spotty panasonics, metallico dildo barman, cystal fellow stem, sunset in osaka

A few older shots from the last couple of years.
1. A beautiful sky in Osaka, Autumn.
2.Kenchan, the guy responsible for the Metallico Dildo bars.
3.Taito, of Chickenot in Kyoto, very fast and spotty. Note the odd brake lever placement.
Many events in Japan (this was a road race in Osaka) require at least one brake be fitted, so
some riders tack the lever on the top tube to get it out of view while they are racing.
4.Blue Vittoria Mondiale tubular, on my old grey bridgestone.
5.Unfortunately Nitto Tokyo discontinued the Crystal Fellow stems in early-mid 07.
