Freek,

Along that border, the Pheasant brand is more dominant than Phoenix. Of course, the reason you see them in the market is because everyone is trading in their bicycles for scooters. Hanoi is a scooter dominated city.

I have some photos of an utterly neglected Peugeot mixte in a small display in a restaurant in Savannakhet, Laos. The owner said it was his father's. The Peugeot frame decal was replaced with a "Honda" sticker, apparently some time in the 70s. I'll have to dig it out.

Heading back in a few weeks.

A week and a half ago I visited the famous (!) Chong Chom market on the Thai-Cambodia border. Lots of old bikes there, and I definitely saw a couple of those Phoenix bikes! In black though ... Next time I'll take pics!
