Bike Shop Near Yazd, Iran

Bit of info for anyone cycle tourers in need of any spares and service near Yadz, (you’ll be going that way… everyone does!).

While spending time in the city we met up with Yaghob, a champion mountain bike, (and road) rider in Iran… and a thoroughly nice guy to boot! It was great, to spend the afternoon chatting bike with someone who really loves cycling and also understands touring as well; Yaghob showed us lots of pictures of all the cycle tourists he’s befriended over the years.

He also owns a bike shop about 20km out of Yazd in a town called Taft, (if you’re heading from Yazd to Shiraz, or the other way round, you will pass it); now most Iranian bike shops tend to be a bit naff – but Yaghob, being a pro and all, has some decent high spec components in stock, (you’ll be most interest in the Shimano XT group set stuff I’ll wager) including Wilier and Scott carbon bikes. When I spoke to him he also said that getting hold of things like Schwalbe Marathon tires or any other bits and bobs for touring would be no problem if you gave him an email or call in advance, (he speaks good English by the way). His details are:

Email: Yaghob_bik@yahoo.com

PHONE: 09139516835

So there you have it. You don’t come across many good bike shops in countries like Iran, so when you do they are worth talking about.
