If you live or pop into Oakland every now and then but have yet to stop by King Kog‘s westside spot you’re surely missing out. With a collection of primo track frames old and new as well as some mighty nice road throwback they’ve definitely got one of the better locations in Northern California. Follow along on a typical Sunday morning starts with a hot cup of joe and getting the shop up and going for a mellow day…
Last week snapping some shots on one of my favorite bike shops in Taipei City. Kendo Shop always got some stoked goodies that differ themselves from other bike shops. The shop with eight years experience is operated by Ken Su, a knowledgable guy that I’m always glad to talk with. Here they sell Leader Bikes, NJS, Cinelli, Nabiis A2, Look, and their own aluminum sick frame Kendo Orbit! Clothing such as God & Famous, Chari & Co NYC, Rebel 8, Swrve, YNOT Cycle and so forth. However, what always satisfies me is the comfortable atmosphere and a big space!! Never wanna leave the shop as I step in…
I rode over to Pedal Hard yesterday after work to chill for a bit and while I was there decided to shoot some photos. This is Tom’s of Pedal Hard’s Watanabe NJS build that he’s been rolling on for a bit. Lots of goodies on it including those Cane Creek wheels that I’ve wanted for years. Those hubs are just too sick. It was hard to shoot these inside a bike shop, at night and without a tripod but some of the shots came out alright. This bike is just too rad not to share…those dudes have a gold mine of parts and bikes you could spend days looking at in there. More to come soon.
This reminds me of the old Oak Park Bike Kitchen! You can really score some good vintage stuff at bike co-ops if you dig a little…not to mention how much they help the community get out on some bikes! Krank It Up! is keeping it real inTallahassee Florida if you’re out that way and looking for a place to work on your bike or pick some stuff up on the cheap.
Nice teaser for the Man Grip bike shop! Some sick style and dope tricks in here for sure. Definitely not bad for a teaser type video. Dig it.
I knew I forgot something for yesterday! This is fellow team member Krys‘ bike shop she wrenches at…718 Cyclery in Brooklyn. Pretty neato piece on what goes on at their shop in getting a bike built to a customers needs. A really cool process compared to what I see happening at most shops here in Sacramento. Perfect.
