What happens when you drop by Y’s Road in Ikebukuro? You may just run into Alin Huma, who biked there from Ginza, on the hunt for some spokes. I was there to get some degreaser and lube — I got scolded by Craig for not doing proper maintenance on my bike. It’s always nice to meet fellow bike people in town, and we then went to Cafe Pause for a coffee and chat.
Speaking of Alin and bikes, it looks like the next show at his Ginza the Edge gallery space will have a very strong bike theme. What’s Ginza the Edge? Check my most recent event listing for info on the opening exhibition.
