"Hey, noticed your bike rack... Kinkiny racing? Where did you get it from? Is it good? Stable? Universal fit? Expensive?"


Hi Aman, yes, the Kynkyny RR1 from Vivek. In one word, its Perfect. I had to wait for 9 months before he sold it to me. Vivek insists on doing the installation at his place and kept warning me about it, but I kinda managed to convince him that I'll be able to manage the install. I had installation hiccups (As he had warned) but nothing that I couldn't solve.

Picasa Album


Purchased it directly from him, and he had it shipped it to me be courier. Cost me approx. 15k. for two bikes.


Its very rigid, and I have tried it with two bikes loaded , and faced no problems.


Universal ? Not really - that's why he insists on doing the installation. You have to tell him which car you got.

Yes, been using it since a while now. Have kept the spring tension at the most soft setting. Enjoying the rides. Only one fall till date - moron Auto Rick driver cut in front of me suddenly, and then stopped immediately - had no chance at all to un-clip.

Going clipless soon !! Earlier experiment with Look pedals was aborted after a fall too many. Hope the SPD is easier to master.

Oh! No, thanks for the offer but I'm currently in love with my 4300 and I'll think about an upgrade once I'm able to get more time to dedicate to cycling :) Good luck with the sale.

Excellent bike and absolutely excellent photographs from an excellent camera :P (EOS 5D Mark II). How much for the bike and the camera? :P

Btw, what photo do you specifically need? Not sure I understood from your message.

Handlebar is a 44. I can put in an Sette Anatomic 42 there if you want. Bottle cages - I was going to pull these and put them on the other bike. I can toss in a different pair for the price or include these at cost, if you want.

Crank - nope, cannot change, unfortunately. The compact double is what I have. 50/11 is more gearing than you'll ever need: if you spin out 50/11, you should be in an aero tuck instead :)

With your stated inseam, the bike should fit very well. You may need a longer stem, actually - I have a 90mm on it. See how it goes but you may want to swap it out for a longer stem.

Btw, email me at vk at vanditkalia dot com -> faster than exchanging messages here.

5'10" to 6'0" should be the correct fit for this bike. It is a M. I am on the taller end of the range for a 56 (I should be on a 57-58 as per most fit calculators) but I fit b/c I like a very aggressive fit (5" saddle to handlebar drop).

So I dont see any reason why it wouldnt fit you. What is your inseam?

I wont be able to give it to you until early Sep, when I am back in India.

And the bars - yes, they are very comfy. Google Ergonova Pros for more info.

I got it on clearance, and got all the parts of Ebay separately and built it up myself... which worked out to be a lot cheaper.

The same bike, new, on CC will run you about 1.3 or so.

I got the Ridley in April this year and started riding it in May. Have about 4000km on it, all on very smooth Middle Eastern roads. No crashes, no falls, no impact :)

Yeah, I can wait a bit... dont have any immediate buyers anyway. What bike are you selling (am definitely not in the market for another one, but curious) - the Willier? Those are just sexy bikes!

I'd pick SRAM over Ultegra. Functionally, all the SRAM stuff works the same - the only difference is in weight (and Rival doesnt have zero loss shifting for the rear, something you only notice if you try Force or Red) and Rival is lighter than Ultegra.

Full bike weighs around 7kg or so. Frame is 1100gm.

No, am not selling the 40mm carbon wheels - I can include them, if need be, but it will be extra (Rs 40k or so). Am selling it with a pair of Planet X wheels (1600gm).

I am riding an old steel Ritchey Breakaway on a trainer in my room. I do about 1 hour per day of structured workouts (intervals etc.)

I would like to ride with you sometime if you want. Perhaps laps of Marine drive in the very early morning would be OK...I'm not sure. It's a bit of a worry from a safety perspective.

Hi Aman,

Thanks for the kind words. Not to worry, he will get educated one day. Perhaps when he steps into the big leagues. Right now he's just a big fish in a small pond.

Where are you riding? I'm in Worli, I ride indoors on a trainer. Any chance of a good ride out doors?
