    Try to check out Trek and Bianchi. They both have a wide range of models to choose from and are very popular.

    Simply look both companies up on the Internet with a Google search. They have great websites, where you can see prices and models.

    Ask Micky Dee  as he writes many hubs on road bike riding and I am sure he would have a tip or two on choosing a good bike to buy.

    Dinesh, if you list specifically what models that interest you and from what company, I will go to their websites and take a look. That's all I can do.

    Hello Dinesh, interesting choices.

    The Cannondale has many reviews, and most are positive, except some customers complain of weak spokes. They call it "light weight," but maybe this is in comparison with other all-round bikes, not road bikes. Seems the Cannondale (8 speed?) is good for commutes, with some limited road usage.

    The Bianchi (24 speed?) is more of a road cycle, it seems to me. Some users say it is light, others don't think so, but maybe here they are comparing with road cycles.

    I drive a road cycle and like the sportier looks of the Bianchi. If what you want to use it for is road training primarily, that would be my choice.

    If you enter the product name plus "review" in Google, you should be able to find quite a few product reviews, which will give you more details. Before you buy, you'd definitely want to compare their specifications (weight, gears, warranty etc.)

    Good luck!

    Hey Website Examiner,

    I compare both bikes prices, bianchi camenolate (Tiagra) costing Rs.48,400/- whereas Cannondale Quick 5 costing Rs.24,700/-.So, My question for you,is it worth to buy bianchi camenolate costing Rs.48,400/-, since my usage is only morning ride.Need your help for this.

    Dinesh, for this limited purpose I don't see the need to pay twice as much. You'll probably be happy with the Cannondale. If in the future you want something more, you can upgrade, and by then you will know more about what to go for.  So I'd say probably go with the less expensive model for now.


    Here is a link to a review page for the Cannondale:

      Website Examiner,

      Thanks for the help. Could you please explain me, what does this mean? "Extras Montague "CLIX" Front QR, rack mounts", i found in that link. it's one of the feature  of Cannondle Quick 5.

    The Montague is apparently to make wheel removal easier. The rack mounts apparently would be to enable you to mount the bicycle to a rack - for storage or transportation.

    Dinesh, this will be my final post on this issue. I wish you good luck and safe riding!
