    MFW Cyclists- Share your experience here along with pics of your rides

    All MFW cyclists,(I hope there are atleast few )
    Please share your cycling experience


    Hi all,

    I'm having this thought of becoming a cyclist for a while now. I thought of getting myself a bianchi spillo rubino rigid a couple of months back but later let it go due to financial constraints. It was retailing for about 18 k in december 2012. Now again the cycle bug has bit me and I'm thinking to get myself a Rockrider 5.0.

    My usage would be to commute 20 kms one way once or twice a week.
    Some long cycling during the weekend for fitness purposes.

    Reasons for thinking about Rockrider,

    1) I'm from chennai and no shop sells btwins here. So I have a reason to take my Punto for a trip to bangalore
    2) Rockrider 5.0 is the cheapest of the lot at 9000 Rs

    Only thing I'm worried about is,

    Is Rockrider 5.0 is as good as Bianchi Spillo? Or Should I wait, save some money and get myself a Spillo?


    P.S I'm not thinking about cycling to maintain weight, as I already look underweight
