    I don't think there is a website like that for India. None that i know of. Your best bet is to find people in and around your area who can guide you, both for routes and for general cycling knowledge.

    Here in Delhi, i found a couple of groups called PedalYatri and Aravalli Trail Hunters. Best find till date!

    Congrats in advance on choosing a real good bike I didn't suggest the Psynyde because it was way out of your initial budget A friend of mine @driftjockey bought the Furan with the Deore build. So far he has liked it!

    From the experience of seeing quite a few hapless souls on the trails with a Tourney equipped bike. That would have just broken up on the climbs as you gained leg strength. Like i mentioned earlier, trails can be brutal for the bike and rider

    What is the waiting period for the Furan? Have you booked it yet?

    Biking is not about what you have between your legs, its all about how well you use it!!!!!!!

    Give your details here if you want to help your fellow xBhpian stranded in your city

    I haven't ordered. Waiting for may. Need a wee bit more money to the bike fund. Sticking to just a bike,helmet,glove and toolkit for now.

    And psynide doesn't have any distributors in kerala so they will ship the bike themselves.... i might even get it signed by the designer praveen. I called and spoke to him. Great guy

    And anyway...
    Till i get the bike i guess it's a game of waiting and daydreaming i suppose.

    Another thing: psynide is offering a 20% off on the furan. I don't know if it's available for the other states though.

    Thank you all for helping me...

    Forever indebted

    I have an update
    And unfortunately it ain't happy

    Mom got into a high Court case challenging her asst. Prof. Appointment.. so i had to give my bike money to her to pay for the lawyer's fees. So I'm delaying the psynide purchase. But i still need a bike for commutes so I'll get a mach city munich...

    I guess it's more savin time... by the way... the furan is still my target... and sometimes soon I'll try to meet up with the psynide team when they come to Bangalore to race...
