Trek, if you are trying to make a statement.

Aleco if you are just a weekend rider would want a bike but doesn't want to spend a month or two's wages getting one.

Hey SMS, can you recommend a cycle shop? I am going to price a couple of bikes up this weekend. I hope we don't have to pay import tax, 4 times mark-up, and bid for a COE cert??!!

Can't really, as I'm still riding an original "Iron Horse" mountain bike I bought as my "last" bike on my 50th birthday! That was 13 years ago! :o

There is a new shop in the Ang Mo Kio 5 industrial estate at the corner of Ang Mo Kio Ave 5 & Yio Chu Kang Road that's about 1 klick away from my flat that I stepped into the other day. It's got a range from several hundred to 5 digits carbon fibre beauties. In fact, it got me wanting to buy something like a boulevard cruiser with the 8 speed internal rear hub (doing away with the derailleur system) Might be worth a walk into. Otherwise, I usually go to the little guy selling crap Taiwanese bikes or mostly do everything myself.

I'll take a look at AMK. I only want something cheap for my paper-round in the morning, and so I can stretch my legs in the evening!! Thanks!!
