You are better off buying known brands/bikes
Schwinn has a bike or two in that range

It is much better to buy brands of repute when one spends anything above 12-15k. it is upsetting to see guys sell bikes assuming we cyclists will not know whether the brands are from germany or timbuctoo!

There are some good brands currently available in the market , Trek, Schwinn Merida , Scott, Bergamont . If you are in Pune go visit nachiket at Lifecycle. A better place to invest your money in Pune than most bicycle shops

i ride the Schnell dynamic1 and i love it.. the one thing where it edges over the GT is the front disc... u get pretty good quality for the price u pay... however the bike is superlight n comes with on/off road tyres...so decide where do u wanna take it.. if u plan serious offroading..go for something like a Trek.. i saw some opinions here which i dont agree to...just coz u dont know abt it doesnt make it bad.. and dude! i m 5'9" n 80 kgs...so the 80mm shocks work well for me...for u i d suggest 100 mm shocks.. bottomline..if u r in Pune.. go to Life Cycle in Swargate..they have a large collection... try out what works for u n negotiate... even if u dont buy..atleast u d have a fair idea what works for u... cheers dude

Hey Guys,

I'm very new to cycling, recently bought Schnell MTB rover 1.0 for 18k two weeks back and I live in Hyderabad. I ride it daily to office. All I can say is its a very good bike with so much of features with dual disk break with alloy frame, self lubrication, 3x8 speed, front shocks. These features you won't get in such a price in any other brand. My route is very hybrid with full uphill, downhill, and flat roads, so I get to ride it on different terrains and its very comfortable. I'm totally loving it. Its worth the money ;)

Baby Jesus wept at the idea of fork travel (80mm vs 100mm) being based on rider weight.

A few candles of information, in order to banish the darkness of ignorance on this thread:

1/ No Rs 15,000 bike is going to be made in Germany or anywhere except China. Period. You want made in Germany? Think Rs 2 lakhs or more.

2/ Fork travel is based on the size of hits you plan to take, not based on rider weight. You adjust the sag of the fork based on your weight.

3/ There is no such thing as "self-lubrication".

4/ The more features you have in an entry-level price, the crappier each feature.

Try reading the What Bike to Buy FAQ (no, I am not going to give you a link. Find it yourself, it isn't that difficult)
