My new bike bought last month for $450(before 5% discount) at Rodalink. Polygon bikes are incredible value for money as has been mentioned in recommendations among cyclists in forums.
I used to own a Trek 2200 road bike a couple of years back which i used for commuting to work. It was stolen. Damn heart pain. Bike thefts have been on the rise over the years & they have gotten more audacious by climbing into porch to steal. Once bike is stolen is very very hard to recover cause the police won't waste their time recovering bikes.
So far i've done the eastern park connector loop, northern loop & exploring sentosa(darn small island which has gotten more artificial) Total distance so far is in low 300km+
Why did i choose this bike? Well i'm more of an avid recreational rider. I mostly commute for errands & exploring/sightseeing & then pitstopping at hawker centres for value for $ nice hawker food. F100 suits my budget for a roadie & with a flat bar which i'm more accustomed to. The dropbar series of road bikes start at $650.
Slim tires are a breeze riding on roads & park connectors compared to the amount of energy expended pedaling my old 'chapalang' bike which i still use at times to certain commuting locations due to fear of new bike stolen.
