Gordon is also a bicycle lover, fixed gear rider and formerly a track racer. He used to write for bicycle magazines as well, for sure he knows what he is talking about!
As for Wallpaper* if you don't know it, wikipedia says : "Wallpaper (trademarked Wallpaper* with an asterisk) is a Time Inc. magazine focusing on travel, design, entertainment, fashion, and media."
As for their web version :
"Rather than publishing reformatted material from the magazine, it covers breaking news across design, interior, art, architecture, fashion, travel, and technology."
In one word : cool :)
Article is here : Cycle Mode International, Tokyo.

I must add that some of the photos are by Gordon himself. You can find him also on twitter.
