Looking for a good MTB under 17k. My Height is 6 feet and weight around 85kgs.

Hello Everyone.

My name is Nitesh and I would be a new rider from Delhi. I am looking for a good MTB, specially for my weekend rides. I hit the gym regularly and the motive behind opting for a good cycle is to tone up the muscle mass along with thighs and legs. My budget is around 17k and my height is 6 feet with 85 kgs weight. I am going to buy a bicycle for me anytime soon, but before that need some suggestion from fellow riders. I have liked btwin 340, but can consider any other good option as well. Please suggest. Thanks in advance!

Nitesh, have you checked the proper size for your height. There are 4 sizes which are small(S), Medium(M), Large(L), Extra Large(XL). My height is 5.9 so have chosen Large frame which were for people height ranging from 5.8-5.11. I believe you must check XL and hope you have test ridden the same which you are pointing out. 

Apart from that, my best wishes for you..

Thanks alot Mohan for such a detailed explanation. This is quite informative. I have tried Montra but the frame looked to small to me. I am 6 feet and found their frame too small for my height. Btwin 340 looked very comfortable to me, specially the sitting posture. The  bike is best in the range and have almost decided the same. I have a budget of 17k and 340 looks best to me.

Hi Nitesh,

   I was in same position as you two months before which includes budget and losing some calories. In my list the cycle models were 1)Montra Rock 1.0 2)Montra Rock 1.0D 3) BTwin Rockrider 340. I was much fond of Montra Rock 1.0 and read good reviews about the same . While I was arranging money for it, i saw a Montra Rock 1.0 cycle which was parked in my frnd's apartment and went near to check it. The Cycle was good but the rider was not keeping it properly cleaned. I touched the frame just to see how it feels , it was good but when i went to Decathlon to check RR340 i just fell in love with the finish level of the frame and by the moment i touched the frame i could feel how well the finish level and paint job . they were very nice compared to Montra( It's my opinion, others may think different) and apart from that , all Btwin cycles comes with Lifetime warranty for Frame, Stems and handlebars which has again added more value for RR340. So Finally i have chosen RockRider340.

But there are few things which i don't like in RR340. 1) The seat is not very comfortable but we can change the comfortable seat which may cost from 400-1000 rs.

2)It doesn't come with Flat handle bars , again we can change it with spending around 700rs. It depends on person to person how it feels. so if you are buying rr340 then ride for many days and see whether it is comfortable or not. if not we can change it. Do note montra Rock comes with flat handle bars.

Apart from this RR340 is one of the best entry level affordable MTB as per my opinion which doesn't mean that Montra is bad. It all depends on personal preference. Just checkout Montra cycles and sit and see how comfort it is . If possible to test ride, please do and see. Same goes with Btwin RR340.
