Im happy to share that I bought a beautiful Dark Blue Firefox Dart 2.6 Mountain Bike on Saturday. 6 gears.
Also got a nice firefox helmet for safety and a nice gel loaded seat cover for additional comfort.
Beautiful bike - looks really nice and is fun to ride - the main idea being to lose some weight and get fit.
Only thing is that I need mudguards (front and rear) which they didnt have in stock.
will post pictures soon.

you would be surprised how expensive the new generation MTB and ATB Indian bicycles are!
While these Indian bikes are very nice, I personally thought it better to go for a basic imported 6 gear bike from firefox.
steel frame, front and rear shox, 6 gear (shimano), compass bell, good quality lock, gel seat and helmet - about 10 grand in all.

Basic Features needed

Aluminum Frame
Front & Rear Shox

Hey, it appears that we share similar tastes. I also own a Honda Eterno as well as a Fiat Palio, except that my Palio is 1.9LD And your post showed up when i was doing a research for the Hercules Ryder. Anyways, do share your review about the Hercules Ryder or provide me a link thereof. I am planning to buy one myself.
