According to The Straits Times, foldable bikes have been selling off the shelves like hot cakes in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, as more Singaporeans have been turning to cycling to keep fit.
In fact, sales of folding bikes at Decathlon Singapore have rocketed by 67 per cent since the pandemic hit Singapore early last year.
The reason for the surge in demand: a foldable bicycle in Singapore can be folded into half its size and stored in compact apartments in land-scarce Singapore.

The Birdy New Classic (8 speeds) pays homage to the original Birdy Classic Gen 1, constructed with the same retro tubular frame design as in 1992.
It makes an awesome introduction to the magical world of Birdy bikes for first-timers.
Only a folding bike with true complete suspension like the Birdy can keep contact with the ground on unlevelled roads – and still keep you in full control.
The active rear swing arm with a favourable pivot point position and an optimised anti-dive front wheel suspension constitute the core of the Control Technology.
These ensure better road holding and safety at elevated speeds and in problematic situations.
In contrast to other foldable bike brands, you can feel the comfort and strength of the bike.
Hard knocks against cobbles, kerbs and bumpy roads are minimised.
