Hi everyone, it has been a very hectic but enjoyable 2012 serving all your foldable bike needs. Despite some of the tough challenges and feedback, we are grateful for your patronage. Like the Clint Eastwood movie, we dealt with the good, the bad and the ugly situations and yet we strive to work harder and remain positive and just like our favourite jersey :- PLEASE Don’t Run Over Us(Me) :)
For 2013, first to kickoff, we will have DrHon preorders. DrHon from Dahonbikes North America will be delivering a number of 2013 models and bikes and we revisit the Speed D7 which has always been our bread and butter model. Since 2006 when we first started reselling foldable bikes (see pic on left and right) at Jalan Mas Puteh, the Speed D7 has always been a steady model with design and parts that last. We still see it being used today by folks in Singapore. See the review Togoparts review of the original Speed D7 done in 2006 http://www.togoparts.com/articles/article.php?artid=166&pageid=2
Preorder the Speed D7 at S$599 RRP is S$650 by the 15 Jan 2013. The Speed D7 is a true gem in when it comes to value and performance, making it a firm favorite in the Dahon lineup. Hand-welded and featuring a fast-shifting Neos derailleur with wide gear range, the Speed is a perfect companion for city riding. Get a proven folder with a much better front handlepost joint.
Racks and Fenders not included. 2 colours Frost or Obsidian ie White or Black.
We have already started picking up Preorders for up to 10 Verge X10 and the numbers are fast filling up. The Preorder price is S$2500 RRP is S$2750. The very popular 9.7kg 10 speed bike is very popular among our customers and you will know why once you pick it up and/or ride it.
Dahon from Taiwan
Dahon “eco” series. We introduced a Vitesse D7e S$699 and we sold out pretty fast and we have since reordered alot more, even expanding the 7 speeds to 18 speeds; Vitesse D18e (Expected S$11XX). Dahon from Taiwan will be another high quality foldable bike design with hinges and parts catering to the value conscious. We have yet to get pictures of the bikes BUT according to the Distributor, its on its way and should also arrive end Jan 2013.
2013 promises to be really exciting in the 18 speed and 7 speed category from Dahon Taiwan based on the “eco” concept, we will be introducing the Vitesse D7e and Vitesse D18e. The new Dahon Vitesse D7e and D18e adopts the new FBL hinge. For those who think they got a better deal elsewhere, please look at the joint.
It’s a design departing from the entry level bikes that are essentially 2 flat flanges locked together. The 2013 eco versions of the Vitesse D7e and Vitesse D18e will have the improved FBLjoint.
So looks you are going to be spoilt for choice!
Happy 2013 New Year everyone from the team at My Bike Shop. Ride safe and buy safe!
