- Bike Details -
We love mamachari! That’s Osaka-dialect for “mama’s bike”, the style of bike we rent. They’re simple, useful, comfortable and fun. Our 26-inch frame bikes come with a front light, rear and pedal reflectors for safety at night, plus a basket for your stuff. They have a super-reliable single-gear set up, comfortable, adjustable-height seats and upright-style handlebars for easy cruising. Rent a bike in Osaka for an old-school cool smooth cruise. :)
