Hi,

I am looking to buy a geared cycle for fitness purpose. Would start with smaller distance and planning to do atleast 20 Kms per day, mostly city driving.
I have researched online but couldnt pin point on particular brand. One thing many suggest is to have Shimano gears.
I looked for Montra/Roadeo/Firefox/ couldnt finalize a model. I’m from Bangalore, so not necessary to buy online, i can visit offline store also.

What size should i buy 27.5T/29T?. 26T looks bit small to me.

Height: 5’4"
Weight: 67KG
Budget: within 20,000/-
Purpose: Fitness

Fat Tyre will exhaust you more as they require more energy while peddling

That is the reason professional racers prefer the slimmer tyres. It takes too little energy to drive.

Ideally if you are under 5’6" you should go for 26T.
Above 5’6" to 5’"10 it’s 27.5T and finally it’s 29T.
Shimano is a top notch quality brand. Also make sure if possible club it with mac wheels heart_eyes_cat

1. Don’t get rims like the one pictured above.
2. Fat is comfortable but no difference in smooth city roads. If you do a lot of off-roading or in roads where it looks like filled with loose stones and bricks then get one.
3. 27.5 T is best for handling and 29T accelerates the most.
4. My bro is 5’4 and he is using a 29T non geared cycle from Ninenty One DefeatR model.
5. I’m still with my ridley trailfire 1 ( 27.5 T ).
6. Also has one Waltx Dune 4 fat bike. It’s bulky and weighs around 22KG. Had done 120+ Kms trips multiple times on this and all of the above’s biggrin

No matter which one you go with if your saddle is not comfortable then prepare to get butt burn after say 50 Kms … ( may differe from person to person depending on fitness level ). Then you have the inner thighs muscle loosing flexibility after a long ride. If you are planning on trips upto 50 Kms then every one is good.

you can blindly go with decathlon cycles if ur looking for longevity. ur budget should easily cover the cycle and accessories

Last year I bought a hero cycle 26T my height is 5ft10’ .It is comfortable but my friend bought from olx for less than half price. You can check olx this would give you more options as normally after few months we don’t cycle its like a kick we get for little periods to use cycle.

The similar options available in Bangalore, offered by multiple sellers in OLX. They are imported and can be bought for around 10-11k if you bargain.

Yes Bro, was checking is OLX for more than a month now. Few good cycles available, but there are quoting as high as new bikes. They might have bought it for a higher price.

Bargain hard as markets are opening prices will come down fast also because of monsoon season. You can also go to cycle repair shop nearby they are also selling old cycles with warranty.
