ToyoFrame's "Hybrid Road" and "T-Carbon Road"

Toyoframe's "T-Carbon Road" and "Hybrid Road" are now available at the shop.

Both framesets feature Carbon Fiber tubes with Chromo Steel rear triangle to combine the lightness and stiffness of carbon with the reactiveness of heat treated steel; the result is a lightweight frame that's stiff, lively and comfortable.

The "T-Carbon Road" features carbon fiber top tubes while the "Hybrid Road" features carbon fiber top tube and down tube to further reduce the weight while maintaining the unique road feel of a steel bike. The carbon tubes is co-developed with Japan's Graphite Design Cop. and the steel tubes are produced by KaiSei Steel Japan.

Both frameset come in paint finish by default, paint colour can be chosen from Toyoframe's stock colour chart. Extra cost can get you custom colour and chrome finish. All frames are handmade in Osaka, Japan with a lead time of 2.5 months.

Let's look at the pictures!

Master Tetsuya Ishigaki of ToyoFrame

We have the honour to meet Master Ishigaki and the ToyoFrame crew during our visit at TaiPei Cycle 2017. They brought us latest issue of Cycle Sports Magazine with Master Ishigaki featured in it. 

Lets look at the nice work that's produced by Master Ishigaki's Osaka workshop:

ToyoFrame Road-2 Flat Bar Built

A "commuter/city bike" built using the ToyoFrame Road-2 Frameset. We selected Deda Zero 100 Components with the humble reliable Shimano 105 Groupset and Fulcrum Racing 5 Wheelset; then finished it with matching Fabric saddle and grip. The frameset itself is handmade in Osaka, Japan with KAISEI steel tubes. Enjoy the pictures! 

Shop guests: Toyoframe (Osaka, Japan)

The gentlemen from Toyoframe came visit us on a quite weekday afternoon earlier this week. Among many things, we chatted about Osaka best ramen, cars, Japan Cyclocross and the awesomeness of STEEL bikes. We took some pictures of the frame samples they teased us with. Enjoy!
