    Hey man, I'm visting Taiwan/Tapei soon. Is Dirty Bikes in or near Taipei and would they rent me a ride and show me the locals trails you reckon?

    Dirty Bikes is in the heart of Taipei, but they don't rent bikes. Call or email the guys at the Specialized store in Neihu, they will rent you just about anything. But you'll need someone to show you the trails as there isn't much in terms of maps or signs unless you can read Chinese characters, and the best trails aren't marked at all.
