    Toyko

    My buddy desperately wants Toyko steel and has a friend on the ground there.
    Where do we send him for Toyko cycling goodness? Sorry if this has been done before.

    I see this has the makings of a long useless thread.
    How about.... where specifically in Tokyo might we send our man on the streets?
    Any used stuff frame wise?

    it also depends on whether "cycling goodness/tokyo steel" = ~56-58cm keirin frames...or other goodness/steel.

    I don't think he rides bigger than 56. I hadn't even considered sizing an issue, silly me.

    precisely what i was implying. not impossible, but...

    although, other "steel", from NJS drops to components to even smaller frames, would be varying degrees of easier to find.

    I think Ceya was referring to Kyoto being south of Toyko. But I don't know Japanese geography very well, so I'm not exactly sure where Toyko is.

    definitely closer to kyoto, but currently south of osaka (wakayama)...southwest of tokyo. kyoto is where i usually end up, since that is where my friends are, though i expect to be in tokyo end-of-feb.

    In the Military we refer to Kyoto as going south like if I was going to Sasebo. south of the Island.

    It like in NY we say "going down south" even going to DC.

    If we was doing grid or magnetic then I would say west or the way some Japan say to the center , being since it is near Gifu which the center of the island.

    S./F,
    CEYA!

    I gotcha..so in the military south isnt really south sometimes? Going 'south to Kyoto' is slang?

    God damnit. I was making a joke about the misspelling of "Toyko" in the subject line.
