    Re: Importing a Bike from Europe

    I don't think anyone knows what an R22 is. Even if they did, you can't import it.

    Re: Importing a Bike from Europe

    You can't do it. Sell it, or store it, and buy something when you get to China.

    The first question we always ask people like yourselves that think they're going to ride China... Do you have a ton of money? If...

    Yes

    Every conceivable scheme to get a bike into China has already been thought of and tried. The simple solution is money, it fixes everything.

    Re: New Benelli TRK502X with spoke wheels

    They never carried stock in the first place, never seen a 17" tube at any rural bike shop in all of China.
