Welcome to Halfbike community in Singapore. I am expecting my Halfbike 3 between mid to end of August. If you want to try out the Halfbike in Singapore, just contact me. We can meetup for a chat and ride around session. Everyone is welcome to share your thoughts and questions. Cheers.

Hi! Just got my halfbike 3 also.. Very fun to ride, I was thinking if there's any good pedal out there in Sg with a bigger surface area though
(halfbiker) 2 years ago
The was a discussion about the Pedal Innocation's Catalyst pedal. You can check it down this thread > halfbikes.com/pimp-my-halfbike

Hi Gideon, That’s great. I’m still waiting for mine. Lol. Let’s meet up when I received my halfbike 3.

@Kee Tong Yeah sure man, I wasn't careful and fell down at q a high speed.. lol, can't ride for a week or so. Maybe we can make a telegram group for SG riders? I saw the catalyst pedal, but I might wanna try clipless pedals, I find the pedal slips from my foot alot when I pedal
(halfbiker) 2 years ago
@Gideon, I just had my 1st ride over the weekend and it feels great. I had been riding a standing bike for a few years so is relatively easy for me to start pedaling. Both bike looks similar, however they are very different in contruction and ride feel. Hope you have recovered. I think we should keep the SG group chat public to encourage everyone to join us.

Great to hear! Yeah I'm better, have still been struggling to ride after about 6 hours of training over past 3 weeks. It's hard to get used to the standing experience and I fear falling but it's feels great. I got the catalyst pedals and bigger handlebars, helps alot lol. Yeah man, let's meet up next time and ride tgt!

Hi, looking for some fun equipment that can provide full body exercise. Stumble upon HB website. Considering to purchase one. Not sure HB2 or HB3 is suitable for beginners like me? Any recommendation from the extg rider? "-)
(halfbiker) 2 years ago
Hey Tesa, With both Halfbikes you'll need some time to learn to ride and get used to them. When designing the Halfbike 3 we took all the feedback we had from HB2 so it's better in every way. Here you can see a side by side comparison of the two models www.halfbikes.com/compare

Hey guys! Newbie here. May I know please, if there’s an authorised retailer, or seller of Halfbikes here in SG? Is it better to order directly from them? I’d like to purchase the Halfbike3. Cheers! =)

Hi @Jovi, I don't think there is a authorised reseller for SG yet. @Halfbike may want to share if there is. Hi @Anthony, hope you enjoy the ride.

Hi all, am thinking of getting one. Is there any additional tax/import duties that we need to pay when shipping to SG?
(halfbiker) 1 year ago
@Alex, yes. You will have to pay local GST when it’s delivered.
(halfbiker) 1 year ago
Thanks @Kee Tong! Yeah, Irina from Halfbike sent me an email and notified me that we can only get one from them. I don’t want to buy a 2nd hand one, as it’s supoosed to be customised for each rider. I’ll be one proud owner soon! =) Cheers! Stay safe!

how easy to ride

Hi I’m thinking of getting a half bike and would appreciate any help in making that decision How difficult is it to ride it? Can it be used on pedestrian paths? How like skiing is it? Thank you for your help!

Hi fellow SG halfbikers & to-be, I'm letting go of my halfbike 3 as it is under utilised. If is sad for me as I love the design and engineering of such an elegant bike. However, it is also a waste for it to be collecting dust at my home. Someone else might be able to utilise it better. Drop me a note if you are interested & we can arrange something.

Hi Kee Tong.. I'm the one who replied you one year ago. My bike also collecting dust. Lol, but plan to take it out again after I pump the tires. @MH G., @Mohd Rafiq G It's like learning how to ride a new equipment, have to learn how to balance and steer with the back wheel. I still have trouble going in straight line and steering sharply so I don't ride on pedestrian paths as too narrow. From my experience the kick off part is similar to riding bicycle, then it's about the balancing

Hi guys, I’m thinking of getting halfbike, but am wondering how steep is the learning curve for someone who is 176cm and 100kgs.. also how long of a distance have you guys gone on the halfbike? Don’t suppose I could use this to go leisure “cycling” with friends on actually bikes?

Hi Sarah, Sure, you can come to Yew Tee anytime this week except for Wednesday morning. You can WhatsApp me @ EightSixDoubleNineTripleTreeNine

Hi Gideon, I agree, have to be very focus when riding on narrow pathways. I Imagine myself like a F1 driver steering with many small correction. That’s me on a narrow paths. LOL.

Hi Everyone, Saw somebody riding an elliptigo bike recently and went to the Internet to check it out and came across this halfbike. Looks more interesting than the elliptigo bike and smaller in size. Anyone can advise where I can rent one for a couple of hours to try it out before buying one? Just want to get the feel of riding in a standing position and whether I can handle it. Thank you.

I just heard about this. any experienced rider who has tried up hill? how does it go? I didn't see any gear system on the big wheel and the chain goes straight to the center gear, I guess that would be pretty heavy to go into any slope. Care to share?
(halfbiker) 1 year ago
Hi Michael, The Halfbike 3 comes with a 4 gear internal gear hub. Also we offer a choice of different small sprockets. You can learn more about them here > halfbikes.com/how-does-the-halfbike-perform-up-hill

Read about the halfbike a long time ago and was interested in it; thinking about the possibility of purchasing one since its available to buy from Singapore. However i am curious about how it will fare in typical Singapore pavement usage; there are some areas where the pavement has a steep dropoff onto the car roads and then a steep incline back onto pavement (e.g at entrances to HDB areas/carparks etc). Is the halfbike more for casual/leisure (at ECP etc), or can it also handle commuting on SG pavements?

Hi, keen for test ride. This is new from Singapore

Hi All, Keen to own a half bikes, prior doing that, can anyone advise me where can I do the test ride?? I am located @ west part of Singapore.... thanks you for your reply
(halfbiker) 1 year ago
@Daniel.L, as there is no store in SG, you need to rely on an existing owner. The HB isn't a bike you immediately get the 'wow' factor from. This chart summarises the experience - halfbikes.com/learning. What is it you want to know before buying one and having some fun?
(halfbiker) 1 year ago
@Wei Qiang, the HB can manage most terrain you throw at it. The pavements are not that different from European pavements! As you become more comfortable riding it, you will become more confident in tacking more challenging situations. It will not take long.

Hi everyone! I'm new to the halfbike experience and just started riding a couple weeks ago. However, I realised that whenever I'm riding, it feels like the entire bike is leaning to the left. I'm not sure if it's due to my posture/technique, the park connector path being uneven/slanted, or that I assembled something wrongly when I first got the bike. Does anyone else have this issue?
(halfbiker) 1 year ago
@James, if the bike is stationary on a flat / level surface, does the bike lean? If no, the bike is most probably fine, and it's an external factor I.e. The riding style or the road surface.
(halfbiker) 1 year ago
Hi Charles, I just took a good look at it and yes, it is lending ever so slightly to the left, but I can't quite figure out why. I took some photos but I don't think the lean is visible thru the photos. But I sure can feel it when riding. When I put my handle bar straight, I start moving to the right ^^"

How much is the import tax?
10 months ago
I noticed the handle is short, makes it difficult to control the bike. Is there any way to change the handle to a longer/ wider handle?
(halfbiker) 10 months ago
Import tax / GST in SG is at 7% www.customs.gov.sg/businesses/importing-goods/import-procedures/ You pay to DHL before the goods are delivered. You wouldn’t want a wider handlebar as you don’t streer with it. In fact you can’t turn the handlebar like a traditional cycle. Instead you use your body weight to steer the back wheels…much like a skateboard.

I have done several 20km rides around MBS and East Coast on my yellow HB3. Surprisingly better workout compared to cycling. The core strength and balance that are required are significant. Totally exhausted after. Like running the same distance without the joint painp

Stirling, Nice to know you! I stay around the East and often cycle at ECP or Marina Bay. I did not notice you or other halfbikers too. It will be nice to meet. Do say "Hi" the next time you see me. I am new to halfbike, need to learn for the all. I was at Sentosa Soloso Beach last Tuesday. Look forward to see you and the rest around.

The halfbike will slide when being placed on a gentle slope. Anyone has recommendation to prevent it?

Velcro strap on brake. I leave it on the handle and only thighten it when I need it to hold brake.

I also realised that the HB3 crank length is extremely short at 135mm. Normal bike crank length is 170-175mm. You will not be able to find another crank this size except from halfbike themselves or maybe kids BMX with the same bottom bracket. If we put 170mm I wonder if will scrape the ground or make the bike unable to be pedaled due to the high step height required?

Hi All, I just bought a used halfbike and trying to learn how to ride it, had a fall and is still recovering from the fall.. I could go straight more or less, but when I try to cruise I fall, when I try to turn I fall. It's been a week of use so far, is there something I am missing?

Hi @Alfred K. If you are free to come to the east, we can have a learning session together!

Hi all! Got my Halfbike 3 back in March 2021. It's definitely my wishlist for ages, but haven't been well utilized for 7-ish months. So I hope to comeback this time. Probably need some guidance
(halfbiker) 4 months ago
Just changed my pedal to Meroca, similar to Rockbros/OneUp. Took a test drive (possibly my 5th ride, lol) & it sure is an upgrade for comfort! But being someone not so active, got tired too quick. Still lack in balance, turning is a hit & miss. Been enjoying myself crashing, haha

Happy to meet for a half bike ride, maybe gardens by the bay? Would love to exchange tips and what works. I’m new to this too. Alfred watch the video from this guy. youtu.be/aGr426NDmdw It got my up and away in couple of days.
