As such, there are now more than a hundred types of bicycles, on top of more than hundred bicycle brands in Singapore to choose from depending on specific preference and type of activity. For outdoor-oriented individuals, the mountain bike provides flexibility with its changing gears and large, thick wheels and its over-all built is best for various terrains including off-road trails. Currently, the mountain bike is perhaps the most popular bike due to its functionality in various settings and is one of the most bought bicycle in the world. Even as second hand bike, the mountain bike is still an attractive purchase for many consumers. The popular mountain bicycle brands are Shimano, Giant, Venzo, Maxxis, Kona and Banshee that are the most preferred items and brands in brand new and second hand bicycle shops in Singapore and are the most sought after parts in many bicycle assembly shops in the world.

Among sports enthusiasts however, the racer is a popular type made with high frames and large but thin wheels that allow fast movement across smooth terrains and are therefore best for competitions or speed junkies.

Many cyclists even prefer custom competition racers assembled with parts from bicycle brands like Colnago Arabesque, Parlee Chebacco, Jamis Xenith, Cannondale, Felt and Lightspeed. As an alternative however, second hand bike stores in Singapore offer custom assembly for hybrid racer-mountain bikes that provides the speed of racers and the tough built of mountain bikes for various terrains.

Bicycle shops in Singapore also provide parts and custom assembly services like any typical mountain and racer bicycle shops but they also offer wider range of accessories like shirts, shoes, shorts, jackets, caps even instructional DVDs and ramp assembly services that have a market among exhibition bike fanatics. As a recreational bicycle rather than competition model, BMX bikes are also widely popular among second hand bicycle shops in Singapore.
