Ahh will they fit you?

I've been to Kyoto several times (without a bike), I just walked and used public transportation. Take note though that Kyoto is strict on bicycle parking. They will really take your bike and you will end up paying extra to the rental place if that happens.

Thanks for the replies, everyone.

To clarify, I am looking for road bikes - perhaps "racing bicycle" is a better term (although they would not be used for racing)? - to ride in the mountains around Kyoto.
They will not be used for sightseeing.

I've a couple of friends coming over from England next month who ride a lot in the UK and would like to ride in the mountains around Kyoto but don't want to bring their own bicycles.

RGRK ... the Rapha Gentlemens Race Kyoto route ... I've been meaning to do it myself (for the longest time) but the stars have not aligned yet.
