After work I took the Yamanote line together with my coworker Miyagi to Ueno, where he showed me some bike shops.
The new Cannondale Caad 10 frame, 2014 model.
You might remember I saw the 2013 model of Cannondale Caad 10 in Okutama (my own Caad 10 is a 2012):
I wanted to get this bell, but then it hit me that someone stole my last bell – unscrewed it from my bike, a totally regular bell. Another time someone had loosened the screws on my front wheel, just “for fun”. So I don’t think this looker would last long on the hard streets of Neukölln. I bought a detachable back light instead. (Of course I’m talking about my regular bike now, not the road bike, which lives in my apartment.)
Then we strolled to Akihabara, where Miyagi, who is an engineer, showed me some small electronics stores. Dinner and beer at Tendon Tenya.
This is Raspberry Pi! I wanted to get one of those some months ago, but decided I had enough hobbies. Maybe some other time.
We ended up at Yodobashi Akiba.
Many men flocked around the 3D printers.
Here’s a more rough 3D printer that we found in one of the smaller stores. Some of the printed items (or well, one of them) also differ a bit from those in Yodobashi.
