Colnago Strada SL Review

If you see a bicycle with a signature on the frame itself, you will know that it's not there just for the design's sake, but that this frame might have something special in store for you, and if that signature happens to be of Ernesto Colnago's, then prepare to be surprised once you get this bike under your feet.

Though this aluminum framed Strada SL is not considered light when compared to most other carbon fibre framed bikes, it's definitely not on the heavy side as well, as modern aluminum materials have enabled bike builders to create some truly lightweight aluminum frames. A new or beginner rider might actually think that this is a ...

Soek Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe

Ever thought about the history of cycling in Singapore? Considered how the future would be like when you look at the entire timeline from the past till the present? In truth I have no real idea what the history of cycling in Singapore is like, because I wasn't born when Singapore was. But I know a guy who does; his name is Mr Poon Kng Joo, founder and Director of Soek Seng 1954.

Let's get something out of the way immediately. Mr Poon, affectionately known as "Ah Joo" by those who know him, was very sure to point out that 1954 was the year the company was founded, hence those numbers in the name. So if you didn't already know, you do now.

Vincita Transition 45 litre Bag Review

Ever needed to pack your bag for a cycling trip up north and had lots of gear to bring? Found yourself requiring lots of various storage pouches to organise different sets of items in your luggage? Well so have I. After all, dumping everything into the luggage without any sort of order is not something that everyone can stomach.

Enter the new Vincita Transition 45 litre, a bag that looks innocuous and unassuming at first glance but turns out to be um, more than meets the eye, if I may use a transformers phrase. It's designed and sold exclusively by Fazz Bike360, and is only available through them.

What's so special about this bag then?...

So clearly, foldable bikes have niched out into the mainstream and are here to stay. Now, just what makes them so popular and why should you be looking at a foldie for your next purchase? Here’s my take on this trend:

Sinbao XD 3.0 Review

Fat bikes were originally designed for riding in the snow, so what would someone living in tropical Singapore do with one? Have loads of fun, that's what!

This writer had a blast on the XD 3.0, putting the big-wheeled monster through its paces on a variety of terrains. It ate up the roots and rocks on the trails, bounced its way along the Green Corridor and slowly slugged its way through the golden sands of Sentosa.

While not exactly a high-performance machine, the Sinbao XD 3.0 provides a good introduction into the strange world of the juggernauts that are beginning to find their way into local bike stores. And at a price point of just ...
