Missed this morning ride to worli.
Thought I'd make up partly at least by riding to work today (today has invariably decided to start only now).
So First ride at this time of the day for me. distance is hardly 4.5 km though.
Ended up starting post 1 PM. took the peddar road-nana chowk-little palms flyover onto JSS road then dadi seth agairy lane to Kalbadevi road.
I think its better to stick to JSS road till we hit princess street rather… Continue

While I too have not been able to attend the CM held last weekend, was just wondering if the CG of the CM needs to be shifted a bit from dadar to say Bandra-Juhu-Andheri circuit?
Also, my assumption is that the maximum impact will be if it is held from 6:30 to 8:30 PM or 7 to 9 PM on the Linking Road-Juhu Tara Road-Lokhandwala Circuit.
Could be totally wrong but worth a try. what say?

Just got my kids bike tires replaced with "tubeless" ones.
Something is just not right. It just seems like a solid mass of rubber which makes for added friction and lot more inertia.
I suspect that "tubeless" was meant to be something else and it has been reinvented to just a block of rubber.
In any case, whats the verdict? tubed or tubeless?

just saw these cycling shorts for 899/-. A company called bigwin or bikewin (french).
It did have some form of padding inside (fixed).
Anyone heard of this company before?

Planning to buy one of them tomorrow, but a bit confused between the Trek 4300 and the Merida Sub 40V. Not a huge difference in the price, but the 4300 is 8 speed while the Sub 40V is 24 speed. Does that make a big difference? (I'll be using it primarily on road, with a bit of off-roading on weekends).

I now share a Hero StreetRacer with my brother. Hopefully, by June 2010, I should have a bicycle of my own. I have been on the lookout through both modern catalogs and some traditional Indian bicycling company catalogs and I thought I should have the BSA SLR.
Going through their website, the closest thing that matched that description was something called the BSA Photon-Ex.
That's the bicycle I'm going… Continue

Its 15 months since Fomas started selling cycles in India, Initially started with low end bikes to understand the market and gradually increasing the range of products to more than 30 different models.
I Had my chance to get a preview the new high end Road Bike to be launched by Fomas
Before I had my first look and the new babe from the stable of Fomas , I had mixed conceptions about the finish quality and the components used.
I was quite taken aback to learn that the… Continue

BikeHugger is a website that I frequent and Mobile Socials
is one of their efforts. In their own words Mobile Socials are efforts at the intersection of biking, technology and culture
There are many places in India that excel in all of these and people who do all of the above. Can we have Mobile Socials in India?

its been almost 10 days since i started cycling. have done 200+ km since then :-)
started with small rides of 5-10 km...now average about 25-30km early in the morning before i leave for office...
the funny part is...u just have to worry about reaching half of your targeted distance...coz when you are half way through, you have no option but to do the remaining half if you want to reach home in time ;-)
