The terrible news from Japan are not getting any better. Our thoughts are with the people who suffer, those who are displaced, and those who worry about their loved ones.
We are glad to report that our friends at I’s Bicycle in Kyoto are fine. Most of our other contacts and suppliers aren’t in the worst-affected zone, either, except Nitto, but they are are OK as well. Of course, we don’t expect business as usual any time soon, as our Japanese friends have more pressing concerns right now.
