Named after one of the greatest ancient Samurai warriors, CEEPHO. The company CEEPO was started by Nobuyuki (Joe) Tanaka in Aichi, Japan in 2003. Joe started racing in the sport of triathlon in 1990, but he wasnít satisfied with the common road bikes used in those days. So he decided to build his very own custom triathlon racing machine, completing his first aluminum model in 1993. By 2000 carbon fiber technology had become popular and affordable. And this is when Joe started his quest to build the ultimate triathlon-specific carbon bicyle. Through his endeavors, today CEEPO International is a huge success. They're Japanís leader in the triathlon bike frame market. CEEPO framesets are highly prized, and are trained and raced by triathletes at all levels. And their popularity and demand continues to grow steadily worldwide. CEEPO creates and builds sexy sleek triathlon super-bikes. And they just donít ride. They ride fast!!
