How many times have you been ready to ride, only to be confronted with a flat tire? Well, our Alibi wants you to be pumped up to ride, not busy pumping up your tires. That's why it comes with tires that don't need any air at all. That's right, you can kiss your pump goodbye, and more importantly, you can say goodbye to ever having a flat tire again. We also designed an anti-rust chain for this bike that removes the need for regular dirty, grimy maintenance, plus a super comfortable Body Geometry saddle. The Alibi is always ready to ride, so consider it the perfect partner on your path to a fitter, better you.

The bike has been ridden 300+ kms in the past week by me. It is a great hybrid which serves the purpose of a good urban commute in the city. It can handle semi-gravel environments well but due to lack of suspensions and a solid tyre with no air, causes major vibrations while holding the handle which needed me to get a gel padded glove for long rides above 25kms. I might shift to pneumatic tyres for the same reason after I have used the present ones.
The bike's gear system is such that the jump from 2nd to 1st gear is huge which is also visible looking at the gears. Instead of 7 gears, a 9 gear system would be better suited. The same might be my next investment.
I am quite fond of the riding stance it gives which is conducive for a brisk pace.
P.s. - Just took one star due to the time it took to ship the bike from the warehouse i.e. 21 days. It reached me after 25 days in total. The same fact should be told to future customers outside Bangalore lest they feel wronged by the time taken for the bike to reach.
Hassle free, light, can ride in any terrain - thanks to the puncture free tires. Does not hurt your back even if riding for relatively long distance.
I love this bike. Zero maintenance. Wonderful experience so far. I recommend this bike.
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.
