Bike Shops in Southeast Asia

Young girl with a bicycleBike shops vary in quality and availability across Southeast Asia.

  • Thailand usually has at least one decent shop in the major cities and an excellent selection in Bangkok and Chiang Mai. It’s a good country to pick up extras like chain lube cheaper than you’d find them at home. You can even find touring shoes but larger sizes are sometimes out of stock. We have a list of Thai Bike Shops.
  • Singapore also has a glut of bicycle shops. You should be able to get almost anything. It’s not cheap but all high quality. Picking up bike boxes for the flight home is easy too.
  • Malaysia has some bike shops and in Kuala Lumpur you can buy very high quality parts but not all bike shops stock top-end brands. In smaller towns it may be hard to find decent spares or mechanics.
  • In Cambodia and Laos, bring tools and spares along. The bike shops are very basic and repairs are likely to be done with a hammer.

    Is it feasible to buy your touring bikes in Kuala Lumpur?
    We’re planning to arrive, order some bikes then return after a month in Borneo to try out some newly built bikes… But I can’t find any decent bike shops.

    I am planning on touring Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam respectively then back to Malaysia to fly back to my country.

    Do you have a good map or itinerary for biking the said countries?

    Is it okay to cross the boarder just riding a bike?
