Vigore Store Kyoto

Today we took a trip out to Kyoto to pay a visit to the wonderful Vigore store in Sakyo-ku Iwakura. The store sell their own unique brand of road, MTB and city bikes, all made to order in Japan. Traditional and stylish, the Vigore range covers all bases from entry level hybrid bikes to high end carbon/steel road frames.
