Our spacious bike garage stores all manner bikes–including our XXL bikes (22.5″ frame) whose saddle stands almost 1.2 meter high. We employ a full time, fully equipped, on-site mechanic.
We pack up bike in boxes and ship them to Hanoi, Cambodia or wherever they are required. We conduct long distance cycling trips overland through Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. In 2008, Sinhbalo put together a cycling expedition from Bangkok to Siemreap, Phnompenh, ChauDoc and on to Saigon. Another, in March 2009, ran from Siemreap to KampongCham, Stungtreng, Siphandon, Pakse, and on to KonTum.
We provide bike gear on request, including SPD pedals and helmets. However, we recommend you bring your own helmet, shoes and pedals. If you do not, please inform us as to exactly which size helmet and type of pedals you require.
Here’s our Parktool “survival kit” which our expert mechanic takes out on the road with us. We do regular maintenance checks on the bikes.

This Serotta titanium bike comes with super small bike boxes. Although it requires more assembly time, it’s fun to work with. Its frame was severed into two parts, thus enabling the entire bike and its two wheels to fit into a small hard case.
