Welcome to the forum! :welcome:

Perhaps you can post more info of what you are looking for. We have a subforum for intros here. :)

Also, This site has no classifieds forum?
Thanks for your suggestion. We are still a small community, but we might add classifieds in the future.

Cool, thanks ill do an intro in there.
Yeah im looking for a single speed. May ride it fixie or freewheel but thats the gist of it. Need something about 55cm or 56cm. Around that. I havent found anything and i think ive covered the city. :( Too tall for Tokyo? Im not THAT tall.
I want something simple and not that expensive.

Anything up to 58 shouldn't be a problem.

Ive been to a couple of local ones around here. Ive been to almost all in the Y's chain stores and they checked their other stores for stock. I also went out to Asagaya to some huge shop i forgot the name of. Oh, also to the Cycle Recycle Depot in Ichikawa. Theyre the hardcore fixie folks. No luck. Its pretty crazy.

I see a lot of bike messengers riding single speeds every day, seems they use smaller frames. Perhaps Sora-san or Muller-san can come up with a few suggestions.

I know of a couple of smaller "otaku" bike shops in the Okachimachi area.
