Rideal’s most popular bikes are pricy custom-jobs, but they also stock Tokyobike, an independent Japanese brand now based in downtown LA. These models cost between 4-5k at Rideal, while custom bikes can cost up to 15k. Most repair jobs are available here – a standard chain repair starts at around 50rmb and replacing the brake system can cost 100rmb+. They organize rides around the city and its outskirts for shop regulars, and every year or so they take a trip out of town to places like Moganshan.
