CS26 Customisation

A custom tokyobike Classic Sport featuring Samurai bartape. 

Members of the Sanada family, a famous Japanese Ninja and Samurai family developed this unique weaving technique and gave the fabric it`s name. The Sanada family used the tape to wrap the handles of their swords, providing more grip and better control of the Katana in the heat of the action. Many others followed their example and soon the Sanada Himo tape was used by most Samurais throughout the country. 

The tape is made of 100% cotton, is extremely strong, durable and weather resistant. In this example its fitted here to the Nitto x Rivendell Billie bar but would work well on road bars too. This bike is currently on display at the Shoreditch store.
