RockRider 5.2…

My latest acquisition is RockRider 5.2.. Yeah Yeah people are saying you are crazy, you have gone nuts, Have u seen urself in the mirror, Why are you driving a cycle when you have a CAR and bike.. Its a damn good cycle with gears and a nice experience to ride a bike again.. The idea of buying a cycle and using it regularly was @ my head for a long time.. Guess now its a reality.. All thanx to loki bhai.. He was also planning to buy one and we got a good deal @ decathlon located in Sarjapur road.. We decided to go on a sunday as his friend CSP had a membership card. We all met @ Silkboard junction and went ahead in a bus. Though initially i had thought ill buy a 5.1 version but later after hearing to CSP and a bit of comparision finally decided to buy the next version..
