The always amazing Lee Basford is behind the fantastic video produced for the Tokyo stop of the “Rapha Rides” project (taking place in 20 cities around the world). Not only is it a beautiful look at taking in Tokyo by bike, it also features one of my design heroes (Groovisions). On the negative side, this […]
Spoon & Tamago highlights the beautiful bike work of Nobuyuki Tani, and ex-Sony designer who ditched it all to concentrate on bikes — he also makes custom jobs, like the bike that was used in the live-action Kiki’s Delivery Service movie.
The latest post on State of Tokyo is about PauseDraw, which I shared last week, but here’s another recent post on the site that shows off the fantastic looking Brotures Harajuku bike shop. Tokyo definitely has some awesome bike shops, which often feel like mini-museums when you visit them.
Here’s a fantastic photo story for the Rapha website by Tokyo-based photographer Lee Basford (who’s done a lot of cycling-related photography in the past, and whose work I love) covering Rapha’s Supercross series in Nobeyama. Striking shots. Found via Canvas.
As I mentioned when I wrote about it at SNOW Magazine, this past Friday night I headed out to Koenji to catch the reception of Antonin Gaultier’s “2005-2010: Collected Archives” show. It was held at Alin Huma’s F de C Tokyo multi-purpose space, and it was my first visit there. I had a really nice […]
Even though I was planning on going, I missed out on Paper Sky‘s “Bicycle Club” event this past Saturday at the farmer’s market in front of the UN University, but the magazine’s Lucas Badtke-Berkow has posted a few photos from the day, both for the bicycle event and the booth the magazine had at the […]
Wanted to post this a while back and for some reason didn’t get around to it, but really enjoyed Tim Rudder’s report on the cycling trip he took to Nikko (from Tokyo and back).
The new issue of Paper Sky (31) is a special one, marking a major renewal for the magazine. The most obvious change is the cover design, but you’ll find English content creeping back into the magazine as well — for now, mostly with intro paragraphs to each article, but Cameron Allan McKean‘s article on sento […]
Tim Rudder took the afternoon to draw a girl on a fixed gear bike, and walks us through the process.
