I nailed down to Firefox Roadrunner or Rockrider 5.1.
i knew people wonder whats confusion b/w hybrid vs mtb.
I have seen roadrunner but i am skeptical if it works off road (not a trekking road but unpaved kacha road)? Also is Rockrider is comforable and easy riding 10km on road?

I see rockrider has 26*2.0 instead of normal MTB bikes 2.125 so i doubt it will be easy on road too.
i don't have riding experience in both, so suggestions please what to choose?

I tried RR5.0 to office and it sucks. As given on in its title "a leisure bike". It is for riding 2-3 km for leisure only.
My requirement is riding >5km and hence I exchanged it for Firefox Roadrunner pro-v.
It is great . It is light, quick and string.
Initially i feared for small tyres but they are great and can handle indian road very well. We can also ride off roads as well however no stunting/jumping.

Yup, I wasn't really sure about it too. But its holding up great so far. I haven't really done any long distance rides but my normal 2-3 hour rides are a pleasure.
I am thinking of grabbing some bar-ends from decathlon other than that its pretty sweet.
Keep Pedalling :)

I wouldn't say Rockrider is bad. Rockrider is great for leisure rides but not for long distance rides. (>5KM)

honestly if u havent bought one yet, dont go for either of them, try schwinn or hercules act110 or montra, much better service and quality.
