1000lumens light is too much.. 100 lumen is more than enough...

please if you buy a 1000 lumens light ..make sure its a kind that can adjust to lower lumens... and please please shine it on the floor to light up 1-1.5m from your tires.

if you cant adjust lower than 1000 lumens, please shine it down.. and also dont't use the strobing or blinking light form.

Yeah quite a few people point their lights horizontally instead of down at the ground. I find it hard to believe that they don't know the effect of doing so.

Isn't it harder to cycle with the mountain bike type of tyre?

sometimes i dont blame these people too... many people also first time own a bicycle since "kampong days" ... we should have a national level education on these things. there are lot of bikes out there.. and since we have already stop the ebikes from the paths, we should do these education on a national level. maybe a month of bike safety or something. in australia, student have week long bike safety thing , where they are taught how to ride safely

This is 1000 lumens but using neutral white led with beam cut off design. Less glaring compared to white led.

Actually anything more than 200 lumens on pavement and more than 600 lumens on road are overkill. I guess the one who bought 1000 lumens is going into forest where no pedestrian is looking at him.

Hey peeps! I saw this on the Giant website: Giant Gavia Fondo 2, tubeless, 700x28c (30mm).

I believe 28c is the width of the tire. But what does the (30mm) means?

Hi All,

I'm looking for a folding bike, w/ 20-inch wheels, light weight and can take 80-120kg load weight.
Budget about 1.3K

Any recommendations? Just a casual rider...

Beginner here looking for first bike, plan to cycle for fun with friends once or twice a month, recently did 100km round island with AnyWheels. Thinking of either Btwin Riverside 100 ($250) or should I go bigger? I saw at Rodalink, Polygon Path 2 ($649) and Marin Fairfax 1 ($649). Is it a lot of difference between these 3 bikes?

Just bought a Bike Friday, was wondering where I could buy those front bag to install? Any night lights and backlights to recommend? Do I need to install PPF for the bike to prevent scuff marks?
