We've teamed up with Spin LDN and tokyobike to give one lucky Cycleschemer a very special prize - a brand new limited edition singlespeed tokyobike worth £620 with 10 runners-up bagging a pair of free tickets to the show.
tokyobike is a small, independent bicycle company founded in 2002 in the quiet Tokyo suburb of Yanaka. The name was derived from the design of the bikes. In the same way the mountain bike was designed for the mountains so tokyobike was designed for Tokyo.
Based on the concept of ‘Tokyo Slow’ the bikes are designed to be light to ride with an emphasis on comfort over speed. The bike is simply a way to enjoy your city, as much about the journey as the destination. To find out more you can follow tokyobike on Twitter @tokyobikeUK
