Anay's DinoBike

the time has come for anay to flaunt his new bike.
a month back or so he decided that he wants a red and yellow bike. he was bored of his Blue Firefox bike with Popeye graphics

What he wanted was a Red & Yellow Bike. First things first we strip off the whole bike take off the wheels, the chain covers, the pedals etc.

Take some sandpaper scrape off the old blue paint and put a coat of primer with a 2" Brush. Once done with the scrapping off we start masking parts which doesn't need a paint job.

Now Anay moves his studio to the balcony with a few layers of old newspaper spread around and geared up with cans of yellow and red paint.
 
first coat of bright red spray paint
once done with the Red he sprays around yellow on top.

So far i was under the impression that's all he was looking for. but no i was ready for some surprise, he wants graphics on the bike.
Now it's time for his Mom to come into the scene with some black markers and references of Dinosaurs on her MacBook. and Anay wants ugly Dino's not the cute ones.
Anay and Momma making Dinos
Anay is like a painful client and very picky about the dinos to be drawn and he wants them in Black.
What are you doing momma? Do it right.
now we are almost done with the paint job and detailing. time to go back to the neighbourhood mechanic to get the bike fixed.
and here we are presenting Anay's Brand new DINO BIKE

Kill the Monday morning blues

bikes do a wonderful job to get you out of gloominess. this morning was once of those few morning when i didn't feel like going to work (i'm generally very enthusiastic about going to work). good that i opted for the bicycle instead of the car. it took a bit longer but made sure by the time i reach work my spirits are higher and lethargy is out of my system.
have a good week.

Neat city bike. 20" rims good enough to take the potholes of Gurgaon. been a smooth ride to work yesterday. takes just a few seconds to fold down. makes complete sense to commuters.
