Extremely pleased with the purchase of a Rs 4800 "Fomas geared racer" . The cycles tyres V/V/'s are excellent, akin to 'Motorcycle tube v/v's",and its a month since purchase that i haven't replinished the "tyre air"! I previously owned a "Hero Hawk" ordinary racer which served me faithfully for over a decade, my tourist vehicle in Bangalore and Mumbai. The only defect with this cheap and strong cycle was its outdated "tyre design" which got punctured frequently, hence, besides inconvenience, it also cost me a lot of tyre renewals. Cycles in India have really improved in design and innovation, the only hurdle is now the public road acceptance in peak hour traffic as also special "Parking lots" for cycles.we Indians are now getting the best of cycles on par with " First world country's" something unthinkable over a decade ago when i purchased my "Hero Hawk". Hope the "Post Economic Liberalisation-1992" cycling generation produces a "Tour De France" competitor from India in the not too distant future. Still better, India holding an annual International cycling road race annually with "Prize money" equivalent to the millionaire sport that cycling actually belongs to in the developed economies.
