How was your weekend?

Mine was extremely busy filled with bonenkai, a photo shoot, birthday parties and such like.

The shoot we did was for our latest collaboration with Muro Scents and we took things to new heights:

As you'll soon see the product shots came out really nice, and I cannot wait to share them with you all, we wanted to really make emphasis on the package we will be offering, so we shot the products in a special way.

After doing that we did some image shots in the Nishi Azabu area, because Cartel Bikes is a Nishi Azabu brand (How many of you can say that?).

I grabbed this selfie of myself and the new product, with the hopes of building anticipation on the Cartel instagram

I can say the shoot was a success and thank Daisuke Urano for his continued hard work with the Cartel! 

The shoot built my apetite up quite significantly - so I rode over to Miyota soba in the neighboring Aoyama for a meat free lunch.

It was very filling and I topped it off with hot Soba water (the water that soba is boiled in)!

In last Friday's post I mentioned how excited I was to see how people will start customising our 2016 Avenue Lo bikes - well here is a 2016 Matt Olive that was put together by Diner for one of their customers:

The two stand out items being:


And the other being:


One stand out moment from my weekend was this view from a friends apartment in Tamachi - everything moving below, while we enjoyed a clear view that stretched into Tokyo bay, with this beautiful blue sky serving as it's background.

With the soundtrack provided by the one and only Kateb Habib...perfect!
