I have been in Tokyo for a few years, and have my japanese driving license, but have no car.

As you know, owning a car in Tokyo is expensive and I have no need for one (other than going riding).

If anyone out here is going on day trips, or weekend trips (Fujimi, or any area nearby). Then lets try to get together and split the transport costs. I can rent a MPV if no one has anything.

So, if you live in the Tokyo area post up here!

Not sure where you are, but there is a pretty big group of us that ride on the west side....specifically in Ome. If you want to roll with us this Sunday, give me a shout and I can let you know where to come out to meet us. You said you didn't have a car? Can you come in by train?

Hatake, I live out in the in the westen part of the prefecture and ride in the Ome, Itsukaichi, and Okutama areas. We are also in the height of the downhill season at fujimi Panarama resort in southeastern Nagano prefecture. A bit ironic, but my favorite ride is in Hatakenaka, Ome-shi. Send me a PM and we can see if we can work out a ride while you are here.

The photo was taken from atop Takanosu. I didn't take the photo but was on the ride. This is a fun ride once you get to the top. We parked our cars about 3/4's of the way up and then had to walk most of the way in. It took about 2 hours of hike a bike to get there.

What type of bike did you build? I'm always riding, I will drop you a PM and give you some details. Heck I just got back from a 6 hour ride. Rode to the Mitake Tozan railway and took the cable car to Mt Mitake. We then rode the ridge line to what we refer to as Hinode peak took another ridge line which eventually took us back to the road. We then climbed back in to another trail for another decent back to the road. My friend went his way and I climbed back in for another quick trail ride. It was a perfect day with great weather.

I am building up an old Kona Cowan (05). I plan on riding more XC and trials nothing heavy or serious. I bought so Avid Exilir Rs and hope pro 2s on tweet tweet rims (中古) . I will be getting new forks next month. I think Fox and then a new frame. I am thinking about a SC chameleon. I should have it already in about 2-3 weeks and ready to ride.

Do you know any good shops in Tokyo? I have been sticking to importing and yahoo auctions.
