Black, White, Wheels!

Got it! The Merida SUB 40-V in Black and White, with a touch of Red!

Rode 15+kms to home. Got the first flat within 5 kms – a sharp nail being the culprit.

Venkatesh was there to help right away – he and Prashant – another rider – fixed the flat in moments. Gotta learn this stuff. Prashant rode back upto BTM – did a lot of pavement riding too.
I will take a couple of days to “slot” into traffic. Gotta get a good helmet, too.

Feeling good – a little surprised how easy the first 15 felt. Am looking forward to both the commute and some serious riding. More pics at http://picasaweb.google.com/get.sameer/Merida

Edit: And I must mention this – what got me started on this journey was BOTS – and Rohan and Nikhil’s infectious enthusiasm and help with the entire process.
