Haze has gone away!*
So traditional monsoon season now starts but one thing remains – we need the exercise and we love cycling! We worked with our suppliers during this period and we lined up a few sub S$500 – S$550 price tag foldables that must meet below criterion:
- Global brand
- FIVE years warranty
- Comes fitted with Fenders and Rear rack (Hey its rainy season and at least there are affordable upgrades)
- Has at least 6 speeds
- Designed with folding joints that won’t hurt your fingers
- Take rider weights of at least 105kg
- Priced between S$450 – S$550
So here is our lineup (unless stated, prices are without fenders and rack):
Dahon – Good old Dahon Vybe D7, 7 speeds, Alu frame. S$450
Tern – Link B7, stepped down from Link C7 ( no front luggage truss mount) at S$499, 7 speeds.
Bickerton Portables – the widest line up with 16 inch Junction 1406 S$450
(comes with rack and fenders)
or 20 inch Junction 1306 6 speeds at S$450 (without fenders and rack)
and 7 speeds Junction 1507 S$499 (without fenders and rack)
So many reasons you buy a brand from us.
So, times could get hard and weather could get wet but the haze has gone away and with a average ownership of a well designed foldable that you would own and ride for 2 years. That’s only a less than S$20/mth for TWO years (or 67 cents a day investment) small footprint, comes with gears and gives you plenty of natural endorphins each time you cycle. Do the maths, you’d understand why you should buy a reputable brand – it’s truly affordable now.
* It’s official the NEA published:
End of Dry Season in the Region
5 There has been an increase in rain showers over the past two weeks, signalling the end of the traditional dry season in the region. This has helped to alleviate the hotspot and haze situation in Sumatra and Kalimantan. More rain can be expected in the coming weeks with the onset of the Northeast Monsoon in December. For the rest of the year, the likelihood of transboundary haze affecting Singapore is low, although there may still be brief periods of slight haze if winds are unfavourable.
6 Based on most global climate models, the prevailing El Niño is expected to persist into early 2016. Studies of past El Niño events have shown that the El Nino has less impact on the rainfall pattern in Singapore and the nearby region during the wet phase of the Northeast Monsoon season in December and January.
