Dear Friends,

I am totally new to this cycling thing and want to buy a hard tail mountain bike but the options are too confusing. I was searching the net and came upon the Unifox brand. Any reviews on this brand?

Aswant.. Think there is a good bike shop in Gangtok which houses all the brands/ non brands which you may want to try.. it goes by the name of Hub Outdoor ..

Thanx for the valuable suggestion. I plan to do mostly uphill and off trail riding so was opting for a hard tail. What u have said makes a lot of sense and will follow them. i think the problem i will face is with regard to the bike stores coz I am from darjeeling and the nearest cycle store is at siliguri and they have limited brands. To be precise, Unifox, Firefox and Trek (Rs 30K) are all the brands i could find and my budget is arn 20k.

Even you can make your own bike and name it "ASKAT" (after your name, for example), host a website and publish specifications, and there you are...........a new kid on the block........a new brand of bike for people to watch and discuss !!!!!

95% of bikes "manufactured" in the world source their components from common suppliers and just assemble the machines......so it's foolish to actually hunt for brands on the net.

The best possible way to buy the right bike is to go to a bike shop and select the most comfortable one which meets your needs and suits your budget. However, don't forget to ensure that the brand you are buying is a popular one and parts are easily available. The most important factor while buying a bike is to match the bike specs with your need : for example, if you are planning for recreational rides with a bit of countryside trails on weekends, a hybrid bike is the most suited. If the surface where you are going to ride is reasonably smooth, you don't even need a suspension fork. A full suspension bike (real MTB) is like a jeep among automobiles......it's of no use in the city, unless someone wants to show it off !!!

Pls feel free to call me on 9731526622 for the right guidance. I'll be happy to help.

Good luck.
