Taiwanese Bicycle Shops

Spent my first week living in Taiwan, Southern Taiwan and Fengshan City to be exact. There are modern bicycle shops here but, the ones pictured are more traditional Taiwanese. I stopped by one (pictured left) and used sign-language to get air in the back tyre of my borrowed shopper bike. Great thing is that the shop sprawls out onto the road and is easy to see. A bicycle can be purchased very cheap, if you want something for A to B [and a kickstand] and I noticed some cheap fixies too (not sure about build quality). Waiting for the arrival of our container and my bicycles which have hopefully survived the journey – then the adventures can really begin!

    I love sea containers. They always contain the stuff you want most.

    Taiwan In Cycles recently did a post about bike shops in Taiwan.
