The Giant SCR 2 and Speedster 40 are both great options.
Currently every manufacturer has limited stock in India. So you would first need to check what is available in your local bike stores.04/08/2021 at 16:33 #5875adminAdmin

Hey. Here’s a bunch of responses from our friends. Hope these insights will help.
Giant SCR 2
Scott Speedster 40
Trek Domane Al2
Scott Speedster better fit and finish
Giant is not VFM
Java bikes are good but heavy
Giant. Because it is the best option which is available
Java is too aggressive
Scott light frame components and it’s also that Scott is very durable
Scott Speedster 40
Better service in India. My rule is to buy bikes from stores who owners ride bikes themselves
The build quality. And the service provided by the company. Java bikes are good yes but they are very heavy. Personal experience 😢
In my view
Cheap and best to buy and maintenance
Even if u do any mistakes in maintaining or riding style
Can learn everything with low cost…
Java Siluro 2
So one if my friend has it…1 st thing its good buy woth money..i think within 80k sora and aero..paint job..and when i ride it, i felt good..
Java Veloce 2. VFM. Great frame, good components. I ride one.
Scott or Giant
I had used both Scott and giant they r much more lighter than Java. As my friend is having a Java
Mr Varun Jain
Never ever go for java.. Giant would be my first choice followed by Scott
I owned Java Veloce, it was not comfortable for me. Too much committed posture. Claris groupset is not smooth. But build quality is good. Slightly heavier for a road bike. Ended up selling in 3 months. Now I have Scott Hybrid and I’m so much happy. Also consider Convolution bikes and Scolarian bikes for custom geometry. You can have same geometry as your hybrid:)
Giant or the Scott. Might be partial to the Scott. I liked its frame when i rode it.
Eat neet ride repeat
Scott Speedster 40
Go for giant or scott coz they r a good brand and better than java
Explore da unexplored
Giant scr2. It’s wheels n it’s endurance geometry. Java is not that reliable. If anyone is having 1st road bike then endurance would be preferred unless he/she wants race.
The Sun Appearing
Java Siluro 2/ Giant. Giant because of its structure and geometry. And S2 for being aero and lightweight. Triban 😍.
Scott. Have heard good reviews. Brand support is awesome. Components wise also it’s really good!04/02/2022 at 23:54 #6519Anonymous

I think Giant scr2 is the option better than others.16/01/2023 at 12:01 #7547Jimish42Member
I’ve used a hybrid bike for about 5 years. Almost all on the paved road. The paved road here can be a bit gravelly some times, so the slightly wider tyres are useful. I blew out two tyres in the first month, then none for about 7 years, then two in about a year. I’m assuming that a these kind of pure road bike would be a bit more fragile in that respect. The bike I have would not be good off road, the wheels are a bit big and the tyres a bit thin. But it is fine for rough road.
