Have an old CarryMe (2008 model) with the dual-speed ATS Speed Drive. Bought it second-hand; believe the previous owner got it from E-walker.

E-walker is sadly no longer distributing the CarryMe and the current distributor (MightyVelo) is not a believer in the dual-speed models and doesn't have the tools or support for it.

The Speed Drive unit is starting to give me issues (the heel shifter is not shifting well and sometimes drops into neutral). Does anyone know a shop that would service these things in Singapore?

Hi I am looking to buy my first road bike.
I have shortlisted 2022 Canyon Endurance CF 7 and Canyon Endurance 7.
Is the carbon fibre bike worth $400 more than the aluminium version?

If everything is the same except one is carbon fibre and the other is aluminium, then of course get the former for just $400 difference. It will/should be lighter and more comfortable to ride. And later if you want to resell, it would be easier or fetch a higher value.

At $2.6k price point, would it be lower quality carbon fibre and thus I would be better off with aluminium?

beginner here, I want to buy a bicycle that can fit my lift so that I can cycle to my gym.

How do you guys know on average, what's the market price for different bicycles? Any website like iPrice that was for HP?

I think a foldable bicycle will be more exp than a normal bicycle that's shorter but can fit my lift right?
any recommendations on where to buy bike? online?/overseas?

thinking of second hand, is carousell the only place to find? got so many that idk how to filter my search

Hi Guys,
Need some help here, buy parts for my own bike but i'm stuck at the rear thru axle. Was told to get 12x148 thru axle size. Checked on DT Swiss they do have the length i want but i don't seem to see the end cap. Do i need to purchase the end cap separately?

most foldable can take that load, bottleneck is the seatpost, should be fine if it is not extended too much.
