Mono Style magazine
In Japan there is a vast array of bicycle magazines and since I have lived here the number of such publications has certainly increased as bicycles have become more popular. Now most magazines feature stories relating to bicycles or bicycle fashion etc and recently my shop has been featured in a popular national magazine called Mono Style. The article in the photo above is related to the vintage mountain bikes that I have been restoring since my shop opened last sept. My boss is also a big fan of vintage / retro MTBs and it all started with me restoring for him a fully chrome 1985 Mongoose ATB , shorty after that he had aquired several more vintage MTBs which keep me busy over the long cold winter. The bicycles that I restored are currently in an exhibition in Tokyo but due to return to Niigata for another exhibition in mid May. All the bikes in the exhibition are also for sale and has been closely restored to their original condition. Pictured above is the cover of Mono Style magazine and the article about my shop.
