For quite some time I had heard murmurings about ‘The Collector’, an intriguing Singapore character with a magnificent bicycle collection to match. The first time I saw Ah Joo I was out riding with friends; as we rolled up to a small group of cyclists, he immediately stood out, riding a traditional steel frame and carrying a small bag over his shoulder. We greeted the group and carried on but mentions of ‘The Collector’ peppered the conversation thereafter.

This would be a fascinating film if it was some old boy in the Midlands, but in Singapore?!! Amazing and wonderful that such a collection of classic European bikes can exist in the most far flung corners of the World. Great film.

"No snow down here Corinne, in fact it was rather balmy this morning which is right and proper for an area of unnecessarily high council tax."
