Pete's Chari & Soma

So last month we said goodbye to a friend, Nara biking legend and all round good guy big Pete and his lovely lady returned home to America after three years in Tawaramoto, Nara. He very kindly left his prized Bubba with us which meant during his final few weeks he was riding this rather fine example of the ubiquitous Japanese mama-chari...


That #BasketLyfe thing was happening here well before the Californian yuppies and dentists made it trendy and expensive...



No need for #ShutUpLegs style inspirational top tube quotes, just a few sensible rules to keep oneself alive...


Fully enclosed single speed chain guards are the new 1x11...


Security is important too...


A fine steed, a work horse that will still be rolling the streets of southern Nara long after we've all moved onto the next tyre size gravel bike coffee outsiding trend...


He may be gone but he's still riding. And in style too on his new SomaFab 26er looking pretty pretty good in these two shots...


Bonus cool points for the Bob Mould star...


There will be regular updates posted here soon from the man himself and his bike adventures in Minneapolis.
