Awesome day at the CMWC! Tarn and I were cruising along trying to find the venu when we spotted Yuji, a really lovely Tokyo cycle messenger. We got chatting to him and tagged along with him into the venue. There was a massive turnout, Ive met so many really cool people from all over the world, including some home grown Aussie messengers from Sydney and Melbourne. There are so many amazing bikes on display, I dont know where to look next. You can see how much time, thought and design has gone into each of them, so many different colour combos and variations, its like being in a candy store.
I was getting busy taking photos and Tarn had a ride on the new Brooklyn Gangster. We met up with Prolly and and watched him bust some moves.
We ll be heading over to watch the finals today, its been great to see so many girls entered as well, I counted around 10 so far which is awesome.
All the local Tokyo bikes shops have stalls there and I picked up a few things like these sweet anodised, CNC ed brakes with a new patented pulling mechanism. Theyll be going on my new Candy Cranks ride.
