Thinking of buying a bicycle in Pattaya?
There are 3 bicycle stores that I know of.
They are located on Thepprasit Road.
One is at the corner of Soi 8 and the other two are on Thepprasit Road between Soi 8 and Soi 10.
I have looked in all the major department stores like
• Tesco Lotus
• Big "C"
The quality of those bicycles is poor and not what I am looking for.
You can find bikes under 6000 Baht but you get what you pay for.
Of the 3 Bicycle stores / shops on Thepprasit Road I like "LA Bicycle" Sale and Service shop.
Khun Pratheep Kunsukhon is a very knowledgeable person and can get you any parts you need.
He's got quality bikes in his shop.
So how do you go about purchasing a bicycle in Pattaya?
I bought a used / 2nd hand Bergamont Seeker Mountain bike from him for 8000 Baht and I am very happy with my purchase.
This bike costs about 33000 Baht new in Europe. He completely re furbished it with quality parts.
If you need any spare parts or anything else you need for your bicycle, Pratheep can order it for you from Bangkok.
Watch for crazy traffic - you'll have scooters fly by you and baht buses try to cut you off. Even if you decide to ride the quieter roads I recommend riding facing the traffic.
Have water with you - Thailand is incredibly hot and you will have to watch for your hydration. It's also humid so you won't be able to cool off easily.
In any case - have fun riding!
