Are you heavy? If you are, it seems Hito X6 is good for people who are heavier.

And the basket and rack can carry heavier stuff :p
Thanks! Only X6 can add rack and ah? If I not heavy, can get $200+ one and add rack? I heard some foldable cannot add rack.

No la Hito X6 is a foldable bike which can take heavy weight; not saying only it can take racks.

Before you buy you should ask the seller about adding racks.

Like I bought my bike (not Hito X6) from Carousell, I chat with the seller and ask various stuff about the bike first.

Hi all, I am looking to buy a foldable but prefer the look of a full size wheel. I tried some model with 16" wheel and just didn't like the feeling.

Came across this model Bickerton Docklands 1824, can anyone advise if the parts that comes with the bike is ok or should I look at other brands at the price range of $1k? Thanks in advance.

I intend to cycle with my friend but the problem is we're on the opposite end of the island.. I don't think I have the energy to cycle to west side and back haha. That's why I thought a foldable would be nice, I can catch a bus to meet them.

Is the Bickerton Docklands compact enough for you to bring onto public transport each time you wanna meet her?

Definitely need to lube the chain, make sure you do a simple wipe down or degreasing.
The factory lubricant no need to remove unless you are doing submersion wax.
Dry lube if you intend to cycle on good weather only, else use wet lube.

Hi. Thanks for your advice. I think I will keep the factory lubricant on for a while until my mileage on the new chain hits 100km before I'll degrease it and apply new lube.
By the way, is Decathlon teflon all weather lube a good investment?

I dont mind the size but I'll ask to be sure it can be brought onto public transports.

It's my first purchase so I'd like to know if that model is okay for the asking price? I don't want to get it just because it's a 26" foldable that I can find now. I'm open for more recommendations/suggestions if they are better value for money. Would also consider 20" foldable.

Hi my old dahon 1.6" on old

I saw on YT videos the "correct" way to push a Hito X6 is with both hands by the handles and need to engage brakes. If expecting to commute on MRT and bus with the bike then one-hand pushing by the seat (like with Brompton and clones) is more practical.
