Buying a bike in China

While there are plenty of reputable dealers (Giant, Merida, Trek and Specialized all have outlets in my city) in China, if you want anything a little different you are almost forced into buying a bike in the States and then re-importing back here, incurring shipping charges and a massive inconvenience factor and very often a return airfare which is ludicrous considering that many of the world's bikes are built in mainland China.

Does anybody have any information on direct from China vendors which might allow me to open up my world of bike choice? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I am in China myself, and I know exactly what you are saying. I bought a Trek 7.5 fx and wasn't able to find any good accessories for it here. Had to wait until I went back to the states to buy and bring back here. Giants and other brands of bikes, I couldn't find anything big enough to fit me except at the Trek dealer. At the Giant store, they wouldn't order me a bigger framed bike. They told me I had to wait 3 months or longer for them to place the order. With the Chinese people, most ride your typical Chinese style of bike(terrible....just terrible bikes)
