From Japan (Part 1): Grunge Lives at Y’s Bike Shop in Akasaka!

In Akasaka neighborhood of Tokyo.

I am kinda clueless to what this logo signifies on this bike stem. It’s a reasonably nice stem, like a Ritchey but polished. If I spoke better Japanese, I would have asked for an “It’s Techno” stem, or maybe an “It’s Indie Rock” stem.

Wait a minute….there’s profit to made in these ideas.
