

Moving from a Road bike to MTB or vice versa are not upgrades or degrades , they are 2 different bike models build for specific rides and terrain. I own both.

It seems you already know what you are looking for. I think a Trek 3700, 4300 or its Merida equivalent is what you should be looking at. There are a few dealers in and around Bombay and I am sure they can help you with a test ride, accessories etc. I think if you are OK lugging around a MTB then those are good choices.

So you already have budget for very good bikes!

Both Trek and Merida are good enough for Indian road conditions. There are enough people I know who rides these bikes and they are extremely satisfied. Many riders of the upcoming Tour of Nilgiris are riding bikes made from Trek and Merida. So the question that arises now is whether you prefer to ride MTB's or Roadbikes or Hybrids? Have you read about these bikes or their specific functions?

There are no maintenance free bikes. Every Bike whether it costs 1,000 rs or 100,000 rs needs maintenance if you plan to ride it.

Also if you are looking for specific bike recommendations then you need to a post a budget. For some a 5000Rs is expensive while for others maybe 50,000Rs is not. There are many bikes out there within every budget.

But from the tone of your post, I get a feeling that you would be better of getting an Indian bike. Though it will not be repair free!
