I probably can pick up cycling in a few days time. But what's a good entry level bike? GT Avalanche? Will probably learn upgrading as i go along. btw LNT is just 1 minute's walk from my house.

Hi, it seems that there is alot of pro cyclist here.

Does anyone knows where I could get the below mentioned tail lights in Singapore? I've asked many bike dealers but they all claim they dont carry this product, so sad~. Anyone here knows where to purchase it in a BRAND NEW form?

Much help would be deeply appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Just Crashed...

I just came back from cycling, kinda training for OCBC cycle next year..My bike is Scott Speedster S60

Was sprinting along Changi Coast Road, then I saw a small group of cyclists who looked like the casual night cyclists in front of me, over took the first pair, then didnt focus my attention on the 10m ahead of me anymore after that, kinda just looking at my own wheels kinda perspective, and before i knew it, BANG...

Crashed into another cyclist from that group in front, my front wheel just like slotted into the cyclist's rear wheel...KNNBCCB....

Its all my fault though, and I did apologise, but I was ****ing cursing and swearing in my own head at that time...damn it...

Suffered a few bruises on both knees and a bruise on my right arm, not much damage to my bike though, JUST A FARKING FLAT FRONT TIRE....KNNBCCB..I stay in Pasir Ris lor...how to walk home??!??!?!?!....

Lucky managed to hail a cab after a short while...

Lesson learnt, never be too complacent when ure cycling...

ok...end of WALL OF TEXTZ

If ordering alone, its quite expensive...US$17+ for the taillights + another US$32 for shipping charges.

Tail lights don't get too bright, if not very irritating for the riders behind

If want to be safe, use more lights, make yourself until like a christmas tree

It's not as bad as some imagine. I have rode behind friends with this rear light and never I have found it to be irritating.
