    Post MTB Cycling Tour. Bicycle Lovers Please help.

    Asalam u Alakum.
    Have Planned a Cycling Tour of about 200km From Der khan to Kohat.
    I'll be cycling alone all the way. i want some suggestions on , which Bicycle will be best for such a long route journey keeping the comfort in mind. Cycle aren't that comfortable i know, i am talking about speed and light weight.
    in my view i'd like to get the thin tire wali cycle. like this one.

    but Road isn't that good for thin tires. some places are under construction (election ka door). which i think thse type of tires wont bear.
    a friend suggested Shocks wali cycle. like this one.

    Don't ever go for these so called mountain bikes with shocks.These are too heavy and very hard to paddle.Adhey rastey mei baihosh ho jaoge.Branded light weight aluminum cycle is what u need.Try not to carry too much weight on your back.Water is all you need and a mp3 player to chill during your journey.

    I can be helpful. You will need a mountain bike with aluminium lightweight frame. You can find a used bike for within 10K-20K depending upon the wheels and sets ur getting along. Mostly available in Karachi Jackson Market.
