I have upgraded the shifters to Shimano XT from the original Microshift as I wanted a more smoother and faster shifting. It is hard to explain but the feeling from XT is really good.. and I would suggest this as if u want to upgrade your flamingo.
If u are looking for a fast and comfy ride, the flamingo F1 is a good choice. The down side is that it doesnt fold as compactly as say a brompton. Still it is easy to put into a taxi or car. Rolling along the MRT is fine. A simple way to make it more secure is to have a velcro strap to hold the folded bike in position. Then just pick a train stop and go riding!
