We have heard of many stories where social groups and sport groups leverage on their strength in unity for the better of society. Salute to all these good efforts! One such efforts that caught our attention was the Foreknow Fat Bike Club’s recent event – Vesak Day Rice Donation. What started off as a simple charity plus ride event grew over its preparation period to a full-fledged event that surprised even their own club members.

Fat bikes were once the FAD toy for every occasion – beachfront cruising, cafe crawls, off road trails, sandy stretches, post rain muddy fields. We are seeing fewer of them around lately. Amongst us, there’s still a group of diehard fans for these wide-track rigs. We met the guys from Foreknow Fat Bike Club.
We have always dreamt of a hardy bike that is easy on maintenance, competently enjoyable at any type of trails wherever we travel and possessing timeless killa good looks that makes us look good all the time. (Ed: Sounds like a dream any mountain biker would have … ) The addition of the Ohlins RFX36 M2 Air Fork and the TTX22M Coil shock to one of our project bikes could be the final piece to fulfil this dream.

British slopestyle rider Matt Jones has attempted to tear up the mountain bike rulebook in his first Red Bull TV Series Design & Conquer.
We have seen the likes of Danny McAskill and Chris Akrigg bringing bike trials and street trials to the next level of exposure on social media. Always a blast to watch their latest video edits. But, did you know that there’s a handful of such warriors amongst us too? Many of these riders had since moved on from riding solely on their trial bikes to mountain bikes. Nigel Chen is one such warrior who has been enjoying his riding time both on the streets and off-road trails with a beautiful mix of mountain bike and street trials styles. Bikezilla sought some advice from the man.

While street riders are perfectly adept at living off street features, there would always be this longing for a “true home base”. A place for events, gatherings and regular practice sessions. Not all BMX riders are park riders, but it is always good practice to spend some time at the BMX park. Added that there are rails and boxes that allows for more dedicated training as compared to random street features, a BMX Park would greatly help to get new riders up to speed and experienced riders rise to their next levels. Sadly, this “home base” event ground was not in its best condition. “Let’s rebuild this BMX Park.”

It was a weekday afternoon when I met Jefni. What got my attention was the sticker on his 12 year-old Diamond Back mountain bike. There was a sticker made up of Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand country flags. I got curious and walked over to ask the owner did he pasted those stickers on the bike because he cycled to these places. He smiled and told me he toured to Thailand with this bike. I was impressed.
