More about slow, than fast, Tokyo Bike believes that speed is not always the aim, destination is only part of the story, and losing yourself in a city’s small back lanes and expansive parks and gardens, is one way of switching off and escaping it all.
Tokyo Bike is a small and independent bicycle company founded by bicycle enthusiast Ichiro Kanai in the old Tokyo suburb of Yanaka eight years ago. Designed for the city, each bicycle weights between 9 and 11 kilos making it easy to carry up to your apartment and light to ride. To make the stops and starts of urban riding smoother, bikes have been designed with a smaller 650 diameter wheel.
The Tokyo Bike story is about reasonably priced, simple bikes, pared back to the basic elements, that are easy to ride and to carry and are available in a wide range of colours.
Currently only in Tokyo and Sydney, Tokyo Bike will be opening very soon in London.
