It is not about the bike but the ride Smile We go real slow and with good company the distance just melts away. Oh...also the food and sights will be worth ur while...ask those who join us before..

TW is right! I remember my first ride with the group, I hadn't rode for ages before that but I pulled through!
I was even on a single speed!
I guess its the company and passion that counts Smile

eco C7 is hard to mod into sporty look...

you should just go for one of these models if you want a sporty look.
Dash X20 2011 ($2900)
Hammerhead 2010 ($2700)
Smooth Hound 2010 ($1900)
Silvertip 2010 ($1800)

On Friday night, we cycle about 7.5km at Tanjong Rhu area, our backside very painful... time to buy new padded cycling tight.

hmm instead of discussing here, best is to go down to the bike shop to try the bikes and get good advice!

Sometimes changing the saddle works better than getting padded tights. the padded area only help to cushion, but when riding for really long distance its not that effective anymore. try out other people's saddles, maybe might find a suitable one that wun cause butt pain in the long ride.

both me & wifey switched the default eco C7 saddle with our old mountain bike saddle, immediately felt the difference, at least for me... no more balls squeezing pain.

we are very afraid of the sun, so we cycle mostly at night (after midnight)... last Friday we did 7.5km, hopefully we can do 15km this Friday from our place to east coast park food center and back.
