Affinity and Kenzo Minami Digitizer

AFFINITY CYCLES x KENZO MINAMI = DIGITIZER from Cinecycle on Vimeo.

The signature Affinity “Kissena“ track frame is the key component of “Digitizer” and represents the pinnacle of bicycle frame technology. Kenzo Minami, an artist who grew up in Japan in the ’80s, experienced the huge economic boom fueled by the country’s technological supremacy firsthand. The graphic design that dominated that era embraced a euphoric dream of all that technology could be. Kenzo’s inspiration for “Digitizer” came from this nostalgia, tempered with practical purpose. This bike available for purchase here.

KASHIMAX x NAGASAWA SADDLE

Check out these results of collaboration between NAGASAWA and KASHIMAX . These saddles still have original Kashimax 5 gold shape but with extra padding and with more of a rounded nose  for greater comfort. Each 5 gold saddle like this one is handmade in Osaka  Japan. You can get this saddle at CHARI & CO NYC. Pick one up before they are all gone because this is probably the only run they will do.

Big in Japan…

Fixed gear/ single speed is very big in Japan. It’s not uncommon to see fixie chicks riding around Tokyo. Love their style with a Japanese twist…
