theoretically moi should go faster by 1mm/revolution now rite? since the wheel got "bigger" after straightening

That why I prefer non disc brake bike easy to self tune I buibui so my wheel very easy go out of tune I always self tune from taking hours to tune now within 20min can done but of course my way not as prefect as the tuning stand

Actually, it is been a while since I rode. But one of the main reasons I avoided riding was heavy bicycle. It was dreadful to carry it out and into the house. It took quite a lot of effort to cycle to speed as well.
If you're riding on the road suggest you gain xp first...roads during peak hour not for noobs ..

If you really want fast the fastest is always road bike with thin tires

I only get my cycling stuffs from Chapter 2 Cycle and MBS cuz they always give discounts. But most stuffs are bought from Taobao.

But for newbies who don't buy their bicycle from them, they will charge full retail price.

For maintenance/tuning, I will turn to Scootz.

For my Brompton maintenance/mods, I will go Brompton Culture at Sin Ming.

But for newbies who don't buy their bicycle from them, they will charge full retail price.
Most place have to ask for discount... but then again I rarely shop in sg . Most of the time buy online and even so I don't let lbs fix my online stuff.

Its hard to lock a folding bicycle. The wheels and seat-post can be easily stolen...
Can lock but quite inconvenient

Use u lock to lock wheels to frame

Use seat post collar irregular size bolt to lock seat post (like inches Allen key bolts)

Anyone ordering from Bike24? Am thinking of getting a Bryton 20.

Saw Sn's review and it looked pretty decent.
