Well today we started our day a little earlier than usual to prepare for a shoot we had scheduled for later in the day, so I brought my bike into Diner for them fit in their forthcoming *new* 3 spoke carbon wheel and their new Carbon saddle... so my bike not only looked good, but I swear it had a whole new feel to it... a much faster feeling.

 

 

We started the shoot around Yogoi-koen where the park's various foliage had come into what I would deem to look like some artist's impression of Japan in Autumn (though it feels like the dead of winter).

 

 

The shoot spanned over 7 cuts, with a good few of them be downhill at speed and uphill with as much vigor as I could muster, really built up a sweat and got my lungs moving.

 

 

We were blessed to able to work with a very talented photographer called 'Nowri', who really made great use of our settings.

 

 

We followed the shoot with an interview, where we really go into depth about what 'Cartel Bikes' means to me, and what sets us apart from other bicycle makers...lets just say it's that our movement is a social one, a movement which encourages you to do more with your time and therefore getting the most out of your lifestyle...

 

 

I call the 'lifestyle support system'...my bike buys me more time and allows me to move independently of public transport aka no last trains and very little need for Taxis.... it was an awesome session and I want to thank 'On Your Mark magazine' in advance.

 

 

In other news I have been thinking a lot about locations for shooting myself, which started when we were preparing for the shoot we did last Sunday...

 

 

I am pretty much a night walker...or should I say night rider, so for me the settings will almost always feature the lights of Tokyo at night:

 

 

I guess this is how I experience my road... what about you?
