    Default Suggest a good bike around 80k.

    Hi guys,

    My budget is around 80k & want to buy a road bike. I test-rode few bikes, like Trek 1.5 & Bianchi Niron Alu Carbon. trek 2.1 wasn't available at that time at the firefox store. But i m considering Trek 2.1 instead of 1.5 as it comes within my budget. trek 1.5 was good but bianchi was better. As bianchi costs 80k & not sure about Trek 2.1, But it should be around 70-75k. Is Bianchi superior than trek. pls. reply by ur experiences.

    Thanks in advance.

    Exactly my reaction too! Who says my R15 is over-priced

    @Thread starter: I'm not sure if any of us here have knowledge about bikes, as in trekking cycles.. Add an engine to 2-wheels, & you'll get numerous replies..

    The pleasure is when your rear wheel slides, and you bring it back; and when the front wheel lifts, you take your time bringing it back.

    @ thread starter: Trek anyday bro... friend owns one and is a pleasure anyday! If you like the strap on pedals that is. The Gears are the sharpest i've seen and can vouch by them anyday!

    P.S. He often complains about the stability in crosswinds... not sure if it helps!
