Tokyo Slow

tokyobike puts form over function

Founded in 2002 in the quiet Tokyo suburb of Yanaka, tokyobike is a small, independent Japanese bicycle company. Based on the concept of ‘Tokyo Slow’ the bikes are designed to be light to ride with an emphasis on comfort over speed.

The initial goal of Tokyobike was to sell bikes ‘for the city’.
