We have been very lucky to hook up some great shirts, hats and sweaters from the best in Japan recently. Many of you will know of Motosan and Yohei from WBASE in Tokyo.
They have been massively influential on the Japanese BMX and Track Bike scenes for many years. I am honored to be able to offer W Base and Durcus original goods at tracksupermarket.com and in the Osaka shop, GIRA GIRA.
And if you get in the elevator in WBASE's building in Shibuya/Harajuku, and head to the 2nd floor, you will find yourself in track bike heaven, CARNIVAL. This is the Tee19 track bike shop, and was one of the first (the very first?) all-track bike shop in Tokyo.
The Tee19/Carnival crew have also been hooking up tracksupermarket/gira gira with their original tyres, shirts, sweaters, hats (new era), bags, and nitto collaboration handlebars and seat posts.
Next up is the Carnival aero alumi frames, which will be available next month! :)
This stuff is basically impossible to get outside of Japan, and well, outside of CARNIVAL too!
Oh, and for the 30 or so people who might be wondering.....NITTO does not make the beautiful B259AA riser bar anymore. It was discontinued at the end of 2007 completely, and the only one that has been available in recent time, has been the black and blue Tee19 collaboration model.... Tracksupermarket recently bought the entire remaining stock of T19/Nitto parts, and they are selling very fast....only a few items left on October 22.
Oh, and they have also sent us some cute ahead fork caps for 1 1/8 inch fork frames! Yes, although it might not seem that way, not every frame in Japan is 1 inch and threaded! :)
I will be trying to add more and more products for all of you riding oversize threadless frames over the coming weeks, including stems from Nitto, and spacers to adapt B123 keirin bars to 31.8mm stems.
