Take a peak inside the Kansai based workshop of Kusaka San: Master framebuilder of Kinfolk and Vivalo.


Absolutely stunning photographs with more on the Flickr.

Kinfolk Goodness.

April 21, 2009


Kinfolk got a new website and what seems to be a batch of new frames.

“After a lot of work, a few flights to Japan and back, many ginger mint mojitos, weeks of jetlag, 43 freshness burgers, and 8 inches of beard, we’re happy to officially launch the Kinfolk Bicycle co. We are deeply honored and very grateful to work with Kusaka ( Vivalo ) in bringing these frames to the world. For someone of his caliber to trust us with his handiwork is an honor.”

“Containing decades of frame building experience, and made to the exacting specifications of Keirin track racing, these bikes are functional and built to last. In addition, we wanted these bikes to be beautiful as well. From the brass headbadges designed by Marco Hernandez, paint by Coat and Colorworks, to the graphics by Way&Means, no expense was spared in making them look as good as possible.”

Good on you Kinfolk… Your frames are looking super mighty and I am feeling them. I’ll take two please!
