    I love my Oyama East Village bike to death. It fits my purpose perfectly as the ultimate commute companion.

    Some features I like are as follows:

    1. It rolls on the two main driving wheels and...

    I'm basically looking for an unmounted device for switching chainrings. I don't know what exactly a good tool for this purpose might look like or how it might work.

    Just to be clear (for some who seem to have missed the point).

    A FD is useful for shifting on the move. As it is I don't really need a FD as I can predict what chainring I would need before...

    Since my compact is a Doval non-circular type, an IG crankset would not work as aligning the chainrings would be impossible.

    Ha! You'd be surprised. Aside from the brake levers, on the left hand I've got an Airzound trigger plus rear view mirror. The right side the IGH shifter, handlebars forward camera, bell. Both sides...

    This is the idea, but I was looking for something built for the purpose.



    That suicide derailleur is interesting. Never saw one of those before.

  8. Do any of you switch chainrings manually? Are there any tools available for the job?

    I recently switched from a single 48T chainring to a 52T/38T Doval compact.

    The frame can accommodate a front derailleur. However I have been reluctant to add any further clutter to my handlebars...

    If you can return the bike then maybe you should. Making these sort of modifications can be expensive, and unnecessary if there are other options out there. Also I'm not sure about warranty...

    Yes the stock specs seem wrong. There are several websites that do the gear inches calculation (try a web search). Here is another:

    BikeCalc.com - Bicycle Gear Inches Chart

    Same result though.

    Draw what you imagine their faces to look like on cardboard boxes and punch them up after you get back.

    Interestingly I note that none of the BMX tires tout puncture protection. I suppose it's not a major problem for BMX use.

    I suppose the Marathons are the way to go then. Sigh @ my poor thumbs.

    Side walk cycling is illegal. But the law is not enforced as very often there are no other safe options. The majority of cyclists in Singapore use the sidewalk.

    BMX tires for a city use folding bike?

    My folding bike uses 406 wheels and currently runs on Kojak tires. The rear tire is damaged so I need to change it.

    I'm considering BMX tires for their width and possibly improved comfort.
