Buy a bike in Taiwan

Hi there,

I'm planning on travelling South-East Asia for 5 months strating in October.

I read that most of the bikes in the world are manufactured in Taiwan. Before starting my trip in Phuket (I tried finding some local there shops but it's not easy), I would like to buy one of those travel bikes in Taiwan : Trek 520, Surly LHT, Kona Sutra or VSF Manufaktur TX400.

Do you know any local bikeshop in Taipei who could sell one of those bikes, and maybe custom it a little (racks, butterfly handlebars, Ortlieb bags) ? (And, ideally, who can speak a bit of english)

Thanks for your kind answers !

Yohan

1. Re: Buy a bike in Taiwan

My family is visiting Taiwan this summer and we are also planning to get some bikes. A local cyclist recommends this bike store in Taipei, Alan's Mountain Bike (http://www.alansmountainbike.com.tw/index.htm).

Clearly, they sell mountain bikes. I don't know if they sell any other types. We are planning to check it out when we are there. We will let you know what we find after our trip in July. Cheers!
