Zohaib , In that price range the only Hybrid you would get is Hercules Act 110 . Its considered a pretty good bike .

If you're willing to strech your budget then your choices would be Schwinn Sporterra , followed by schwinn searcher etc ...

The mentioned one is good. I bought Count 4 which is wired one. Though I just bought it yesterday along with my RockRider only, I have known people's +ve review on the product.

Will post pics shortly.

Tyre pressure will be written on the wall of tyres also. For mine it's 55 PSI.

Thanks,
Pradip.

This one seems good. I have been using a basic version of Decathlons wireless comp and has held up well for 1.5yrs.

Hi Folks,

Anyone in this forum ever carried a bicycle as checkin baggage from your international trip? Could you please explain your experience dealing with Customs in chennai?

If you every brought a bicycle from outside the country, did you use the cardboard box or you used the special purpose hard or soft cases made for bicycle transport, please through some light.

I'm thinking of Thule or Iron case

Please check this thread BikesZone - Cycling • View topic - Customs duty

Many of my friends have brought bikes from outside. Carry the same box in which the bike came in. Mark the box as *fragile* if required. Hope this helps.
