Anyone who's been in Beijing for more than five minutes knows that the best way to explore the city is by bicycle — and bicycle shops don't come much better than Natooke; the colours are bright, the team is friendly and, perhaps best of all, prices are competitive.
For those looking to scoop up a fixed gear, this Wudaoying bike shop is your place. Depending on your choice of China-made or imported parts, the Natooke team will help you build a custom bike from about 2,500RMB. Shoppers can also choose from pre-built fixed gear bikes that hover around 1,500RMB.
The shop has a range of bike goodies including Ribcap protective beanies, bells and baskets, as well as a small selection of Feiyue trainers (60RMB). For an even bigger selection, Natooke’s Taobao store offers a range of second-hand fixies and the good-value brand Momentum bicycle (580RMB). If you’re looking to try before you buy, bike rental is also available (100RMB per day; 500RMB deposit).
