Nao from Tomii Cycles has a knack for making ordinary objects extra-ordinary. Take these Velo Orange bells that he disassembles, then hand-hammers and creates a patina in the process. These retail for $30 from Tomii Cycles, or you can buy a VO Bell and do it yourself. Kudos to you, Nao!

Tomii Cycles: Kalavinka Track Ends
Tomii

The past few days, Nao from Tomii Cycles has been posting some beautiful photos from a traditional track build. From what I can tell from the Tomii Flickr, it’s being built with a 1″ steerer and Kalavinka track ends. The process is almost as alluring as the final product in this case. See more at the Tomii Flickr.

Lori’s Tomii Cycles Disc Cross
Lori's Tomii Cycles Cross Bike

When you ride a 44cm cyclocross bike, there aren’t many options out there. In fact, a lot of riders will opt for a 26″ mountain frame, which limits tire selections for ‘cross. For Lori, she wanted a cyclocross frame that would fit a fat tire and most importantly, fit her, while keeping true to the 700c wheel.

Builder Nao Tomii of Tomii Cycles wanted to take advantage of the extreme sloping top tube by making this cross bike look like a drop bar 29r mountain bike. Since a lot of people prefer their cross frames a bit smaller than their road frames, this one comes in a tad under 44cm. With 150mm Rotor cranks and Shimano Ultegra hydro disc brakes, Lori has absolute control over her bike. In fact, she’s already started riding trails on it here in Austin.

Personally, this is where custom frames triumph and when they look this good, who can argue with that? Check out this testimonial on Lori’s Instagram account.

Props to the mechanics at Mellow Johnny’s for building such a stellar rig for Lori and a huge high five goes to Nao at Tomii Cycles for building such a rad frame.
