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.
