    Those are some really amazing pictures !!! Super-duper awesome! And I can feel what a great trip that must have been!

    Did you encounter any issues with your bicycles on such difficult routes like punctures etc.? Were you carrying any puncture kit or air pump with you?

    Yes; my bicycle tyre met with couple of punctures during the ride; one near narkhanda and the other near tapri. We were carrying spare tube and repair kit along. My seat post itself is a foot pump. Its a two in one thing..

    Wow, I am hearing about such foot pump for the first time. Do you have a picture of it to share if you don't mind?

    And I see that you have gel seats. As far as I know, they are not recommended and it's better to use shorts with padding on them. Any comments on that?

    Here you go;

    BioLogic PostPump

    I had opted for both; Gel seat on the saddle and was wearing padded shots under the jeans; Protection from both sides..
