Don't worry. The thin tires on a hybrid will hold you up :). At that range, I'd go for the Hercules neo ryder. But if you want to go in for an MTB, go for Rockrider 5.0. You can get it at discounted rates at Decathlon store.

Hi, First identify your purpose.
If you really go for off roading on trails, then only MTBs are worth.
If you want for city riding(indian roads with pot holes and little off road), my strong recommendation is hybrid (herculues neo/firefox roadrunner/schwin sportera) etc.,

I tried RR 5.0 to office for 10 kms and it sucks. Those bulk tyres are not worth for city ride.
luckily i had exchanged with Firefox roadrunner. It is great and solid on off road as well, given no stunting or jumping.

If you are 6 feet, hercules act 110 will be small. The RR5.0 might get very uncomfortable for taller chaps as the saddle to handle drop ( for size L) would be a quite a bit.
