A huge congratulations to @kiiishorekumar for taking the podium at the @bangalorebicyclechampionships Epic Nandi Road race. This is the most coverted road race in our annual racing calendar and he swept it on his Specialized Chisel 😳πŸ’ͺπŸš΄β€β™‚οΈ The same bike and the same legs also took top place at the @great_malnad_challenge that concluded recently. Luckily that was a mountain biking event 😬

We're super proud of the lad, not only cause he was a part of our team interning at our bike shop but he also rides one of our best bikes, the Chisel from @iamspecialized , and is raking in the podiums πŸ†

@pixelartiste next to his prized Kona Dew from @konabikes.

It's been a month since he upgraded to the Kona and has seen a marked improvement in his riding - overall speed as well as the distance he's able to cover - "I'm able to easily hit a surprising 45kmph and do distances over 50km which were practically unthinkable earlier. Being a UX designer, I love the cool retro looks of this bike! Love my Kona Dew"

Fantastic! This is what we love about good quality bikes - they amplify the joy of cycling and deliver so much more than just a ride.

We have an uber wide range of Kona bikes at our bike shop. We also ship across India incase you don't have a @bumsonthesaddle near you. Get the full BOTS experience delivered home!

#techtuesday We've been investing time into servicing suspensions and we're all set to tuneup or overhaul most suspensions in the market - front forks and rear shocks!

An old Gary Fisher came in for a complete overhaul and had an interesting RockShox Pilot front fork on it. A single sided coil with air assist, the front suspension is now butter smooth when it needs to be, post a full fork overhaul by @bnravi1644

Need some TLC for your bike's suspension? WhatsApp/call us on (+91)88611-77008 πŸ’ͺπŸ˜€
