“I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike…”
It’s bicycle shopping weekend for us as we find something for our 4 year old turning 5 in a couple of weeks. School starts next week and we thought it would be best that he at least get to enjoy a new bike before things get busy.
We headed to Martin 107 along Vo Thi Sau St. which is one of the more popular bike shops in town. It helps that they have a good website where you can check out the bikes first and see if there’s actually something you’d be interested in.
which costs around 3.3MVND or this one which costs 12MVND —
Not bad for 1.6MVND. The one that we wanted from a shop in the mall costs more than twice that amount and apart from the color and design, it looked the same. We paid in cash although I called in advance and was informed that they accept credit card. I also sent an SMS earlier but was told that they accept only cash. So which is which? *scratches head*
But anyway, I highly recommend Martin 107. Service is quick and painless and not at all bad on the pocket. However, if you leave far from the place like we do, I think it’s much better to just place your order online and have the bike delivered. Save money on the cab fare!
