How/Where to buy Peco OX bike in the US?

Peco OX are small folding bikes manufactured in Japan.
It was mentioned many times in the forum before.
Anyone knows how to buy them from the US?
Thanks!

BTW, I've googled... trust me.

Google should be your friend if it is sold here. Roger

If you couldn't assist, why bother with a sarcastic comment. Reginald,...

OP: I've searched, and all I see is small batches that have been sold in Japan. They're very hard to acquire, and you might be able to get one if you can get someone who is in Japan to buy & ship it to you. I looked for a Peco OX,...no luck.

I've tried also and even went through rakuten.com and no luck. I gave up and when I went on vacay in another country I scoped out potential bikes to buy . But that OX peco is like looking for a unicorn since that isn't the company's main business at all more like a side thing they make.

I googled for long time. The most useful info was actually from homepage of the manufacture. It's in Japanese, web-translation helped a bit but not much. Basically there are order forms (in Japanese) that one can print out. But it seems for local customers only. I think @tds101 's suggestion might be the best way to get one...

Tds101 I don't think my comment was sarcastic but yours sure was. I only meant it to be helpful. Roger

Ok, I'll take your word for it. The last time I checked, when someone tell's another person to "Google It", it implies that they didn't do their homework and search for it on their own. Besides, how many times do quite a few of us search for a particular subject/item and come up empty handed. We all need a little help sometimes - some more than others (meaning ME!!!). We're all a big folding bike loving family, so we all need to help each other as best we can. The general public just doesn't seem to get it.

@rhenning Google didn't tell me how to buy it here in the US. That's why I am trying the forum and hoping someone bought it before.

May have to Import one at retail from where they do sell them..
If there were a US dealer network the company would have it on their website.


Does not look like the Box as Air freight imported thru SFO would be very Big..

Go to Whiterabbitexpress.com. They charge a service fee, contact the dealers, buy it, and ship it to you. I test-rode the OX Pocci 9-speed while in Japan last week, and will try to write a post of my experience with it. But overall, it is a fun bike.
