Re: Cycling - need saddle consultation?

I use Brooks seats on my bikes. They are leather and eventually (1000kms) conform to your butt. Once run in* comfortable enough to wear normal non-padded shorts. One of those seats has seen about 70k kms over 15 years. Looks a bit battered (sun and rain) but it's still comfortable. Seat height is p...

Re: Cycling - need saddle consultation?

The height of the saddle also matters and should be adjusted to your height. Better still, if you do not intend to replace the saddle, you can buy a saddle cushion cover to make your ride more comfortable. You can easily put it on top of an existing saddle and will definitely give you a comfortable...

Cycling - need saddle consultation?

Hi All, Would like to reach out to the Cycling community. Recently got into Cycling with a city style cruiser bike. We ride with my 2 year old in a child seat at the back. The cheap saddle that comes with the bike is uncomfortable, and online reading suggests a good start is to have a consultation o...

Re: Fewer marriages, more divorces last year

Given the restrictions on crowds/ gatherings, it is no surprise that weddings are down. Brides won’t be having their dream day, and banquets have no chance for cost recovery. Feel sorry for any couple unable to get full refunds on weddings booked these next 2 years... Sent from my iPhone using Tapat...

Re: Health Screening using DNA In Singapore

Worst case scenario- data gets hacked, sold or given up to health insurance companies, police or government authorities. For insurance companies, worst case is claim denial for genetic condi...

Re: Lose 13KG in 3 months .....

SMS, What’s great is that somehow none of the women in my team lost weight, somehow they all gained more! During CB, I switched from beer to wine. I realised I was also sinking a beer or 2 after work, with fries and fish skin, or other junk. I now have 2 glasses of (mainly red) wine with dinner for ...
