Heyhey! SF girl livin' it up in Tokyo
So hmm, this is supposed to be an introduction post?
I'm 18-years-young girl, born and raised in San Francisco, where I've been riding for... f*, all my life pretty much, starting with that little tyke bike with a cute little coaster bike. I've had three bikes stolen so far — but hell, my friends and I swurr that's the equivalent to an initiation to legit cycling in the city.
And yeah, a side note. I won't ever ride a fixie — yes, I've tried — and I'll take that steel, lugged frame any day over your carbon and aluminum.
I've just moved to Japan for school and I'm hella eager to see what kinds of pretty bikes I can dig up here —*I hear there's quite a good market but all I've seen are those mamacharis.

If you love lugged steel, be sure to check out the Classic & Vintage forum. I have a few of them myself.

Welcome to Tokyo. Which school are you attending?? I've been here coming on 3.5 years now and go to Sophia University as a full time student.

So many amazing Japanese lugged bikes. Good place to be in, I'd love to score a Zunow one day.

lugged steel is great and all
but aluminum and carbon make great frames! have you not ridden them?
