what should be the tyre pressure ? in PSI?
if I got to petrol kiosk, can use their tyre pump?
#1 PSI/Pressure depends of diameter/width of tires for the most part
#2 Petrol Kiosk pumps set for Schradar valve if using Presta need adapter

what do you all think of this bike? Although I fixed my bike already, itchy hand now.

if this bike you can last for 40km, I m sure you can also cycle 40km back...

And subject to the max pressure rating provided by the tyre manufacturer.

I have a Hachiko foldable bike, think it's the 1st gen one. Quite heavy. Difficult if you want to lift it up and put in car. OK for normal commute and medium distance cycling (depends on leg power). Not good if you want to push into MRT. The folding mode is probably good for storage at home if space is a constraint. I hardly fold it.

Also can fixie climb up slope on normal road/PCN?

It depends on the person stamina and fitness. I also used mobike to cycle from punggol down to geylang lorong ...

The bike type will help with speed but it's the person fitness level which will decide if the rider can go far or not
