    Bhai,

    I don't believe the above comment was sarcastic.

    In any case, I shared the link because I thought it contained useful and practical info.

    I am glad it was source of amusement for you

    Cheers.

    I think this is a very good initiative. Cyclists should gather on this site too.

    I used to ride a bicycle back in high school. It was a 26" Sohrab Mountain Bike... No suspension, no disc brake, no gears. Just a simple yet sturdy bicycle... When I learned riding a motorcycle, the bicycle started to feel too slow & painfull and 'small' (< I'll explain). So I sold it for mere 1,500 rupees...
    I wouldn't have sold it if my height/weight was normal & average. You see, I'm 6'2" @ roughly 109KG, big dude! To put it into perspective, that's roughly twice the weight of an average Pakistani! That little bicycle's nuts and screws would literally 'scream' under all my heft... It's just really sad that now I'm too big for any bicycle, as I always enjoyed riding them...... (Sigh)

    Yes, 26" is the wheel size... It's the biggest bicycle you can get, I think...

    Since we're discussing bicycles here in what appears to be the first time in Pakwheels History! Let me ask you fellows something interesting. Does any of you heard of a PEDELEC?
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedelec
    It's an interesting read if you're a 'former' bicycle enthusiast, like me!
    Those who don't have time to read the whole article; here's a brief summary: A Pedelec is basically a bicycle complete with paddles. What differs it from a bicycle is a small electric motor complete with battery and a conventional throttle you'd find on a 'proper' motorcycle. So, when you need a sudden burst of acceleration to pass that slow moving donkey cart, worry no more! Just twist the throttle a bit and VIOLA! Same goes to steep, hilly roads or anything in between...
    The battery also gets recharged while paddeling in some premium models. While some even has 'regenerative brakes' that you'd find on a Toyota Prius Hybrid! Expensive though, but a great, economical & relatively healthy alternative to a small displacement 50cc Scooter/motorcycle... Finally a bicycle with ZERO fatigue! Technology is a wonder, isn't it?

    I still love biking. I bike here and there in islamabad two days a week in the morning. The best thing is that you exercise and sight-see for free.

    In late 80's, I used to see 'hybrid' cycles in Rawalpindi. Some mechanics were installing a small engine in Sohrab's (or if anyone remembers, Russian bikes ... thanks to Afghan war, plenty were smuggled in Pakistan). These bikes could go as fast as 40 kmph. Sort of giving you a 'turbo' mode, if you didn't feel like paddling
