10 wheely good bike shops in Singapore


Stocked here are a wide range of acclaimed brands like Niner, Stevens, Kestrel and Fuji, previously available here only in very limited numbers. For day-to-day use, we like Fuji’s practical, urban rides such as the Fuji Nevada ($770) while hardcore off-road junkies will love the mountain bike range from Niner, such as the EMD9 model going for $3,300. If your bike needs some tuning up, the experts on hand offer extensive in-house services, which even include washing facilities.


Cannondale is a name that conjures up some of the best mountain bikes around, whether it’s coming up with first-of-a-kind products or taking a revolutionary approach to cycling like carbon-fiber frames or its latest electronics suspension system. Home to all things Cannondale including their two-wheeled monsters, parts and apparel, this bike chain even has its own cycling team that takes part in races all across Asia.

Coast Cycles

This bike shop/café/general cool-people hangout is a collaborative effort between former pro cyclist Jansen Tan and roasting moguls Papa Palheta. From the outset, it looks like one of those small trendy industrial-styled cafés—enter via the main entrance and you’ll only see tables and the bar counter—with concrete, black steel accents and blonde wood, of course. But the 3,000 sq. ft. space houses a bike repair workshop at the back plus a sizable retail space upstairs—where you can ask embarrassing newbie questions and take their in-house Coastliner bikes ($2,800 upwards) out for test drives around the neighborhood (or just on the rolling trainer, spinning to a playlist by Darker than wax’s Dean Chew).

Fab’s Cycle

Italy produces some of the best bikes in the world and the country also plays host to some of the best races as well, so you know you’re in capable hands when an Italian helms a bicycle shop. Fabrizio Olivieri’s store doesn’t look like your run-of-the-mill bike shop—it’s neat, bright and not cluttered with bike parts and grease. But don’t let the apparent lack of inventory turn you off, Fabrizio (or Fab) can get you almost anything in two-wheels—hybrids, fixed gears, cruisers, MTBs, you name it—within days. People come to this Chinatown store for its cruiser bikes from brands like Nirve, Cinelli and Abici.


This store once had a brick and mortar space in Upper Serangoon but has since moved their business online. They carry impressive-looking two-wheelers from brands like Jango Flik, Louis Garneau and Xootr, as well as really cool accessories such as laptop carriers, leather saddle bags, a bike mount for your iPhone and even a torchlight with a built-in mp3 player. 

Mighty Velo

Set up by two “overweight, overworked 30-somethings” (as stated in the store’s Facebook page), this folding bike specialist carries brands like Brompton, Strida (the small two-wheeler that started the business, after the founders were bombarded with questions on where to get the bike), Montague and Foldy. Bike accessories from Fibre Flare, Akslen, Dosen and more are also available in store to boost your ride. 


This Indonesian chain stocks bikes and equipment from brands including Colnago, Marin, Polygon, Lerun and Cinelli. Experienced and well-informed staff will be able to help you with anything regarding two-wheelers. Apart from selling bikes and its parts, Rodalink also offers maintenance and repair services, test rides as well as bike packing services for overseas trips.


The Japanese biking specialist’s first and only flagship store in Asia has an inventory of minimalist-chic two-wheelers designed specifically for navigating cities (hence its name). If you like what you see, take one out for a test-ride around Haji Lane. There’s also a nice array of Brooks England accessories upstairs at sister store Rivets to make your commute safer and more comfortable.

Treknology Bikes 3

One of Singapore’s largest chain bike stores, Treknology Bikes 3 stocks some of the most reliable bike brands from Gary Fisher to Mirraco. Its knowledgeable staff are active veterans in the local cycling scene and will answer questions about everything from bikes to good cycling areas to fitness information.

Wheeler’s Yard

Tucked away in a nondescript corner of Balestier—though not exactly the most accessible spot—is this ultra-cool bicycle atelier, workshop and cafe unsurprisingly attracting hipsters in droves.  Both avid cyclists and casual riders will be sorely tempted by the wide selection of handmade urban bicycles ($1900 upwards) in an array of colors and sizes. Patrons can also have their own bicycles refurbished by the shop’s experienced mechanics. What’s more, there’s a curated range of imported vintage furniture ($100 upwards) for sale.
