    Why is size important? Can I (height 6 feet, weight 82 kg) pull up the seat and use an M size or 19 inch frame cycle?
    I’m thinking of buying my first one as used online… and options would be more if it doesnt make too much difference. I will be using it for casual rides of less than half hour… hopefully few times a week. Not yet bitten by the bug, and thus used option 🙂
    With a 10-12k budget, I am looking at the hybrid options with added accessories in place 😀
    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I really liked Montra helicon D, but seems it’s out of stock everywhere and 1 of the retailers even said montra lost their license last year and you won’t find it anywhere. Any suggestions in the same range. My purpose of getting a cycle is weight loss.

    Hi , I am 6.3 ft weighing 108 Kgs, I am new to gear cycling… to be frank purpose is for fitness come daily commute.. lots of confusion between MTB or Hybrid.. Shimano tourney feels if it is good or the only available derailers and shifters with low rating…

    If I choose single speed, it will be difficult for me on cycling over bridges, considering a one time investment please can you suggest me few hybrid or mtb which I can use on poor roads(kind if off road feel) and cycle on bridges steep.. Budget is max 22000..

    Sorry for long posting, I am spending whole day in reviewing various models but feel discomfort what if I choose a 21 inch frame with poor shifters and derailers in end..
