    Default Need a Cycle?

    Dear all,

    I have been a cycling freak since my childhood and did it till my MBA. Now after a long time, I am looking for a respectable cycle for myself. My age is 30 years. Many have advised me to visit jackson market and go for an American or a Japanese Shimano Cycle. But Jackson Market is very far away and quite unsafe, I prefer any place within the city.

    Any Mountain Byc would also work. Please suggest for Karachi....

    Thanks, but olx has a lot of jaali cycles. As far as Motorbycs are concerned, I need a bicycle, not a motorcycle....

    Dear All,

    As I asked a lot of people about the cycle purchase, I have bought one for myself from Jackson Market for Rs 19,000. It is half South African and half Japanese. It just feels great, I am loving the ride and enjoying. Cycle enthusiasts in Karachi areas like Gulshan, F.B. Area, North Nazimabad are all invited to forma club wheeby we may organize cycling events in these areas on weekends. Or maybe go to some other areas for longer routes...

    Marida is a good brand but the size you got is small and suitable for a person of height not more than 5f 6in.
    You paid a little more for this bike. The price range for this bike must between 10k?13k. It has nice rims.

    But price doesn't matter as far as you are enjoying a trouble free ride.

    usman bhai remember shook ke koi umer nhe hote na he koi sawari. If any body wants to ride cycle he should must do cycling. Even if any body wants to take taste of rakshaw he should also ride it remember it doesn't mean k woh rakshaw chalane ko apna future bna le I am just saying for to just take a taste. Agar koi quad bike bike chalana chahta hai he should also ride it and like that go on and on to full fill taste on everyride he wants to. I am having two bike and a car phir bhe sath aik mountain bike with gears shifting rakhe hue hai still. Look at china even rich people don't hesitate to ride cycle there yehe hai china ke progress ka raz bhe k sharam cycle chalne mei nhe hote na he koi chota kam krne mei.

    Bro looking nice. You have got a good thing but at higher price at this price you can get an famous bikes like bmx or giant. But if you are enjoying it then forget the price quota and enjoy it as more as you can.
    Btw where you live..?

    Dear Friend, I roamed around Jackson twice and this was the best bargain that I got. We were two people, my other friend bought a racer for 32k. Prices have shot up. You'll know after survey. I had the options between 9k 13k as well, but this bicycle really stood out, as you ride it, one can feel the difference k Yes its a different experience byc. My personal budget while going there was 12k max. but I still managed to get it in 19k as I loved the byc, very light weight and since my height is 5 7, the byc really suited me. I agree you'll get cheaper options, but then again you will be trading some defect with it. mine is clean sweep, just buy and ride kinda stuff.
