            Does anyone know of any good bike shops near south Nara or Uda City? I'll be moving there in August and would like to get a bike that's not too expensive but pretty good. My wife and I will be living in Haibara for a year or two. Are bike sizes for men 6-feet tall (182 cm) very hard to come by? Would it be better to just ship over the bike I already have in Seattle?

              Holy thread resurrection Batman,

              But anyway. Do not in any circumstances ship YOUR bike over here, unless it's awesome and you plan to ride it in a tour de Japan or what not. You need to register your bike here and basically, if you park it wrong it'll be gone one day never to be found again in some city bike destroyer minefield.

              For the bikeshops, they are basically everywhere in the big cities, but I don't know anything about Haibara so can't help you there. If I remember correctly the most common bike size is 24 (can't even remember what this number is for) for men, which is OK for a 190cm dude if you hike up the seat all the way up. 182? You're small, so no problem.

                  I'm not sure about the airlines today but I know you used to be able to bring your bike with you for an extra $80 or so. It might be worth asking the airline when you are getting ready to book your ticket.

                    I shipped three bikes to Japan. Given that a crappy bike here costs the earth and a good one twice what it would do in Europe, I maintain it was a good move. Right now I'm re-spraying and making quite a pig's ear of it.

                    As for sizing - buy an extended seat tube if you need to, they're fairly obtainable throughout Tokyo. I know you were talking about Osaka but frankly I hate the provinces (in any given country).

                        I think a 6000y used bike is just fine. I mean, you can own 10 with the price of one good one that's for sure, but unless you really, really plan to ride it as a hobby or sport I don't think it's reasonable to bring your own. I have bikes in places I don't even know about and one of these days I'll probably bump in to one of my old ones.

                          Cheapo bikes

                          Sounds like there are plenty of arguments for and against. I do bike a lot and would be looking to take advantage of the nearby mountains. I feel like I could probably find something that works though and just sell it when I leave, but I'd like to find something nice. I'll just have to ask around when I get there. Thanks for the input.
