Next, the Alex Moulton range, the cycling equivalent of owning a Bentley or Rolls Royce. The Moulton Bicycle is the original full-suspension, separable, small- wheeled, high-performance bicycle, world-renowned for speed, efficiency, durability and comfort.
Double Pylon with Rolls Royce. Expertly engineered for over 50 years and handcrafted in England, these bicycles are the world’s most efficient form of transport – designed for universal use, real performance and comfort. These bikes are not hard to spot, whether gleaming in Stainless Steel or resplendent in a custom paint job. Starting at just over S$8,000 (AM Speed) and running as high as S$26,000 (Double Pylon) the powerhouse of the range is the Moulton Speed in Stainless Steel at just over S$15,000.
As a radical design, the Moulton bicycle – the first small-wheeled adult bicycle – needed credibility in the market and Alex Moulton realised the importance of this when planning the launch of the bicycle in 1962. Aided by his Marketing Manager David Duffield, himself a record-breaking cyclist, several riders were actively supported by Moulton. Coventry CC pursuit team were unstoppable on the track, their Moultons allowing them to keep in a tight group to reduce aerodynamic drag; road riders benefited from the reduced aerodynamic drag of the small wheels and, with a reputation established, the Moulton became acceptable to the most discerning club cyclists. Following the introduction of the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale) rule 1.3.018, Moultons are not permitted in road-racing events – this is why you never see them in events like the Tour de France – but they are still used in time-trials and for ultra-distance events. Watch video Moulton Coventry CC 1962
How do you know you are staring at one of the high-end, handcrafted Moulton and not the standard Moulton TSR range (that gets you on a Moulton for just under S$3,000)? Other than the refined components, you will notice
the “kinked” bottom section of the spaceframe. This is a dead giveaway that you are looking at a top-end Moulton, with the enhanced performance and comfort characteristics. The TSRs are truly awesome to ride, thanks to the late Dr Alex Moulton’s pioneering work on suspension design for small wheels. Moulton has taken everything they learnt in engineering design and conceived the SST. Although no “kinked” spaceframe, Moulton wanted to improve on the TSR series, and have introduced a whole host of engineering innovation.
Next came the American revolution and putting the first man on the moon.

26 inch wheels are what many of us grew up with when it comes to bicycles.
Can I get them with folding mechanisms? The answer is YES.
While we understand the familiarity we have with larger wheels and the misconception that we have to pedal harder, today’s technology has made small wheeled foldables riding KEEP up with larger wheels. In fact sometimes with the right transmission and fitness, small wheeld foldable outrun bigger wheels.
Here is a helpful picture
A bit of really early notice but we will be ranging the Bickerton 1824 (24 speeds Docklands by Feb 2021. Lets hope the manufacturers can delivery earlier. Expected RRP S$1 – 1.1k
Very often we have customers who refuse to don a bicycle helmet for various WRONG
reasons, from “not necessary” to “messes up my hair” to ” I am going at a slow speed” to “it’s too hot”. The bicycle helmets we sell range from S$49 to S$250 and we brought quality to every price category so the economics of owning a helmet is a weak one when you consider the fact that you need protection to your head when someone hits you.
HOWEVER, when it comes to care of your scalp which could lead to itchiness or hair root aggravation, we do ask that you take note of a few things:
1. Pick a good fit for the helmet
Too tight a fitting or too loose can lead to the helmet pulling on the roots of the hair. The scientific name is traction Alopecia. You can easily avoid any risk of traction alopecia due to wearing a helmet, by using a helmet of the right size that is not too tight or too loose on your head. Do the 2VI method.
While putting on the helmet also ensure that no hair is pulled very tightly by the helmet. Take your time every time you put it on, and continue jiggling and shifting the helmet till you reach the most comfortable position, when no hair is pulled back tightly. Also take care while taking off the helmet.
2.Keep your helmet clean and store it in an airy and hygienic place to avoid hair loss
As your scalp sweats up due to wearing a helmet, the inner layer of the helmet also gets wet with sweat. It is also important to clean the inner lining of your helmet regularly and to ensure that there is no fungal growth on the inner soft layer. Store your helmet in a hygienic and airy place so that it can easily get dried up and is not smelly. We recommend you shower with your helmet after each ride. No, you do not need to wear it but shampoo the straps and inner lining ( BUT we won’t stop you LoL)
3. Stay dry Along with the above you can also follow the following tips to avoid any hair loss caused due to wearing a helmet
Along with the above tips, you can also follow the following to avoid any hair loss caused due to wearing a helmet,
Every time you take a break between rides, take off your helmet as well and give your hairs and the helmet some time to dry out.Towel down to dry faster
Wearing a piece of cloth or scarf on your head, covering your hairs before putting on the helmet can be a very effective way to reduce any risk of hair loss due to helmet. The cotton cloth will reduce any friction between the hairs and the helmet and will also soak the sweat quickly eliminating all the worries. However, always ensure that the cloth is washed and completely clean before putting it on.
“Car-Lite Singapore” by promoting and developing other modes of transport, making them convenient. We have to rely less on cars on the roads because we cannot keep on building roads – more roads for more cars. So we will provide more options for Singaporeans that are better than cars. Buses, more of course. Expanding the MRT network – that is happening everyday – but also other modes of transport for example, bicycling…”
So as a business having helped many get into cycling and owning a folding bike so you can enjoy the various infrastructure that the government has invested in, we spared no efforts to work with manufacturers, suppliers and level headed opinion leaders on what would work? So we completed our first wave of cargo bikes that have their own USPs and features/benefits.
The Kiffy Flash AND Bike Friday Haul-a-Day.
Kiffy Flash – a 2 speed hub adult trike with a front payload
The Kiffy can be disassembled and transformed into a pushable hand cart for use in a grocery store. The 4-foot-9-inch-long bike folds down to take up just 2′ by 2′, so it’s easily rolled into a subway car or an elevator. A clever front suspension system dubbed “Swing” allows the front of the tricycle to tilt like a regular bike, providing stability even on slopes. Front disc brakes keep everything under control. The inventor, Norbert Peytour, says that cycling is a form of care-free travel, with no fuel levels to watch, little to no maintenance, no engine that can fail. He rejects “advances” like the electric bike, which add complexity (and fuel consumption) to the mix.
