Kinfolk Cross is Big in Japan

Shawn from King Kog was over in Japan, visiting the home of Kinfolk frames. After visiting Kusaka San, the builder of Kinfolk, he was joined by the Kinfolk Japan team to partake in a cross race. Bob Woods shot some photos of this race, which you can see at his Flickr.

Looks like a fun race!

Trackosaurus Rex: Kinfolk Road with Sugino 75

To commemorate the opening of Kinfolk’s new store at 94 Wythe in Brooklyn, Sean from King Kog commissioned Kinfolk‘s Kusaka-San to build a vintage-inspired road bike to compliment the rare Sugino 75 road group he acquired. Down to the disc wheel! This bike is insane and Kyle at Trackosaurus Rex has a great story on Kinfolk that you should really check out, along with more photos of this machine.

New Kinfolk Kits

My friends at Kinfolk Studios in Brooklyn have just launched a pre-order of their new Endo Customs cycling kit. We all know that Endo’s kits are the best in the US, so there’s no debate over the quality. Put in your pre-order at Kinfolk!

Also, check out a short video the guys made below.

Jesse’s Kinfolk Bosco Fixed Cruiser
Beautiful Bicycle: Jesse's Kinfolk Bosco Fixed Cruiser

While a track bike with drops and a negative stem look great in photos, the reality is, at a certain point in one’s life, you just wanna cruise. If anyone knows about cruising, it’s Rivendell Cycles and that’s where Jesse picked up these Nitto Bosco Bullmoose bars for his Kinfolk track bike. Personally, I love it. I’m sure it’ll rub the purists the wrong way but they’re not the ones riding in style like this!

Kicking Around Kinfolk Studios in Brooklyn
Kinfolk Studios

Kinfolk Studios is a space that change every time I visit Brooklyn. I remember when Maceo and Ryan ambitiously signed a lease to the space and began the lengthy process of construction. They busted their asses for a year, getting the space ready. With the Kinfolk Studios bar and restaurant open and cracking, the design offices upstairs are bustling with new creative projects.

While most of the space was a bit cluttered with work, the stairwell and Maceo’s Kinfolk track provided more than enough inspiration to get some lens love. I still love that Kinfolk Brooks saddle…
