Greetings from Indonesia

Hi all, this is Peter from Indonesia!

Earlier this year I restored my 10-yr old Dahon Espresso (just before the pandemic) and have been riding the bike around the town - for exercising and also for grocery shopping.
It's crazy to see the pandemic bike boom here - suddenly many people pick up cycling and rushing the bike shops to get their bikes - but I do hope the trend sustains.
I'm sure we could see more cycling-related infrastructure here in Jakarta if people continue the cycling habit after this pandemic,

Anyway, I hope to know more of the people here!

Cheers,

Thanks all! I have browsed around the forum for some times but finally decided to join aboard so I can participate in the discussions.
I also note that there have been many changes over the 10-year gap, like my bike is still using freewheels while nowadays the industry seems to have moved to freehubs. Need to familiarize with this and looking on option in case I need to change any parts of my bike.

Welcome!
And, yes, the bike boom is crazy. But I’m into it!
Really liking the increased numbers of fellow cyclists out there.

Hi onionsmasher.

Am a living testimony of this. Fellow Indonesian here who just picked up cycling during the pandemic. Turns out I've been missing this my whole life!
