    It does not take alot of battery power to run it.. it will last you along time. It is just like running a watch. It does not take alot to measure all the data as alot of it has to do with the magnet sensor at the wheel and fork. As the magnet pass the sensor on the fork with every rotation, it is sending that magnetic flux which is picked and calculated by the display unit on your handle bar. Easily one year of use lah..... more if you are careful not to damage it or subject it to any big change in temperature..etc.

    Nice white, is it a steel frame?

    So you had to change the whole wheel set plus the disc brakes, rotors and brake levers right?

    Yeah, just normal 4130 steel.

    Yup, had to change the lot, but over time it was worth it.. they saved me from many near accidents

    Glad you have choosen a disciplinary path to weight loss with
    greater understanding regarding the final benefits of regular cycling
    to achieve your goals.

    The Cateye computer is a very useful tool for you to find out the
    total distance as well as the average speed you are doing.
    Record the information in a little notebook for each cycling session.
    You will know when you have covered your first 1000 km and be
    able to compare your weight since the day you began training.

    However during your four days of resting, it won't do you any good
    if you start to eat as much as you can. Just have regular light meals
    and keep to your chosen diet with a good mental positive attitude.

    Keep us posted on your findings of regular disciplinary cycling for
    weight loss. This will also encourage others to follow a similiar program.

    Be happy and keep cycling.

    Default Park Connector Network Project

    The Part Connector Network (PCN) is a good example where the government is putting great effort to make Singapore a paradise for cyclists. We know that cycling is a bit dangerous on the road especially for inexperienced cyclists.

    Cycling on the highway is not allowed for obvious reasons. It's still a long way for local motorists alike to be awared of cyclists who have to commute to work daily and to give allowance for their presence on the road.

    Exploring the PCN is a great adventure for recreational cycling. On exploring the PCN, one good place to go is the Ulu Pandan Park Connector 1.



    Enjoy cycling.

    The steps could be a problem for children cyclists.
    Hope the authorities can replace it with a smooth path for them
    to easily push their bikes up.

    Still the PCN is a joy for many cyclists.
