Hey all. Long story short, I was viciously cut off by some tool in a Merc yesterday, and went ass over tea kettle onto the road. Got up with barely a scratch on me luckily, moved my bike off to the side, and the Merc sped away before I could do anything. Thankfully I'm fine, but my handlebars are bent right up. I was going to head to Nalsima to get a new set today, but then I remembered that they're closed on Wednesday and Thursday.

So... does anyone have any recommendations for good bike shops in Tokyo that will have a good selection of bars in stock? I work in Mita near Tamachi, so anywhere around the Yamanote line is fine. I finish work at 6 and was hoping to get new ones tonight, as I'll be out of the office tomorrow and won't get back into town until late.

Thanks in advance!

Daniel

Lots of cheap bars at Cycly - Shinjuku and Yoyogi. Shinjuku store is in the 'American Mall' thing adjacent to the main Shinjuku station at the Seibu Station. Across the street is a Burger King and you can get all-you-can-eat Burgers special there.

Thanks for the tips. I've been meaning to check out Cycly at some point. I ended up going to the big Y's. Surprisingly, the staff were great. They passed me off to a guy who spoke English, and he was really helpful finding a bar. He also answered all of my CAAD9 questions, and even called around to the other Y's to find out if they had the one I'm looking for. It was a good experience for sure.
