I am working on an article for a European cycling magazine at the moment and had the pleasure to meet Mr. Tanabe today. He has been building the by now legendary KALAVINKA bikes for the Keirin scene for over 30 years. A really nice and friendly man and I was welcomed in his small and well stocked workshop. Today was a good day, having a chance to meet people like Mr. Tanabe is making all the dragging of heavy camera gear worth it all. I will post some more from this article when it's all done and in print.
