I'm looking for information about bike brand "Nakamura". I know it is sold in Norway (intersport.no), France (nakamura.fr, intersport.fr), somewhere in Canada. However, the internet is relatively quiet about it and usual bike review sites are usually not even mentioning it. It is generally considered a cheap brand, but apparently, they have (and have had) some higher-end models as well, most expensive currently in Norway's Intersport being 3000€ road bike with a carbon frame and (near) top components. So, there should be someone somewhere who knows more about them, right?

  • Are the same models marketed in all countries? Nakamura brand used to be sold in Finland too and I had the impression it was a distributor's house brand similar to Nishiki. – ojs Aug 12 '19 at 10:35

    Might be that they didn't completely destroy their reputation in Norway with the entry level hybrids set up by shoe salespeople. – ojs Aug 12 '19 at 12:45

    @kakk11 in the interests of getting a good answer for your question, I think that's a great idea. Try adding what you would have liked to know when first asking the question, and it might help someone in the future. – Criggie Jun 9 at 14:55
