Birdy 3 Carpreo Disc Review

Considering that the Germans are one of the best engineers in the world, it's only natural that some of the most innovative and cleverly designed products originated from there. In the automotive world, they are the undisputed leaders when it comes to the designs and technologies that they come up with in their cars and engines. Similarly there is Riese and Mueller, a little bicycle manufacturer that was founded way back in 1993 in Darmstadt, Germany, they are dedicated to designing and creating suspension bicycles for the bicycle market which created the birth of the Birdy folding bike, which started off from a basic idea that Markus Ri...

Trek Remedy 9 27.5 Review

While 26-inch mountain bikes haven't quite been killed off by the big, bullying 29ers, the writing is firmly on the wall for the smaller-wheeled machines now that most industry players are throwing their weight and considerable resources behind the middle child of the family. Whether you call it 27.5 or 650b, the "fad" size in mountain bikes is here to stay and could end up dominating the market.

There's no denying that 29ers are faster than 26ers over most types of terrain and with their rock and root crushing ability have made the sport of mountain biking more accessible to a wider range of people. However, with that added speed and sho...

5 Rules For Riding In The Haze

The haze is expected to last until the end of November. If you’re riding to work daily, or simply ride for its health benefits, you’ll need to ensure that what you are doing isn’t going counter to your intentions. After all, nobody exercises so that they can get sick! Here’s how you can protect yourself from the haze.

#1.      Suit Up

The typical N95 mask, rated for 95% of fine particles, isn’t enough. The Respro or 3M 7000 with 2200 particulate filter is rated at P100(99.97%) - and is much better. More importantly, they are much more comfortable to wear.

These masks have quite a few components: the mask itself comes in half or ...

MediaCorp OOH Media Urban Wheels Challenge - 10 to 11th October 2015

It was not a typical weekend at Gangsa – although in a couple of ways, it was. Guys in loose MTB jerseys, kitted out with full-face helmets and knee guards, sporting the latest and boingy-iest long-travel downhill bikes? Check. Girls in pretty much the same thing? Err… check. Stairs and wooden banks instead of packed dirt and berms? Check.

Urm, so, the last two aren’t quite Gangsa. It is instead, the inaugural Urban Wheels Challenge, an event organised by MediaCorp’s OOH Media.

Touted as Singapore’s first cycling competition set with a challenging course designed to mimic outdoor terrain in an urban setting, the event was part of M...

One of the best things about riding bikes is buying one. But not many of us can afford new bikes, with the prices of most desirable new bikes starting from 4 figures.

So the next best thing is a pre-loved bike – and that’s what Togoparts is best known for – finding used bikes or parts, at palatable prices. But buying used bikes usually comes with with some caveats – namely these below:

#1.       Fake goods

With the rise of China’s manufacturing prowess comes their amazing ability to create knockoffs of branded goods. This applies equally to bike parts, and bike frames. So, how do you spot a fake good?

Generally, if the price...

Vittoria Tyres with Graphene Technology

Every racing cyclist wants faster, grippier, and more puncture resistant tyres. These are known parameters that affect your speed and time, and ultimately going faster without more effort is the best way to go. So if you can afford to splash out in excess of a few grand for a carbon race bike, you'll want to make the best of it.

Upgrading to newer and better parts constantly has become a favourite pastime of local cyclists. But one thing that's sometimes overlooked in favour of better carbon grade, deeper rims, aero profiles and weight savings is the tyres of your bicycle. Ever realised that the only thing between your expensive carbon bi...
