Fabric Scoop Shallow Elite Saddle

Ask some cyclists which part of the human body forms the largest contact point with the bicycle and you will probably get a mixture of responses like “hands”, “palms”, “feet” and “sole”!  But the truth is, our bums is the biggest touch point with our two-wheeled gizmos!  As the mainstay that supports our spine and the weight of our torso, it is no surprise that the most fleshy part of the human anatomy is the key factor that determines how enjoyable your ride can be.  It doesn’t matter that you have a strong pair of legs or powerful lungs; once your backside feels sore, your ride is miserably finished!

The folks from Fabric probably kno...

Marin Attack Trail 8

For any cyclist, we need to sometimes push ourselves as well as our bikes to the limits, or else cycling will soon be a chore as it's human nature for us to feel bored once any activity gets repetitive and uneventful.  This is why for professional road cyclists, winning a stage in any road cycling competition, especially if there is a fiercely fought sprint to the finish line, the rush that they get makes their daily training rides month after month all worthwhile, a few seconds of excitement can be very rewarding and fulfilling indeed.  But personally, I find cycling off the beaten track and onto unfamiliar and more dangerous terrain keep...

Fulcrum Racing Quattro LG

About four months back, we did a product review on the Fulcrum Racing Quattro Carbon wheelset and launched an article on this top-end model.  That write-up had somewhat garnered some interest amongst the road riding aficionados and we have received a number of emails and phone calls about the wheelset from Fulcrum.  Some of the queries, of course, asked about the less-expensive models.  We sat down with Rodalink, the authorised distributor for Fulcrum Wheels, to mull over the email and phone responses and figured out that what most riders would have wanted is a mid-tier model - one which is affordable, and yet, does not compromise on quali...

The 2016 Polygon Xtrada 6

The bikes from the Xtrada Series are probably the longest-serving subjects in the Polygon kingdom.  Since its debut in 2010 as an all-rounder fun bike for the recreational mountain biker, the Indonesian-based bike-maker has never stopped making tweaks and improvements to the Xtrada models.  You can't blame Polygon for its enthusiasm.  After all, the Xtrada hardtails have always been the choice of many amateur and seasoned riders.

The Xtrada 6 Grey is Polygon's latest iteration for 2016 and we are quite certain that it will not be the company's last.  Whatever the future may hold for the Xtrada Series, we have invested some pedalling hou...

Crankbrothers Highline Dropper Post Review

The biggest innovation in mountain bike technology in recent years? Forget plus size tyres, boost spacing and press fit bottom brackets, arguably the real game changer has been the dropper post.

We have several options to consider these days when choosing a dropper post from all the big players, a component which many now consider essential. Allow me to make the decision that little bit harder and present you with the release of the Crank Brothers Highline. And while all the offerings may seem relatively simmilar there has been a concerted push recently for improved reliability, a common gripe from riders, and one which will affect Si...

To see and Be Seen - Niterider Lighting Solutions

Walk into any reputable bike shop and you are likely to be spoilt for choices when it comes to choosing a quality lighting system for your bicycle.  There are simply too many brands and designs to pin-point which is the one that offers the best value for the money.

The concept of value for money is subjective and varies from individual to individual.  Some said that a lighting system is considered good as long as the lumen output is high.  Others said that the run time, also known as the battery life, takes priority whenever they shop for a headlight and/or rear safety light.

Whatever the case may be, Hup Leong...

Known throughout the cycling world for their bicycle tubing, components and now tires, the people at Deda in Campagnola Cremasca, Italy are fanatical about creating the most innovative equipment possible.

This game changer caught the cycling's worl...

Zipping around on smaller wheels

As an ardent advocate of cycling, riding on an electric scooter was never on my must-try list in the past.  Notwithstanding the widespread proliferation of this two-wheeler in park connectors, wet markets and even the Central Business District over the last 2 years, it did not occur to me that I should ever get myself a skate scooter, be it for recreational or commuting purposes.  There are just too many negative reports on electric scooters to prevent me from embracing them into my lifestyle!

In an ironic twist, my negative impression of this micro-wheeled gizmo turned out to be a rather short-lived one!  It all started when Trim...
