Kimono Bike

From Kyoto the KOTO LX-20 is a bike particularly made to be anything but difficult to ride while wearing a kimono. It’s genuinely normal to see both Japanese sightseers, both men and ladies, wearing the customary Japanese Kimono around the old city of Kyoto. The main design principle behind the KOTO LX-20, also known as the Kimono bike, is that it has a bottom bar that is set very low which allows long and straight kimonos to not get in the way of the pedaling of one’s feet. It also is very retro in design and uses a very pop choice in color scheme which makes it a stylish and not weird choice for those who use it while not wearing a kimono. The bicycle is also getting praise as it is also perfect for the women who are required to wear skirts in the workplace as it allows them to ride a bike without the shame of having someone see their underwear.

The KOTO LX-20 sheds a cross-bar, additionally called a top tube, inside and out, and pushes the base bar down super-low to keep it off the beaten path of any long conventional robes you may crave wearing while pootling around town. One can order the KOTO LX-20 in three different yet stylish colors. The first is called the Oborozuki. The Oborozuki is the Japanese version of a light blue that is a little bit opaque. The second color would be the classic Yuugao. The Yuugao is the pure color of Japan and can be described as blindingly white. The last color that one can get the KOTO LX-20 is in the Komurasaki color. The Komurosaki color is Japan’s version of deep purple.
