My Bike Shop
My Bike Shop (MBS) is located along West Coast Road, right opposite the Esso station near the West Coast Food Centre. You will notice something different about the shop the moment you step in. Firstly, there is not a single full size road or mountain bike in view. Instead rows of foldable bicycles and minivelos come before your eyes. If folding bicycles and minivelos are what you are looking for, this is the place for you. The second thing you will notice is the casual and friendly atmosphere in the shop. There is never ending jokes among the MBS team running the place. But that does not mean that they are not serious about their job. Conversely, they are very professional in dealing with customers, very customer focus and have plenty to share on minivelos.
MBS currently carries 7 premium foldable bicycle brands, they are: Airnimal, Bike Friday, Moulton, Dahon, Flamingo, Lamborghini and Tyrell. Each of these has their unique selling point and that represent a wide and varied choice for potential customers, depending on their needs. Acknowledging the fact that most riders are not familiar with mini, MBS has a fleet of demo bikes for customers to try before making any committment.
If you have cash to burn and are looking for something special to match your status, than the Moulton is for you. Founded by Dr Alex Moulton, a highly respected engineer and inventor, more than 50 years ago, Moulton is the Rolls Royce of the minivelos. Their products are evolutionary, ensuring designs are always up-to-date to meet the rigorous demand of new generation cyclists. Each of their frames is handmade in the land of the Union flag and has a lead-time of 3 to 4 months.
For racer wannabes, you have the option of the Tyrell. A relatively new Japanese company, but they have won numerous design awards and their bicycles are of racing pedigree. Taking the Tyrell SI for example, it is built light, stiff and simply to go fast. Comparing to the Moulton, their price range is much more affordable, though it can still mean a month or two of your pay. Tyrell is very popular in Japan as they are easier to store but still perform like a full size bike.
For those looking for practicality, you have the good old Dahon range, which is primarily designed for daily commuting. I must add that they have also evolved with some high end racing models of their own. Available from $499 onwards, Dahon bicycles are practical options if you decide to ride partially (making use of the public transport system) to work. They can fold or unfold quickly and are allow on buses and trains. On weekends, it can double up as a recreational tool, opening a new chapter in your healthy lifestyle.
Other than the bicycle itself, MBS also carries minivelos components for your future upgrades. There are plenty of options to choose from. They have standard components (identical to those use on full size bikes) like drivetrain and contact points to specialized parts like 20″ carbon racing wheelsets, and the list goes on. In addition, they are also the biggest official dealer for Schwalbe in Singapore and carrying the biggest range of schwalbe products not only for folding bikes, minivelos, but also for mountain and road bike.
While their specialty is in folding bikes and minivelos, they do provide mechanical services and some replacements (for common parts that can be used on both mini and full size bikes) for standard bikes as well. So even if you do not ride a minivelo, there is still something for you at MBS.
MBS also holds regular rides during the week for their customers. If you are keen to join, give them a call, I am sure they will be more than glad to have more riders joining them.
