May is National Bike Month, and we’re celebrating our love of cycling all month long. For commuting, racing, fitness and fun, we will be featuring all those gorgeous bicycles and the hot gear that just make you get outside and ride your bike!
First up is Tokyobike, a chic little bicycle and accessories shop just opened in Soho, on the corner of Prince St. and Bowery. Tokyobike is a small, independent bicycle company founded in 2002 in the quiet Tokyo suburb of Yanaka, and this is their only store in the US. The design of their bicycles and the other accessories they carry are beautifully minimal and typically Japanese. There are five bike models produced in a sophisticated palette, ranging from the Single Speed (also fixed gear) to the 8 speed New Balance Limited, a collaboration with the sneaker brand.
The shop also carries a range of bicycle and other accessories such as backpacks, helmets, leather goods, desk and tabletop items very much in tune with the aesthetic of the bicycles.
