@heltonbiker: No no...Dad had bought me a normal bicycle (long back). Not the one shown in the pic. But the 'normal' bicycle had the characteristic of a BSO, of the brakes touching the rim even after releasing it. Was looking for a new bicycle, and wanted to ensure I buy a good one, so was interested in getting to know the technicalities. Thanks for all the help everyone! :)

@jimirings: I'd go for 1. The bicycle was built by someone who didn't really know what they were doing.

@heltonbiker: Thank you. I just wish I knew all this before my Dad purchased me my first bike. Will keep an eye out now.

Sorry, should've added more info. I asked the question about fenders because I've seen it on bikes without shock absorbers too: unnoonnygroup.com/image/cache/data/CYCLES/Adults/…

Ok, so how about this bike? unnoonnygroup.com/image/cache/data/CYCLES/Adults/… There's no wheel movement upward and downward.

BSO = en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicycle_Shaped_Object :) I'm amused, but intrigued as well. Never knew. Could you share a few pics of proper bikes and how does one recognize them?

Ok, so in ordinary English, it means that the point of rotation of the black bars is near the pedals. So a shock to the rear wheel pushes the rear shocks in exactly the angle that it is at. What about the mud-guard?
