Recently I itchy backside, bought a cheapo cina foldie from Taobao.



1) The brakes are not tuned - I could do that
2) The saddle is not comfy - I could change that
3) The rear tire is giving out squeeky sound (as if u were walking on a waxed floor with your rubber sneaker).

I thinking to bring down the bike to a mechanic to get it fix up. Any recommendation? I stay in Old Airport Rd

tire give put squeeky sound could be due to wax layer (not season yet)

usually tire too clean then will have squeaky sound haha. As Zack said, just keep riding and it should go away. If not, then its probably not the tire already.

Regards,
Steve

I did took out the tire to check, definitely not sticky. It will only squeak when apply force on the tire, ie simply riding the bike or push and rub the tire really hard on the ground.

I'll give it a few more rounds around the estate to see if its goes away. Thanks guys.

Maybe it is the hubs giving out the squeaky sound due to friction? apply some grease if so..

I finally brought it to see Ah Pek. After greasing and tuning, the squeaking had reduced. His comment: 'the bike was not tuned at all'...which I think he's right. The bike was probably was in "factory" mode without being tuned by SiFu. Its now in good shape Smile
