Two wheels in Tokyo

Because the houses are smaller in Toyko there's often not enough room for full sized bicycles - but that means you often see interesting hybrid bikes on the streets. I love the choice of parts on this Bianchi (or what claims to be a Bianchi) - it could be ridden just about anywhere. It's got a Shimano Dura-Ace rear mech, a Flite titanium railed saddle, a Thompson seatpost, the longest headstem I think I've ever seen - and that must-have item, a kickstand.

Of course, you could opt for a more laidback approach to your riding...
