Hi everyone. I recently moved from London to Tokyo. Unfortunately I've managed to beat my bike here (its stuck on a ship somewhere, hopefully not hijacked). Got into cycling when I signed up for a triathlon a year ago.

As the people on the forum seem really helpful, I was wondering if anyone had any advice for where and what bike I should buy. I'm looking for a hybrid for commuting (hopefully with the ability to fit a rear pannier). Not fussy about new or second hand. Also not sure how much I need to spend for a decent hybrid?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks

Admitting you’re a triathlete is one thing, asking for advice on a hybrid is taking it a little too far mate!


LOL – just joshin with ya….. Welcome to the forums. To be honest it all depends on your size, but really a lot of people have ordered from wiggle and had it shipped to Japan.

Thanks for the welcome. I'm 175cm and ride a 52-54 road bike, so I'm hoping that it shouldn't be too hard to find that size in Tokyo? Otherwise I'll try Wiggle.
