Umamen is the web name of an enigmatic Japanese person whose Flikr photostream indicates that he:

  • makes the most incredible sculptures from Lego. My personal favourite is the model of Madness from the cover of One Step Beyond...
  • is fascinated by Star Wars and that wacky Japanese sci-fi tradition
  • has two rather beautiful bikes -a Kestrel 500SCi (you’ll remember the one with no seat tube) fitted with Campagnolo Chorus and a Kuota Ksano fitted with Campagnolo Record 11 speed
  • enjoys a cycle tour up Mount Fuji
  • likes his food.

In reply to my inane questions he also volunteered that:

  • he lives in Tokyo
  • the first road bike he ever owned was a Bianchi Alloro fitted with Campagnolo Triomphe
  • the first Campagnolo Record derailleur that he ever owned was probably a 9 speed and was fitted to a 1996 Pinarello Paris (as used by Team Telekom)
  • He is a climber rather than a sprinter.

Hats off!
