This bike has horizontal drop outs (great for chain tensioning). Nice long top tube, oval down tube, mud guard and rack eyelets.

Zefal composite bottle cage (good for commuting in the tropics)!

Had awful rim tape. Have put in some Zefal rim tape as well. Switched the original Ralson tubes and tyres for Vittoria (GEAX) ones.

When the frame needs repainting, its definitely going to be 'Grunge black'.

Commuting in Pune is mildly suicidal, but am enjoying it thus far.
