I am from Bangalore & want to purchase a Firefox roadrunner pro D for daily commuting 20 km (up & down). I need suggestion who rode this bike. Please help me. I want to purchase it this sunday. The bike will come 20k+ (18690+.600 for lock+350 for back light+150 for Bell+1000 for helmet).
Please suggest me....Thank you.
I have been using "FireFox Road Runner Pro-V" for last 2.5 months, have done little over 850 km. To me the bike felt quiet solid. Although not very happy about the tiers, the max pressure mentioned seem to be little too low at 50 PSI. But i am going to 70 PSI without any problem. earlier had suffered flats twice due to low pressure, i was maintaining the same at 50 PSI.
haven't faced any problem with the bike till date expect, some gear slips but that was during my learning days when i was learning to ride bike with front d-railer.
overall at the given price point i would not expect anything better.
Note : i am still not confident about taking the bike on light trail. so have ridden mostly on tarmac and paved road only.
Thank you Anand for your reply....every body say firefox bike's components are not good, not durable enough....is it true?
Honestly haven't came across any issue related to durability, believe that should creep-in once the bike is old enough. Mine is just 2.5-3 months old. As far as Firefox components are concerned we have forum members riding over 5k km on Firefox road bikes...

I am using Pro D from last 20 days. Did some 200+ Kms , one 50+ KM ride. Didnt face any problem. Its light and run smooth. Its a good choice at this price band.
Thank you Vivek for your kind reply. Actually I want to purchase this bike for daily commuting near about 30km in Bangalore. Is it comfortable to ride?
Ya dude its comfortable to ride, just get the seat adjusted. and you need to wear a supporter..rest no issues with the bike
hey i have driven road runner pro v and it is better than pro D cause the only difference is about the disk brakes which are not very useful....
