    Default Bicycle buying Help !!

    Bicycle has became a dream with variety of model, brand now available in market and price just made this ride a luxury. So I thought I should try one. Waited waited to maximize the budget and stock a pure showpiece in my collection. So who are the pro-cyclist around here can suggest me the best in market with a detail compare you do know. Give me a cheat sheet why one is different from other and by what hardware in it.

    My use is limited to journey to my office and back to home. But consider the ups and downs of Bangladesh road, it is worse then any off-road experience.

    Price range is max 44K !!

    Brand and model I summarized is Format Zor 33, Format Meteor or Meteor 2012[I don't know if both are actually same], Format TerPro. If anyone knows the individual price of 3 in recent pls. write in. Beside this 3 you can suggest me any other if you think they are excelled in performance then Format. Thanks
    Example ::
    .......................------------- ---------------- ------------------- ---------------
    .......................Format Zor 33 |Format Meteor | Format Meteor 2012| Format TerPro |
    .......................------------- ---------------- ------------------- ---------------

    I wonder what makes you so allergic to cycling @all whinners

    you dont like it, dont buy it. stay away from the thread. simple. Does seeing your post removed, makes u feel better? i hope not.

    Dun bother ppl who happens to have a different interest than urs.

    1 single OT after this post will yield an instant infraction

    i was pointing at ppl who were posting OT. Not at you.

    if u have any spec sheet post that. that mentions all the part list like rear/front derailure, fork, chain, front shock

    but im not a pro-cyclist. I'm more of a casual type who happens to ride usually on weekends/holidays.

    @Metal format Ter99 looks quite good to me. pretty much all components are above avg grade.

    but doing self maintenance on the hydraulic brakes is a PITA for new user and to some extent even for existing users. But these brakes are amazing to use.
