I was on my ebike exploratory trip and saw a big entourage of cyclist (20+) at the red bridge to lor halus/Pasir ris last Saturday.

Are you one of them?

I recently wanted to pickup cycling kinda for leisure. So I was wondering whether to restoring my dad's old road bike(i think is a road bike) which he bought like in the late 80s or buy a new bike instead.

No visible brands are on the bike expect some decals of "Shimano Aero Racing Components" on the frame and two engraving on the handle "Jae Chen Custom" & "Road Champion".

After I could it for a ride and an initial inspection, I realised the rear brake isn't working really well and the front wheel have splitted at various area.

So do you guys think it is worth to restore this bike?
might be better to post ur question at this thread.
http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/ea...a-4217945.html

what is ur budget to restore the bike?
minimal, u should change the brakes and tyres, but a closer look at the braking system should be done to make sure safety is there...

Hi guys,

I’m thinking of cycling to work rather than driving once my office moves to a location nearer to my place. However, I have never cycled on Singapore roads before. I know how to cycle but I don’t own a bike so I hardly ever do it. Much appreciated if you could answer some questions.
Distance to work is not a lot, roughly 8km but some uphill. For those who are familiar, it would be along Clementi Road (from Ngee Ann poly to Buona Vista MRT direction). I considered jogging to work but it would be difficult with a heavy laptop.

1. Is it safer to stay on the pavement to avoid cars? During peak hour in the mornings, traffic is very heavy along Clementi Road and is practically at a standstill. How does that affect cycling?
2. I’m a cycling newbie so I don’t know anything about changing gears for going uphill. What do I need to look out for when buying a bike? Is a foldable bike suitable?
3. If I recall, recently there was a cycling death along Clementi road, just outside Ngee Ann Poly. What do you guys think? Is it too unsafe to cycle?

I just bought a mtb from a well known shop in sg. will not reveal yet.

I waited a day for the bike to be "built" because they have no new stock of my size at the shop. But something is fishy. My new bike came with parts all very dusty, inside the bolts and nuts, etc. even the rotor has some kind of corrosion or tanish of some kind. When i check the reciept, the items listed were a new frame purchase and another complete bike purchase. 2 different serial number.

Can i suspect that the shop uses the parts form the display bike at the shop and fitted it onto a new frame and sold it to me as a brand new bike?

when we buy a new bike is it normally only 1 serial number of a complete bike on the receipt?

Thanks
in any case should not have corosion, rusty. you shouldnt accept the bike. which dealer
