Taipe Bike Show

underwhelming, i’d say if i had to choose one word to sum up the TBS. most interesting thing about was – and yes they do sponsor me but it’s true – the BLK TEC all-carbon, bladed spoke wheels.

or maybe i’m just being an old crank. it’s a distinct possibility.

one very awesome moment was seeing Terry Lin, owner of Caffe Terry in Taichung (and voted one of the top ten cycling cafes in the world by Outside Magazine), wearing a crankpunk tee…!

another was the Kuwahara booth – the bike i wanted so bad as a kid was right there. i felt like stealing it.

the Simple bike was, after the Lapierres of course, my favorite bike in the show.

anyway, here’s some images.
