Thanks for the shop suggestions in Tokyo - I have been to Ys Shinjuku (the ebike / folding bike dedicated shop - is the Ueno shop even better?).

Big question on bike shops in Tokyo (or around) - where can I get an actual decent test ride? Ys only have very few test drive models, I went to Asahi Bicycle and they let you ride it outside for about 50 metres. For me I would like a 5/10 minute ride so I can determine the fit would work and also to check how the different models and tyre thicknesses respond to uneven road / pavement surfaces.

Is there anywhere in Tokyo like that or just outside Tokyo - I heard Hasirin in Kashiwa is good - but quite a trek (1.5 hours).

'm considering going there as they have a great number of models I could test drive - though assuming I find something I like I would feel obliged to make the purchase there, which may make going back for maintenance in future a bit of a chore.

Wonder if any alternatives closer to Tokyo.
