Have a cuppa and build your own bike at this cafe

New cafes with sports theme target triathletes and bikers to get more mileage

Hipster cafes are all the rage these days. But two new cafes hope to attract a different breed of clientele - triathletes and bikers.

Peloton Coffee & Juice Bar at Changi Village is a cafe-cum-retail store selling triathlon gear, while The 7th Cylinder at Jalan Pisang is a motorcycle-themed cafe.

Wheeler's Yard at Balestier and Coast and Company at Siglap also sell bicycles. But Peloton goes one step further by targeting triathletes. They can browse racks of triathlon gear and merchandise, with a price range from $3 for energy shots and gels to at least $2,000 for full carbon monocoque bicycle frames.

The cafe also has a build-a-bike service, where customers can choose the frames and components of their bikes and have these custom-built by a professional bike mechanic hired by the management. The service is free of charge if the parts are bought in-store, but will cost between $120 and $150 if customers use their own components.
