Require opinion on a new bike

Postby k2s1 » March 11th, 2013, 12:02 pm

hi Guys,
I have buying a new hybrid bike. I will be using it to for long distance riding, but it would usually be on roads.
My budget is around 12-18 k. Please let me know if there is any other better bike that you would recommend.

Below are some of my choices, not sure if they are good.

1) Montra 2012 blues.
2) BSA Hercules Riders ACT 110.
3) Firefox RoadRunner Pro-V
4) Firefox RoadRunner Pro-D

Thanks.

hi Guys,

I have looked at the different bike brands and i have shortlisted below Hybrid bikes, my budget is below 15K.
Need your expertise to suggest which one is better.

1) Firfox roadrunner Pro-V or Firfox roadrunner Pro-D (is there any better version available)
2) Hercules Atlas CTS 110
3) BTWIN Riverside 1 man(is there any better version available)

Please let me know if there is any other better bike available in my price range. Hoping for a positive reply.

Thanks.

Skip firefox , hercules , hero etc.

Search around the forum for reasons why.

Also skip btwin riverside 1

Montra is ok but you can get something much better by spending a few extra Ks.

What is your location?
2013: Honda Amaze (Ultimate upgrade).
2013: Rockrider 5.0

Increase budget to around 22-24k and check out

Khs vitamin B
Kona Dew
Schwinn sporterra
scott sportster x70
gt traffic 3

If you strictly cannot increase the budget or these bikes are not available in your area then you can either get

montra blues/jazza 16-18k + accessories.
La Sovereign navigator 13k + accessories.

But these bikes will not be in same class as the above bikes. Also remember you will need to spend some money on accessories too.

If this is your first purchase i will recommend you go for

Rockrider 5.0 (9.5k) + Slick road tires and tubes ( After your first ones wear out.. 1.8k) + Helmet (~1.5k) + Lock, light , pump , puncture kit, saddlebag, fenders etc (3-4k) = Total of around 16k
2013: Honda Amaze (Ultimate upgrade).
2013: Rockrider 5.0
