    Little bustling bike shop on Julu Lu with shiny customized bikes and bike accessories. Store owner Danny and his dad are there every day, willing to show you around or offer up a quick bike repair. Customized bikes start at 1,680rmb (sizes from 44-61cm) and repairs are reasonably priced (around 30rmb depends on what you’re fixing).

    Brompton is a brand of these super nifty British bikes that fold up into something about the size of, say, five Homeslice pizza boxes. Their whole bit is how compact, convenient and healthy they are for city commuters. This shop exclusively stocks Bromptons for 10-20k, as well as accessories. Nice perk: repairs are free China-wide (they have another shop in Beijing). Downside is that you can't take them on the Shanghai metro except in a carry bag.

    Giant has a vast, sprawling network of franchises in Shanghai, and they vary wildly in size and quality of service, but they all stock Giant bikes. This one, near Zhongshan Park, is the best one we know about. They stock bikes in all shapes, sizes and configurations, including folders, e-bikes and kid bikes. They mostly sell nice road bikes in the 10k-60k range, and the more expensive ones are seriously high spec. More entry-level models go for between 4-7k. They'll repair any bike, too. Replacing your brakes will cost 50-100rmb. They organize a road bike competition every year, but you have to have a Giant bike to get involved.

    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.

    • Specialized Bikes (Changning Lu) Shanghai

    1435 Changning Lu, near Qiuyi Lu

    长宁路1475号, 近遒义路

    5206 1767
    Top-range road bike outlet that exclusively stocks their own brand of ultra-modern, ultra-expensive rides. The cheapest bikes start around 5k, with the most expensive ones that you could probably lift with your pinky breaking 90k+. A standard puncture repair will set you back 50rmb, but all other repairs massively depend on what model you have. They organize weekly rides on a WeChat group but you have to have bought a Specialized bike from their shop. They've also got stores over on Biyun Lu and Jianguo Lu.

    L102, 88 Tongren Lu, near Nanjing Xi Lu

    铜仁路88号L102

    19802112374
    Electra, bicycle company to the stars, specializes in bikes that look really good and ride really smooth. The bikes are beautiful, like worthy of being hung above Giorgio Armani's bed beautiful. As of 2018, this is the only store in China that carries some of their very trendy two-wheelers: Electra, Pashley, and Shulz bikes. The bikes are engineered to sit you in an upright position and have a snazzy internal gear system (the gear switches in this little magic box at the hub of the rear tire so the chain never moves). You get what you pay for; prices range from 4,900rmb to a whopping 25,900rmb.
