Dwarka Dwellers

Cycling enthusiasts or beginners in and around Dwarka are welcome to join. With wide roads, sparse traffic and considerable greenery our beauiful subcity is a heaven for cycling when compared to other parts of delhi.

"I have got both types, a MTB and a hybrid. My vote goes to the hybrid. As most of your riding would be on roads, this would be better. As for the technical aspects, I think Aaron is the authority! Also see the comments by Dr Suman on this thread."

"My Btwin Riverside is now several months and 700 km old. Its been an absolute pleasure riding this bike. It has given me no problems, has been equally good on roads and dirt tracks. The riding posture and comfort are much better than my earlier…"

"- Fuji is claiming that the Absolute 2.3 has a custom butted frame (lighter without loss of strength) and a higher version of Shimano Altus rear derailleur and a rigid fork. Only put-off is that it has low end revo-shifters. - Merida Crossway 10V.…"

"Nothing is heavy Aaron, Of course it goes without saying that i dont carry all this stuff on local commute of 5 to 10 kms. This is SOS kit for any case. Valve remover is just 12 to 15 gms in weight. I mostly do 45kms plus at a time and sometimes…"

"Vinni, isn't all that a bit heavy and some like the multi-tool a bit unnecessary for commute purposes (I would have put the valve opening tool also but, that depends on every one). - Normally MTB and hybrid tyres are quite lose fitting and can…"

"A very good point raised. But, one still needs to find out where the initial puncture occurred, and remove the cause of it (assuming that it is still stuck in the tyre, even if not, it's still good to check). Upon doing this, one has already…"

"I personally think you should carry a spare tube, it is not bulk and you can get on with your cycling. Fix the puncher at home or destination in peace and that becomes ur spare till next time."

Aaron Court replied to Ganesh Nagarajan's discussion Contents of SOS kit
"No, I don't think that will do the job, it will only cause more punctures with it's sharp ends. There are two types of tyre levers, one is the metal ones used by LBSs and another is plastic ones which are smaller and more compact. It is…"

"I have a decathlon multi tool. Can that remove the tyre? I already have a mini pump."

Aaron Court replied to Ganesh Nagarajan's discussion Contents of SOS kit
"- Try and get the kit by Decathlon. If you find that too expensive, just get the mini-pump & tyre levers online, and buy the patches and glue from any local store. - If you learn how to open the tyres without tyre levers, then you don't…"
