I can still remember doing a blog about kinoko cycles opening and I’m sad to say I’m doing a blog about it closing down! The shop was so amazing it was big and had everything that you need, but to be on a level I kinda miss Tokyo fixed that’s where I got all my parts for my first ever fixed bike and the people there are awesome. Hope everything for them goes well and I know it’s not the last time you hear from them.
Guys and girls of Kinoko cycles thank you for your service!
The sale starts Monday! Head down there for some good low prices on bike stuff.

With a heavy heart we have made the tough decision to close our Golden Square Shop. The date of the closure will be August 29. The business has seen a lot of changes over the last few years and unfortunately the move to a much larger space added complications we felt we just couldn’t overcome. We would like to thank everyone who visited our shop and all the customers who put their trust in us to build their dream bikes. We’ve had an amazing time at Golden Square and are very proud of everything we achieved.
Moving forward we will be putting all our efforts into our web site. We will continue to seek out brands, we will continue to work on features, photography and work on projects with talented designers. This will always be a part of what we do.
We’ve had a lot of questions recently about our range plan moving forward. Next season there will definitely be a emphasis on building our performance and casual clothing range but we will still continue to stock hard to find frames and components. We will be discontinuing our complete bike range.
Next season to name a few we will be seeing big new drops from Tokyo Fixed, Mission Workshop and Search & State. We will be welcoming back old friends such as Nari Furi and the Japanese line of Wild Things. And we will be greeting lots of new brands such as Attaqeur and Kletterworks. Please stay with us!
With the closing down of a shop comes discounts. Our sale will be massive. The majority of our sale will be in store only. The sale will be starting next week. More to come on this.
We are aiming to get all custom builds out of the store before we close. For the few projects which will not be complete be Aug 29 we will happily transfer the build onto a bike shop of your choosing.
After shop closure all Kinoko Vouchers will be honoured online only.
Had a free time today, so I took advantaged and got on to my bike and rode somewhere. Weather was so awesome had so much fun going around London. Grabbed some lunch with some mates at Five guys in Covent Garden, then went up north to have a wonder around Emirates stadium and check out the new kit. Yes, I am an Arsenal supporter.
It’s all about having fun on your bike!
Checking over iPlayer I came across this odd 1 hour compilation of of vintage BFI bike footage, from a slowed-down old time version of ‘how it’s made’ to dramatic reenactments of bike-related memories. Apart from some ropey music there’s plenty of good/funny footage in here if you fancy (click the image to watch). Now I’m going to check the lance armstrong doc…
