I'm doing the North to South Vietnam in mid of Feb with an option for cambodia in a titanium litespeed mountian bike, I did lots of research/reading and a mountain bike would do nicely for the bad roads of vietnam and cambodia. I also have a nice Trek road bike which I will use to do the California Pacific Highway next year.
I've toured simmiler land a few years back, go with the mountain bike. contact these guys find out where they are. firstname.lastname@example.org
his name is ben, he speaks english. they've got really good stuff. its a bit of a hike to their shop in the north of the city. prices maybe a little steep.
I bought a bike off Warachaulk road (???? spelling). in china town about a 20min walk from Khosan rd.
