Last Friday we were out of Beijing and into the great beyond with a 125km ride which took up a well spent 5 hours. It was an incredible journey with a few stops for flats but a good overall speed and a sunny day to get a sweet tan. Check out the photos we took and make sure you stay posted for our next ride!
Some projects take time, but the end result is unbelievable. The proud new owner of this ride is a designer. Knowing he’d be able to choose every last detail on his bike meant he took his time.
After going back and forth on several basic concepts, we finally found the one. It then went through another round of sketches and mock-ups before being sent off to paint.
With a few paint details that reflect his business, a tongue-in-cheek reference to his namesake, and a clean aesthetic that exemplifies his sharp design sense, this bike has a lot to say to anyone who is caught looking at it. Just don’t forget to pick your jaw up off the floor!
Built up with nothing but the highest quality parts, this rig will pull its rider along like an excited dog on a leash. And we always have a soft spot for sleek, ultra-light street beasts like this one!

One of our famous Internal Gear hub builds just rolled out the door of our Beijing shop. Classic and classy with Tig welded Italian Columbus Zona tubing and the Alfine internal gear hub are what set this apart from the crowd. This subdued but elegent bicycle will be cruising the streets of Stockholm in the coming months and years.
Some morning veiwing for you all!
We are the sole distributors for Schindlehauer in China and this is close to our roots being grounded in the fixed/free wheel world. Pure, seemless, and designed for abuse with integrated seatpost, and headset paired with light weight components right down to the Gates Carbon Drive; which never needs to be tensioned, aligned, or oiled.

Come along with our shop manager as we get out of Beijing. We will be setting a medium pace and any type of bicycle is welcome to come. We got the tools but prepare some water and bring spare inner tubes. The ride will be a bit over 100km but will be well worth the effort as we march through some beautiful countryside.
The ride is this Friday and we will be meeting up at the shop at 9am, prepare for a fullish day of riding with a break halfway.

It’s a great place to keep up to date with whats going on around the shop and upcoming rides and the like. Especially on those lunch breaks or coffee stops. We aren’t going to make you like us but you really should!
A Natooke bike will be heading off to Uganda, the place where we got our name. This is no ordinary bike either with its full on Uganda flag colour style. It will be rocking the gentle slopes in no time at all. That basket was recently added on to create more comfort in the back and a few more green bananas in the front!
We have a newish Flying Banana black and red bike up for grabs. It has been ridden around Beijing for a couple of months but has to go up due to financial strains on the owner. Not that that is your concern, but this sweet ready to go bike should be!
The bike is sold but we can help sell your bike if you are leaving Beijing or just need a bit of cash in dire straits. Get in touch to find out how we can work together!
We have recently brought in a whole bunch of internal gear hubs for customers seaking out a new way to roll. The hubs that we will be stocking are the beautiful Shimano Nexus 7 speed (1250RMB) and the top of the shelf, nothing better, stuff dreams are made of, Shimano Alfine 8 speed (2250RMB). Internal gear hubs give a minimalist and far more reliable way for you to lug around extra gears for better comfort and longer rides. We only stock components that we would use and Shimano is known for pulling out nothing but consistent quality!
