Mumbai Mirror started a poll on 3rd June with a title "If city roads get cycle-worthy would you use cycles to travel?". Respond was gathered through sms, (MTPOLL leave a space and send your opinion to 58888). Also you can call and leave your message. You can also email to The final result was published today of the poll.
Please note poll is over...

And it was a very positive poll result.
Amazing to see 90% of people voting yes for using cycle if it was worth and why not European and Western countries are an example.

on the other hand Mumbai Mirror has started a poll for existing roads. Now i wonder even if cycling lanes come up in Mumbai at some places; It will be a dangerous situation if the cycling tracks develop pot holes.

Hi! Any new events coming up soon? said...

We are in the process of consolidating a distribution deal with Create Bikes UK to import and distribute the bikes for them here into India. These bikes are amazing. Fixed gear, Low maintenance, crazy colors and such rad designs.


They are the scourge of modern bike fashion actually fixies are almost nothing but fashion. In this fast moving world where fashion is playing an increasingly important role in setting and reflecting culture and tastes.

Fixed gear track bikes have become affiliated with the streets of New York and are the latest influence to arrive from America to the UK as well as in the streets of INDIA.

Fixed gear bikes give the rider a better feel for the bike and exercises your legs more than geared cycles.

Riding fixed gear gives you a better connection with the bike so you can get more control making it very popular in cites like New York and London.

The track bikes have flip-flop rear hubs meaning that you can switch back to free wheel riding when you need to, and with front and rear caliper brakes, it is designed to be safely ride-able in the cities.


Why would anyone do that?

It is not easy to put in words; there is an almost mystical connection when you ride a fixed gear. You feel a closer communion with your bike and with the road. There is a purity and simplicity to the fixed gear bicycle that can be quite seductive and so much fun!

Have a look at the 2010 range on our website: and feel free to pop us a mail.
