Here it is, our definitive list of the best bicycle shops in Singapore for every category of bike and every type of cyclist. People often ask "what is the best bicycle?" or "which bike shop is best?". Honestly, the answer to this question is it depends.
While it may sound like a cop-out answer this really is true. The best bicycle or bike shop would really differ based on a person's intended use and needs.

While some of our competitors might find it strange that we are creating a list of other bike shops, our belief is that as long as more people are cycling, everybody wins!
Our guide of Best Bike Shops in Singapore By Type of Bicycle
Without further ado, here is our list of best bike shops in Singapore in 2023:
1. Unspokin - Best for Commuters, City Bikes, Bicycle Repairs & Maintenance
Let's address the elephant in the room and get this out of the way. We couldn't make a list without including ourselves in it because we firmly believe that we are one of the best at what we do.
Our specialisation is our generalisation. Unspokin will help make your journey from point A to B on a bicycle easier and smoother than ever before. We also sell value for money quality second-hand bikes, that have been upcycled and restored to their former glory. This includes, road bikes, folding bikes, city bikes and more!
In fact, Unspokin has even designed and manufactured a belt-driven city bicycle called the Frigate for this very purpose! This bicycle even comes in a straight top tube version for those that prefer this aesthetic.
The bicycles here offer premium quality at a reasonable price tag. While the bikes here won't be the cheapest that you can find on the market, they'll certain punch way above their price.
Overall, whether you have a blown tube, need some modifications done or want to build a custom bike up from scratch, Unspokin has got you covered. Checkout their bike repairs and services page and book and appointment if you have an issue. They take in all types of bikes from Pinarellos to Pikes even if these bikes were not purchased from them.

Who we recommend Unspokin for: Everyday commuters, city-bike lovers and folks who need general repairs and maintenance without breaking the bank.
Price Range: $$ to $$$
2. Brompton Junction Singapore - Best for Folding Bikes
This shop doesn't need any introduction, especially after the folding bike boom during the Covid Era. Out of all the folding bikes there is no competitor by and far.
There is a unique quality in the Brompton in terms of how it folds and rides. If you're a fan of the folding bike, it may be well worth the extra cash to purchase one of these bad boys.
Shopping at Brompton Junction in Singapore is always a treat because they are conveniently located in Funan Mall, and the friendly staff will be there during their opening hours to guide you along even if you know nothing about bicycles or folding bikes.
While we have tried some other tri-fold bikes in the market, our humble opinion is to get a brompton unless you can't afford one!
Personally, I would ride a 700c bike over a folding bike any day because of the comfort and effeciency that it provides over bikes with smaller wheels. That said, if i had to pick a folding bike to ride, the Brompton would no doubt be my weapon of choice.
The junction also offers a full suite of accessories such as bags, baskets, pedals and more to customise your bike and optimise it for your daily commutes or weekend rides!
Who the Brompton Junction is for: Folks who would like folding bikes.
Price Range: $$$ - $$$$$
This bike shop is hardly the new kid on the block. If you have a decent budget & money isn't the primary concern for you, this would be your go-to store. This bike shop truly is wonderful with an assortment of bike parts that brings back the feeling of being a kid in a candy store.
It truly is a bike otaku's dream. With high-end frames from well-known brands such as Surly and Engine 11, it's hard to not find what you would like for a single-speed or fixed-gear build at this shop.
Who Cycle Project Store is for: Fixed gear and single speed bike enthusiasts who would love to customise their bikes with a high degree of personalisation.
Price range: $$$ to $$$$
4. Decathlon - Best Value Bikes for Those on a Budget
If you don't mind riding a bike that is the same as the guy next door, decathlon might be the best place for you! While their budget range typically doesnt offer you the best quality or riding experience out there, it is good enough for most folks.
For example, their Tilt 100 folding bike is a hard bargain to beat. Where else can you find a fully functioning and decent folding bike for just $219?
Granted a folding bike from a shop like Brompton would ride a lot better, but bear in mind that you would be paying about 10% the price in comparison. So what we are trying to say is don't write off Decathlon, because their bikes will be right for many folks in the market.
Who Decathlon is for: People on a tight budget and don't mind using a bike that many others are using.
Price range: $ - $$
