The CAAD Optimo's are ideal for most Kyoto cyclists and bike rentals. Newer Cannondale models that have Tiagra spec are zippy, responsive and happy to cover long distances.
This bike can get you around the city sightseeing and help you explore the beautiful nature in the mountains, valleys and along the rivers. If you're looking for a smaller sized, high-quality road bike to rent in Kyoto, you'll no doubt be very happy on this 48cm Optima.
The rental comes with a helmet, saddle bag, spare tube, lock, lights, tire levels and your choice of pedals. The 48cm frame can be ridden from 155cm to 170cm riders but the ideal height is probably 163cm to 169cm cyclists.
We have two Cannondale Optimo bikes in the Kyoto shop so try to book in advance to make sure we have one available for your trip. This is the smaller 48cm bike but we also have a 54cm Optimo for taller riders.
