Erm ok my 2 cts worth

A hybrid = mountain bike with slick tyres.

Road bike is a bike designed for road cycling

A hybrid is more versatile , you can switch the wheel to accommodate a xc terrain but you can't do the same for road bike.

If you're intending to get a bike, the minimum items must have are

- Helmet
- Rear blinker ( Red )
- Front blinker ( White)

P.S - one of the unwritten rule for cyclist is to hog the lane. Especially if a group goes together they should hog the entire left lane. It is much more safe for a cyclist, rather then keeping to the extreme left side of the road. This will result in cars squeezing pass you and this would be dangerous especially for newbies.

i cycled from sungei gudong to bukit timah before... quite shiok, esp in the night.

but yes, singapore roads is not friendly to cyclist. i kenna skinned by a bus before, hit a few pop-holes on the road, skidded too.

the news just recently topped it all about a car rammed a group of cyclist.

take care, bro kian. golf should be safer lah. and more friendly to your family jewels too.

But that road is a single lane.... Shocked
Is it more advisable to try out a hybrid first before venturing out on a road bike for a beginner? The slick tires on hybrid wunt puncture if go over humps hor?
