    Bro... you need to help your kid to balance first, there are no training wheels. as you carry on you can get a feel of the level of balance your kid has achieved. when you feel they are ready, let go of the handle without their notice and grab back when they start to sway. helps to build confidence. for me i just tell my kid to look in front and give them a running start and let her glide till a stop. although she can now cycle, the pole is still there for me to garb when we go cycling just in case.

    my tip; attach a pvc pipe around the joint of the seat tube and seat stay of your kids bike. and also secure to the seat post. use rope and good knots. what you want to accomplish is a tube sticking out from behind the seat. this will help save your back, and gives good control over the bike. with that you can walk / jog behind your kid when teaching them to balance and pedal. always ask them to look far in front when on the bike. when they are ready you can give them a push to gain some speed (speed is needed to balance) good luck and enjoy. PS: you can attach a T joint at the end of the tube to get a better grip.

    2017 Hyundai i30

    The I30 was rated with full safety gears loaded. 6 bags sensors etc. The one we get in SG is missing many stuff. At best 3 stars if this model went for the test.

    Safety important? if so get another car with better safety features. I was also looking at the i30 but the lack of airbags was disappointing. in the end went for a focus.

    Focus or fiesta? I'm driving a focus 2008 and it's bang on straight.

    Oh the offset is also on the left hand drive cars. What the hell happened to "German precision".

    Think this will be a new pet peeve of mine.

    Honda Vezel - Part 3

    Hi guys looking to get the vezel hybrid. Any issue to take note off? Understand that the transmission is DCT with the electric motor attached? What is the confidence you guys have that it will last? Or is the local work shops ready for such a complex gear box? Heard the battery don't last? Some recall from Honda? Any issues you can share would be nice.

    Surprising! I would have thought a bigger car would not have this issue. Lazy engineering? Anyway E class above my grade. Just looking for a replacement for my focus.
  13. Noticed that the golf and leon have weird sitting positions. The steering wheel feels off centered. Can the drivers of these makes confirm. Of is it just me? Also noticed that the leg room on the passenger side feels bigger then the driver's side. Weird. Maybe it's because of my height? 179cm? Any other makes have this issue?
