I only have one set of fully functional wheels at the moment – the Gogobike.
It’s rarely used. Each time I ride it I get overwhelmed with just how fun this little toy is. I only planned to ride it to one of the quays to meet with friends for breakfast…then headed over to Orchard Road to people watch with ice cream in hand…
…visited folks at the new LifeCycle in Rangoon Road
…and eventually cycled back to one of the quays for a Japanese dinner.
The total mileage was unexpected and I’m glad to say my little bike did such a good job, I decided to reward it with some new T-One length adjustable grips.
It’s even got me thinking to commute to work on it. My commute has rolling terrain (read: sumkinduva hilly) and while the Brompton is my top commuter choice due to both folded size and the multiple gears, it looks like the Gogobike would do well too. It’s geared low enough that climbing gradual gradients isn’t that difficult, and it’s much lighter overall.
My friend John and his girlfriend Ice took their folding bikes to Guimaras Island and scoped out the scenery. He finally came up with a video documenting it all. Read more about their journey on JohnBunoAdventures.
Isn’t it great that I have friends who like documenting things and doing it well… because, aside from photos, I suck at video editing! Hahaha.
I met up with a friend one Friday night for dinner at the CBD. She was on her newest bike, while I was on mine. 700c and 14″.
Wheel size differences aside, I have to say having your own set of transport is extremely convenient especially when looking for food joints to eat in the CBD after office hours! Everything closes early this side of town.
It doesn’t matter what bike you have, so long as you ride.
