Greetings from Jakarta, Indonesia.

Hey everybody.

I'm a bicycle commuter in Jakarta, Indonesia. There is no bicycle infrastructure in the city, which makes my everyday commute an exciting challenge.

Been riding for about a year and a half and my fitness had improved significantly. If I had more discipline on my diet I'd probably had lost some weight too

I ride a WimCycle Hot Rod. It's made in Indonesia. Supposedly an MTB but I'm turning into somekind of hybrid.



I replaced the 26x2.0 semi slick tyres with 26 x 1.50 Panaracer slicks which is more suitable for road use. It came with a front disc brake but the caliper broke about a month ago so I replaced them with Shimano Deore V-brakes.

The crankset is pretty worn out and I'm thinking of getting a 48-38-28 crankset in the near future.
