Hero Hawk Nu Age Review
The Hero Hawk Nu Age is one of the cheapest road bikes available in India. It’s one of the best options for beginners who want a road bike and don’t want to spend a fortune on their first one.
I am in no way a pro-cyclist so this review is only aimed at beginners who want to take a shot at cycling. It’s a superb bike which offers great VFM. In the 3 – 3.5k price range, it is one of the few options available along with the BSA Mach. I had read on a lot of cycling forums that the Hero Hawk was a much better option than the Mach, so decided to go with it.
I purchased the gearless version of the Hawk for 3.2k; will probably upgrade it with 5×2 Shimano gears soon. The bike is very sturdy with good build quality. I had the mudguards and carrier removed and will probably remove the aerobar too; didn’t find much use of it. Needless to say, it looks much better without all that.
Here’s a pic of my Hero Hawk Nu Age at one of my first attempts at amateur randonneuring at SGNP, Borivli.
