Mountain bikes are the most common types of bikes you are likely to see in India. It’s not just because they are ideal for the poor Indian roads but also because most of us love riding on different terrains.
An affordable mountain bike will be good enough for easy trails and off roads, but if you like it rough, be prepared to spend a good fortune.
