Different Types of Cycles

  1. Road Bikes: Meant for city roads. They are fast and nimbler than Mountain bikes. We assume most people are going to cycle in the city, so this is our preferred type of cycle to recommend. They have thin tyres.
  2. Mountain Bikes: Mountain bikes are more rugged than road bikes. They are meant for off-road use. They can also be used on the road. They have thick tyres.
  3. Hybrid Bikes: A cross between road and mountain bikes. They offer the best of both worlds and are a good option for those who have both off-road and on-road cycling to do. They have thick tyres.

How to Choose a Cycle

1. Where will you ride your bike?

Do you need a cycle to ride around the city? If you will cycle only on roads, then a road bike will do. If you are you a fitness enthusiast who wants to bike off-road, then a hybrid bike will work.

Bike TypeSuited For:
Road bikesRoads, pavements
Mountain or trail bikesDirt roads, gravel roads
Hybrid bikesPavement/road and moderate gravel/dirt roads

2. Price

You need to have a budget in mind before buying a bike and getting your expectations clear. A rough estimate of the quality to get in relation to the price of bicycles in India:

Bike BudgetBike Type (for adults):
Under Rs. 5,000 Basic road cycle without gears
Between Rs. 5,000 – 10,000Decent quality road and hybrid cycles with gears
Between Rs. 10,000 – 20,000Good quality road/hybrid/mountain bikes
Above Rs. 20,000Excellent quality road/hybrid/mountain bikes

3. Gears

Simply put, more gears = more speed. If you are fit and want a challenging cycling experience with rough terrain like hills, then opt for a cycle with more gears. If your terrain is flat, then you don’t need more gears.

4. Frame Measurement

If you are a tall guy, you would need a tall cycle. Check this guide to know what frame specifications are ideal for you.

Always check the product page before you buy a bicycle. Or if you still can’t understand, go to a local store and understand all about sizes and what suits you.

5. Overall Ride Quality

This is the last but probably the most important and this can only be checked after you ride the bike. We recommend go to a local bicycle store and try out different bikes. Note down the models and the names and buy it online during a sale.

That way you’ll get the bicycles which suit you at the best price.

Best Cycles under Rs. 5000 in India

When you are buying a cycle under Rs. 5000 for an adult, we recommend a single gear cycle because you will not get a good cycle with multiple gears in this budget.
