"Stretch after, not before.   Stretching isnt the same as warm-up and studies have shown stretching before exercise hurts performance."

"Gel cushions - bad.  Counter-intuitively, a harder saddle which provides support at the correct places is going to be more comfortable than a gel saddle.    More padding is never the answer."

Hi Vandit,

I was looking into buying a surly LHT. I stay in mumbai. Since you already own the bike i hope you won't mind helping me out with a few queries:

1.Did you get your bike imported/shipped/picked up from singapore/USA or did you route it through a dealer here in India? Also in case of the former did you set it up on your own?

Do you know of any surly Distributors/dealers in India? The site lists none.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Vivek

Never expected to see anyone from Andaman. Where in Adaman are you located? I grew up in Port Blair. Did my entire schooling there  (83 to 95). Last visit was way back in 2000. Lot of people tell that the place has advanced a lot. I wonder!
