Hell everyone

Please suggest me a cycle for 12km daily up & down for office.

Age – 26 years.


Location of office is not suit me a metro
Bus is not stopping here in bus stand, waiting time is around an hour on bus stand (plus not safe in corona time)
Bike, i don’t have license and i haven’t learned yet, how to drive.

So cycle is the only option, looking for me.
Renting cycle are looking costly as 10rs per hour for a 10 hours around daily

Rent a cycle and check if you can travel that distance properly if you can then buy the cycle or look for electric scooter

Take a electric scooter . No need of license for that. U will easily be perfect in 3 or 4 days of driving. Cycle is not a good option

I go for a cycling daily. Had so much negativie suggestion not to start cycling, But I trusted my guts and started.
Trust me its amazing. I do 30kms daily on a mix of highway and busy road. Few things to consider first though
1 . Cycling is not cheap ( Padded shorts, quick dry t shirt, shoes, helmet, gloves ) you need to invest here apart from regular maintenance.
2. Its all about mental strength then physical ( Trust your guts , physical strength will improve as you ride)
3. Where you are riding (head wind , tail wind, slope , steep, condition of road ) if you are riding in full head wind with steep it will be really difficult in the beginning and eventually you will give up cycling
4.visit decathalon and give it a try(size and comfort matters)
5. If you know a friend working on TI cycle factory , you will get a huge discount up to 50% on Montra(consider shimano Altus and good disc brakes )

Finally , trust your guts its all about you, if you think you have it in you. Go for it blindly. Happy and safe cycling smile

Hey guys, I have an old trek brand bicycle which I had purchased almost a decade ago for 15k…. now my parrots have eaten it’s seat lol and its gears and stuff are quite rusted… watching this thread made me consider repairing it. What would be the best course of action, repairing my trek cycle or getting a new one? Btw please don’t tell me to get a bike because I already have NS200 and considering buying Tata Tiago lol.

Suncross racer star, would cost 15k and is the best bicycle you can get.
It has thin tyres, and is much light weight.
The premium the bicycle, the lighter it is.

I am 29 and cycle everyday atleast 20km everyday. i initially started with 12km and built stamina in 4months. now i dont even break sweat. MOST important part about cycling is riding posture, shock absorbers and brakes.

Make sure you have cycle of right size. I am 5’10" and I ride a 29" frame
if roads are shit or have too many speed breakers, its best to have goos shock absorbers.
Lastly, this is very important, Have disc brakes; front and rear. Everyone drives and walks like idiots, disc brakes are extremely important.

If you are on Budget, Hercules Reloaded is excellent starter cycle. (Front shocks are very stiff)
I ride Cosmic 29" Its an amazing bike with easily removable tyres. I can fit that cycle in my tata nano after removing tyres. Cant do that with Hercules or any starter bikes

A lot depends on road, route and traffic. If it is safe u can opt for it else think otherwise.

Also cycle is not comfortable in rain or extream heat.

12km is not more, but before buying just barrow someone cycle for few days and see, if you feel it’s possible then buy it, most of the people buy in josh but later they keep it aside or sell for very cheap price

Can anyone tell me whether this is a good choice for an upgrade? Getting a used one for 8k. I am sceptical about the frame and especially rim/tyres. Size is correct. Planning on using it for riding 20kms daily on good roads. Have an MTB,(Atom 6 gears). Hybrid for reduced weight.Purpose is to improve health. (Got covid couple of months back).

For 20 km on plain roads it’s better to get one without any gear. Look for 29er MTB. Roadies are good for typical indian road condition MTB is a better choice.

Go with an alloy framed geared bike. Non geared ones will get boring real quick. Get the proper size according to your height. Do not ever compromise on the proper frame size.
