Thanks for the response.

Any idea on the MRP for this? SGD1.4++?

Any other recommendation guys?

What about Giant? *random thoughts, still a noob with the brands and stuff*
the GT bike will cost less then 1k..

yes its possible with 2nd hand parts.


BRAND NEW XT full group is minimum 1k. crank 300+ brakes 300+ ( excluding shifter, rear-dee, fron-dee,wheelset)... xtc frame about 600+? rockshox maybe tora ? another 400+. things like handle bar, headset, stem, tire,tube,chain, build up cost and workmenship.. i just build up my bike last few months so, i can roughly recall what to look out for.

Bicycle shop for folding bikes

HI,

I am new resident in Sengkang and saw many cyclists here.

Looking at buying my first folding bicycle. Carrefour sells the Aleoca brand for about $100 - $300.

Can anyone advise me if these Aleoca are ok priced fgor their quality, or are there better buy elsewhere? If so, can give me some name of the shop I should check out.

Thanks

aloeca is really cmi if you plan to go to seruous riding. not sure bout foldable bikes, but i belive a quick search at togoparts will give you some hits.

For folding bikes, you may want to check out brands like Dahon. I own an MU SL and I have been liking it . They do have cheaper ones in the hundreds but not compromising on the quality, in my opinions. Hope that helps.
