Our Bikes and Gear

August 6, 2013

Helmets are available in Medium and Large sizes and we supply them for our tours. If you would rather not wear a used helmet and do not have your own you can purchase a helmet.  We can arrange this at a wholesale price as we buy in bulk. HK$250 or US$32.

If you order please indicate A, B, C, D (see samples below) and then M or L(M=20-22.5" circumference and L = 22.5-24"). Send us an email with these details.  Please note that the majority of people, especially students rarely would need a Large Helmet. There is a dial that allows for up to 1" of alteration in size smaller or larger.  The photos below are for reference only - manufacturer remains "Prowell" and color schemes the same every year being  black = Model A, blue - Model B,  yellow = Model C and red = Model D. Note: Designs can vary from year to year and may be different than pictured.


Cycling Shirts!

These shirts are available to all who join our Cycling the Castles of China Tour!  Click on the shirt picture for more info.



Bicycles are included on the majority of our tours.  We keep a variety of Mountain Bike frames purchased through the years warehoused in Five places in China being Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Guizhou,Sichuan and Lhasa.  In Sabah, Malaysia and Taiwan we use bikes provided by our ground handlers - mostly Hasa and Giant Frames.  All of our frames are hard tail with front suspension.  We have ladies frames as well as some Men's 22" which are very hard to find now.  Some Chrome Moly some Aluminium with Shimano componentry and v-brake systems.  In general the bikes we provide are in the low mid range and would retail for around USD400 each.  Some choose to bring their own bike for our tour.  No problem but keep in mind we do not have insurance that covers your bike or its shipping.  Some choose to bring their own seat and clip pedals which we will happily put on our bikes.

For our tours in Tibetan regions and the nature of rough roads we ride we do not provide bikes.  For those who wish we can rent  a Rocky Mountain Instinct Full Suspension Bike for USD600. For something VERY unique ride our handmade Bamboo Bikes through Tibetan Villages!  (See Our Bamboo bike trip in Sichuan for more information)


On our Hong Kong tours we use Cannondale Bikes


In Taiwan we use Giant - that's where they are made after all!
