Although Japan’s Tange International Co. has been through its share of ups and downs over a 90-year history, they still continue to manufacture high quality tubing, a credit to the management and products. Their range now includes a series of frame, branded Yasujiro, after the name of the company’s founder, Yasujiro Tange.
This is the prettiest of the three frames offered, appropriately named the Nudity. Both frame and forks are built from Tange Prestige and show off the anodizing caused by its construction and the fillets that hold it all together. This example was built up by the Bicycle Store in Paris, with a full complement of Tange’s stem, seat post and bars, with Araya rims, Suzue Pro Max hubs and a Sugino crankset.
