More Singaporeans are taking on cycling as a leisure activity during the weekends. Many are also bringing their bikes overseas for cycling in urban cities. More commuters are taking the train and bus with their bikes. So how does the CarryMe compact foldable bike help in these activities?
We give you 10 simple reasons why this CarryMe compact foldable bike is an ideal folding bike for leisure cycling, for the first and last-mile commute and for bike travelling.
#1 Save on transport fares
While transport in Singapore is fairly accessible, the costs of commuting daily can be quite expensive in this city.
A feeder bus ride is roughly $1.50 per trip and taking it to and from work or school will cost you $3 a day. That is more than a $1000 spent on transportation per year!
Travelling by a folding bicycle in Singapore for your first and last-mile commute is definitely more wallet-friendly. A well-made bicycle like the Pacific CarryMe can last for a very long time if maintained well. Plus you get to enjoy fresh air and a healthy heartbeat while cycling regularly!
The CarryMe compact foldable bike is MRT friendly and bus-friendly and is allowed in public transport, all day, every day. It has a permitted size limit allowed by the Land Transport Authority.

After you are done with your break, you can roll it around the mall while you shop or even bring it to the movies with you. The folded bike can be parked at the back of the cinema while you enjoy your film.
#4 Light enough to carry it up and down the stairs
There are times when cycling is not an option and you are forced to climb a flight of stairs to a walkup apartment or to the second floor without a lift.
The usual folding bikes weigh at least 12kg. Can you imagine lugging such a heavy bike up the stairs?
What makes the CarryMe stand out from all the other foldable bikes is its weight. At only 8.4kg, the CarryMe is the lightest folding bicycle in the world and is a breeze to carry up the stairs, or anywhere else for that matter!

With a compact folded size of 32cm (H) x 25cm (W) x 93cm (L), the CarryMe will have no problems fitting into the boot of your car. You will even have extra space left in your car boot to store other items.

The CarryMe compact foldable bike is designed with a low stepover so that young kids age 8 years and above and the elderly with stiff joints can step over the low bottom tube to mount on the bike seat, making it easy for anyone to mount on the CarryMe because of its low step over.
The low stepover also means that when you want to dismount from the CarryMe folding bike, you can lean forward, step down on your feet and slowly come to a halt without having to jump out of the bike if you have to come to a sudden halt. Having a low step over also means that people who are short or the elderly with stiff leg joints or arthritis can also enjoy riding a compact foldable bike without having to struggle with a gait of a full-sized bicycle.
