I`m currently travelling round Japan (and then South Korea) and am looking to buy a bike to do some touring (renting a decent one has proved more difficult than I imagined).
Flexible on make and model (would also be up for equipment). I`m 178 cm (5`9) so frame size large.
My itinerary is to head to Hokkaido (Sapporo) at the end of the month, then Shikoku (around wc 7th), then Kyushu (around 14th) - so any where around those locations.
Failing anything for sale, if anyone knows of good rental places (think im set for Hokkaido) for Shikoku and Kyushu let me know.
