After opening stores in the UK, Australia, Germany and Singapore, Tokyobike, an independent bicycle company started in the Tokyo suburb of Yakana, has now arrived in Bangkok.
The lightweight bikes put a precedence on comfort over speed. Head on down to the new store to test ride four models, starting from the Bisou (B23,800) up to the Single Speed (SS, B31,900), all previously unavailable in Thailand.
After perusing the bikes, you can kick back at the cozy cafe inside, Laliart Coffee, which serves up espresso coffee (from B60) made with beans from Thailand’s North, as well as homemade ice cream and patisseries like frangipani berry tart (B70) and apple pie with vanilla sauce (B80). They also stock a range of coffee-making products.
