Tokyo Bikes

Tokyo Bikes

The amount of bikes in Tokyo may even rival that of Cambridge or even Amsterdam!

Of course, the Japanese corporeal form being typically less voluminous than the American or British form (this is a good thing for them, in general), the riders of most of these probably don't qualify for quality saddles such as the RealMAN (R):

Check it out - I'm offering a free drink* for the first person to spot one in production use on a native Tokyo bike.
Avid cyclomaniacs should also be sure to check out other ShelBroCo products, such as the FasterCard(R), or the Product W amphetamine-free performance enhancing product (check it out for your next marathon or shagathon - does the trick for me - I managed a 27.43m jog** on my treadmill, fueled by nothing other than a 28-tablet dose of Product W, and 55l of water. Furthermore, I managed it after eating a spaghetti bolognese, and a whole Battenberg Cake, which theoretically should have slowed me down by destroying my normally aero-dynamic profile).

Well, gotta dash - time to mount my RealMAN and get those legs PUMPING ...

* In fact, I have every faith in your ablity to do this. Pre-emptively, I'm going to have a drink for you weekly until you deliver the goods.
** Technically, 30 yards***: I converted to metric to cater for your international readership.
*** about 89 shaku, for the traditionalists amongst you who, like me, believe that metrification was the thin end of the wedge.
