Track bikes in Osaka/Kobe/Kansai Pref.
Just got back from a trip southwest - found a few nice bikes, and saw some flash past before I could whip my camera out.
Pick of the crop was this King Speed I found in Kobe. The owner was well chuffed that I wanted to take photos of his bike. In fact, I found everyone in Kobe and Osaka really happy to talk about their bikes. In Tokyo it seems everyone wants to be a bit cool.
I've put most of the pics on my blog - easier and I can make them bigger. I was please to find a brand new Vivalo with the new sticker design. I also spotted an old seatpost I've never seen before.

Also, this is waaay OT, but I put some pics of two Tadao Ando buildings up too. If you're an architecture fan you might like them - I got some never before seen "spy" shots.
i have the same dissizit thing in the back. haha. i love the color and simplicity of this bike.
i'd eat my own young for that gan well saddle. its such the eyeball sex.
nice..thanks for the pics.
Oh, and I wish these shots had turned out better - they're of a Campagnolo Gran Sport equipped Vivalo road bike. I'd never seen Gran Sport stuff before except in catalogues.
