    Hey

    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.

    Scott Speedster better fit and finish
    Giant is not VFM

    Java bikes are good but heavy

    Ashley
    Giant. Because it is the best option which is available
    Java is too aggressive

    Raunak Thiroti
    Scott Speedster
    Scott light frame components and it’s also that Scott is very durable

    Better service in India. My rule is to buy bikes from stores who owners ride bikes themselves

    Annyunn
    Giant SCR2
    The build quality. And the service provided by the company. Java bikes are good yes but they are very heavy. Personal experience 😢

    Feel_onwheels
    Java Veloce
    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…

    Bohemia_garage
    Java Siluro 2

    Java Veloce 2. VFM. Great frame, good components. I ride one.

    Dhruv_viji
    Scott or Giant
    I had used both Scott and giant they r much more lighter than Java. As my friend is having a Java

    Adeepwagh
    Scott Speetster

    Mr Varun Jain
    Never ever go for java.. Giant would be my first choice followed by Scott

    Yogesh Pilankar
    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.

    Go for giant or scott coz they r a good brand and better than java

    Scott

    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.

    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!

    You can choose the following

    • Tommaso Imola Endurance Road Bike
    • SAVA HERD T800 Carbon Road Bike
    • Tommaso Monza Endurance Road Bike
      They are the best choices.

    I think Giant scr2 is the option better than others.

    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.
