DIY - Mech Disk Brake alignment

Okay, so I tired to service the Front Forks on my FF Viper ( , but that project was shelved (wisely).

Since I'd already dismantled the front end, I decided to rectify a nagging problem with the front disk brake. The FF Viper has a mechanical disk brake set, with a 160mm rotor (… Continue

Mountain Biking in North Kerala

At a point in my 80km day one ride through the mountain in North Kerala, I had reach a point of exhaustion and pain that questioned the very reason why I liked biking and what the hell was I doing here?

Just then a view opened through the forest that showed some spectacular back waters of a dam with Kerala highest mountain kissing the clouds in the back ground. Taking a break and enjoying the view made every effort of that mountain climb worth it.

Organized by… Continue

The Joy of Cycling

The Joy of Cycling

(1800 kms cycling)

Madh or what?

Sunday Jan 3, 2010. Drove out to Kandivali with my bike contortioned inside the car, to meet my friend Porus Jose. Biked from his home to Madh island and back. Our first longish ride really. It was a big leap for me, perhaps not a giant leap for anyone else. Super! We should have strated earlier in the morning to avoid the trucks and buses shaving our sides and honking enthusiastically at us. My SIX SIX ONE helmet was a great comfort.

Picked up 2 kilos of prawns on the beach at 200 chips… Continue
