    Start riding the PCN experience now!

    Whenever I introduce cycling to my friends and colleagues I received
    a very negative response or attitude towards the activity pointing out that it is
    dangerous to ride with the heavy traffic and especially with the attitude that the
    buses and taxis have on cyclists.

    However most of them have never even heard of the Park Connector Network
    which was built more than a decade ago and is still ongoing. Below you can
    see the result of that idea making cyclist to have a safe ride lushed with greenery
    and breeze. You can even download the eGuides for the cycling trail including
    the OAD Map for the Eastern Coastal Park Connector Network (ECPCN)

    You can even read the enewsletter regarding all the activities and events
    happening at PCN.



    http://www.nparks.gov.sg/cms/index.p...tors&Itemid=74

    Enjoy your recreational cycling to the fullest,
    Start riding the PCN. It is built for all who enjoy cycling!
    The govt has promised us that by 2014 the island will be ready with cycling
    lane all over the island.

    Here is an SMRT guide from their website :
    http://www.smrt.com.sg/trains/docume...ke%29_2009.pdf
    A folded IF mode seems to fail a little on the 66cm regulation end hehe ( but to top it off, there is also some off peak - peak hr regulation thing )

    Bus i do not know, but last time there was a Fold-It-Ride-It trial some time back.

    The IF is interesting, and alot of funkier designed full size foldable commuters mirror somewhat its concept as well

    From the above specs given by Pacific, it seems there isn't much components

    dual speed system. I don't know whether the local agent is willing to bring in
    one for you since Walker is rather new to the industry if I am not wrong!

    The one attractive point about the IF mode for me is the freggin trispoke wheels . I think if switch into a pair of HED3s will be amazing

    Ryan, what is the HED3s you are referring to? Any images for reference? Maybe order them online and asked Pacific to do the upgrading.

    More likely having all the odds from trispoke to carbon spoke is fancy in a manner.
    The joy of going with a group to East Coast via the PCN you only need a market
    bike costing less than a hundred bucks.



    Cheers to recreational cycling!

    Do you think the best bike is the one you build yourself?

    Maybe bicycle lovers will be fascinated to learn how they can build their own bike and
    customize it for their own size and components. I wonder the bamboo bike craze
    will ever catch on in Singapore. Any bicycle entrepreneur's dream of getting a
    workshop organised?

    I would advise against putting money down on this thing. Too much money for a so-so only frame.

    Mini-velo bikes like that of the Japanese Tyrell is ideal for urban Singapore. Compact, light and fast and can easily come close to 700C road bike speeds.
    The Tyrell FX is foldable and the workmanship is stunning. Only 8.9kg for the stock bike!!! The Tyrell is easily the most desired mini-velo bike in Japan.
