Giraffe Bicycle Shop

Update: As of 2015, Giraffe Bicycles is no longer a bicycle shop but is a bicycle-themed bar.

Giraffe Bicycles, located in the Yulin neighborhood, sells pre-built and custom made bicycles. Focusing mostly on fixed gear bicycles, the shop is adorned with an array of brightly colored bicycles frames and components, waiting for customers to select a custom build. Owned and managed by a Chengdu native woman and bicycle enthusiast, this shop is a decent alternative to the Natooke Bicycle Shop in Chengdu, although communicating with Giraffe’s shop keepers will require some Chinese language skills.


Custom build bicycles start around 2,500 yuan at Giraffe Bicycles, but the final price of your bike will depend on the components which you select. Pre-built bicycles at Giraffe go as high as 10,000 yuan but the shop carries models imported from Italy and Taiwan, among other countries.

    If you’re worried about your Chinese not being up to snuff, find out when Keren will be there. Her English is quite fluent so you needn’t worry!

    The folks at Giraffe are super nice and helpful so don’t be afraid to pay them a visit.
