I suggest go for Btwin RR 5.0. Mumbai roads are not meant for cycling. MTB cycles are ideal for Indian roads. Two hours of ride is manageable on MTB bikes. If planning for long cross country rides then go for Btwin Riverside 3 man

Hey Vivek!
It's been having a busy week and hence the late response.

1. Yes, Fuji has some decent hybrids in their Absolute series. See if you can get a chance to ride one before you buy.

2. Good, good. I was expecting you to wait until the rains subside before you take the plunge.

3. My schedule for the weekend is still unclear. I shall try and reach out to you over phone tomorrow evening.

Cheers,
Hemanth Tummala

Hi Vivek!
I too have been looking for company.
Unless you plan to go on off-road trails, MTBs aren't really advisable.
I am guessing that you would be riding a lot on well paved roads, so a road bike or a hybrid would make more sense. Road bikes are lighter and are built for speed, but aren't as sturdy as MTBs and Hybrids and the seating posture too isn't upright to facilitate lower drag.


So, if you're looking for something with a relaxed seating posture, isn't too slow and can take the beating from Mumbai's roads, look no further than a hybrid. However, do consider a road bike if you plan to ride occasionally and that too on good roads, in low traffic.
You could start with an entry level Hybrid and work your way up eventually based on your engagement levels. If your budget is about 15k, I suggest you go for the Montra Blues. It has the best specs for a bike under 25-27k. If your budget is even tighter, you could try looking for a good deal on a used Hercules Ryders Neo or a Rockrider 5.0.

Hope that helped.
