are bike bits a lot cheaper in Hong Kong? I know electronic stuff is, was wondering if bike stuff was as my sister will be getting my b.day present there and I was thinking of getting her to bring some bike goodies back instead of electonics

Knowing the Chinese like i do (soon to be ex is one) I wouldn't trust them to be the genuine parts but a copy.

hey kona kid
my GF and i have been in HK quite a lot over the past few years but to be honest ive never noticed a 'proper' bike shop!
there was a bmx shop i found once, and im sure there must be some somewhere - we tend to lurk around mong kok so its probably not the right area really!
knowing HK theres probably 'bike shop alley' somewhere with a 50 shops all next to each other selling crazy stuff. :D
if you did find one it probably would be a bit cheaper, but whether you'd have a decent range of stuff or not is another matter :?

Back in 2002 there were some great shops in Central. Hard to find though unless u knew where. Picked up a lot of XTR kit for not a lot of cash.

cheers all, do fancy some modern ritchey shiney things, but am worried about cheap copies and there's no way my sister would know the difference.. :wink: maybe i should play it safe and get copies of MS office and films like everyone else :lol:
