No need. By right the boot of the cab should be able to take a full size bike, depending if the driver want to take or not..
The boot will not be able to close totally, the driver have to assist by using a bicycle hook to secure the hood and the bike.
But of cos if you book the cab, the cab LL must take your bike.. lol

Actually the old cab model is big enough to fit without removing the front wheel. A cab uncle once shared with me that cab drivers are actually obliged to transport full size bike too, and my roadie fitted into his boot without needing to remove front wheel. sadly many cab drivers nowadays pick their customers like supermarket shopping..

I stay at Toa Payoh. Hmmm in that case most likely will just order a cab that morning. Thanks all for the advice!

I saw a man @IMM bought his bike from Giant. Taxi driver very helpful to put the bike right to reduce damage. Although it caused a minor commotion as its hogging the taxi queue...kekekeke.

My fren rides a rodie. He usually removed both his wheels when he needs to pack into taxi
