Singapore has a growing triathlon scene, which might be of interest to you as someone involved in road bike racing and the cycling industry. Here's some information on triathlon racing in Singapore:
Please note that Valley Cycles will be closed for business from Sept 1 and will reopen again Oct 4th. I'll do my best to attend to your needs both before and after these dates. Apologies for any inconvenience caused and safe riding.
In the interim please enjoy the Corima Puma photo below!!
Just to advise that Valley Cycles will be closed for business from Sept 1 to Oct 4th. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. Please advise of any works to done prior to that, or to book a slot for my return in October. Rentals can still be arranged in my absence. Pls message accordingly. Thanks.
March and April have been extremely busy here at Valley Cycles and I would like thank all customers for their support during this period.
I will be taking a short break from work from April 28 to May 4 whilst racing in Thialand but will be available for jobs as of May 5th. Thanks for your patience during this period and of course wish me and teammates the best of luck in the race.
Singapore has a relatively small cycling community and receiving and sharing positive feedback is key to the on going success of Valley Cycles. It is also hugely motivating to receive. Please see a few recent examples below:-
I had my bike stripped down and rebuilt 3 times to eradicate a creak with no luck. Sent it to Stephen at Valley Cycles for an afternoon and I am finally riding creak free #bikewhisperer.
I am delighted that you were able to solve a persistent clicking which I have had to endure for over two months. Your professionalism, dedication and determination to solve the problem are to be commended. Huge Kudos from me!
Stephen worked tirelessly on my bike until he figured out the problem. The difficulty in finding the click actually meant he had to disassemble literally my entire groupset and wheels. He methodically swapped out my parts with his own to diagnose the fault.
Even after he thought the problem was fixed he took the bike out for a spin and realized the clicking was still there. Being the true professional he got straight back to work and tinkered some more until he found out that the click originated from a loose insert in my rear dropout which was rubbing against my frame.
I went for a ride today and was so happy the clicking had gone.
On a side note, Stephen would update me periodically on his progress while working on my bike. This was a really nice touch.
I would recommend Valley Cycles to all my friends.
Thank you Stephen for the amazing diligence to servicing my bikes. — with Stephen Ames.

Asian Cycling Championships Jan 2016
We all had a superb week on Oshima Island at the Asian Champs. Bitterly cold and windy but our Singapore riders performed superbly; and thankfully for me no bike issues impacting the racing.
