Dear Praveen,

As per my research I think you should go for a Hybrid Bike... while Rockrider 5.0/5.1 is a MTB, I went for it as I got a good deal and was in my budget.

For a height 5' 6" I think M size frame should do - 18" frame should be ideal.

Just ask yourself, why do you need a Bike? If the answer is > Take it to office occasionally, try to use it for commuting to frnds place or around less than 5 Kms & make it a point to go for rides Everyday / weekends - The Hybrid Recommended!

Hybrid bikes recommendation:

Firefox Rapide - around 10K +/-
Hercules Act 110 Plus - 13500
Firefox Roadrunner Pro V - 15K +/-
Montra Blue - 18K +/-
Montra Jazz - 17K +/-

Higher end Hybrid:
Schwinn Spotera - 24K +/-

If you want Rockrider 5.0 it Costs you 9K at Decathlon Store & 5.1 costs - 14K
Both are MTB bikes weighing[masked] KG & 14.02 KG respectively.

If you are looking for a Second hand, I have couple of offers which came to me but since there was height issues I could not go for it.

1. Nalin: Hercules Act 110 Plus - @ 10 K - ([address removed])
frame size 16", you may have to increase the seat height.

2. Tarachand: ([address removed])
I have a bike and is in very good condition. 
Make - Fire Fox
Year - 2012
It's placed at my residence at jubilee hills.

3. Sanjeev Sharma  <[address removed]>
Hercules, and comes with front and rear suspension, puls 3 front and 6 rear gears.
it comes with front and rear mud gaurds plus the rear carrier.
5K

4.
Arvind raman <[address removed]> 8K
Rockrider 5.0
with helmet, lock, rear lights, pump and a single glove.
This is a good price & something which will suit you... L size.

5. Shashank Tyagi <[address removed]> 
due to relocation I have to sell off my 1 year old Schnell fly. Its standard 7*3 gears based with front disc brakes and nice suspension. Let me know if you're interested. Selling price is 6K.


Good luck!

Happy riding!
Sudheendra

Dear All!

While I thank couple of quick responses... unfortunately the deal did not work out due to Size issues, and high pricing!

And the Good News is that, I was able to get a Rockrider 5.0 at a good price! Xavier @ Decathlon Shamshabad, was nice enough to offer me a deal!

BTW, those who want to try out can check out Bikes & Accessories @ Decathlon stores... Most of the products - Bikes & Accessories are being sold at good price, lesser than that reflecting on website - Almost the Wholesale price!

You have bikes @ 4K - My Bike (non-geared) & Kemel(?) Geared starting @ 8K and Rockrider 5.0 @ 9K (its 10K at other places)

I hope to Join the guys @ Trimulgherry starting this Thursday!

Best regards
Sudheendra

ACT 110 comes in only one size. For 5'3" I'm not sure. Nalin is around 5'5" if I remember correctly. For him it's a good fit

I've got Hercules Act 110 plus, sparingly used since I've been away most of the time. The price would be 10k.
