On the LES: Handsome Stuff for Rolling Fast

None 11 Photos Narifuri
On a scale of not being able to remove the Citi Bike from its dock to powering through the Alps in a yellow jersey, let’s say you’ll fall somewhere in the middle during the next few months.

And let’s say you should know about Narifuri, an LES spot with a bunch of really handsome cycling clothes that’ll also have outstanding street bikes soon. It comes by way of Japan and it’s open as we speak.

Let’s start with a staggering fact here. They’ve got cycling suits. That is, lapels and buttons and occasionally pinstripes and all. Cycling suits.

And there are polos and a bomber jacket. All of it is either the type of stuff that breathes and is mesh-lined and moisture-wicking or heavily thermalized, depending on the season (you can take a look here).

But about the bikes. They’ll have bodies from Helmz in there soon, tires from Bridgestone and parts from everyone. Then you just start choosing what goes where and, ta-da, your bike.

And to answer your burning question, yes, they’ll be making a Star Wars bike.

And that does it for us today.
