tho no so much if you wanna sell something to them - dirt cheep offers only
Yep agree with this, recently sold some low km wheels with GP4000's for the princely some of 2000.
Also impossible to sell a bike unless originally bought in Nippon.

@Gok I just went over to have a look. Wow! So many second hand parts. Big collection of bikes and some decent sizes (numerous 54s and a selection of 56s). I also thought the pricing wasn’t too bad either for retail. I looked at the website and it seems they push a lot of stock through Yahoo! Auctions. Personally, It’s nice to go and look at all that kind of stuff in a real shop🙂

I’m looking to convert my quill stem and change my old fork at the moment and they had most of what I needed to do that. Tons of stems and three or four different forks. No adapter but they guy said they do get them in but that’s easy enough to find online:

Thanks again, @Gok!
It's my go to shop for bike porn. Something about a variety of old, used bike parts, accessories (except bibs) is very attractive... There's another called 'Buychari' but I haven't tried that.
For bike shops dealing in new bikes, I like SEO Cycles (& Tokyu Hands Shinjuku, Shibuya).... they usually run upto 40% off on last year models. Having said that, I have only, ever bought one road bike (@ 40% off).

@Gok I stumbled across a Buy Chari in Kawagoe today. Very similar to Cycly. Lots of parts and bikes. They seem to do a bit more bike maintenance from what I could tell so I might bring my bike there next time I need something done. They had a few brands that I hadn't seen in person yet (a Ridley and a Wilier) so that was kind of cool. The best bike they had was a 2016 Litespeed T3 kitted out with Ultegra and deep aero wheels for about 55 man. It looked the absolute bomb!

Tokyu Hands Shibuya's bike shop is being downsized. They will move from the spacious lower ground floor area to a cozy area on the first floor and deal almost exclusively with Raleigh and Brompton bikes (I'm sure the repairs and upgrades I pay for the latter pays the rent for the entire site). They are currently selling lots of items at 20-40% off. The guys at that bike store have been tremendous in looking after my bike over the years and I told them yesterday how @Gok had mentioned them here and they were rapt!
