Any bike shops in Tokyo that stock touring bikes?

Asked by Martyn Bissett · 3 years ago

I'm looking to buy a bike for touring which I can load up with a tent, sleeping bag, clothing etc. Are there any shops in Tokyo that stock touring bikes?

I ride road bikes a lot and frequent a number of different stores for parts and ideas. The best serious bike shop chain in Japan is Y's Road ("wise road"). A quick search for a Trek 520 at their website yielded this page, which is a store in Osaka. Generally I've found that if one Y's Road store has a bike model in stock that you want, they can get it to a store closer to you, for you to look at, in a couple of days. But then the pressure is on to buy it...! 

Y's Road has a good store in Shibuya and an even better one in Futako Tamagawa.

Maybe this will help? There is a chain of bicycle shops called "Le cyc" all over Tokyo http://www.cyclespot.net/
