Which bicycle to choose? Raleigh RS100 or Hercules Torrent or peerless bike??



I could not find suncross bikes near my locality.  Since my height is 5.11, Hero Octane Recra is very small to my height.  Hence, i am going for Raleigh RS100 or Hercules  Torrent or peerless bike in 7k range.  Please suggest me which one is good among the two and which one solves my height problem.

First ride on my Hero Octane Recra

Hi guys,

I bought it from Sardar cycle stores at Dadar. I saw some brilliant cycles there but they were way over my budget!

After getting it assembled, I thought the best thing would be a ride home on it to get a feel of the bike. So I set out on my first ride,…

Entrepreneurs:-Promoting Cycling on Mumbai Roads as a "Adventure Sport".

Fellow cyclists, as a regular cyclist since 2 decades i wonder as to the reasons of some savvy entrepreneur not having thought of promoting "Cycling' as a "adventure Sport" in Mumbai.

Just yesterday(Friday 24-12-2010), rode from Prabhadevi to Hill Road in Bandra to do a bit of my Christmas shopping and was… Continue
