Q: How did you get started on Mastermind Bicycle Studio?

I started Cycling as a hobby, after completing my MBA from Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies.

In 2014, I cycled from London to Paris with a group of 20 UK citizens. On that ride, I matured as a cyclist, and I got a first-hand experience of how much cycling has evolved in the European continent, and across the world. I got to know the accessories and components to choose for competitive and enthusiastic cycling, and I got to understand the nuances of cycling.

On the 4th Day, when we reached Paris and standing below the Eiffel Tower, I thought to myself, “I am going back home, and starting a bicycle shop!”

I had no expertise in either the sport or the business of sport. All I knew was that there was a huge gap in the Indian market for the availability of the premium products of the cycling world and the correct practices of cycling.

At the time, I was working with my father in our family business of manufacturing zinc oxide (me being a chemical engineer). I am eternally grateful to my parents for allowing me to pursue something which was completely offbeat from the family business.
