Road bike rental in Taipei?

We’re only talking road bikes here, not MTBs or flat bar hybrids.

There’s a FUJI Sportif on there that can get the job done.

My friends and I are going to Taiwan in October to do whole island trip following route no. 1 around 10 days and we were thinking to just walk in to any shop to rent a bike. Would like to ask for your advice. Do you think this is a good idea? Beside these 4 shops do other shop around Taipei provide rental? Could you give other suggestion? Any road name where mostly bicycle shop available. Not looking for expensive rent but middle range is good enough. English and Chinese speaking is not a problem. We did ask Giant shop and they mentioned the bicycle rent not available during our trip.

Unfortunately, through my research, the above shops that you have read are the only shops that I know of that rent bikes (in Taipei). I do not suggest coming here without having already booked and reserved your bikes.

It’s busy season for round the island tours. The wind direction is changing and the weather isn’t unbearably hot or too cold/rainy. You don’t get a long time frame with this kind of weather, so lots of locals and visitors tend to take their trip in October.

What I can suggest is to bring your own bikes. I understand a bike bag is expensive and the airline could charge you for extra baggage, but it will be much less of a hassle and guarantees you a bike.
