I don’t care what my friends say. Most of all, I don’t care what Tan Yew Leong thinks.
I wanted a bicycle.
Not one of those featherlight plastic contraptions with 21 gears that go nowhere.
I wanted a bicycle with a left brake for quick stop, and a right one for slow stop.
Not those power pump brakes that throw you into the nearest monsoon drain.
I wanted a bicycle that does not make me stoop forever over a sausage-length handle bar.
So here it is….all I wanted for Deepavali has arrived in time for Vaisakhi.
A Made in China, Classic “male” Golden Lion 26” wheel single-speed brand new bicycle.
