Nice. All new well-stocked cycle stores are welcome.

Do you have the wares displayed in the store also listed somewhere online?

Visited this store today. Spent over 30 mins at the place and discussing with the proprietor Mr. Yogesh Bajaj. The store is nice and densely stocked with Firefox and Trek bikes. Also you will find a good amount of bicycle accessories.

Also, I was surprised to see a Firefox hybrid(their first) called Roadrunner. Seems this is a newly released model as is evident since there is no mention of it on their website yet. It is an alloy bike, with 700c tyres, front shocks, full mudguards, and a 6sp Shimano tourney(?) gear with a revo shifter. I spoke to a person from their warehouse and he said that this bike is a 20" frame - a first again by Firefox. However, even after raising the seat post to the max level, it was short by an inch or short. Seems the bike fit calculations were right and I need a 22" frame to be comfortable.

Now for the tasty bit - the Firefox Roadrunner was priced at Rs. 8800 change.

We also checked out the Foldman(is that what it is called?). I was expecting a much smaller bike, but this was fairly well sized and quite impressive. Seems a very good deal for the price of around Rs. 8500.

How tall are you?

Nice - now if only they would make this as a full rigid bike, with no front sus.

Wow !!!Malleshwaram has a mall !!! Back in 2002, I had a brief stint in Banglore as an assistant Architect, I used to stay on 18th road. It was such a sleepy and traditional place by then. I chose it for the exact reason. Been a long time. Must visit Bangalore.
No one gives it to you. You have to take it.

Am 6 feet tall. Legs being slightly on the longer side (as is evident by why I find it so tough to fit into the drivers seat in 90% of the cars).

So am I.

You dont need a 22" unless there is something seriously messed up with the bike's seat tube. A 19-20" frame would be ideal.

Basically, I raised the seat tube as high as possible. Got up on to the saddle, and the balls of both my feet easily touch the ground. As I understand from the cycle fitting articles that I read, the feet should make a minimal angle at the lowermost position of the pedal crank. So, while seated on the saddle, I suppose my legs should be completely off the ground. Am I right?

Sort of. When you are in a sitting position, your knees should be bent in by approx 30 degrees (ie, a 150 degree angle between your thigh and lower leg) when the pedal is at the lowest position. Then tweak in small increments till you find the sweet spot.

If you cannot raise your seat high enough, the problem is likely the seatpost. If you get a larger size, you'll also get a significantly larger reach, which is going to be very uncomfortable.

To put it in perspective - I have a 21" frame, which is on the larger size and which I have gotten to fit me due to careful selection of components (it was a well thought through process with advice from a specialist in order to fit my riding style). A normal 21" would be way too large, and a 22-23" would be ginormous. On a stock, typical-geometry bike, I feel happiest with a 20" frame or so.
