Evening ride and Bicycle Shops in Yokohama.

Tags: yokohama, bicycle, shop

Saturday evening I took the Feather for a ride in Yokohama, a little bit everywhere from Minato Mirai to the heights of Yamate.
It was a very pleasant night.

I took the Nikon D5000 with me and shoot few pics.



I love this place. There is a nice mood and It is very photogenic.

Many photographers were around.



I tried different set-ups in manual mode. I only show few of them as the view is little bit always the same…

Ok I tried an auto-portrait with the minuter… Some people looked at me strangely … ah!


This is the opposite view.


And today I took the bike one more time but earlier this time as the weather was nice (now it is pouring rain!).

I first stopped at Bike Town (bought some "world champion" socks :-) ) that I presented before.

And then I went to Motomachi where I stumbled upon this shop in a street going to Yamate. It is called Maware.


I had a good chat with the owner. He is a leather worker who makes special items for bicycles as he is himself a cyclist.
I have the idea to build a new ride and I definitely want to put some leather touches on it. I love the rendering. Well, it's not for now, probably next year ...


He sells some of the bicycles presented but I was very impressed by one of the bike that was just for showing : it is a Kemper Pedersen bicycle. It was the first time I saw one. Kind of a radical bike! If I understood well it is a Denmark designed bike built in Germany (to be confirmed).


As you can see the saddle is in suspension between the seat tube and the stem. Like a bridge, very unusual. I'd love to try it one day!



On show, there was also a nice Cinelli touring bicycle with beautiful chrome lugs and Campagnolo components.





Beer anyone ?


And finally I noticed this single speed for sale, that looks very nice for easy rides.  It is a new brand called Scarabike.
It is a hand made bicycle and the welds are superb.
