More on Japan

Things seem to be getting worse. More and more tragic.

I'm out at the Taiwan Cycle show now and there are lots of Japanese out here. Business as usual. Efficient and hardworking as ever. Also Nitto is still running. We thought that Nitto's northern plant which is in relatively close proximity to the quake and even closer to the Nuclear Power Plant would be damaged for sure. I'm pleased to say its still open. Obviously this is a tiny positive against all the fatalities and destruction but its something.
As soon as I'm back from Taiwan we will be launching an Ebay charity auction, all proceeds going Japanese relief funds. We will be putting some juicy bits up on the bay with some help from some other UK bike shops & brands. There will also be a little fund raiser at Look Ma No Hands. More to come on this.

Stunning Tonic Fabrication Supernaut Build




We built this Supernaut up for a review in the next Fixed Mag. I was lucky enough to give it a little test before it went out & can honestly say it doesn't get better. The frame feels so powerful. When you get out of the saddle there is no flex. Paired up with the carbon wheels you can get up to top speed with ease. The bike was harder to stop than my Ohtaki, the lack of flex paired with Sram Omniums drives extra force onto the pedals. This bikes is a beast like no other. We built it just the way Andy likes it, I'm sure he's going to have some fun. More photos here

 

All City Mr. Pink



I'm loving the new All City Mr. Pink. I saw a sneak peak on Prolly a few weeks back but not too much was revealed. New York brand All City will soon have a bike to cover all of my favourite angles. Fixed gear, road / touring & single speed cross. 
 The Mr. Pink represents a new breed of steel road frame. Decent tubing, versatile & hopefully not too expensive. Great for touring, weekend rides or commuting. When they drop in the UK we'll have one in for sure.

Dave Daniell is a Track racer with a very promising future and a hopeful for the 2012 Olympics. He paid us a visit the other day to pick our brains on the NJS kit that he has been instructed to get for the Keirin circuit in Japan as well as shop for an NJS approved frame. Having looked around the shop and scrutinised the Nagasawa frame, he took our S1 prototype out for a test ride around London. More photos here

Custom Nagasawa



Nagasawa's look great in metallic colours. This frame just came in, we're looking forward to building it up. 

 


The Milani Accacio Purro is begging for the Sram Yellow edition group. Good thing we had a customer who felt the same. 




 

BAUM Cycles





Baum Cycles are the Australian Independent Fabrications. Their steel and ti bikes are stunning. The custom colour ways are some of the slickest I'v seen. 
Baum on custom colours - "Unlike many custom builders, we don’t allow free reign when it comes to paint customisation. We’ll admit to being picky about the way our bikes look on the road and trail because while your bike most definitely says something about you, it can’t help but to also speak about us.
Together we’ll devise a paint scheme, colour selection and component kit that makes your heart skip a beat; because we know as well as any good tailor does that the only way we get to look good is by making you look great."
