I visited Tokyo Bike SG store last night. The folks of Tokyo Bike SG are friendly and anyone that is new to cycling would not be intimidated to ask all the bike questions they have in mind.
TokyoBike sg has a collection of sleek, city bikes, which i believed many girls would love; baskets attached. Single, Fixed or with multiple speeds, they have them in the store.
I was told by the leading lady, Ms Jolyn Chua, the store is only 1 and a half week old. Located along the vibrant street of Haji Lane, we would be seeing lots of girls going for test rides along the alley.
What is Tokyo bike SG? It is Tokyobike’s first and only flagship boutique in Asia outside of Japan. They have accessories and lifestyle products, in-store mechanic (WAY TO GO JOSE!) who is ready to answer any customers questions, provide repair work, tuning and servicing for your ride.
Jolyn added that any cyclist can treat the store as a pit stop, to top up water from the dispenser that is available. Its definitely a pro cyclist group of individual we have there in TokyoBike SG. I wish them all the best and hope one day, we will be out riding together.

Tales From The Crit is the first-ever Fixed Gear Criterium race ever organized locally. Organized by a small group of cycling enthusiasts, the race will be an opportunity to bring together as many Fixed Gear cyclists from around the region in this community that has been steadily growing. The race is not about finding out who has the fastest legs and the strongest lungs but a chance to tighten the cycling community. We, the organizers are hoping that this event will not be the first and last of its kind here in Singapore but we are hoping that it will grow into a must-go event that happens annually or even bi-annually

I have been receiving a couple of emails on and off from visitors that are making their way to Singapore, asking me about bike stores that are worth the visit. Most of them are looking for fixed gear bikes and components.
Here are a couple of the stores worth the visit.
I love hanging out at Fab’s. For Italian owner Fabrizio Bicycles are more than just a business, it is a way of living. His passion for bicycles drove him to create a shop concept where you will feel that you are more like a friend. He rides with us most of the time and his store is one of those where you can step in and ask whatever u want and he will try his best to get the parts that you are looking for. In all honestly, shopping is easy there!
These boys has been around for a long time. Started by friends with a shared passion for cycling, T.R.Bikes believes in enhancing your ride with quality components and friendly, honest service from people who know and love all things bike. While T.R.Bikes is a new company in itself, they have over 15 years experience in the bicycle industry and have successful sales and service track record with many of the brands we represent. They’ll pimp your ride, no doubt about it.
I love this shop! Its not a fixie related store but it has like everything a daily bike commuter would need. i feel like a kid in that shop! Friendly service with good products and there’s a cafe as well! Perfect!
There are plenty more bike stores yet to venture in Singapore. And when i do… i will be sure to post about them.

A week ago, Shiera wrote to me about Paths of Pain to Jewels of Glory Event that she recently attended in Bali. I first met her at Tour Of Singapore 2010 and its great to know that she is still riding hard and tricking in that magical island.
She send me a couple of pictures of that event and i believe that it would be good to feature them here. Here’s a brief summary of what took place:
The night kicked off with the participants trickling in from their various modes of transport, each heading to the Bengkel to put their rides back together in preparation for a little night time cruise. From the Deus Temple to Potato Head was the plan, with a little stop off in Oberoi for an impromptu street closure and trick exhibition. Everyone made it to Potato Head, socializing and drinking the night away, resting their weary legs and knocking back a few.
As the morning rolled round, those who stayed up and partied slowly arrived at the Temple, along with those who hadn’t yet gone to bed. A 35km ride through paddy fields to the ocean and back was the first order of the day, testing peoples metal and showing them some beautiful vistas along the way.
The rest of the day saw a Lap Race, Wheelie contests, Trick Showdowns, the Courier Race and games of Sumo and Skid Target. We managed to pack everybody into the emptied showroom floor, putting its polished floors to good use. As the day turned to night, The Hydrant put on a show which had everyone on their feet as well as on their peddles.
The event drew to a close with an award ceremony sporting some sweet prizes.
Thanks, Shiera for the pictures and an update on the event. I hope to see you in Bali, soon.
