So let’s dive right in the Btwin Mybike Review
The Btwin Mybike cycle comes with a simple frame design that’s very old school. The frame is made from Steel and is suitable for those above 5 feet. Mind you the btwin mybike is available only in white colour but offers different frame sizes right from S to L.
The frame is also equipped with a simple rigid fork that comes with a lifetime warranty offering you an upright position.
With the btwin mybike you can ride without causing a lot of stress on your back on the tarmac and rugged roads.
At the price of INR 4,999/- the btwin mybike cycle comes with an extremely comfortable saddle that is a bit wide and offers good cushioning. If you are looking to ride longer, we suggest buying a gel seat cover or wear cycling-specific shorts.
This will help you reduce the spanking drastically.
Braking is given equal importance as any other bicycle part on the btwin mybike. Equipped with Helical spring V-brakes, the brake pads work well in wet or dry conditions. Besides, the brakes are so soft that you can easily brake using just two fingers.
Considering the poor road conditions in mind, the btwin mybike comes with standard 26inch wheels that are made from aluminium. The best part about having aluminium wheels is that the overall weight of the bicycle is reduced and do not rust over a period of time.
So if you do intend to keep the bicycle outdoors, you don’t need to worry about the wheels getting rusted during monsoon.
At such a low price, you will get a simple bicycle with a single-speed drivetrain. As a beginner, gears can be very confusing and in such cases, single speed is just fine.
Besides the drive train is designed in such a way that you can ride of slops and flat roads easily.
So if you are looking to buy a bicycle that offers value for money and can be used for daily commute and fitness purpose, the Btwin mybike is just perfect.
