      Lightbulb A VFM Bike in Bangalore

      I want an okayish bike for my commute in Bangalore.

      Conditions:
      150cc <=Bike<=20,000 INR;
      2005<Bike<60,000Km;

      I'm here just for 3 months and plan to sell it off by end October, so if any one is willing to let out his unused bike for three months, I'm open to that also.
      Any help to locate a trustworthy dealer/broker would also be appreciated.

      What is the commute distance? Where do you live? Have you thought about buying a bicycle? Since the stay is for 3 months would it not be a good idea?
      It might be good for the below reasons
      1.You need not spend much on bicycle( pre owned ) as there are plenty on sale
      2.Commute distance and the commute time
      3.Initial Investment and fuel costs
      4.Cut down on gym expenses
      5.Going green and helping in saving the environment and so on
      6.Can sell it off when you are leaving bangalore or even carry it along with you.

      Do think about it

      raama: Thanks for the suggestion, you do have a point there. But i don't have a regular circuit, and the routes can get longer on days, so a bicycle, although healthy and all, is not really an option.

      Another best option is to loan a bike from your friend.

      Nobody here knows where I can find an el-cheapo bike in B'lore?

      I am sure there are many folks with un-used bikes on the forum. The question is, do you know anybody personally, and well enough for them to lend you a bike?

      If you are looking to buy one, start with one of the free classifieds sites, like Mobikes bangalore, Mobikes in bangalore, Bajaj, Hero Honda, Honda, Hyusung, Kinetic
