Istanbul, Turkey - Looking for some cycling connections

Yes, Istanbul is in Europe!

I am looking for cycling connections in Istanbul and nearby. I need to find a place to store my touring bike this winter. I am currently cycling from Hungary to Turkey. During September, I will be crossing Romania and Bulgaria to Istanbul. I'm looking to rent a storage locker someplace, or I would be happy to rent a space in someone's garage or attic.

Hope it's not too late.

I'd contact Delta Bisiklet ( http://www.deltabisiklet.com/?_Args=__SysD,18,OdesisMc )
They have 5 shops in Istanbul, 3 in Ankara and 1 in Izmir. So you can possibly leave your bike in Istanbul and collect it in another city as well.

Mailing first might be good idea, as I don't know how fluent English speakers they are. There might be language/fluence related problems at phone. Their Istanbul email is delta@deltabisiklet.com

If it turns out no avail then post back here and I'll recommend you alternative shops. But all the alternatives (that I know of) have one or two shops in Istanbul. Try Delta first.
