Road bike?

Hello Fellow KOTRers

I've been climbing around Korea for a few years now and have met a bunch of you, but not to many folks that are into ROAD biking. Whenever I'm back in the states, I start the triathalon scene again and road racing, but the last venture home cost me my bike. Fedex destroyed it while shipping it home from a race. So, I've saved a few won and am interested in buying a bike here in the land of morning calm...any suggestions. I need a 58cm or 60 cm frame, since I'm 6'3..but no one seems to have bikes for big guys here....help? ideas?

Bryan

I know a few hardy cyclists. A good friend of mine (no longer in Korea) is a passionate mountain biker, and he knows his stuff. I'll drop him a line to see what kind of information is available for you in Korea.

In the meantime, if you're on Facebook, there's a group that was started by my same friend. Here's a link:

I'm currently thinking of getting a new bike, as well. I'm tentatively planning to bike from Seoul to Busan this autumn, as long as things aren't too busy.

THanks

Appreciate the help hypoxic!

Let me know if you need any other info, I'll check out the link on Facebook today. As for the ride, I'm sure I'll get a bike soon, so keep me in mind for the ride, I'd definitly be interested in cruising the expressway bus lanes to Busan, maybe we should ride tandem though, so we're not fined

Thanks again for the help.

Bryan

Yeah, I found this site, but they don't have anything in my size...Maybe I'll call today and see if they can order my size.

Thanks Will,
Bryan

Not sure if you got a bike here yet, but I bought my road bike in Daejeon at Geocycles (www.geocycles.co.kr). It's a good little shop but can be difficult to find.

There is a bike shop in Seoul which i've been to get bits and bobs from - it has some sweet road bikes! They also custom build bikes which may be handy if you can't find anything your size. It is just next to hapjeong station and is called Bikenara (www.bikenara.co.kr)

Good luck!
