Hi guys,

I made a short film about fixed gear cycling

https://community.zooppa.com/en-us/c...d-gear-cycling

I hope you guys can have a look!
The part about fixed gear racing not being legal : is it because current legislation in SG needs a bicycle to have at least front brake to be street legal?

Hey buddy, I'm close to your weight but I spent more on a better quality foldie, got myself a travelo FS-S at $889.00.
get a mountain bike. There are also foldable type.

130kg on a tiny foldie will look very weird. Pls

Sounds reasonable but do test out if brakes, gear shifting and wheels fairly true when u test ride Oh and make sure correct size for your height/inseam

Thanks for the advice, a used ATX 27.5 2 is selling btw 300 to 500. I checked giant website and it recommend a M size frame for my height, how do I check if the wheels are true?

lift bike on one side (top/bottom) if the wheels seem to wobble side to side excessively it's untrue

I am thinking of cycling to work, office at concourse beach road. I saw there are bicycle parking areas at basement carpark. However, not sure how to enter the carpark from outside. Is it the same entrance as how cars go in?
Anyone cycle to concourse to work, can advice me?

Not exact location but sharing moi experience:

#1 Best have a backup bike on standby in case tires punctured overnight no time to swap out tube before work

#2 Dress to be visible (bright, loud colours better) Gloves if your journey long but i always have them on cos like the grip

#3 Wet weather plan : if like me you'd cycle on even in wet weather pack a raincoat on your bike? Also wet conditions best have disc brakes rather than rim brakes...

Thanks for sharing. Yep i have got gloves and my bike is using disc brakes. I guess I will just go to basement carpark through same entrance as cars. Just need to turn on my tail light to warn any vehicles behind me.
