Hawker and food fare you must try around Henderson

Not many places you can still find S$3 for a porridge cooked so smooth and only with fresh ingredients. Run by this really spunky lady who never fails to put a smile on your face. She could be seen as “aloof” but underneath the masks (she wears 2 as she is afraid of getting COVID) and hard work, lies the love of her work to put the best possible porridge for those who need to reminisce of how your grandma cooked porridge for you when you are feeling down.

Aunty Pearly who mans the stall will end promptly at 730pm or when her ingredients finish. So head there early if you do not want to miss it.

85 Redhill Ln, #01-95, Singapore 15008 is the address. YOU will not regret the chance to taste the no msg porridge. And if she happens to be closed, the MUST try tonic soup is next door stall.

3 Sixty Korea – Update

Everyone’s offering an “equivalent”

Recently, the emergence of 16 inch wheels that appear in our market has shown the popularity of the compact fold made famous by Brompton from UK. Many times owners buy because of TWO reasons; lower price and utility of the design.

It is interesting to note that South Korea is said to be the 2nd largest market for Brompton bikes. So not surprising that there are so many variants of the bike emanating from South Korea.

Following its invention in 1979, Brompton decided to protect its bicycle and, particularly its folding system under the patent system. After 20 years of protection, the patent expired and the folding system entered the public domain, but the popularity of the bicycle continues to grow every day. Not surprising you see so many from Chinese factories. The Koreans are not spared from this either, without getting into details, 3Sixty Korea has her fair share of skirmishes with Chinese makers but they have to take the stance of reviewing their operations and to redesign their bikes for new releases.

So what are the releases? The Mti2. A 7.9kg bike that has the entire frame made of Titanium. Designed to delight with its light weight and clean lines. It was hard getting hold of stocks but for those who could get one, they become collector’s item.

Project Black Edition -111 units built

Achieving a weight of 10.3kg (without pedals) but retaining the key elements – Titanium front fork and rear triangle for reduction of weight, 3 speed (upgradable) freewheel hub for ease of maintenance, light weight CNC brake levers, chainring, Gold chain, carbon protector so you do not scratch the Ti fork when folded, and carbon handlebar AND 3 Sixty will lower the price of this limited M3ES Black edition to S$2700. It is typically 1kg lighter when you compare with other designs assembled in UK, Korea or China.

Some of you asked – why has 3Sixty Korea not come out to say something about unapproved use of the brand name 3Sixty? is this not confusing? There is some work in the background but until the dust settles, the best thing that buyers can do is to buy based on the build and service support for the bike. As in all luxury goods, the items we own reflects our confidence and status psyche.

Interested in owning a M3ES Black Edition? email liz@mybikeshop.com.sg with name and contact WITH subject title <3Sixty Black edition> and we will contact you to come by to pick one up.

We have line up accessories and parts that would improve key aspects of the bike. Basic Alu based types and Titanium options for our 3 Sixty Korea owners.

Tyrell bikes Update 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.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is fx-fully-booked.jpg

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.
