  1. Anyone got stuck on PIE last evening for more than an hour and half? A few of us in the team did so, no thanks to someone who swerved out at the last minute, causing an accident that required a huge cleaning-up effort from the authorities. Thanks to SG Road Vigilante, we now know what caused the accident which happened at PIE's Steven Road exit in the direction of Jurong, at 630pm. While the accident itself didn't cause any serious injury, it is obvious that the Mazda 3 driver was at fault. According to the comments online, it does look like he or she was trying to avoid a frontal collision in his/her own lane by swerving into lane 2 but that unfortunately meant that the 2 motorcyclists that were lane-spliting, had to fall due to such a move. Kudos to both the tipper truck and the Malaysian van for being reactive to what was happening in front of them!

    Class 2 Bike Choices

    Moving forward... The 899 seems like such a perfect choice for a Class 2 bike. 848 Evo vs 899 Panigale

    Need Recommendations for a bicycle

    Friends, the West Coast green corridor is opening soon and I'm trying to take advantage of it and get a decent bike. I would like a more lightweight bicycle. I recently acquired a Raleigh R9 MTB, which is supposed to weigh 13kg but feels heavier and it doesn't manoeuvre so well. I am hoping to get something lighter and where I sit more upright for some light cycling. I'm no MAMIL! hahah A hybrid bike, is fine, folding is a bonus. Budget 500 to a max of 999, but I rather not go so high. I prefer non 2nd hand, but if it's almost new, I'm open. Saw a $390 bike at Decathlon - not bad, just a tad heavy... Riverside 500? Something like that but lighter... Any ideas? Places to buy / demo? Thanks
  4. Now this is pretty high level stuff. We have yet to see anyone try escaping ERP charges like this Malaysian biker did. Posted on ROADS.sg and COMPLAINT SINGAPORE's Facebook page is a clip of a Malaysian biker trying to 'siam' the ERP gantry by riding off road. The video is pretty self explanatory as we can see the Gantry on the slip road from the PIE merging into the CTE towards Ang Mo Kio, with the Motorcyclist slowly bumping along on the grass. That is some commitment there for sure, we reckon.
  5. Ever seen one of these foldable bicycles? The guy below probably has not. Now, this might not be very useful information (because it is not allowed) but apparently, our local train's railing can support a non-foldable bicycle. We thought it is an ingenious way to park or store one away. For those who are wondering what on earth is happening, below is an extract replicated from SMRT... "Some of you may have come across a video that is circulating online about a commuter with a bicycle on board a train. At around 7.10pm on 15 Dec, an SMRT staff tried to stop a male commuter with a non-foldable bicycle from entering the train at Woodlands station. The male commuter was uncooperative and forced his way into a north-bound train. The commuter subsequently transferred to a west-bound train at Jurong East station and exited at Pioneer station at about 7.50pm. We have since identified the commuter and made a police report. For the safety and comfort of all commuters, we would like to remind everyone to observe regulations when bringing foldable bicycles and personal mobility devices on board trains and buses." Check out what netizens have to say about this guy who flouted the law...

    Is this guy trying to be police or funny?

    Hello nieces and nephews, this is your uncle Koba here again. Hello. Today, we have this guy who is trying too hard to fulfil his boyhood dream of becoming traffic police. Spotted on Road.sg, this Honda ST1300 - a road touring bike which is kinda familiar to our SPF choice of weapon, the Yamaha XJ900T. Let's have a look. Wait a sec. Fuiyoh! He is a whole package! A long long time ago, there must be young handsome traffic police who gave him a helping and makes him remember how cool traffic police is and since then, he got inspired to becoming one. Alrighty, so nieces and nephews, please take a second look at our traffic police when you spotted one. It may and may not be one.
  7. Now this is one heartening sight! Our local police force is working hard to catch bad-behaving vehicles on our roads! Seen on SG Road Vigilante is this video of an unmarked Traffic Police vehicle zooming up fast on the AYE towards Tuas to catch a motorbike on 13th of December 2020. We can't really see why the bike was being stopped but according to the source, it is a Malaysian-registered bike with a mini rear number plate. While having such a number plate is an offence in our sunny island, we thought the police might also be catching the biker for a speeding offence or having a loud exhaust. As for the rest of us, we now know when you see a white Mazda 3, it might not be a Private Hire Vehicle but an Unmarked Traffic Police car!
  8. FoodPanda Rider’s Bike Clamped Outside A&E, Khoo Teck Puat Hospital Said It Obstructed Entrance Source: https://mustsharenews.com/foodpanda-riders-bike-clamped/ FoodPanda Rider’s Bike Wheel Clamped To Prevent Similar Incidents In The Future We often see food delivery riders whizzing around on their bikes as they go about their deliveries. On Thursday (5 Nov), a FoodPanda delivery rider allegedly parked his bike along one of the walkways at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH). Unfortunately for him, his bike was wheel-clamped as it was obstructing the entrance of the A&E department. The rider has since apologised and the matter was resolved. FoodPanda delivery rider’s bike clamped On Thursday (5 Nov), Facebook group SG Road Vigilante shared a picture of the FoodPanda rider’s bike getting wheel-clamped. A printed notice could also be seen on the bike. The bike was allegedly parked along the walkway of the A&E department at KTPH. According to the post, the bike was clamped as personal mobility devices (PMD) are not allowed in hospitals. Bike was obstructing A&E entrance Speaking to MS News, a KTPH spokesperson revealed that the bike was obstructing the walkway entrance of the A&E care centre. Hospital staff attempted to get in touch with the rider but to no avail. The spokesperson also shared that they chose to clamp the bike to prevent similar situations in the future. KTPH apparently has designated parking lots for PMDs and riders should not park at unauthorised locations. Eventually, the hospital managed to trace down the bike owner, who was apologetic about the matter. The case was eventually resolved “amicably” and the rider was not subjected to any penalty. Be responsible about parking PMD It certainly isn’t an everyday sight to see a bike get wheel-clamped. The incident serves as an important reminder to be responsible about where we park PMDs, especially at places like hospitals. Riders should always park at designated spaces whenever available.
  9. Which do you prefer? I have seen many rental bike-sharing these days , but more easily spotted near MRTs. Personally, I like oBike as they have many and need not any deposits. Seen this somewhere in the news: Ofo raises US$700m in Series E; Mobike unveils new bikes; oBike says it has local advantage. So far what have you tried and which do you prefer? Do share. Cheers and thanks
  10. Did these ppl ride on public road?? If yes, then suck thumb. If not, they can just ride all they want in a private property without LTA/TP jurisdiction.
  11. Spotted somewhere on the many pages of Facebook is a post where a motorcyclist managed to do a proposal with the help of his mates on the road. Done somewhere in our MCE tunnel, Hasan Sanny and his wife-to-be were supposed to be married on the 29th of Aug 2020. However due to the pandemic, the wedding had to be postponed. Not wanting to let that defeat him, the motorcyclist got his friends who then rode on 3 different bikes and wore t-shirts with the words "Marry Me ?" to carry out the proposal. Did he managed to get his girl of his dream? Watch the video here and see for yourself!
  12. Remember the time when a video of an LTA enforcement officer that stopped an offending PMD rider by giving the rider a good kick, causing the offender to fall off his PMD? Now, something similar is going viral in Malaysia. According to The Star, the incident happened in Sibu, a town in Sarawak, Malaysia where two police officers were conducting a spot check at Jalan Temple around noon. A motorcyclist that was approaching the road block decided to turn around to avoid them but failed to do so when one of the officers acted quickly by giving the biker a martial art-style kick. In the report, Sibu OCPD Asst Comm Stanley Jonathan Ringgit explained that the offender works at the a hotel nearby and has several offences to his name. Other than not having a driving license and having a modified bike, its road tax has also expired and it was not covered under any insurance too. 46687388_923477234821643_832602979362855331_n.mp4

    Young punks on PMDs strike again!

    You can't blame the authorities when videos like this leak onto the internet, prompting the government on clamping down on PMDs (Personal Mobility Device). With more than 600 comments as of press time on SG Road Vigilante's latest video post blasting on these YP (Young Punks), this is one viral video. From the video, we can see the motorcyclist (with his friendly gesture) , 'escorting' the bunch of them from bukit timah road, passing by Raffles Hospital before going up to the Benjamin Sheares bridge and stopping at Marina Bay area for some rest. In the clip, we can also see them overtaking traffic easily with no regard for the speed limit of PMDs. No thanks to the friend who 'sabo-ed' the group and leaked the clearly-shot video out, we are fairly certain the authorities will be knocking on their doors soon... Check out what netizens have to say about them about below!
  14. Posted by the people of SG Road Vigilante are photos of some bikes parked along the pavement of Ang Mo Kio Ave 9, near the Yio Chu Kang Sport Complex. The photos, which showed quite a few bikes on the pavement, were taken on the 20th of July and captured the bikes all parked neatly on the side of the pavement. Despite the many available parking lots in the carpark which the bikes were already in, the owners of the bikes were said to have parked it on the pavement instead as they wanted their bikes to be in the shade. A quick glance at the comments saw many netizens flaming and taunting SG Road Vigilante as the bikes parked there actually belonged to police officers who worked at the nearby AMK police HQ. Interestingly, SG Road Vigilante retaliated and filed a complaint with the OneService platform. We hope they update everyone on whether these bike owners will get any form of punishment...
  15. Spotted on SG Road Vigilante's facebook page is this amusing photo of a motorbike's number plate. According to them, this was taken on 1st of July 2020 at Bukit Batok West Edge and the bike in question is a Yamaha Aerox. We have no idea why would someone flout the law to do this. To improve aerodynamics? To make the bike look bigger than it is? Or to make it harder to be identifed by the Traffic Police's camera and Traffic Police wannabes on SG Road Vigilante? What do you all think?
  16. appeal for witness for an accident which happened on 6 Jun 2018 around 5.15pm at the roundabout near Pioneer Road North? It involved my colleague who is riding a Malaysia bike JKE2804
  17. Now this is not something the residents of Ang Mo Kio get to see everyday! A Traffic Police officer has apparently skidded on the wet floor and crashed his Yamaha bike at the lift lobby of Block 619 Ang Mo Kio. As reported by SG Road vigilante, the incident happened on 27 May 2020 and eye witnesses claim that the officer was trying to chase another motorbike through the void deck when the police officer lost control and hit the wall. The comments by netizens were generally supportive of the officer going all the way in the fight for justice, with the usual few negative views here and there.

    Where to buy cheap/good kids bike

    Hi all, Recently researching on kids bike - planning to get another one as my kids outgrown the smaller 12" bike. Maybe 16" bike is the next step. Checked out a few hypermart and small bike shops and realised that kids bike can cost more than small MTB and the quality is damn bad. ie, 16" kids bike at $80+ but a small mountain bike is having promo at $79.90 and of course the parts of the MTB such as V Brakes are much better than the plasticky and stiff brakes on the 16" bike. I remembered when I was young, my small bike quite good quality but seems like nowadays it's impossible to find such bikes anymore, even if that means paying much more than those small MTB. Feel like buying the small MTB but too big for my kids lah. Also feel kinda wasted that few years ago I threw away my old dia-compe alloy brakes. Should have kept them and install on my kids bike. Any advise? I'm sure there'ld be fathers here who went thru exactly the same process?
  19. Good news or bad news? Your views? Cyclists and users of personal mobility devices (PMDs) such as e-scooters will soon have to adhere to a lower speed limit when travelling on footpaths, after the Government accepted an advisory panel’s recommendations. Starting early 2019, the current 15kmh speed limit on footpaths for PMDs and bicycles will be brought down to 10kmh. The lower speed will give PMD users, cyclists and pedestrians enough time to react to each other in unforeseen circumstances, the Ministry of Transport (MOT) said on Tuesday (Sep 4). “All riders must continue to give way to pedestrians and slow down when approaching crowded areas or blind spots. Riders should also exercise caution when overtaking other path users,” the ministry said in a press release. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/e-scooters-bicycles-speed-limit-footpaths-cut-to-10kmh-pmds-10682204
  20. Cars and cycling seldom go well together. But in the case of Skoda, cycling and bicycles are rooted deep in its heritage. In fact, Skoda first produced bicycles before cars. It is still deeply passionate about it - Skoda even has a website all about cycling, called We Love Cycling. Plus, Skoda has supported other cycling races around the world, such as the Tour de France, and the Titan Challenge - a six-day mountain bike stage set in the desert. Deserts are certainly tough for vehicles, not just cyclists. But Skoda has in fact completed the Dakar Rally with a Kodiaq support car, too. Skoda pushes on with two wheels closer to home. This time, it is for the Charity Bike ‘n’ Blade, a cycling event with a charitable cause. Charity Bike ‘n’ Blade started out in 2005 from a group of passionate cyclists. The 12th edition this year will benefit The Salvation Army’s Peacehaven Nursing Home. This is Skoda’s second partnership with the Charity Bike ‘n’ Blade as Official Safety Car. The six support cars for the ride included the Karoq, the Kodiaq, the Superb, two Octavias and of course, the hot-blooded Octavia RS245. Setting off on Friday morning, we headed to Ipoh for a night's rest, as we will be heading up to Cameron Highlands in the wee hours of Saturday. Some 50 cyclists will be taking part in this leg up, Cameron, with a distance of about 61km. Now, 61km might not seem like a challenge (we're not cyclists), but with over 1,000m of upward elevation to the top, and Malaysia's tropical climate, it is a pretty daunting task. The six support cars will be tasked with different duties. The Kodiaq would be at the back of the cycling pack, working as the sweeper. The Octavia RS, on the other hand, was the lead car, which included running up and down the hill in search of cyclists who needed help, or water and bananas. The lead car would raise signals to the nearest available support Skodas and appropriate team to leap forward and assist. Therefore, the performance of the RS really came in handy. The Karoq, Octavia and the Superb would then carry out duties ranging from medical and technical assistance to distributing food and drinks along the route. Our chariot of choice was the Skoda Superb 1.8 TSI Ambition. From what we saw, Skodas were perfect for the tasks on hand. The Kodiaq, with its higher ride height, allowed the volunteers to have a better view of the road and cyclists ahead of them. Volunteers driving the Kodiaq also told us that the height also gave him the added advantage of being at eye level with the cyclists, whenever he needed to pull up to their side and convey a message to them. Plus, with more than an adequate performance from the turbocharged engines, all Skodas were able to make the climb up and down Cameron quickly to attend to the cyclists' needs. The Superb was perfect for us, too, as its performance and comfort-oriented suspension meant that we could quickly get to where the action was. The practicality of Skodas across the range played a big part. While roof and bicycle racks can be fitted to all cars, Skodas excel in interior space, too. So all the cars could fit big ice coolers for drinks, including spare bicycle wheels, cycling gear, tools and first aid supplies if there was a need for it. By 11:00 am, some riders had in fact reached the endpoint, and most of the cyclists made it to the lunch stop by noon. With the help of Skoda’s support vehicles and volunteers, all of the cyclists made it up. From our short experience covering a cycling event up close and in action, the Skodas proved to be versatile, reliable and always ready to go. It thus also makes sense that Skoda has been the official vehicle for one of the biggest cycling events in the world, the Tour de France, for the 16th year running.

    Bike Rack

    Does anyone know where I can procure a bike rack(not roof) for my Lancer EX? Is the rack easily detachable and does anyone know the approx price of such a rack? Also, how safe is it to park the car with a bike attached? Have there been cases of bikes or bike parts being stolen? Thanks!
  24. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/owners-of-older-motorcycles-will-get-up-to-s-3-500-for-de-10110120 I am not sure if I am reading this wrong, but this means that you can ride your lao kok kok bike until 20 years and still get $3500 back, which would be impossible if you sell or scrap!!! Resale values of old bikes with <5 years left on their 2nd COE are going to increase significantly liao, taking into account the $3500 you can get back at the end of COE. Honestly I am cursing now becos I just sold my 16+ year old CB400...dammit.
