    Dear all,

    I am looking to buy a second hand bike which will be used for a trip starting in Cambodia and ending in China, which I hope to set off on in around2 months time. I am 6'3" and so need a large frame (ideally 23 inches),and of course it needs to be in great condition to make the trip and then be sold in China.
    If anyone has a bike matching this spec for sale I’d love to hear about it. I live in Siem Reap in Cambodia so if needs be I can make it to most places in Cambodia or even Bangkok and all areas between there and Siem Reap.

    Or I would be extremely grateful if anyone knows of a good quality bikeshop in Bangkok where I can buy second hand bikes and discuss my requirements with the staff? I am aware I am most likely going to have to buy the bike from a shop in Bangkok, but don’t know where to start at this point.

    And same goes for all equipment (panniers, tyres, tubes, puncture kit,etc etc etc) – I need to get hold of all that too so if anyone is selling this stuff please let me know!

    Many thanks in advance!
