Topic: Entry level bike

Posted on: 2nd Mar 2019 10:07 PM    Quote and Reply

I need a foldie to commute to the gym about 2km away (need to go uphill and downslope kind). I have about $300 budget so would like to know if anyone has any recommendations? Thanks

the thing about entry level foldies is a) the folding mechanism is cumbersome b) they are heavy so unless you intend to continue your journey via public transport i strongly suggest a hybrid or even a hardtail MTB....

i was quite temtemp by the hybrid from Decathlon but I dont have a place to keep it at home. So if i  would have to lock it at the void deck, but the bike theft in sg is quite rampant so i'm thinking of getting the btwin tilt 500 foldie from Decathlon.

I see people parking Aleocas at the void deck. Based on price points, i think Aleoca and Decath are pretty similar right? I can just lock up the wheels to the frame and to the stand right?

The staff at Decath told me that I need at 3 locks cuz both frony and rear wheels are "quick release".

All a bike needs is a wall to lean on and thats it! You can buy a bike stand/hanger later if u wish cos in the long run when u invest more time and $$ in this hobby u are bound to at least keep *one* bike indoors haha

So I have bought the Tilt 500 (and an Oxelo Town 9 EF V2 kick scooter) from Decathlon! haha 

I was wondering how often do you guys clean your bikes before you bring them into your house? after every ride?

I never clean my bike after every ride, only after riding through a heavy downpour. I carry it into the house and place it in one corner. If you're particular about the sand coming off from the tires then place it on top of newspaper.
