Tirecare Sealant

Emergencies are something that nobody would want to experience if possible, because it always calls for an immediate intervention to prevent the urgent problem from getting worse and escalating further, therefore it is something that everyone should be adequately prepared for. In cycling, getting a puncture mid-race or even halfway through your trail thrills or in your group ride is also one such emergency, nothing spoils your rhythm and pace like a sudden puncture in your tyres halfway through the ride, then you would have to stop and pull up to the side of the road, get off your bike and try to repair the puncture as quick as possible wi...

Gods of Repair

Singapore, though not exactly big, is a hub for almost everything, and with the high density of bike shops all over the island, it’s no surprise we are also a hub (effectively) for some of the best repair work you can get in the world, if not some say JB and Batam.

Just like us, when we are ill, we head down to the family doctors, but when serious issue crops up, we head straight into the hospitals. So you may wonder after all our hard work searching amongst the best of the best mechanics on the island, who deserves the title of “God”? Fret not while we bring you around island and highlight the final shortlist!

Fulcrum Racing Zero Competition

Established in July 2004 in Italy, Fulcrum Wheels s.r.l. is the brainchild of three aerospace engineers who were also very passionate cyclists, and the success of this very young and vibrant company is fundamentally based on unique patents, continuous technological research and attractive and young spirited designs.  Fulcrum started manufacturing wheels only for road bikes, but in 2008, two more product lines joined the Fulcrum family, wheels for off road bikes and carbon fibre cranks for racing bikes.

Fulcrum Racing Zero

Wheelsets, some says that they make the most difference in your ride. Do they? This is where we find out about the Fulcrum Racing Zero wheelset. Fulcrum Racing Zero is at the higher end spectrum aluminium road wheelset that Fulcrum they themselves have to offer.



Yes it may seem like a pretty hefty sum to pay for a aluminium wheelset. However it does have its merits in the weight department due to the fact that it is actually lighter than some of the carbon wheelset range fulcrum has to offer, coming in only at a weight of approximately 1520 grams. With weight, they too topped it off with an aerodynamic edge despite being a pretty shallow ...

Colnago C-RS

High performance Italian bike manufacturer Colnago was founded in 1952 by Ernesto Colnago who opted to work in the bicycle industry when he was a teenager instead of working at his family’s farm.  His brief stint in road racing was abruptly cut short due to injuries from a bad crash while racing, therefore turning to being a racing mechanic for some of the best cycling teams in the 50s and early 60s, all while still building steel frames for the cycling industry.  The 70s was a boom time for Colnago as they started mass producing bikes for the American market too and were producing huge volumes of bikes to meet the demands of a constantly ...

CEMA Ceramic Bearing Bottom Bracket

For anyone who knows the purpose and advantages of using bearings, then they should also be aware that friction between two surfaces that is in contact with each other is the last thing that we would want, therefore contact surfaces employ the use of bearings to reduce the friction between the two moving surfaces, and bearings not only reduce friction, but also minimize wear and tear as well so that the surfaces can last longer.  bicycles mostly use cartridge type bearings which is basically a bearing assembly that can be entirely removed and replaced if necessary, so that the only contact surfaces that are constantly moving against each o...
