I have a Merida MTB and I needed to upgrade. I chose Specialized Crosstrail hybrid It is a great bike to ride. Sturdy and the disc brakes have never failed me. The shifting of gears is effortless The bike and me understand each other well and I am enjoying the rides. I would strongly recommend it if it is within your budget.
Bought this bike in December 2015 and so far have clocked 17000kms with many international rides too. I love the pricing of this bike which even though runs Claris (groupset doesn't matter for endurance and gravel rides and saves me money when I have to replace cassette and chain) has premium feel like the disc Brakes, thru axle, very efficient hubs, super sturdy rims and tyres that roll super fast (even though 30c).
Special mention about the rims since I have done certain long bad stretches and these hold up pretty well without any mech issues while all other bikes were falling apart with spokes breaking, rim bending, hubs cracking etc.
I miss the 105 groupset a lot sometimes when I like to sprint, and I wish many a times that I must have gone for the 105 variant in the diverge (comes with a future shock). Upgrading groupset in this bike later is an expensive option. So if you need 105, go for the other variant. But all in all, the diverge is a best buy among available endurance bike options in India and I do not repent this even once.
I love this bike. Zero maintenance. Wonderful experience so far. I recommend this bike.
Well built and super sturdy. A great investment if you have a hatchback, sedan or even an SUV. Very easy to install and uninstall.
I don't think you can find better carbon pedals anywhere at this price point. It's too good a deal to let go at this price. The bearings are super smooth and the pedals are pretty light.
Merida is offering some great value for money with this commuter bike. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a high-quality commuter bike that can stand the test of time.
Bought this bike Two years back from... BOTS Jayanagar.... using it for daily office commute and have done long distance to mysore...it is good and sturdy bike....after sales service is nice...looking forward for Group Ride with BOTS!!!!

On thing the jersey does is , it fits perfect and you feel like a pro athlete
Will be great for warm summer days and under another warmers during winters. This is exactly what I bought it for so am happy with the item.
Good value for money
The freaking allen key has 13 functions - All size hex keys 2,3,4,5,6,and 8 and chain breaker :) and also super light
The grip while using the product feels confident unlike many other multittools in the market .
The tools are easy to fold out, plus they are even labeled so you'll be sure to use the right one.
Overall, a great tool which you can carry on the ride
Fairly durable and long-lasting. Felt that my shifts were smoother with this chain compared to my stock chain.
I have been using the reload for 2 years now, I can never imagine riding without this with me :) Tastes good and also helps to ensure you are constantly hydrated while riding
It’s been 6 months since I have been using this product while training for cycling.
It is easily digestible and provides instant energy. The strawberry and banana flavour is good is my fav :) S
Great product, been using it for almost 2 years now. Works perfect !! Using it constantly for commuting and lasts for almost a week in blinking mode on one charge
Best part the light has many modes, surely will make you visible from meters apart :) Very robust,water proof too
True value for money!!!
My first cycling bottle was suggested by my buddy, he said you will not get disappointed,I was like its just a bottle how does it matter?
Once I started Using the m i realized
- This bottle fits well on my bottle cage and has a good shape that is easy to hold even at speed. The flow rate is sufficient for a quick drink
- Good quality, robustly made.in so far as, it doesn't leak and works!
- A simple functioning proven design and easy to clean.
- Super fast deliver by the team Bumsonthesaddle
I’ve had armadillos on the front and back of my road bike for over a year. I’ve done approx 5600kms cycling.
I wanted to avoid those flats you get when you’re out with teammates! You know, when everyone watches you, you feel like which shit tires i got !
In truth I’ve avoided a single puncture, hence it does what it says as I’m concerned! I’m looking to buy new ones for this season .
Hands down the best hardtail money can buy. Super agile and probably weighs less than my roadie. It comes tubeless-ready out of the box which was a huge bonus for me. Additionally, the fork is super plush and can take quite a beating. I would definitely recommend the Specialized Chisel to anyone looking for some offroad fun.
I bought these tires as an upgrade to my stock set on my bike. I was very happy with my purchase; zero flats ever since and no discomfort over rough terrain.
I've been using Garmin products for a few years now and I've never had any problems. Super robust and reliable. I must also mention that the device is very easy to use while riding and battery life is great - what else could you want?
This bike is an absolute engineering marvel - haven't ridden anything as fun and nimble as this yet. The bike just keeps going even when you can't. For the price, I don't think I could have bought a better bike.
A super effective drivetrain degreaser that doesn't require too much elbow grease. What's great is that the degreaser can be reused and still be effective.
Off-road and fast-paced, the Specialized Roubaix Pro tire also offers a great deal of riding that gives good corners
.Also highly puncture resistant tyres, lasted me for almost 8000+kms of riding.
Great value for money!!
After getting a bike fit done , i was advised to go for a narrow handle bar of size 38mm, I came across these and I thought I would give it a try,
This HANDLEBAR is truly remarkable, because the shape and profile of the top provides excellent hand position and support for the wrist when rising above. Many signs to ensure that the switch is configured correctly.
One of the best direct-drive trainers I have ever used. What I love the most is the rock & roll feature which no other direct drive has in the market - kudos to Kinetic for providing a grat trainer at this price point.
Such a fun little bike. It's pretty well built and is of perfect size to ride around in the city. Once folded you could stuff 3 of these in your trunk and go wherever you wanted for a ride. I love how nimble and fun to ride it is.
Probably one of the best cycling gloves out there in the market. Super comfortable and durable - never had any numbing issues that I used to have prior to using these gloves.
Shimano CN7900/7801 10 Speed Chain Pin
Great product also value for money too, wax dry lube avoids dust and dirt attract to the chain also avoids to an extent at wet conditions too.
Works to an extent does save some part of the body😅
I give 5 star, it makes my bike look cool
Always been a great fan of Cateye products from the day 1 when got my bike , my first light was a volt 300, later upgraded to volt 500 and this has not disappointed me for almost a year after riding so many brevets day and night operating the light is very simple, has different modes, I usually ride in the blinking mode has it saves battery. most of the other lights require a mount to put the light on and it’s a hassle to take it off but volt 500xc has a rubber strap that is secure and easily can be mounted on other bikes.
Been using this for many years now. The rib cage is very light, it holds the bottle tightly so that they do not fall of while riding on bumpy roads. The cage also has a cool slot for multitool integration.
I do not race, I just love to ride my bike and have my gear ready. Always had my eyes on this on this color and I got it. The shoes are incredibly light, the Boa dials do their job of keeping the shoe secure and fixed, and the ability to fine-tune them on the fly is awesome. The toe box has plenty of room, The power transfer is breathtaking and the grip around the heel is amazing; there is no slip whatsoever
Comfort riding posture to make it more comfortable has saddle and handle bar grips ecupped with "Body Geometry" by Specialized , ecupped with solid tyre no puncher issues, can be converted to normal tube tyre too in future which could make the ride even softer.
Why would someone pay 9600/- for a jersey?? Being a major specialized fan decided to get and see what difference this jersey makes vs any other brands - it is very breathable, and I never found myself overheating and dripping with sweat during max efforts. The jersey fits very well on the body and I feel like SAGAN sometimes while riding with it. The central pocket has a zip in the back which is sweatproof for mobile phones and electronic devices and also has a little hole for headphones too.
