Any recommendations for a foldable bicycle for 1.8m+ adult? Thank you.

Usage: casual riding at pcn and to nearby mall/supermarket

Check out those foldable shops that allow you to swap out to a longer seatpost at purchase... example mobot or Liaoge

the wheel diameter is usually called 700c or 29 inch? when buying the right diameter must take note of a few things
a) O.L.D must match your frame? Road bikes typically 130mm while MTB/Cyclocross 135mm - this is usually for QR or nut style securing of wheel to frame else
b) "Boost" or thru axles have longer O.L.D and frames can only tale one type of "wheel secure mechanism" i.e QR, nut or thru axel type so again confirm what your frame can take (previous wheel is a sure thing also)
c) the "21" part in your example refers to the width of the wheel? road bikes cannot take too fat wheels cos would rub against brakes haha

Decathlon got sell 700c/29" wheels IIRC

to be precise, its 21 is the width of the rim. What is O.L.D ?

their 700cc wheels always out of stocks and are thinner for road bikes, although it could fit hybrids too.

Would like to start with a simple casual bike mainly to bring my child around. Need a child seat. Is it recommended to get foldable bicycle with child seat? Any good shop around Sengkang area?

Did some research, there is this Phoenix brand from China. And also Decathlon has few selections. Any other recommendation?

Does anyone knows if I should use a dry lubricant or an oil type one for my bicycle chain? And any recommendation for some value picks?

Mostly cycling around PCN and normal walkways. Will try not to cycle when it rains, but then again, can't avoid splashes though.

Is there any difference between Aceoffix and 3sixty? Seems Aceoffix usually costs more.

Anyone cycles to office? Like at least 1 hr journey that kind, full cycling kit go office shower and change to office wear that kind haha.
Do you have 1 kit for home to office, and then bring along 1 more kit for office to home? The morning kit sweaty liao just put in plastic bag to 'rot' during the day? I'm seriously considering cycling to office and now thinking about the logistics of doing so.

if you dont work weekend. try it out on a weekend. if the traffic is very heavy even for weekend.. maybe you will reconsider.

i will try to get to work earlier than usualy..1) so that there will be less traffic, 2) incase it rains , bike problem and what not. not in a hurry 3) facilities will be unlikely be used at that early.

if you just use water to 'wash' it a bit. dry it out. lay it on a towel then wrap it with the towel. put in a zip lock ( can reuse) and put out all the air before you close it. its not too bad actaully... unless you got special smell lah.. that i cannot help.

having some deodorant in office will help. a bag with your office cloths in a zip lock bag will be easy enough to carry. shoes probably will be the most problematic. if need dress shoes. i will leave my shoes in office. or you can look at getting a 'triathon transiiton bag" or that kind. that can store shoes and wet stuff. have fun.... give it week try... then you will find out what you can and cannot do
