Friends of FOE Sayonara Century (FOE048)

Earlier this month our good friend and maker of some great Japanese cycling videos, writer of fantastic articles and all round decent bloke, Bradley FoE had to return home to Birmingham, England. Before he left he organised a farewell century ride...



You can still keep up with Bradley's adventures via his FoE Instagram. Hopefully we'll see him back in the land of the rising sun one day, in the meantime take care brother Bradley and up the Villa

Sean's Ritchey Road Logic

Last Sunday morning we met up with Sean from the wonderful Bike Packing Japan website who had spent Saturday riding the 160km from Nagoya to Nara on his gorgeous Ritchey Logic roadbike...


He had travelled light with a very useful Fairmean bar bag...


The bike is a well thought out mix of Sram Red, Rival and Force...



A huge thank you to Sean for taking the time to meet up and chat bikes and routes. You can follow Bike Packing Japan on Instagram and Vimeo.

Ame-San's Bridgestone Chero

Ame-san is a Nara based shoemaker, leather craftsman and fellow bicycle nerd. His custom Bridgestone Chero mini velo is one very classy bike...


Ame-san has crafted and hand stitched his own leather saddle cover...


And leather grips...


They're hand stitched under the bars enclosing the brake cables...


He also hand cut and polished the mudguards (fenders for our Yankee readers)...


And even hand crafted leather cable clips...


Like we said, classy, very classy.
