Owner Max Lewis describes his vision for the store,
“The whole experience of shopping at Kinoko should be pleasurable, you can admire the beautiful products on offer, enjoy a coffee and have a chat with our staff. We offer all the keen, stylish cyclist craves but without being elitist or taking ourselves too seriously – Kinoko is simply a very well thought out space with really great products.”
Store manager, Nick Frendo is in high spirits about his move to Kinoko,“Both Max and I share the same love of custom bikes as well as a desire to create something fresh and new, rather than follow in anyone else’s footsteps. The thought of being in such a amazing location, plus the fact we’ve got so many new brands in store make this such an exciting venture.” “
