Finally I uploaded a selection of my photos taken at the Cycle Mode Tokyo in December 2009. About 80 of them. I wanted to make it in several parts but hardly found the time to do it. I only did for 2 articles : for the Fuji booth and for the Italian brands represented there. Also I had a special selection of the photos featured on Wallpaper* but I had much more, so here it is.
In this article you can see a selection of the selection :) For more please check the album in the gallery : Cycle Mode 2009 or the slideshow with large size photos on Flickr : Cycle Mode 2009 Slideshow
It seems that an other pic I took from this saddle for Wallpaper* was also featured on many blogs and forum.
The Tokyo/Shibuya shop was well represented.
Very chic booth, I did not know this brand.

Gorgeous frames for less than 150000 yens in Japan for the steel version and 230000 for the stainless ones. At his booth I also met Karta Healy designer/creator from London. [he did the poster]. Karta (and his shop) is featured this month in the Japanese version of GQ!
