    Hong Kong bike shops?

    I have a stopover in Hong Kong on my way home during Thanksgiving. Where are some bike shops that sell bicycle parts and accessories? If possibly name the closest MRT station and I will find it.
    Thanks.

    I spent a long weekend in HK this last weekend. We popped over to Lamma for lunch. One of the walkways took us by this scrawny lttle dude polishing up his Intense. His bike and gear was totally blinged out but his appearance and house were rough to say the least. good riding there I hear

    Are the prices of parts much different in HK in compareson to US? How do you pass through metal detectors on the aeroplane with all this hard stuff? Usually I find that HK is quite expensive place for shopping. I know some places in Hong Kong where one can get electronic cigarettes for like $15, which cost $110 back home. Price difference is really amazing. Check green smoke reviews here, if you doubt it.

    I think they are more expensive when i visited some of the shops.

    Also, only a handful of shops have good selections. Flying Ball is one of the better ones.

    The others I went to are really hole in the walls and the parts there can easily be picked up at Performance bike for a cheaper price, not to add the selection is better.

    Save your money.

    There was a thread a while ago about if Giant and Diamondback bikes are cheaper in Asia. The conclusion was a no. However, you will find some cheap knockoffs if that is your thing.

    We call those "A" merchandise or "Wet" merchandise in Hong kong words.

    On HK island, there's Bicycle World at 15 Wood Road, just off Wan Chai Road near Morrison Hill swimming baths. A five-minute walk from Wan Chai MTR. (No website. They open around 11 a.m. If you need mechanical help, ask for Kwong - he's good)

    Kowloon side, nothing I'm aware of closer in than the venerable Flying Ball at 478 Castle Peak Road Take the MTR to Cheung Sha Wan...
