All-City Japan Tour: Shop Visit with Blue Lug
Jumping back into a bit of coverage from our tour to Japan this past December we'd like to take you on a visit to two locations of Blue Lug, which is not only one of the most famous bike shops in the world, but also one of the best. The care with which they have carefully picked the products that they carry, created their own line of goods through both the Blue Lug and Fairweather labels, display their merchandise, and absolutely crush it when it comes to custom bike building...Well, it's an absolute must visit for any cyclist traveling to Tokyo. Not only that, but their staff are all of the A+ variety. Such kind wonderful people, and they make a damn good Miso too!
Walk with us on photographic tour of this landmark of Japanese cycling.

You have no idea how stoked we are to see some of the things we've made hang among their cycling culture collection

One of the coolest things about any shop visit is when we get to meet All-City riders.
So flattered to show up to the Hatagaya location to see this hand drawn sign waiting for us. And the deptictions were surprisingly accurate, they nailed Nate's long hair and my receding hairline.
Getting to sign next to Grand Peterson!
And that my friends is why you need to visit this shop sometime in your life. They have everything, and their staff are some of the kindest, most caring folks you could hope to meet!
Huge thanks to all of the people at Blue Lug for supporting, it's an honor to be includded in your store!
