    Default Suggestion to Buy a cycle (sports)

    AOA
    friends i have budget of 15K. I have searched local market and Chinese sports cycles in my budget range are available. I will soon visit rwl/isb and buy from there. My purpose is exercise and enjoy cycling as well.
    my questions.

    1) wt things to look while buying.

    2) is bike with both rear & front shocks worth buy, bcz others bikes without shocks have nearly same or more priced.

    3) or buy some used imported one.

    The market/shops of cycles in rwl/isb
    any other suggestion.

    Thanks.

    try, try, and try the bike BEFORE you buy it. and dont believe any thing the sales man says like "its hard cuz its new" or "the tires dont have enough air right now" or "it'll get better once it runs a little". try different bikes and you'll get the feeling. i personally believe that, unless you're gonna ride the bike on trails (off road), the standard sohrab bike is best. its practical, cheap and efficient. these chinese bikes are heavy and tiring. if you do want to go for a sports bike make sure its light. contrary to local belief (heavier is solid material).

    @usama. I agree with you that the user should try the bike...but for size.
    @coolsmart
    I am stating personal experience, I bought a Chinese 10 speed bike with front shocks.
    Firstly, the tyre air pressure should be min 40 to 50 lbs/sqinch.
    Secondly it has to be set up for height of seat and handle with respect to your body, there are lot of web sites for this purpose.
    Once its done you will enjoy riding it. I have been using it for the past 1 year and dont have any problem.
    I Dont Drive Fast, I Fly Slowly....
