Inside The Punch Cycle, Tokyo.


If you love fixed gear bikes, and in particular the Japanese Keirin bikes, and you're visiting Tokyo, there's at least one place you simply need to visit. And no, no matter what the fixed mag writes, it's not Carnival, although that's a cool shop too. 

It's Kitajima-san's shop, Punch Cycle in Asakusa. 

I also want to say Hi! to Yuki and all the cool people I met there. Arigato!

I just bought the red Nagasawa in one of those pics. I agree, out of all of the shops in Tokyo, this one was by far the best

I live just up the road from this shop and just stumbled upon it today but it was closed. Any idea on prices of frames or projects in there?

Harry, it's been year and a half since I visited Punch so I really cannot say much about what's the price level or what's on offer there at the moment.
