Minister for National Development Khaw Boon Wan has no quarrel with National Parks Board’s (NParks) choice of the $2,200 Brompton bike for its staff, but it may have got a better price if there had been more participation in the bike deal.
He said this in a blog post yesterday. He also said that the Brompton bicycle was the right equipment.
Some Singaporeans, including netizens, have questioned if the bicycles were too expensive. NParks bought 26 of them.
