I am travelling to Japan (arriving Osaka) mid-May to early-June and inspired by this guy I want to do a cycling tour.
There are a lot of things to consider, but obviously the first problem is the bicycle itself.
I'm looking at my options for buying a bicycle in Osaka to avoid the hassle of flying with a bike, but it just occurred to me that I might run into some issues - I'm 188cm tall (6ft2) so ideally I want a XL frame.
How likely am I to find a bicycle shop that will stock something suitable in Osaka? What are the names of some stores I could check out? Another important factor is price, so what price range would I be looking at? I'd definitely look at second hand bikes as well.
