That's a neat budget.

What's your usage?

i'll ride
90 percent on road
10 percent off road

You don't need to spend that much then.

Check the Cannondale Quick series.

Same as me. But the 10% off road that I go for is pretty crazy. That's why I bought a light MTB with fast rolling (Kenda Small Block 8) tyres.

how is trek 1.1?

That's a road bike. You need to spend upwards of 40k for a good one, though Trek 1.1 is pretty ok.

That said, the Quick 5 is an excellent bike and is total Value For Money (VFM).

Quick Tip: I'm 5'3" and Cannondale's size 'S' frame fits me perfectly. So IMO Cannondale would be a good choice.

i'm planning to buy schnell rover.

Hey, the Schnell Rover is an MTB.

For your usage, a hybrid will be easier to use.

As I've said before, you have a neat budget, and should look for quality bikes like the Quick 5.

My frank suggestion: Go check out the Rover, test ride it, then do the same with the Quick 5. Also try Trek 3700 and Giant Revel 0 if you want an MTB.

See if the bikes have sizes that fit you. That's the most important.

NOTE: Many people on this forum have had what I believe are baseless arguments with me, but I'm only trying to help here. Don't buy a bike based on looks, buy for functionality. I'm even willing to have a discussion in the inbox to help you out. Message me if you want.

I am not trying to force people away from the Schnell brand, it's just that I feel they need to make more informed decisions.

90% road usage and you buy a MTB?     How does that work?
