Default Kuma Bicycle Company


You're the builder?
Why did you spell out 'ku ma' in kana rather than using the
kanji?

I am new at this posting in the group. Been a lurker but not much of a poster.

About the spelling. I am not an expert in Japanese. I love the culture, and we named the company after our dog, Kuma - and a Japanese friend of mine said: Kuma? Like a bear? I said, yes! Because he's black and has a white spot on his chest. So then she wrote it in Japanese on a piece of paper for me..

Yes, I am the builder.

Don't worry, it won't be long before someone that can't tighten a headset tells you that you don't know what you're doing.
