In the summer of 2009, 13 cyclists from Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco took their fixies to the Land of the Rising Sun for an ambitious undertaking: A 350-mile tour from Tokyo to Osaka. Their goal (along with survival) was to experience a more intimate kind of travel and make a documentary of their adventure. After watching these videos… I want to do this type of trip so bad….

A few months back urban1cycle was brain storming and came up with the idea to bring two different idea’s together.. the fixed gear / single speed scene with vinyl toy world.. Some might not know too much about vinyl toy’s… many companies out there that product high end vinyl toys that I consider art and others do too.. Many big names out there such as Maihiro and Kidrobot.. After looking through Maihiro work, I def got interested and wanted to work together with them.. I contacted Nakanari @ Maihiro, after a few weeks of idea’s being tossed around. He came up with the ninja skitty idea. Then I contaced our boys @ Velocity wheels, who were totally down for the colab… and we got our hands on a sick set of white B43′s.. Here is a sneak peek of the colab… COMING SOON!
Here is a wheel detail of the design..
The finished project is coming real soon!
