1 July updates for our operations

We have seen increasing e-commerce orders and also adopted visits by appointment only, to prevent overcrowding of visitors. At the same time, we observe the increasing number of bikes that are being booked and holding for uncollected bikes is getting hard to manage as customers are constraint to come down due to WFH or work commitments.

So w.e.f. 1 July, the branch in Yishun will be re-designated as a Service/Collection/eCommerce fulfilment location. Henderson will focus on bike viewing/demo/payment location. In addition, we are moving towards adopting more digital means for payments and collections.

So what has changed?

  1. More slots for basic install, half service and full service as we pool mechanics in one location at Yishun.
  2. You will no longer be able to do bike test riding and bike viewing at the Yishun branch.
  3. Henderson will only carry out Basic install.

What has not changed?

  1. All visits for services to both locations strictly by appointment.
  2. Collection of prepaid bikes continue to be available by booking at Yishun and Henderson.
  3. Yishun will continue to accept drop off/collection for bikes sent for agreed repairs, adjustment bookings and servicing.
  4. You can view the upgrade parts; chain, tires, racks, wheels
  5. You can view accessories that are enable you to be safe – lights, bell, phone holders, helmets, lubricants
  6. Henderson will no longer accept bookings for Half or Full service bookings. ONLY Basic installs/adjustments will be available.
  7. Payment via Paynow preferred instead of cash.
  8. Delivery service is S$35/bike to one location accessible by lift

Why the change?

For starters, we have been training a pool of bike installers and it makes sense to pool them for more efficient production and preparation of bikes. We have always designed Yishun as a location for this. This also makes the access to spares easier as it is now consolidated at one location. It also makes sense for us to pool all items for e-commerce closer to the warehouse.

We have plans to commence a bike builder program for our customers when the Covid situation improves. So watch this space.

To offer higher capacity to allowing viewing and test riding, we will have more bike advisers and a wider pool of demos at Henderson when booking opens.

Singapore enters in Phase 2/3 (Heighten Alert) from 14 June

Updated measures will take effect from 22 July 2021 (please refer to Annex A for full details on the updated safe management measures (SMMs), including for other activities where applicable):

We are taking the necessary steps to prevent overcrowding at our stores. As in the store or within the vicinity of the test bike area. As the situation for safe distancing changes, we will adhere to government advisory.

Tyrell bikes Preorder 2021

Tyrell from Japan has always scored on looks and performance.

Minivelos traditionally are not foldable bikes. The first attempt to make a foldable minivelo in production scale was Dahon in 2010  who labelled their folding minvelos as Midtown series. The word “Velo” is french for bicycle, so rather than calling it a Mini bike, the Japanese have branded it “mini Velo”, with a good sense of history, culture and chic wording.

Tyrell continued this and pushed through the Tyrell FX, which till todate is a favourite for those who want looks, speed and foldable.

For 2021, the FX does away with the straight handle bar and adopts the dropbar as a standard equipped with Shimano 105 format.

The CSI is back for those who do not need it foldable and want it pure.

Last but not least the IVE Sports – which is the improved version of the IVE.

Limited units so do hurry.

 

3Sixty from Korea

 3Sixty has now made a home in Singapore.  With innovations and quality built from Korea, they offer exceptional value if you are in the market for a compact fold for 16 inch wheel.

 

Korea is the next country with the largest 16 inch folding bike market for the compact fold and as a consequence, you see many innovative designs and improvements for this folding format.

They relaunched their models starting from their full Titanium model – Mti , weighing in at 7.4kg and full titanium frame at S$5,500.

 

Next we turn our attention to the M3ES Black edition. With the launch of the Black edition, you can now buy a Korea assembled 16 inch folding bike at less than S$2,680.00 without waiting a year.  It will arrive by end Feb 21. All units booked. Email us if you are keen as we may get new units

 

Another beauty and only 111 pieces assembled. This bike has the rear and front fork in titanium and a lower price tag S$2680 but still beautiful.

Weighing in at 8.9kg, it is about 1.5kg heavier than the Mti.

Working closely with the Korea team, the designs have the option of upgrading to 6 speeds.

Why scooting isn’t just for kids — 5 health benefits- Strengthens core muscles and your tush

Adapted from https://swiftyscooters.com/blog/%E2%80%8A5-health-benefits-for-scooter-mums/

PMDs are typically powered by motor and a rechargeable battery.  Swifty Scooter Swiftyonepremium adults skate scooters strengthen core muscles and for those who need to get back into shape, using that Skate scooter for your errands or exploring the city or neighborhood gives you a great workout. PLUS it gives you that longer range than running or jogging. SwiftyOnes and they not only offers you the mobility, they allow you to fold, roll and bring them onto the Bus/SMRT. The SwiftyOne and SwiftyZero take riders up to 150kg.

If your kids love their scooters, investing in a quality adult version not only gives you a ticket to join the fun on the school run, but also provides a host of additional benefits.The Swifty IXI arrives in August 2020

Scooting can increase core strength

How often do we find time in our daily routines for the planks and sit-ups that aid core strength? Scooting is excellent news for core strength, as you balance a scooter you engage your bum. The need for stabilising whilst standing on a scooter places a positive demand on muscles that we all too often take for granted. In particular, having a good foundation of the muscles around the stomach, back and pelvis, can protect against back problems that affects as many as half of us in adulthood.

Aerobic and anaerobic fitness systems get a look in

Scooting on the flat provides an opportunity for gentle aerobic exercise by elevating the heart rate. On even ground, you’ll spend the majority of your scoot-time in the aerobic ‘fat burn zone’, but you’re never far away from an anaerobic challenge, especially if you live near any steep inclines. The moment you hit a hill on a scooter is where anaerobic capacity comes in – hills will challenge you more than on a bike. By challenging yourself in bursts and then giving yourself a break, you’ll give yourself a high intensity interval training (HIIT) session, which is known for greater post-workout benefits including elevated metabolism, for longer fat-burning effects. Scooting up hill also means one thing – there will be a down hill!

core-muscles

Say hello to your new bum and thighs

We’d forgive you for thinking that it’s only the kicking leg that get you a workout on a kick scooter. Whilst it’s true that propelling yourself along by pushing off the ground provides a powerful workout, it’s your supporting thigh and glute muscles do the majority of the stabilising work. If you want to go that little bit further for a really good conditioning session, think about engaging your bum whilst in action, and ‘squeezing’ the glute on the kicking leg. Don’t be surprised if your glutes and quads ache for a few days after scooting for the first time, and always remember to swap legs for an even work out!

Challenge your stability (even more so for ladies after pregnancy)

  1. Overall stability from top to toe is so important for everyday activities. When we talk about stability we’re referring particularly to even strength in the abdominal muscles and pelvic floor, the areas that gets stretched and weakened in pregnancy. It’s important to get those muscles working again for your long term physical well being, and especially so if you enjoy high impact sports like running, where any imbalances are accentuated and can lead to injury.

We all have a stronger and weaker side, yet don’t often have a chance to discover which is which. Scooting can improve your stability as the neurological messaging between your brain and muscles improves when challenged. It’s really important to use alternate legs for an even work out. Try 3 kicks with the left, swap and 3 kicks with the right, once you get into the rhythm, any imbalances should even out as you feel your core muscles engaging.
Exercise: If you aren’t sure which is your weaker side, stand on one leg and bend your knee, then straighten it again keeping as still as possible. One side will feel more stable than the other. For a real test — do this with your eyes shut! Use this awareness in your training.

Mental wellbeing

It’s joie de vivre for all ! It’s hard to resist a smile on a family scoot, and that’s good for the heart and the mind. What’s more, getting involved in an activity that your children already love enables more family ‘togetherness’ time. There aren’t many activities that us grown-ups and young children can share, equally enjoy and you’ll feel the benefits too.
