"Hello Deepak, if you are writing from Pune or can come to Pune to pick the bike I can get you a good deal.
If your application is Road Biking try the Firefox range it can be value for money - I have ridden one, the other is Fomas - though not…"
i'm not too familiar with Pune, although i have cycled down there a couple of times... :-)
the last time i was there (last month), i did a night ride (Aundh-Sus Road-Pirangut ghat-Chandni Chowk-Aundh), a day ride across the city (Aundh-Tilak Road-Swar Gate-Hadapsar- Viman nagar - Aundh) and another day ride to Kadakvasla dam.. also took some time out to swim in the lake.. :-)
seasoned cyclist? not really... i'm just someone who enjoys cycling a lot... :-)
yes, i went for the Mahakali cyclothon... my daughter enjoyed it... although the main rally was quite poorly organised...
