    Default Need a Cycle?

    Dear all,

    I have been a cycling freak since my childhood and did it till my MBA. Now after a long time, I am looking for a respectable cycle for myself. My age is 30 years. Many have advised me to visit jackson market and go for an American or a Japanese Shimano Cycle. But Jackson Market is very far away and quite unsafe, I prefer any place within the city.

    Any Mountain Byc would also work. Please suggest for Karachi....

Area, North Nazimabad are all invited to forma club wheeby we may organize cycling events in these areas on weekends. Or maybe go to some other areas for longer routes...

    [QUOTE=munawwar85;5054636]Dear munawwar85
    Many thanks for admiring my Cycle. I am definitely enjoying it and satisfied with it. Need to change its tyres but don't know where to get good ones from?

    I would prefer a Shimano due to my personal liking.

    I can't say much about the availability of carbon fiber frames etc, but my friend bought a Giant brand sports cycle for 32,000 but this is quite some time back. But when you are at Jackson market, and dealing in used cycles, you don;t have much choices. So my advise is to go, search, research and choose a comfortable ride then and there. Let me know if you require any help!

    I am just 14 & already fed with up cycling because i dont have enough stamina to do so.
    Its great if you are actually 30 & riding a cycle.
    Its worth it..I suggest you to keep doing it.
    I dont talk much because my bike's engine do it for me.

    Thanks a4anees. I just turned 34 actually. And yes, its about stamina but above all, its about enjoying a nice cool ride. If you enjoy doing it, then your body becomes a slave to your mind. Now I can do 10-16 kms easily. I am targeting 25 kms one way this year.

    Hahhaah. The idea wasn't dumb at all. All you have to do is push yourself. I believe you would own a smartphone, hence I'll share a tip. Try using an app called Endomondo. Its free. It tracks your cycling, running, walking etc. and you can view the track recorded through GPS and post it on FB as well. The app shows your calendar and tells you how often you've been going outside, and will motivate you. It worked for me. I usually use Endomondo and FitBit simultaneously and am not regular myself, but I do it twice a month and once a week on running. As you know I live in Karachi, mugging is a demotivating factor to leave home many times.

    Dear Munawar,

    Of course I would be pleased to help you. I will definitely try to find the number of the bikewala I purchased from. Will try to post tomorrow. You can call him in advance to settle time and even ask the range of amount he offers his bikes at.

    Secondly I would suggest you to go to Jackson Market anyday, preferably by 12ish and look for light weight by picking them from their center i.e. under the seat. I too did the same. Aluminium bodies are fine too as they are way cheaper then carbon fiber.

    Best of luck with your search.

    Actually i got a motorcycle and now if i ride my someone's cycle i feel my legs are burning and feeling tons of weight on it. :/
    Its really hard for me to do such activites which twist your muscle of any part of body and became "Sust Insaan" now.
    I dont talk much because my bike's engine do it for me.

    Exactly. I am really enjoying my ride MashaAllah. And as far as pricing is concerned, this is how we learn. And for 10k cycles, if someone has the nerves to roam around a lot and do bargaining for hours, my friend, its not my cup of tea atleast. For second hand items, pricing varies from item to item just like in cars. Even though if I would have bought this in 11k, there would still be people criticizing on the high price I have paid.

    Btw where you live..?
