Welcome to 2017!

Happy New Year.

Thank you for the huge support from all of you last year. As we enter 2017, we promise to keep striving for realization of great dreams and materialization of projects that no one has even dreamed of. Let’s make it an awesome year together.

Quick notification on Sumo Roller

Dear Customer, we could not send emails to your account in reply to your inquiry. So here it goes:

Thank you for your inquiry. One sad news is, it was our April Fool’s day post that Sumo Rollers are on sale and in huge scale, and in reality there is only one prototype crafted just for the heck of it. There is a good news, though, which is that inquiries like this are pushing us to actually try to make this beast widely available. That shall not happen without better performance, so we are redesigning and researching. We’ll let you know any progress whenever that happens. Nothing would have happened without customers expressing committed interest just like you. Thank you very much.

Happy New Year! 2016!

Happy New Year!

Backyard-built prototypes and precision-made products.

The year characterized by a bunch of random secret craft is over. This new year will hopefully be a fun and busy one when these projects take actual shape and old projects are revised and revived.

One of the biggest news last year was Kazoo, our new team rider. This is going to be the first full year he’s with us, so you know there is a lot to look forward to.

Speaking of riding, I’m finally seeing improvements in the conditions of my injuries lingering for over a year. This year, I’m not going to miss too many opportunities to ride with y’all.

Thank you for all your support in the previous years and into the new one. We look forward to seeing all the great things that 2016 will bring to you and to us.

New pricing (w/o tax display)

We changed the price display on each item to MSRP w/o tax in line with the recent tax rate change. At the same time we revised pricing on some items. Price revisions include those with plus and minus, though very minor in any case. Please find details on each product page.

North Shore Products has moved

After sticking to the flat plains of Higashi-ku for over a decade, we made the very first move since foundation to the hilly, greener part of Sapporo, which is Kiyota-ku. Despite the momentary inconvenience with the phone line, packing and unpacking, putting things away and so forth, we hope and are sure that this move will benefit the whole world in the long run as it should enable us to carry out the business more efficiently and produce more cool bike stuff and whatnot.

The new address is:
2-jo 2-chome 22-4 Kitano, Kiyota-ku, Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan 004-0862
