Greetings from an FOS (Fresh on Saddle) :)
At the outset thanks to Tom for a warm welcome note, appreciate it.
I am Sid from New Delhi, India (33yrs), got pulled into cycling by my younger brother who has been keen hobbyist cyclist (& so was i eons ago). Jr. wanted to start riding again and hence get roped me along as well.
I am otherwise into shipping as my full time profession and most of my free time goes to Music & Listeningn to High end Audio systems at friends/dealers & sharing views.
Coming back to cycling, after some bit of Rookie-Research i have got us both the below mentioned wheels to ride on. I just wanted to ascertain how good or bad my decision has been for the purpose of - Riding for pleasure & comfort, not really intend to go off-road big time, unless a rare chance might just pop up. Mostly the bikes shall be driven on mortar streches.
Here are the pics for ready reference:

Much apprecaite the help.
