The Collector from RAPHA on Vimeo.

his is pretty amazing. Ah Joo is a collector fron Singapore who has an incredible stable of steel racing bicycles, including everything from Colnago and Cinelli’s to Hetchins and vintage Richarc Sachs bicycles. Now I know what you’re thinking, “this guy probably never rides any of those”. Well you’re wrong, Ah Joo tries to ride as many of his bicycles as possible and is working up to regularly riding distances of 200-300k. “You should not avoid conditions and rain; hot sun, night or cold. You should still continue to ride, it makes you tougher. Why are you worried that your bike will get wet and dirty? you come back, clean your bike and it’s ready to ride again. To me worry doesn’t exist and the bike is actually meant for riding. That’s it.
