Chain Mountain Bikes (Kathmandu)
A new showroom for city bikes and BMX bikes has been opened in Patan... its at Bhanimandal (almost opposite DFID) and is called CHAIN. This is started by mountain biking professionals who recognised that there was a gap in the market between cheap chinese bikes, and expensive genuine bikes like Trek or Commencal.
The result has been a bike modeled for Nepal. Its manufactured also in China, but uses quality parts.

Prognosis: Great start up bikes for people planning to take on mountain biking, but unsure whether they will really take it up in earnest. When you realise that this is the sport for you, you will eventually upgrade it, and this is easy to do too.
The BMX is already 'top quality' ready to hit the streets.
Comes with a one year warranty and one free service.
