    whats so positive about that?just because u decided to leave the house and go out for some exercise?whats positive for you is just another day in hell for the rest of us.

    and only a chao sinkie would be so impresses by a bunch of ugly park connectors and piers in a concrete jungle,or a tourist,for the rest of us it just reminds me that we are stuck in this shithole,this 30 by 40km squared Alcatraz prison/center for rehabilitation for the rich/theme park.

    show us some real nature pls,like the mountains and bike trails and ocean cliffs in california,or the country roads and sunset in normandy,or melbourne park.

    Eatshitndie (voiceover): overcast but cool. A few drops of heavenly juice to soothe the sinkie soul. You head out to marina, past the bay sand, park connectors where I skated as a kid. Blow your vintage bike-horn and throw a air wave to the angmoh kids on marina park. Then sinkies showed up: young sinkies, lau aunties, buangkokway. The sun hits ya - head south. Open up to 12 - steamin' now. The bikes are busy; you're in charge. Ya know what? You're a goddamn ah pek biker. Is there any thing better in the world? ;)

    I am seeing many of these "OFFO" yellow coloured bikes in many of the blocks around me, at the bicycle bays...have examined them & saw saw school children riding them around....we need an app, to start one of these right?. I have seen rows of light green coloured bicycles, outside Dongman MRT Station in Taipei....have any other tried the OFFO bikes?...they are free right? The other thing is, you fall off one, is their Insurance cover?

    will miss that opening but chanced upon a mini marathon on east coast near tanah merah. also saw many atas riders in atas gear going very fast and then suddenly disappearing at makan center next to lagoon at bedok. they were for sure sinkies scrambling to get a table there as it was crowded at weekend. today i go-pro'ed the route from siglap to tanah merah just before the start of the new cycling lane. shiok. many charbor with bobbing boobs.

    think it is "at your own risk" when you fall off one. no insurance coverage. yes you need the app. many are lying around in the neighborhood and no one is picking them up. at least in bay area there are docking stations. here in sg anyhow junk the bike. eventually everyone has free bikes no one will steal my rickety lau ah pek bike.

    That's a time trial bike. They are very hard to ride.

    Ah so!, if someone, tamper with the brakes, I fell off, breaking my teeth or someone remove the seat & it skewed my family heirloom, I can't claim insurance from my insurer?

    I see school children playing with the bicycles, so far & like you say, are dumped all over the place. Wonder if there is any alarms, GPS tracking, in built cameras...can we dismantle the attachments?

    They are FREE at the moment, even not free...they are made to be used, not made for comfort !...want comfort, buy one & configure to your satisfaction..

    To ride a time trial bike efficiently you need to spend months getting used to the time trial position. Otherwise you won't even last 5 km hunched over the aero bars before the pain and fatigue kills you.
