I’ve been following Blue Lug‘s blog for a year or so now with general wonderment at everything they do. Great shop, great stock, great blog, great staff, great aesthetic.
From the organic pin board background on their homepage to their on-point Blue Lug Original products, they are creating a new model for independent bike shops that moves beyond just fixing punctures to designing their own products. I first found the shop as they were a stockist of Fredrik Packers, who make one of my favourite bags the Professor Pack. In the time I’ve been following them they have gone on to design and manufacture, in Japan, their own range of bags, accessories and clothing.
They stock everything you’ve ever wanted down to everything you could possibly need.
Yep, they ship to the UK.
