Hiroshi at his "Bicycle Studio" in Berkeley sells bikes and parts for those of us who like high-quality bicycles, that look like bicycles. With a focus on Japanese bicycles that mirror the best ever made in Europe, he is a valuable resource for the bits and pieces that make a bicycle right.

Eric Zimmerman (yes, "that" Eric, creator of "The Zimmerman") introduced me to his website. Best value, a custom Nitto handlebar that Hiroshi has produced, based on an old no-rise ttt bar. Only $35.

He works with a friend at a shop in Tokyo and couple of times each year and luckily for me will be there when I am in Tokyo for the "Stockist" design show the first week of September. Will keep you posted.
