Cycling for life and My story of life.?
Hi All,During my childwood i puchased Hercules MTB i used this very roughly from 8th std to 12th std.I was totally fit and enjoyed my riding each day , this was the basic model without any gears but i used to ride for 20kms every day. (1993 to 1998). My cycle was my life at this time.Later in 2002 i entered the software profession i was fit healthy and muscular, but down the time this stamina got declining,My friends and readers(Other Software professionals) will know why it happened to me?Reason : Sloggin and working on computer for a long time. Life style totally changed i used my car and 2 wheeler for most of the transportation.I was really embarrassed and depressed reg my health and my situation, but I never found a way to overcome this, but I always used to repent on this.Then on one day i thought i will commute to office by using cycle.I took Hero Hawk (With out gears) for communting from office to home, i rode this for 1 month, but i used to put lot of efforts on cycling.Later i developed back pain because this cycle was not a perfect design for my bodyâ€™s attributes(iam 100 Kilos and 5â€™7") The seat of this bicycle is really patheticI donated this bicycle(Hero Hawk)My health started declining onceagain daily i used to think weather i will survive or not for the another 1 year.I started doing Yoga and Brisk walking now iam fit and energetic now i love myself and have pride about myself .After 2 months i wanted to go for a bicycle once again but but this time i did a lots of research on bikes and came to know that i have to use a good bike(BICYCLE) where in which the efforts for pedalling should be very very less this and this are all my findings.Hero:1) Octane DTB1 (5500rs)2) Octane DTB2 (5500 rs)3) Octane Nv (5500rs)4) Octane 26t (7500 rs with speed brakes)all the above models have 21 gears.Hercules Models1) Hecules Turbodrive2) Hercules wow(18 gear ) - 5500 rs3) Hercules Wow -(21 gears with speed brake) - 7500rs4) Hercules dtb4 -(21 gears but a heavy vehicle)-5500rs5) Hercules DTB5-(21 gears aluminum bike ) - 6500 rs6) Hercules Fusion (6 gears) - 3500rs7) Hercules fusion whith shock absorbers(6 gears) - 4000rs.Trek Models1) Trek 3700 ( 17000 rs )2) Trek 4300(22000 rs +)Merrida1) model 12) Model 2the prices of merrida is same as trek models.FireFox1) Basic Model with 6 gears starts from 6000 rs+For me i dont wanted to invest a large amount for bicycle, because if some theft happens i would repent a lot then i dont wanted to go for an international or imported brand because of maintainence issues.so i choosed 2 indian Brands1) Hero and 2) Hercules.With the review comments that what i have read in the internet directly i rejected hero brand.My inclination started growing with hercules. and i decided to go for any one of the below bikes1) Hercules Wow (18 Gear)2) Hercules dtb 5(21 gear)While commuting to office with my Petrol Vehicle i always scanned the roads for this higer end bicycles i found a couple of riders with Hercules Wow. They gave me the best feed back reg this Bikes.Then i made my mind to buy hercules WoW (18 Gear)- 5500RS.To make this decesion i have done mining on the different category of cycles.The feedback from various people who were using Hercules Wow is amazing. i will be purchasing this bicycle at the earliest and i will presume my cycling journey of my life once again to keep myself fit , energetic, active and to build stamina.I have done lots and lots of research on bicycles.Below are some of the links you can look in to (Because i have used this links for my initial research)http://groups.google.co.in/group/Bangalore-bikershttp://www.bikeszone.com/http://www.bumsonthesaddle.com/mountainBikesIf you still require any other info or want to make some decesion you can mail me back or call me up.This is my number 9916487474All the best for other who are venturing for getting new bicycles.
