Well for now, nothing crazy, just few shots I took in a department store. Yes, in Japan we can find fixies in department stores!

Tokyu Hands (name of the chain) has an average good bike corner usually.

I like the Regal one in the background but maybe for now I will go for a DIY method and just cover the one I have now with a piece of leather.

If you are into messenger bags they also have some choice as you can see...

Yes you can even buy a copy of Fast Friday! Not bad for a store who sells also dishes, furniture and anything you need in a house...

Not really related, I found this paper bag : Tintin on a fixed gear in China! (if you know the comic (The blue Lotus - 1936), you should know that he is not good at it as he crashes himself soon after...)

I had no idea Tokyu Hands has fixed gear bikes and accessories. Thanks for posting this. I'm going to stop in for a browse soon.

If you are in Tokyo, the Tokyu Hands for fixed gear is the one in Shibuya. The one in Shinjuku has nothing. The one in the article is in Yokohama.

I'm looking for a replacement for my bike I had to leave behind in London ... but my budget is a bit slim at the moment. I checked Nagoya but it's expensive in terms of fixed gears& Tokyu Hands Nagoya has no bikes. So I'm thinking to by one in Tokyo. Could ya tell me the address of the Tokyu Hands Yokohama or is the one in Tokyo as 'good' as the one in Yokohama?!

I tried to get a used one but the Japanese are crazy about them ...

Cheers thank you for the help mate!

Thank you for the post i will go to Tokyu Hands at Yokohama. it s look like their is more choice than at Shibuya. it s right you find nothing at shinjuku and only handle bar Nitto and grip Oury at Ikebukuro.

Thanks for your comment and precisions. I haven't been for a while at Shibuya Tokyu Hands but from what I remember Shibuya and Yokohama stores were quite similar. Have a good shopping! :)

Oh my god I love the store I have to go to Japan now!

Even here in SF there isn't a store that has that much dedication to fixies.

Alex, for you info this shop is just a supermarket, maybe comparable to Walmart in the US... You have to see the real Pisto Bike shop.. ;-)
