Geekhouse has really nails the brightly-colored bicycle and while I prefer my Mudville as black as they come, some people love the neon. Take NB from Blue Lug‘s new Team Mudville… Now getting dirty in Japan during this year’s season. See more photos of this bright beast at the Blue Lug Flickr!
Last night, Japanese bike shop, Blue Lug’s Flickr exploded with all kinds of new frame pack bags from local frame builder and bag maker, Fairweather. Bike pack bags are great and all, but I was more pumped on seeing the new side-access bottle cages (made in Japan!). Sure, it solves the problem of how you remove your bottle with your front triangle is filled with bags, but I just like to see a new spin on an everyday object.
See more at the Blue Lug Flickr and ordering information at the Blue Lug website, although, I’m not sure if they ship to the States.
Blue Lug Japan has been supporting Ian from Icarus Frames for some time now. It all started with a few track bikes, then a road bike here and there, but this frame in particular really resonates with me. With a little more casual geometry, a SON generator light, custom stem and pretty balleur parts selection, you can’t help but think of all the rad rides and roads this thing will see.
Check out more photos at Icarus Frames!
When you want to carry just a little more than your jersey pockets will allow and the idea of having a backpack on just isn’t cutting it, pack bags are great alternatives. With more and more companies breaking into the market, Blue Lug Japan is supporting their local manufacturers, Fairweather.
I have to admit, these are the nicest looking pack saddle bags I’ve seen so far. I really like the easy-to-access top velcro pocket. I know Marty at Geekhouse has been loving his for weekend trips. See more photos at the Blue Lug Flickr and pick one up at Blue Lug.
One of my favorite shops is carrying one of my favorite bag makers. Blue Lug in Japan now has Swift Industries’ full line in stock at their shop. The Polaris Porteur is such a rad bag. Check out more great photos at the Blue Lug Flickr.
Blue Lug loves American-made cycling packs and recently, they got in a full stock of ILE Transfer Race Bags. Of course you can buy those from Eric at ILE direct here in the States, I just wanted to give Blue Lug some love for their great photos. See the rest here.
Blue Lug just loves Archive Bags and I’m sure Victor loves seeing his products over in Japan. If you’re looking for a new bag and you’re in Japan, check these out!
There’s a lotta ‘Mericuh in these two photos, all the way in Japan at Blue Lug, the purveyors of all that is fine in this cycling world. Their latest acquisition (for sale) is this custom Cielo cross, loaded with Chris King and Paul components. I love me some mango! Check out more at Blue Lug’s Flickr.
Blu Lug got a look (and stock apparently) of SWRVE‘s newest offering, their limited edition indigo shorts. I always appreciate Blue Lug’s product photos, so check more out here at their Flickr.
I’m way into this build that Blue Lug compiled for their Hunter Cycles cross frame. Check out more details here, at the Blue Lug Flickr!
