    If you can manage to come to Karachi,go to Jackson,there you will find best bicycles (after a full day khwari) in about 10k-12k like bridgestone,miata etc.. ,original japanese cycles,China & local made ones are just junk infornt of those japanese made.

    Well to tell you the truth I was intrested in buying a bicycle in 2003.Since I Reside in karachi I had 2 choices


    a)Lighthouse


    Here you will find pakistani and chinese made bikes.They will be new and they will be carton packed or dabba packed as they are referred.They will be of various colours and the shopkeepers will tell you that this xyz is copy of this bicycle etc etc.they will even show you booklets which they have managed to get thiet hands on.I didn't give into thier rubbish and decided to do some research.I then went to what they call as the finder's gold area aka (also known as) Jackson market.You never know what you will find there


    b)Jackson market


    Here there were 3-4 shops only hence they have got a huge monopoly.They took me to thier warehouses located behind the main market and there were really good brands,bridgestone,raleigh,shimano,sankie to name a few.I liked a bicycle named shimano.I asked it's price and they told me that they were going to give it to me in 10k final.


    I came back,did some research and found that the shimano company of japan makes the most dependable gear sets.And the bike in question was all shimano.made in japan,It even had the plate(tikli) which had got written on it "made in japan".


    I then talked with my driver(a pathan) who told me that he would make me a reasonable discount if I took him to the place.I took him and he went and did some talk and he managed to get the same bicycle for 6500.Strange isn't it.If you have got any pathan friend maybe he could help you out.


    If intrested i am willing to sell the bike.I will upload the pics.I hope I have been a help.To tell you some specification


    its an 18 speed gear bike,Seat needs to be replaces.light and dynamo are there.New tyres from installed nearly 1 year ago.The bikes colour is orange.26" is the size.

    [quote]


    Gears are calculated as 7*3 =21 / 6*3 =18 and so on. For 21 gears configuration you have 3 sprocketset in front and 7 in the back. Break all the rules and Buy from Ferrari it will cost you arroung 7000 USD. and you will get light weight 2-3 KG bike and loaded with Disk Breaks and shock observer for your comfort.

    Hi There

    To be honest any decent branded bike will not be remotely close to your budget (9K). Branded bicycles are just like cars and motorbikes, so you can have really expensive ones (made of titanium/ carbon etc) and very very basic ones. You will be surprised at the prices of top non-professional bikes, they can be well over couple of hundred thousand rupees.

    Anyway choices available here is very limited. All bicycles sold here are very poor copies and mostly chinese or Taiwanese etc.

    Regarding the size, Not sure what you mean by 24", that must be wheel size, as 24 inch frame is going to be huge for anyone unless you are well over 6 feet. If you are 15, than 24" wheels will be too small for you, the full size wheel for all mountain bikes are 26" and thats what you should go for.

    Shimano is a Japanese brand, but they don't make complete bikes, just components. So the bike described above is most likely just a copy as well.

    Your best bet is to take along someone who knows about the bikes and just go through what ever the shops have and hopefully you will find something half decent. My guess is you will have a much bigger variety in Karachi.

    Make sure you are clear what you need the bike for, off-roading, on roading etc. Avoid bikes with shocks etc, they make them heavy and slow and only of use if you are only doing off-roading jumps etc. Avoid big wide tyres , again they make bikes heavy and slow. Most bikes these days will come with 3 sprokes in front and 6 or 7 gears/ sprokets at back, so 18 or 21 speed, most of these gears are useless and never used.

    Good Luck!!

    @YZFR1: thanks for the info.Now what is called as "classic" cycles -Raleigh model was much sought after in India for many decades due to it's superior build quality compared to ludhiana cycles(Punjab state).Raleigh stopped production in India end 1980's.


    Now "V-Desi" Raleight Cycles are Available in India-Imported.these are high end models costing from 10,000 plus to Lakh Indian Rupees made on costly materials Firefox is another favourite Brand. Current Trend in India is ,Many Indian Cycle manufacturers started selling electrical scootters for women folks el cheapo; that is around 20-30K range.


    A-One,Atlas Cycles,Hercules,BSA,HERO etc are Indian Brands.Hum to purane zamaane ke hogaya bhai!I always liked what was called as "classic cycles".Lekin Aajkal Cycles ko "bikes" bolte he bachche log! Gear wala cycles chalate he ... Indian Cycling Forum: http://www.bikeszone.com/forum/search.php
