Rodalink is just a distributor, I doubt they will do a goodwill if polygon itself dont want to do anything. I understand a bike model can have different tire width size for different countries.

For example my giant escape 3 comes w 38 width tires while USA has a narrower tires

Hi guys. Am looking to get a lankeleisi folding bike. Isit worth buying from taobao and ship over to sg? Since itís like $100 cheaper. But then again I have no idea how much the shipping would cost 😂

Any advice from the experts here? Thanks

U r on your own if the bike got problem. Sending to bike mechanic costs money.

Then I would imagine the website for the respective countries stated what are the specifications for each country. In my case, both Rodalink SG and Polygon's website stated the Schwalbe One.

Rodalink has not replied me yet

How about compare to JAVA ZELO?
I carried a Zelo at a bike shop before, it is heavy, my guess is 13kg. I compared it with a Crius which is less than 11kg.

Yup, i hear my seller saying also..

But then again, they just need to mount different parts at the factory which is probably the same factory as camp, pikes, weekeight etc etc..

but twosix, 3sp hub good enough for typical riding..i dont even shift into the highest gear when i'm out cycling..

That's why my new wheelset still s-rf3 hub..but change to black..

Spoiler!

$200+ more for 6sp vs 3sp. I've been riding on sgbikes rental bikes recently. It has no gears and I can climb steep slopes pretty easily. But max speed below 17kph only. That's why dunno if I need so many speed or not. Which shops allow testing before buying or maybe end up not buying?

probably those with physical shops like gpbikes..

Like I mention previously on my old 10sp, end up only using 3 most of the time.

Stock 3sp top over 30..the 6 six comes with 2 external with one bigger than the stock 13t so you have more option to maintain cadence..

Edit: gpbikes is pre order stage. I heard is after cny

Thanks bro. I'd wait and test ride both 3sp and 6sp to decide. Never ride a 16" before so really dunno how it rides. But I know I've been over taken many times on the pcn by 16 or 20". Haha.
