Nihon-jin at the Bike Shop

Nihon-jin.jpg At Elliott Bay Bikes, we had a gang of Japanese bike enthusiasts stop in. Minato Seiya-san of Depot Cycle & Recycle, a shop in Ichikawa near Tokyo and Yamamoto Atsushi-san, maker of the Gunung label of hats, chatted with me when I emerged out of my mechanic station hole. I asked them about their travels in Taiwan, and then I told them about my downhill run in Nikko. It turns out they’re friends with Morita Yohei of Cog Magazine who stopped into the shop a couple months ago. Minato-san and Yamamoto-san are on their way to Philadelphia this month for a messenger race. While in Seattle, they are visiting the Seattle wing of Reload Bags.

That happens a lot in China, btw, you’ll see all sorts of crazy things on the street. I’ll never forget bucket-of-meat bike in Beijing.

Alfine Hub, Drop Bars: OMG I want that!

Alfine Drop Bar Kudos to the guys over at Hiawatha Cyclery for figuring this one out. I’ve been after this setup for a while for my On-One Pompino. It’s an Alfine internally geared hub with a convensional drop bar-end shifter. The trick is adding the Travel Agent to make up the extra cable pull necessary to shift the internal hub.
