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.

What is Cureit?

We introduced Fitnox (Nitric Oxide management), Jointplex Pro (Knee and joint pain management) and this is the next – Curcumin from turmeric (For inflammatory conditions) We work with supplement manufacturers that target the root of the problem. Get these supplements at MBS Henderson!

Curcumin is the principal component of the Indian spice, turmeric (Curcuma longa), member of the ginger family (Zingiberaceae). Extensive research is currently focused on Curcumin as a potential novel drug for near future to control various diseases including inflammatory disorders, carcinogenesis, Alzheimer’s disease and oxidative stress-induced pathogenesis

Cureit is one of many products which has received lots of attention and accolade. Cureit is 10x more bio-efficient compared to normal curcumin. The product as well the process (PNS technology) is patented and this is the only curcumin extract which has the full turmeric matrix.

Alex Moulton Double Pylon. Did you know that the late Alex Moulton pioneered the suspension design that went into the Mini?

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$4,400)? Other than the refined components, you will notice

Moulton TSRsthe “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.

What can one choose when you are looking for foldable bikes with 26 inch wheels

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 July 2021. Lets hope the manufacturers can delivery earlier.

Knee pain from cycling?

Just like everything else, the bicycle has to fit the rider’s anatomy. If we ride without adjusting the bicycle to our needs, it could result in knee pain, which is a common issue with riders.knee_pain_man_holding1

The 4 most common causes of knee pains are due to improper saddle height or position, have a crank that is too long for the rider, rider pushing excessively high gears, or poor foot alignment.

Here are a few things you can try out before heading to the doctor’s.
If the pain is in the front of the knee (Anterior Pain):

Pushing too high gears          ->              Lower gear, and increase cadenceknee-anatomy-diagram

Saddle too low or far forward             ->              Raise seat or move seat back

Foot too far forward on the pedal              ->           Move foot back to have toes in line with the pedal

Crank arms too long         ->             Shorten crank arms by 2.5 cm
If the pain is in the back of the knee (Posterior Pain):

Saddle too high or far back          ->          Lower seat, or move seat forward

Too much pedal float             ->           Limit float to 6 – 8 degrees
If the pain is in the inner side of the knee (Medial Pain):

Incorrect foot position on pedal (toes pointed out)          ->             Narrow foot position by adjusting foot parallel to bicycle

Too little pedal float          ->              Limit float to 6 – 8 degrees

If the pain is in the outer side of the knee (Lateral Pain):

Incorrect foot position on pedal (toes pointed in)          ->              Widen foot position by adjusting foot parallel to bicycle
Too little pedal float           ->             Limit float to 6 – 8 degrees

If all else fails, you might just need supplements to aid you. Consider Jointplex Pro. We sell  them and many experience its efficacy.

Care for your helmet, helps you take care of your scalp

Very often we have customers who refuse to don a bicycle helmet for various WRONG

helmet_hair_banner (2).jpeg

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

CCp-hFMW8AAYQrs

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.

Image result for Alopecia traction

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 Shower.jpgwet 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.
