This bikes specification says it all. Everything is perfect from durable nylon tires to powerful V brakes. The matt red color gives away a rich vibe to the bike. It is your perfect city bike that will give you a comfortable vibe. It is ideal for short distances as the V brake pad is very thin and so it wears off a lot early. The bike doesn’t come with a mudguard, but since it’s a city bike, that too for Indian road, I suggest you get it placed. It gives a perfect casual feeling while riding. This is best suitable for city terrain. This bike captures the essence of your daily lifestyle that leads to cover the short distances with ease.

Things to Keep in Mind

Now, that we have mentioned and reviewed the best among the others under Rs. 10000 budget you need to keep the following points in mind.

  1. The gear bicycles are usually for rough terrain and long-distance. But they mostly refer to above 18 gear bicycles. since it is budget-constraint, the brand compromises on such fronts. for example, the carbon frame is considered best for the geared bicycle.
  2. Also, most of these modern bikes do not come with a ring bell and helmet so you need to buy these basic along with the bicycle. You cannot avoid being irresponsible even for short distance as following rules of the city and for the safety of others too.
  3. You may need to bear the additional cost if you add up disc in the wheel.
  4. The utmost priority should be given to the assembly of the parts to avoid any issues on performance as you might feel rigidity while shifting gears.
  5. I also suggest you be safe while enjoying free roads. Maintaining posture is necessary for a long ride. Go Cycling!
