Rodalink officially opened its fourth and largest outlet in Singapore on Saturday, 18 October at Tradehub21. This is the largest bicycle store in Singapore.
The outlet, situated between Clementi and Jurong East, is Rodalink’s flagship store in Singapore. The 6300 square-foot store, boasting a roomy, high-ceiling interior, will complement Rodalink’s other outlets at Jurong Kechil, Upper Thomson, and East Coast.
Rodalink’s management has spent a year looking for the ideal location for a ‘hub for bicycling enthusiasts’.
The Tradehub21 premises offers “a one-stop shop for all kinds of cyclists”. Lifestyle and children’s cycling products comprise 50 percent of the store’s stock, with the other 50 percent comprising high performance bikes, components, and accessories.
Mountain bikers, road cyclists, commuters and leisure riders will have all their needs met by the store’s wide-ranging product line. Rodalink stocks bike labels such as Colnago, Cinelli, Marin and Polygon; major component brands Shimano and Campagnolo; as well as a wide variety of safety gear, apparel, and accessories from well-known manufacturers, including Cateye, Fox, Giro, and Bell.
Customers on grand opening day were treated to a spread of light refreshments, goodie bags, hourly discount specials, and opportunities to enter a lucky draw, among other perks.
Enthusiasts of all ages were in attendance throughout the day. Most took advantage of the discounts offered, while others took the opportunity to take part in a video game-style cycling simulator ‘time trial’ challenge, or to test ride Rodalink’s top-range bikes – especially one Shimano Di2 electronic DuraAce-outfitted Colnago road bike.
Rodalink prides itself on providing its customers quality service on a regular basis, and not merely as a one-off transaction. The spacious premises – with its welcoming layout and high, banner-laden walls – facilitate this, allowing visitors to browse or sit at their leisure while being attended to.
The 600 square-foot bicycle repair & maintenance area at the Tradehub store includes a certified Marzocchi Suspension Fork Service Center. The store also provides home delivery, bike fitting and Shimano bike shoe custom fitting services, and has ample space in the front parking lot for the thorough and safe test riding of bikes.
