Shinichi Konno

Bicycle Frame Builder

Shinichi comes from a prestigious family of bicycle framebuilders. His father, Hitoshi Konno, started Cherubim in 1965 and built bikes for the 1968 Olympics. Shinichi’s brothers built frames under the brands 3Rensho and Miyuki. Not only is Cherubim the only NJS certified builder, but Shinichi’s concept bikes also display an unrivaled level of creativity, craftsmanship and ingenuity.

His Speedmaster concept bike captivated the audience last year, and this year people were left speechless when they saw his retro- themed road bike.
