Are Nitto stems anodized?

Does anyone know if the Nitto Technomic Deluxe stems are anodized, or otherwise coated? I have the opportunity to buy one used, and I was just wondering if they can be polished without removing a...

That chart only gives the Campy equivalent, which is half way between either of Suntours options, unfortunately.

Suntour Superbe Pro Bottom Bracket Size

I have a Superbe Pro double crankset, year 1990, and I'm looking for an acceptable bottom bracket. I've found 2 different sizes, 109 and 112. I'm thinking the 109, but I don't want to guess. Also,...

That's funny. Talk about opposite ends of the spectrum! She was even nice enough to reply back to me to let me know that the bike was "already gone".

Are the Carlton fork decals new? I have a '75 SC in red, but those decals are long gone, as well as the seat tube one.

^^^ @Barrettscv, could you post a close up photo of the tread pattern of the Marathon Cross? I've never seen a set mounted on a rim before. I'm just curious, I use the regular Marathons, myself.

I was thinking about yellow, as well, but the yellow cable I could find was just too bright. I couldn't find a blue that dark, as well. White was the other choice that didn't look to out of place,...

Actually, all nipples, drive side/non drive side, front/rear, are 16mm. I would make an uneducated guess that they are too long. I've been searching for the negative aspects of this. I've...

I got the set for about 60% of what they would normally go for, not LBS or very local, and they weren't marked down because the rim was reversed. That being said, what's going to happen is the...
