Back side damn painful....Urgh... !! Thats why I dont like. Dont like it !
Mee Poh Man. "I am kampong man"
Bought from local shop in singapore.
I ride fast and furious such the the shop owner worry for my life (and secretly for the bicycle), and so far have not encountered any serious accident other than almost get strangled by the rusty chain which some security guard put up at orchard boulevard so people do not park motorcycle in the building and flipping over in front of a car which came out suddenly from a hidden car park, from the old building next to NAFA at bencoolen street, and falling down because I ride bike fast and furious during the rain (the tyre is not designed for slippery wet surfaces like marble tiles).
I can say that my Strida 3.3 has been abused badly for 2 years and it has not broke at all. Well the ball join pops out 2x but that is during folding / unfolding when it is over extended but that one is an easy fix.
I have Strida Mini for about 2 weeks and have not have any problem with it (still new).
I do not 100% cycle to work because I can cycle to MRT, go in, get off at destination and cycle again. It is a mixed transport. Well can only do that on Sat and Sunday nowadays cos I follow the law and we are not allowed to bring folding bikes into public transport during peak hour when I travel to work during weekdays, but I do so during weekends.
One reason for this to break down is that it could be immitation (non original). I was told that there are shop here selling non original strida (china made imitation) so they use cheapest parts that is not always safe. Mine is 100% made in Taiwan. By Ming Cycle.
About cycling and shooting - well you dont have to do both at the same time. You can stop and shoot while you are not cycling. Why endanger your life?
About fertility problem, just change the saddle man, buy more expensive one which is more comfortable.

I don't want to ride a bike because too many lousy drivers here.
back home, our busses had foldable bike racks on them. That way you could catch a bus and use your bike as well. Here, if people seem to have no patience for a bus taking time to let a wheelchair bound person get on or off, there is no way they will be patient enough to allow 10-15 seconds to get a bike on and off a rack attached to the bus. we even had soft racks that taxi drivers had for bike riders. sometimes you take a taxi to one place, but then need to bike in between. really, i don't know why singapore does not adopt some very very simple measures. i can only think of two reasons... no money to be made by the government, and people have no patience for the other guy.
here's a demo of the bike racks
as always, keep smiling
And you can always impress a model with your fancy bicycle
or cycle and find out that someone is shooting a korean commercial - IN SINGAPORE! and took some snaps from far far away.

1. I don't hold a office based job, and I cannot ride my bike to meet my customers so I have to drive
2. I cannot park my bike at the MRT station, cos no matter how cheap my bike, the china f**kers will still want to steal it
3. With singapore's lovely weather, i'll be like superman zipping in and out of under the overhead bridge changing into my hero's uniform
4. Singapore Pedestrians are either stupid, or physically unable to take a step to the side and let the bike pass, even after multiple, ring ring, excuse me, hallo, get the ***** OUT OF THE WAY.
personally i love riding bike, especially offroads, do it like 3-4x a week now, on my own time
No shower facility is the main reason for not cycling to work. My friend in Australia says they have nice showering facility in office in Sydney.
I would have adjusted my traveling habit like the ang mohs does. Waking early in the early to cycle to work. More healthy as Singapore is so small. I cycle from sengkang to jurong east before 3 hours tops during lunch hour...super hot. still alive.
Well can imagine why no shower facility in singapore... Less COE... ERP... Road tax...etc etc..
Our Gamen knows their maths.
photobum's bicycle mishap was really hilarious.
aryanto : how much did you pay for the strida?
I would really really be very happy, and appreciated if you both could share with me your experiences as a rider and user of Strida, and if you are free and have additional time to type a while longer, probably you can talk about what you would do to the bike for improvement if you are given the ability to remodel one.
Ride on pavement kenna scolded by pedestrians.
Ride on road kenna bullied by vehicles.
Ride too fast to work scared sweat too much.
Ride too slow to work scared reach too late.
Keep outside flat scared people steal.
Keep inside flat scared mother scold.
Why not have a public bike system like in paris, beijing and now vancouver? just rent the bike.
rugged, very affordable. Saw an elderly couple using the Urata foldable for leisure riding
along East Coast Park. The bike has fenders, rear rack with Shimano Revo-shifters costing
slightly more than S$250.
If you decide to get a lighter bike be prepared to pay a little bit more for the popular
Dahon. Many motorists kept one of the Dahons in the boot of their cars and go to East
Coast after office hours for a two hours recreational ride.
Here are more informations on buying a foldable bike.
Enjoy doing your research first before getting your first foldable.
