Trepidations of an amateur cyclist on his first ride.

The going was great. I set out at about 3 pm to Narara which is a bird sanctuary near Jamnagar. The total distance from my place being around 26 kms from my place. Started off well, armed with my spare tube and pump, helmet, tool kit and all. Nice pleasant ride, but mainly on the road so I set about to check the MTB out offroad. Went on a dirt patch which was handled well, the shocks kicked into action pretty good. But still have'nt made out exactly how to control the lockout of the front… Continue

Hi Ajay

I see that you have / had an Avon cycle. Can you tell me which model and how is the bike? I am also considering buying Avon.

The next step is to change tires without using tire levers. Bare hands.

Hi. Thanks for the friend request. You could check with the airline about the size of the bike box and charges.

I am not sure of the width of the 3700's rim. Subject to that, you can fit pretty slim tires. Sheldon Brown's site has a chart showing what tire widths fit what range of rim widths.
Locally, I have been able to find 1.75" tires. However, Evans cycles stocks even 1" slicks for MTB rims.
That would make the 3700 more like a hybrid. But for something like a TFN, I would prefer a full fledged road bike with its drop handlebars and road ratios.

Well Ajay ....i have changed to tyres of 1.7 thickness/ width & there is a good improvement in the drag ...the fact is that unless one wants to do serious offroad riding the tyres provided originaly by manufacturers are useless on city roads , i have tried communicating this to their showrooms & distributors as well as the sales offices of those manufacturers ...they dont understand the need of riders & insist on selling their bikes with those fat tyres ( which consume a hell lot of excess energy ) , the best ones will be 1.4 width high pressure practice tyres which serve well on city roads as well as some off roading .

Orbea promises to give custom fits as per customers requirements lets see how much they actually do it ???

so i am in search of suitable tyres of 1.4 width ...will let You know as soon as i locate them & you too reciprocate :))
