The Sennes DH 29 is probably the first production downhill bike to be fitted with 29" wheels. Designed and manufactured by Alutech, a well-established brand in Germany, the Sennes DH 29 is the fruition of several generations of the 26" and 27.5" model. Just before the Sennes DH 29, the German bike manufacturer has successfully concocted the right blend between 29-ers and gravity-based mountain biking with the Tofane enduro 150mm bike.

Last Saturday night (3 December), race participants competed with one another in the now-legalised HolyCrit, after its two organisers, project manager Zulkifli Awab and bicycle shop owner Eric Khoo Shui Yan, were imprisoned and fined in October for organising HolyCrit competitions without obtaining permits from the relevant authorities.
For those who visited Taipei before, the concept of bicycle sharing is unlikely to be unfamiliar to you. The capital of Taiwan boasts more than 7,000 bikes that are available for rent from any of the 222 self-service, card-activated slots. Very soon, you need not have to travel overseas to get a taste of what bike-sharing at the national level is like. MoBike, the company that runs bicycle-sharing programs in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, is looking to expand its operations to Singapore by 2017.

But this is not the only reason as to why City Bikes are so well-received. Specially built to fit into the way we live, work and play, City Bikes themselves are a great bunch of purposeful fun on two-wheels that have somehow assimilated into the grander scheme of our lives. Today, almost every established bike manufacturer holds no fewer than 40 different models under their respective City Bike line-up.

An increasing number of users of e-scooters that can travel at speeds exceeding 25 kilometres per hour have taken steps to limit the power of the two-wheelers, in anticipation of the laws that are expected to be implemented in 2017. The new Bill – the Active Mobility Bill – has been tabled in Parliament this month and it will regulate how Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs), which include e-scooters, are used.
The Civic District on Sunday (27 November) was a picturesque of people on inline skates and bicycles as Car-Free Sunday SG returned to the metropolis on the last Sunday of November. Despite the rain, the turnout was exceptional, with many taking part in mass workout sessions, trishaw rides and music performances.
