A friend of mine who owns a SCOTT Scale 900 mountain bike, which he bought in the U.K. and has recently brought to Thailand, was looking to find a SCOTT dealer in Bangkok. I told him that I could do him one better by delivering him and his bike to the flagship store of Thailand’s SCOTT distributor.
Beyond having a full range of SCOTT bikes, the KH Cycle Thailand store also serves as the showroom for such illustrious brands like Lightweight, Continental, SIDI, Campagnolo, and Assos. It seems like there isn’t any brand of bike stuff that can’t be found in Thailand now – as long as you know where to look. Things were not the same back in 2010 when we started the BicycleThailand.com website.
The new store isn’t the easiest place to find using the address alone, as the 4-lane road where it is located has only recently been completed and not all taxis/maps are aware of it just yet. Thank goodness that we collected the GPS location during our visit in order to help other cyclists find the shop in the future.
KH Cycle Thailand store has a full bike service station, can handle SCOTT bicycles and ASSOS clothing warranty claims, and features a patented RADLABOR bike-fitting system that uses laser points to enable sales staff to quickly assess proper frame size on all SCOTT bike models to fit an individual customer.
The shop is worth a visit, even if you’re not a SCOTT bike owner. I caught myself drooling over the wide selections of SIDI shoes (and replacement parts!) and Continental tires (they do make some of the best tires in the biz).
KH Cycle Thailand shop manager, Khun June, speaks great English, and in addition to his management responsibilities he personally updates the shop’s website and, at the time of this writing, is making plans to begin weekly cycling trips from the shop location for all interested riders.
If you’re looking for a SCOTT brand bike, a new set of Lightweight wheels with Continental tires, or a flash pair of SIDI shoes topped off by some fabulous Assoss cycling kit, then a visit to KH Cyclce Thailand is certainly in order.
