    What type of tires and rims are you using for your new Insight 2.
    As for the helmet, I feel "Prowell" is reasonably priced. You can get
    it at Carrfur and some of the LBS for around $35 each. If you are around
    TPayoh, go to Hin Leong Cycle.
    I find LBS just the same as LCS. If customers not looking at top end models, they don't bother to even look at you

    I'm using the stock parts
    Rims: 20h frt / 24h rear Equation R17 Aero Doublewall w/ machined braking surface
    Tires: Kenda Kwick Trax w/ puncture resistant K-shield 700x32c

    Bro

    Where did you get the Diamondback and how much did it cost you?

    3) F300 is using road wheels, which I think is not very suitable for the sometimes bumpy pavements and PCN

    Haven't got a helmet yet, any ideas where can I get one at a cheaper price?

    Previous Cycling Event

    This was one that I led at Pulau Ubin.
    To some of the riders it was their first experience riding
    a bicycle at this island. It was a blessing as well as a
    learning opportunity for them. To have this wonderful and
    fun experience, it was really awsome!

    You can see me standing on the extreme right with the
    blue jersey, a red cap and carrying a camera bag over
    my shoulder.

    Touring South America on their bikes

    Hope this will inspire us to cycle more. This video is really moving
    and almost moving me to tears for their love and their strength in going
    through all these for all the aspiring touring cyclists.

    Pete, if you can tell us the exact location of the place in Pierce Reservoir,
    we may drop on Sunday morning while on our way enjoying the early
    morning ride tomorrow.

    What do you mean by "when I get my back"? Are you injured or something
    else? Hope our group will be able to make a trip especially for you to join
    us.

    Sorry I meant get my bike, and anyway my back is kind of sore...

    I had a chat with a friend who has a foldie, and I then searched for the IF Urban 700C. Not sure how much it is locally, but it is very nice.... USD 1800 SRP...
    I don't like the small wheel type of foldie.

    Will sleep on it first, since it is so much more expensive.

    IF is truly a foldie in the sense that they can be pushed around when fold. If need bike to be folded for travelling and reputed to be genuine mountain biking, then Dahon has this model called "Flo". It is just as expensive. For folding with big wheels but affordable, I think Swiss Army, Montague paratrooper maybe the best choice. I don't know the actual cost. If you want to consider 20" foldie, can go to MyBikeShop in West Coast. Have a pretty good range or go to Chapter to Cycle nearer your home. C2C is at block 451 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3. Here is the link for the type and their respective cost. Please note that this is the agent and they don't sell direct and usually you can get discount from their distributor, MBS or C2C. http://www.togoparts.com/shopping/ne...d=131&keyword=
    Happy shopping , alot of the folks in lovecyclingsg ride Vitesse D7, sturdy and fast too. Can add rack to bring your camera stuff, panniers for cycling tour...

    Congratulation Pete!, you've made a good choice, the IF Urban 700c is just
    the right bike for you. When you do it up with all the racks and necessary
    stuff, the bike is still fast. Now that you got the bike, perhaps you can
    join us for a short ride, if we drop by Pierce during our ride tonight.



    I was there earlier in the afternoon to try out the IF Mode.
