Yes, we have opened another outlet – 106 Faber Drive on 7.9.15

Hi everyone, as we continue to serve local folding bike needs and work

Faber Drive

towards providing technical support for every growing complexity of new innovations, the costs of providing skilled bike labour and knowledge requires us to keep looking for ways to lower cost. So we have been searching for a location that has the retail space, available parking (Free is best) and relatively safe roads for bicycle trials, we found it!

So we pushed really hard and on 7 Sep Monday as our kids get a 1 week breakphoto_2015-09-05_12-41-07 and 4 days before we go to the polls for GE2015 elections, we are opening our doors at My Bike Shop Tres ( Spanish for “3”) at 106 Faber Drive . Our marketing team decided to do a “79” series of promos, working hard with our suppliers to offer a limited quantity of bikes at specially priced ending with “79”.

mapJust 7 mins if you drive from our JMP outlet, we will offer our customers peace of mind from lack of parking space ( and the dreaded parking warden), service requests on Saturday* and a 1300 sq ft retail space to allow you to shop in comfort in an air-conditioned ambient.

If you come by Bus, opt to take 97, 197, 198  from Jurong East Station OR 154 from Lakeside Station OR 201 from Clementi Station and alight at Bus stop opp Infiniti Condo. Then walk about 50m ahead and make a left. You will see Faber Terrace and entrance to the row of shophouses under the Condo.

There are a few restaurants and a even a very well stocked provision shop. Restaurants are  Nobiro Japanese Restaurant and Sake Bar and Buck Tile St. Cafe.

We will be ranging Swifty Scooters soon.

Swifty-ScootersSwifty Scooters was founded by husband and wife team, Jason and Camilla Iftakhar in Manchester UK. Their shared passion for design, sport, and two wheels gave birth to Swifty Scooters, where Jason hand built and assembled the original SwiftyONE in their workshop. The feeling of riding a Swifty brought a sunnier vibe to life in the North West (UK) and has been embraced by customers from all four corners of the globe.

GQ Magazine, March 2012 “when traffic is glacial, trains overloaded and exercise time at a premium, kick scooters are an appealing alternative for city commuters.”

The My Bike Shop bike support program – MBS Tuneups

My Bike Shop – Entering our 10th year – new bike support policy – MBS Tuneups

10 years

My Bike Shop (MBS) values your patronage and support that has enabled us a decade in the business of folding bikes. A folding bike purchased from us can be used well and for a long time as we stand by the quality of the brands of folding bikes that we range.

MBS doing what we love

We have achieve a significant milestone dealing in folding bikes, thanks to everyone who made this happen! Buying from a local bike establishment means your bikes will have a support plan and the establishment is around to help you keep your bike at tip top shape for ride safety. As labour costs rise and labour is tight, we have been working towards ensuring our customers get the necessary bike support/services so we needed time to build this up.

It’s not getting easier and it alot goes behind the scenes to ensure that we have the necessary bike range supply, parts supply and knowledge and trained staff, but we sat down and we are going for it!

Picture1 (2)We are pleased to launch My Bike Shop – MBS Tuneups.  If you discover a manufacturing defect that is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, we will contact the manufacturer/distributor, and perform all replacement labour for free during the first 2 years of purchase. Shipping charges and local delivery charges may apply.

2 years

We stand by our effort and commitment to our products. We give every new bike a full tuneup during assembly including truing, and every bike we sell is eligible for a full year of free tuning to keep your bike running well. This is applicable for all bikes purchased since 1st Jan 2014.

What is covered in MBS Tuneups :

• Original parts on folding bike purchased at MBS, owned by the first owner.
park tools• We carry out one about a month after you buy the bike*, and another any time you need it within the year.
• Covers brake and derailleur adjustments, hub, bottom bracket and headset adjustment
• Tighten any loose nuts and bolts.
• Any adjustments covered by the manufacturer’s
Free 2 years inner tube replacement for 2 years from date of ownership for first owner based on original tire profile, subject to a maximum 12 inner tubes a year
• Must be booked via our online booking system Monday to Friday
Proof of ownership will be original invoice and warranty card matching owner registration and loyalty card*

What is NOT included:
• Crash damage or user neglect or use outside the manufacturer’s recommended use
• Non-original parts and accessories.
• Labour cost to install new parts and accessories (except for brake pads and chains).
• Tire replacement due to road damage or neglect.
• User maintenance such as lubricating the chain and parts and proper tire inflation. But we’ll be happy to show you how to do these yourself.

*Why do we recommend a one month tuneup?
Every bike in the world experiences a mechanical run-in period. This means that the moving parts wear against each other and produce that last bit of adjustment before they settle into a stable relationship and fit for the rest of their working life. The length of the run-in period depends on extent of use, but is usually a month after the first use. This means the cables stretch, the wheels will need truing one more time, and bolts may vibrate loose. A tuneup shortly after the run-in period means you keep the mechanical parts in a good fit and avoid possible problems in the longer term.

Inventor Sam Pearce on (literally) re-inventing the wheel

These types of stories inspire everyone who dares to dream. Inventor Sam Pearce on – literally – re-inventing the wheel… Posted November 8, 2013 by & reposted with permission from Speedmatrix

Sam Pearce talks about his journey to invent his bicycle wheel Loopwheels at The Do Lectures 2013

What makes some one set out on a journey to re invent the wheel by adding integral suspension? And when the going is tough, why stick at it?

Just recently I had cause to think back six months to April 2013, when we had just launched our Kickstarter loopwheel-bodycampaign.  I heard from the organisers of The Do Lectures that they had posted online a talk that Sam gave at the 2013 Do Lectures. It made me realise how far we have come in six months. The Do Lectures describe themselves as “a tiny event that started out in a quiet corner of West Wales that inspires you to go and do amazing things”. The 2013 event in Wales took place just 10 days after we had launched Loopwheels and our Kickstarter campaign. Sam felt hugely honoured to have been invited to speak, and though Sam is very uncomfortable with public speaking, he was determined to take part.

The whole “making and do-ing” philosophy of the Do Lectures is just what Sam is about. Talking about his long journey to reinvent the bicycle wheel and bring Loopwheels to market was a challenging and emotional experience for him, and that comes through very clearly. But if you want an insight into Sam’s journey, watch it. Sam nurtured and developed his idea for six years before he felt he had a product which was ready to be launched.

loopwheels-2Sam took a couple of Loopwheels bikes with him to Wales. They got a lot of riding. The Do camp is not your typical commuter journey of roads, towpaths and pavements, as it’s a beautiful rural setting in West Wales, but the Loopwheels bikes didn’t mind. Sam didn’t take many photos, but here’s one, of two Loopwheels bikes looking a little bit lonely! Thanks to everyone at The Do Lectures for welcoming Sam (and the Loopwheels bikes).

LATEST – now 8 speed Freewheel design. April 2011 original post: Flamingo London NX7 gets transformed to a lightweight commuter! Want one?


13 Oct 2013: Latest update is that we will be including wheelsets from Wheelsport for Q4 2013 for the V8! This is the mass production of everything we understand about this model. Together with Wheelsport and MIT Cycle, we are proud to release the V8!  Weight is now a decent 11kg 8 speed freewheel design.

Original  POST was April 2011

Flamingo bikes, folding bike brand from Taiwan have been gaining fans in Singapore and while often misbranded as a follower, people who ride them can tell you they are fast, they do not exhibit flex and they have exceptional value for the money you pay.

Contrary to common misperception, Flamingo has many firsts; they were the first to adopt hydroforming technology on their frames (this allows bike designers to make the frame longer yet stiffer) and innovations that ensure that your bike do not come apart as you go over a hill or bump AND hole extrusions that allow you to hide your cables inside the bike frame ( Do not have to deal with messy cable ties and cable eyelets.

We have seen an increase in the uptake of all models especially the HSF1 AND London NX7 and we are very pleased to help existing Flamingo owners here a chance to consider an upgrade that helps you TRANSFORM your Flamingo into a lean mean lightweight machine!

This post focuses on the London NX series

The current London NX7 – 16 inch wheels, 7 speed hub that is virtually maintenance free, you can push it around and its compact after you fold it and for short commutes around the city and it folds fast. BUT  it is relatively heavy due to the 7 speed hub from Shimano.  Any foldable bikes using a 7 speed Shimano hub will expect the bike to weigh at least 13kg or more.

Here comes the London 2L!

What did we do? Well for starters we reduced the weight! We shaved off almost 2kg  by swapping out the hub from 7 speed to single speed. C’mon for city commuting you  do not need 7 speeds. Next we changed the wheelsets and drive train and we could save a further 1kg. At the same time we did not want to blow your budget, so here is the goods news – a basic kit will cost anything bewteen S$500 to S$600 where we will mod the London NX7  to a London 2L – “L” stands for lightweight and “2” for Dual front chain ring.  If for some reason you want to take this bike for a century ride, the larger front chainring will help you overcome the downhills or flats. Bigger roller wheel to help you roll better if you push the bike very often.

So no need to buy that second bike that has similar design, be eco, be green just upgrade your existing bike!

Below are pictures of the mods.


This mod Flamingo 2L weighs in about 10.2kg

Bike Friday – 100% USA assembled foldable bike and has a very unique range too

My Bike Shop started managing Bike Friday in June 2010 and since then we have sold more than a dozen of these USA assembled bikes.  While many will agree that the 16 inch Tikit wins hands down for fast folding (Hyperfold) and the ideal bike for commuting/travel companion ( It is designed to fit a samsonite bag, with handle grips and canvas straps for easy handling), the ride is very good for 16 inch wheeled foldie. There are still the uninformed who believe that foldies are not serious cyclists, many have experienced the performance and fun one can have with a foldable ( at least we can still get on the train/buses on restricted hours and keep our bikes in the home and the car when it rains LoL).  Oh well you cannot win them all.:)

Watched an episode of America’s got Talent and it showed a young guy who has epilepsy fly his 4 wire kite with so much grace and timing to Sarah Mclachlan’s hit  – Angel. Do not have the Youtube of the guy in that episode of America’s Got Talent but has Sarah Mclachlan’s beautiful song.

  America despite their ups and downs always gives everyone a chance to fulfill their dreams.

We thought we  share with you Bike Friday’s extended foldable bike range for families with special needs  

We have brought in one Family Tandem just incase you want to try it out. It’s the perfect bicycle to bring physically( hearing, visual)  impaired,  persons with autism, those who have a fear of cycling or who cannot cycle, Maybe consider a fodlable Tandem and help them to experience what cycling is about.  Happy Boxing Day!
