Work trip to Nagoya
Well at this time of the year many of the cycle importers put on a display of next years models, one of the popular brands that my shop stocks is Surly from the USA and the importer for Surly is located in Nagoya City. So after leaving Niigata at 3.20pm on Tuesday afternoon we took a 7 hour bus ride to the city of Nagoya. After arriving around 10pm we caught up with a friend of my co worker Hiroshi and joined them for a few drinks before getting back to our business hotel early in the morning. The next morning after breakfast at a nearby coffee shop we took a taxi over to Fukiagi hall event center where the bicycle show was being held. There were many other brands on display but the main brands that we sell are Surly, AllCity & Haro so we spent quite some time checking out the latest offerings from those makers before putting in our order for next years stock. As you can see from the above photos fat tyre bicycles are becoming more popular and Surly now has 3 different models to choose from plus a range of custom rims.
