Ah! However, I am using a 11 speed drive-train.

My original budget was only $500 (for a Fulcrum 3/Campy Zonda class). But after all the opinions that if I were to upgrade, go all the way, looks like I will have to look at Fulcrum Zero's price - which is about $1,100 (from Wiggle).
bike discount has it for 630 eur

with the shipping and gst it should be slightly lesser than 1050 sgd

Since last week moi buibui training from Pasir Ris to JB just move into phase 2 i.e 40-50 km range continuous cycling so thought moi try another route around this distance liao

Pasir Ris --> Lor Halus Wetland --> Sungei Serangoon PCN --> Serangoon PCN ---> Tampines Rd --> Upper Serangoon Rd ---> Braddell Road --> MacRitchie Reservoir

To and fro total 40Km and i know can just whack Paris Ris --> Tampines Ave 10 --> Tampines Road then connect to the rest but my route more scenic i feel


Moi found the route actually very smooth until Braddell Road which is not the most cycling friendly but doable

Thanks, sNOOb! Which one do you shop?
Will Polar V650 + HR monitor be useful?

Wanted to place an order for the Fulcrum Zero. As Sadisticnoob mentioned, there was a shipping charge of Euro 22.95. For Singapore deliveries, Bike Discount uses DHL. I was told that DHL will surely impose the GST charge upon delivery. However, if one were to use Wiggle AND choose normal tracked delivery option, there might be a chance that GST will not be charged.

Dilemma...

take note that DHL is german brand name. unless you pay for the super ex shipping, most of the time is german post (destuche post).

DHL has two destuche post (german post) which is like singpost equivalent and DHL

over here they will transfer over to singpost.

SD has ordered from bike24 last time, ship by dhl but sometimes they never charge gst

Bike 24 no gst. Dhl until singapore then singpost.
Bike discount got gst. Dhl until singapore then singpost also. So i dont know how the gst works.
