    Love the old Japanese TT bikes. It's not uncommon to see them around Kyoto. In fact you can still buy them. One shop I regular, has a beautiful Tange frame, purple-blue one with red lettering. It's a track bike but similar frame. BTW you may or may not know that Kaze means 'wind' in Japanese. BTW steel frames still are very popular here in Road, MTB and Hybrid forms.

    Gorgeous! Would you mind telling what kind of bottle and cage you have? Also will you change out the pedals? Just curious. I am thinking about pedals.

    Thanks! The cage is a Bontrager RL: Bontrager: RL Cage (Model #09664) and the bottle is just a generic plastic one the bike shop gives away.

    I have no plans to change out the pedals. I am a runner more than a cyclist, so the bike is for easy cross training rides, and just getting around town.

    2014 Trek Dual Sport


    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    I removed the kick stand, bottle holder, and heavy duty tubes to lighten the bike. Running Bontrager Hard Case Lite 32c w/liners.
    The only other change I would make would be a carbon fiber front fork.

    In June I went to 23/25C Roubaix Armadillo Elite tires. Like the new size much better.
    Also removed the wheel reflectors. I'm kewl now.

    Not intentional. Some youngsters thought they were being cute. They have no idea what it stands for.
    I look at it from its Greek origin as a symbol for The Incessant Motion of the Universe. Actually that symbol goes back a lot further than the Greeks.

    Here in Japan we have to hand over anything we find to the police and after 3 months if no-one has claimed it, we get to keep it.
    Same there?

    Usually if it's on the side of the road its for the garbage. And my mom noticed it there for a few weeks before I noticed it. It was also at a foreclosed house so I'm pretty sure nobody wanted it.

    Specialized Sirrus Sport Pro fresh from the bike shop yesterday afternoon. I have since removed the reflectors because that is apparently what the cool kids do..



    Much nicer to ride than a Citibike, surprisingly

    The plastic wheel reflectors don't do a good job of reflecting, imbalance the wheel, and put undue stress on spokes which will manifest as problems down the road... there are better reflective materials on the market and they are only put there due to governmental safety requirements.

    Nice bike too.
