The kimono bike, specially designed with a low frame, has been developed in Japan to accommodate cyclists wearing a kimono.

A Kyoto-based company markets its Koto LX-20 bike to ladies in kimonos: its ultra-low frame allows the rider to mount and dismount easily, while the almost standing position minimises knee movement and therefore prevents creasing of the kimono. The kimono bike comes in blue, white or purple.
