Indian Cyclists Network

Hello! :)

Well, am sure you must've come across a big lot type blog wherein all the new timers put in the idea that they are buying a new bike, but are confused which one to go for. And this one's no different. Am a resident of Mumbai, a student. Want a new bike and as usual, confused looking at the market size.
I'll come to the point directly. Have 10 grands (rather 9) to spend on one. Went through the market for the indian brands of Hercules, BSA, Hero, etc. However, none of them matched to what I want. Then came across the Firefox station at Marine Lines n checked their models. The very first thing which crossed my mind (and am sure anyone's will, after visiting Hero, Hercules shops) was little high price. But yes, I liked the bikes there.
So, atleast have narrowed down to the brand of the bike am gonna buy. Looking at my budget, the ones which come under the hood are :
- Dart 2.6 Disk
- Cosmic 1.8
- Cyclone
- 28" Road Runner (18 speed)

Till now have fixed on Road Runner, until went through the list again to see the other 3. Had also seen Fomas's Road King Deluxe, which is for 8 grands.

I guess, you've clearly understood my situation. And don't think need to specify what I expect from you. Any any any suggestion will be of great help.

Thanks a ton for being so patient to read through all this and also for your much awaited comments.

Take Care! :)

I just bought a 28" Firefox Road Runner, and I would anytime recommend it. It's great for both tarmac and off-road surfaces.

Though before buying any bike, it is always necessary to define your objective for using the bike. If you want to fly at Marine Drive, then Firefox is great.

I stay @ town-side. So it's mostly on tarmac road n at Marine Drive. So, it won't be an off-road experience that much. My height's 5'9" and weight 60 kgs.

I didn't you one needs to take care of so so so many points before selecting a model.

And now that all the conditions are mentioned, is there a place where I can understand each of the feature and how will it help me? I mean, what kind of cycles are good for tarmac roads, etc.?

Thanks again for your suggestions! Appreciate it! :)
