Looking for some people with experiences with mtb in Japan. I figured I would ship a cheap Hardrock over there, as I visit every summer for a couple of weeks. I think they'll allow me to carry it onto the train as I want to hit up the surrounding cities around my town; my hometown is 1 hr north of Kushiro.
I ran a search and saw some guys in the Sapporo area...which is on the either side of the island. I figured it'd be cheaper to buy a bike here in the states, and have it shipped over there. I've got a few months (I go in July/Aug) to plan this out.
There definitely isn't a bike shop where I live. Probably in Kushiro, but I figure it'd cost an arm and a leg for a decent one.
Everyone likes pictures, so I'll show you what I'll be trying to tame:
Jo-dan jo-dan. Not really trying to take on the 2 spiders. But in the first picture, you can see the ski resort in the distance, 2nd picture trails supposively exist around the volcanic pit.
