A bit about myself:
Active cyclist only since 2012. Still learning a lot. I had used vintage BSA Mach 1 road bike a lot. I have used Btwin Riverside and Trek 3700, all given by good friends who encourage biking. I have designed and built a cruiser bike once and want to experiment with that more. Recently bought a second-hand Raleigh Terrain 30 and sold it after a year of use. Now, I am having Hero Rover 29er.
