This bike is an endangered species in the more popular neighborhoods in Japan. A brakeless track bike can carry hefty fines now and the popularity of fixed freestyle rides is taking over the old-school NJS whips. Ikuma captured this rare bomber pro locked up in what appears to be Yokohama, where the police have yet to crack down on the brakeless track bikes. This is one beautiful bicycle. I wish he had a side-profile shot!
