Wiki Guide to Getting a Bike in Japan - Advice

#1
I recently finished and published a 3 part guide on getting a bike in Japan.

https://simplemechanicalobjects.wordpress.com/2018/05/15/buying-a-used-bike-in-japan/

It covers transporting bikes from foreign countries, buying new bikes in Japan and has a large section on buying used bikes in Japan. It occured to me that there might be some useful information in it to go on the TCC Wiki, but I'm not sure how best to modify it. I was thinking I could write a concise version with just the core details and include a link to the original article for more detailed information.

Any thoughts on what you think would be the best way to integrate this information with the wiki?

I like the idea of a concise version with links to your article. The wiki is a resource for information but links to outside sources are the norm.

Just started reading your blog, I guess that is what it is called. Very interesting about that hand piano. Think I'll try to buy one.

Yeah, really sounds like you enjoy riding the bike. Not sure about Tokyo, but if you ever get down to Yamaguchi, let me know. I'll be getting my bike in June, just waiting for my June nenkin payment since I 'm going to see spending 60000 yen for a bike.
By the way, is there a way I can buy Touring Mapple maps for Kyushu and Yamaguchi at a discount?

Probably, but I’ve always just bought them as and when at book stores. I have the Kanto one and the Hokkaido one and I’m leaving Japan soon if you want them, but I don’t have Kyushu or Yamaguchi
Hi Joe
Appreciate the offer, but I don't think I'll be cycling in the Kanto or Hokkaido area. Most likely just stick down south here. But again thank you for the offer.

I think I got it from Japanese Amazon. It was quite an expensive one though, but they range in price quite a bit. Think I paid about 20000円
OK, thanks, but do you mean 2000 yen?
