Alex Singer Constructeur At Grand Bois

Absolutely stunning vintage Alex Singer Constructeur shot at the wonderful Cycles Grand Bois in Kyoto last month...


The details are just beautiful, these photos do not do justice to how gorgeous this bike is...


That chrome, that blue pin striping...



The drillium hubs...




The Stronglight cranks...


All the way down to the original Cyclo derailleur...

Vintage Cycling Magazines at Giracha

Whilst at Giracha last month with AdamSayaka was kind enough to show us a couple of early 80's "New Cycling" magazines...



Each one a treasure trove of Japanese cycling history and vintage styles with features on legends like Nagasawa-san...



Samson...


And 3Rensho...


The advertisements are beautiful documents of what was a boom time for Japanese cycling...




Can't quite understand why the tennis racket holder didn't catch on though...


Thanks as always to Sayaka, Rene and the whole Giracha family.
