What's not to love. Hot bikes, sexy accessories, design to the maxx, cute staff that make you feel like you're in some hip secret Tokyo bike shop - oh wait - it IS a hip secret bike shop, just in a hip Sydney location.
If you are yet to visit make it your next stop and check out their site - very cool. Loving the Kento Mori bike movie/photographs.
"Riding a bike in Japan is part of life. It’s about enjoying the ride, exploring the city, and the freedom that goes with that.
Tokyo Bike is a small and independent bicycle company which launched in the old Tokyo suburb of Yanaka eight years ago. Founded by bicycle enthusiast Ichiro Kanai, the team in Tokyo designs bikes for the city. Each bicycle weights between 9 and 11 kilos, is easy to carry up to your apartment and light to ride. To make the stops and starts of urban riding smoother, bikes have been designed with a smaller 650 diameter wheel.
More about slow, than fast, Tokyo Bike believes that speed is not always the aim, destination is only part of the story, and losing yourself in a city’s small back lanes and expansive parks and gardens, is one way of switching off and escaping it all.
The Tokyo Bike story is about simple bikes, that are reasonably priced, easy to ride and to carry, are pared back to the basic elements, and available in a wide range of colours.
Tokyo Bike shops can be found in Tokyo and Sydney, and very soon in London."
