No doubt about it.
The last time I was here was about 12 years ago shredding the dirt jump trails. Decided to drop a quick visit at this mosquito infested place and I was sad to see the dirt jump segment was completely destroy. Wasn't bumped out about it as there's still trails around that the MTB enthusiasts keep the quarry trails alive. As the Tampines Bike Park closing down soon due to future housing development, I hope this trail will remain as it is.
Meet Mazlan "Skope One" Ahmad's custom-painted Leader 725!
One of the slickest and cleanest 725 setup I've ever seen.
And that dropbar is pure madness!
So this is Fazboi's Colnago. You must be wondering why convert an awesome carbon road bike to a singlespeed. Well because he can, that's why! This is his Mount Faber bike & Mount Faber is no stand-up comedy. With a ratio 53/16, this bike is a wet dream for true hipsters. Sorry, I didn't mean hipsters. I meant semi-pro cyclists.
