Arrow Bicycles

Founded in 1972 by Jinbei Yamada, Arrow Bicycles has cornered the market with its clean designs and precision craftsmanship. Yamada has resisted the temptation to offer too many styles and instead encourages customers to choose color, frame and accessories. As a result, every bicycle that rolls out of his Tokyo atelier is bespoke but still instantly recognizable as an Arrow. So far, I've resisted packing one into the hold of a 747, but I don't think I'll be able to pass up the deep chocolate brown model with its stand-up two-wheel companion wagon on the back.
