Hello from Tokyo

Hi all!

Dimi, French guy living in Tokyo.

Been riding for a couple months and fell in love with it.

Currently riding a Giant Contend 2 but looking to upgrade soon!

Cheers

Salut! Welcome Dimi. Giant Contend 2 is a very good entry level road bike. Glad to hear you've been bitten buy the 'riding bug'

Dimi777,
Tokyo is a great city, but perhaps a little difficult to ride a bike in....I very much enjoyed riding in Kyoto and Sendai...Keep an eye out for traffic and those stray 3rensho's.
Welcome aboard!
Best, Ben

Thanks for the reply!

Yes, the Contend 2 really does a good job especially for the price I got it used!

Tokyo has quite a few cars and tons of traffic lights but not far from the city can be found great mountains so I can't complain
