Kon's Cycle Renewal


A visit to the recently renewed Takoyakushi branch of Kon's Cycle in Kyoto earlier this month. The store has expanded into the next door property utilising the new space as a showroom for their clothing and bag range...






Some very cool displays too...


The older side of the shop is still full of bikes...


With some very nice custom builds taking center stage...







A selection of beautiful frames hang from the rafters...



The shelves are filled with high end goodies from the likes of Phil Wood...


Sugino...


Shimano and Fizik...


Kuwahara...


And some beautiful fixie levers from Tempra Cycle...


This was always a cool shop, now it's bigger and even cooler! A must visit for any cyclist in town.

Custom Tyrell @ Loro World Recumbents, Kyoto


We dropped into the wonderful Loro World Recumbents in Kyoto a few weeks back. Amongst all the lovely 'bents and folders one bike really stood out. This very colourful, custom Tyrell owned by one of the shop staff...


Retroshift controls, USE aero post...


Ultegra and Stronglight on the drive...



Seriously rare Simkins Egg brakes...


One very, very custom machine!
