If anyone from Taipei, please provide website links of LBS's in the area. I'll be visiting Taipei in few weeks and hope to pick up some local goodies (e.g. Giant frame, wheels, complete bike).
Thanks!

Maybe you can firstly check the distributor/dealers at Taipei of Giant, Specialized, Trek, Scott etc. And then go to the shops to ask for more information.

Yes, but this page www.giantcyclingworld.com/store.php doesn't translate to English using Bing translator nor Google translator.

What do you need to know from the page? Giant stores in Taipei vary quite a bit - from those selling higher end models to those selling only commuters. Which area will you be staying in Taipei?

When I was last in Taiwan, I googled some bike shops and those then use Facebook to see if they have a web presence there. The higher their web presence, the more likely they they will appeal to weightweenies

Ended up visiting a nice shop which stocks Specialized, Cervelo, Orbea, and quite a lot of candies that even comes with a dedicated women's corner. But I can't tell you where that is already ha.

From the website, there are 75 shops in Taipei and New Taipei cities. I believe only part of them sell high-end bikes and parts.
There is one flagship shop of Liv, the female serial.
Address: No. 345 & 347, Dunhua N Rd, Songshan District, Taipei City, Taiwan 105

And you can tick the "Right Ride system" square (left side, scroll down), meaning a fitting system. I assume only big shops have this equipment.

I will be in Taipei for only 1 day hence I asked for list of LBS's so I can plan my day accordingly before I land there. Trains are everywhere, no problem getting around to other parts of town.

Replying back with no LBS name or address is useless information for me.
