    Here are some of the so called “best road bikes” below INR 50000.

    Firefox Mistral:



    An entry level road bike that offers decent components and comes with a good frame design and quality finish is the Firefox mistral. If you are looking for good handling and performance, this bike is what you should be looking at. The bike comes with Shimano Sora group set and wheels with Kenda 700x23c tires. Overall the bike is durable, effective and worth INR 35000.



    BTwin Triban 100:

    The Btwin Triban 100 is equipped with 7-speed Shimano Tourney rear derailleur that offers smooth and precise shifts.


    Btwin Triban 500 INR 34,999:

    A step up above the most cheapest roadbike, the Btwin Triban 500 is made for occasional road cycling over 40 to 60 kms. The bike is equipped with an aluminium frame, carbon fork, Ergonomic handlebar and new B’Twin Ergo Fit saddle for added comfort.


    Considering the bike comes with a carbon fork at such a low price, the bike seems pretty promising. However, the components are not from renowned brands like Shimano and SRAM. We prefer them any day over Sunrace.



    Triban 520 roadbike:



    If you want the best road bike for INR 40000, the Triban 520 is for you. It offers an excellent all-round road bike at a very low price. The bike comes with an aluminium sport frame and a new carbon fork with inserts to attach a front-pannier rack. Plus, the bike also comes with ShimanoSora 9-speed that offers a very good transmission.

    MONTRA CELTIC 2.1 (2017) INR 35,800:

    Apparently claimed to be an affordable bicycle, the Montra Celtic 2.1 offers comfort for endurance cycling. It is equipped with Shimano Claristhat is a mid range groupset and offers good shifting experience. If you’re looking to buy the best road bike at an affordable price, this one should be on your list. You can also upgrade this bicycle later when required.

    Belgian brand,Ridely is a renowned bicycle brand that has been around since 1997.

    Hi

    I am planning to buy a road bike. Confused between Triban 520 and Giant Scr 2

    I have been an on and off rider for around 10 years. Own a 9 yr old Hercules Act Neo (Hybrid). Got back into cycling recently. Ride every weekend, with distances ranging from 30 to 80 Km's, without much problem. Average speed i get is around 22 to 23.

    Age: 34
    Height: 5 11
    Weight: M hefty (105 kg!)

    Planning to get more involved into this and targeting a brevet. Need to increase my speed. So planning to buy a roadie and confused between the above two. Thought i had a decent budget, but it seems you get just entry level road bikes in my range! I can go max 45k

    I stay in Gurgaon. Any good cycle dealers/ bike alternatives would also be awesome. Someone mentioned Lapierre gets good discounts. Not sure, it would come in my range.

    Hi Anurag,

    I ride a Triban 5xx for the last 2.5-3 years. I have done 2 brevets on it (200 and 400 kms). The cycle has held up very well, with no major issues. I made 3 upgrades pretty early - Short Stem, SPD Sport Pedals, and Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres. I started riding when I was 102 kilos and have been at around the 80 kilos mark for the last 1.5-2 years. I don't face any problems riding it. On 30-50 kilometre rides, I can usually ride non-stop and end up with an overall average of 28-30 kmph.
    I have also extensively ridden a Giant SCR 2. That is also an excellent entry level cycle. I found a bit more comfortable (ergonomically) than the Triban. The Triban is a bit of race geometry.
    Both cycles are evenly balanced in my opinion. Choose whichever one is more comfortable.

    For the Triban you need to go to your nearest Decathlon and for the Giant, I suggest that you go to Green Park (Gaurav's outlet opposite the Gurudwara), or the Giant store in Delhi. I suggest staying away from that Ghitorni outlet.

    Cheerios.

    Hi roy_libran. That was awesome info. I am leaning towards giant, as reviews tend to say the frame is quite great. I had a word with Gaurav. He's a great guy! Thanks for connecting! Will go and check some options today.

    Thanks again!
