    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...

    ^^ Whoa, you're really out in the middle of nowhere! What was your route, where were you heading to/from? Looks spectacular!

    Nice. I'm going with the same setup for my '82 610. Have the hub, waiting to get the headlight, keeping my superflash out back. How's it working for ya?

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

    @DOS Thanks for the link, it didn't come up in my search. Good info.

    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".

    Yeah, I replied within a half hour after it was posted and didn't get it! That one went quick!

    I still have the frame, but it was one size too large. I found the right size...

    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 think that my initial judgement based on a lack of detail to the aesthetic was justified IN THIS INSTANCE.
    One thing gathered from this thread, other than my OCD preference of parts orientation,...

    I'd like to. How can I be sure it's anodized and not painted/powdercoated?

    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 see what you're saying, looking at another wheel installed on a bike and comparing the two. After reading up on it a little more, it makes sense. I also understand it's not a safety or longevity...

    Do you mean weight wise?
    I figure for about $80 more than what I paid for this set, I could have a set built by an experienced wheel builder, which was what I was going to do, before a friend told...

    Thanks for pointing that out. I think that's the most productive observation yet. I'm not a wheelbuilder, though, but I did notice at least one thing that didn't match my other wheels.
    Is the...

    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...

    I call it attention to detail.
    I wouldn't want to return to a shop that doesn't care about that.
    I think it's sloppy craftsmanship.

    By the way, I have six other wheelsets, and they are all...
  25. Bought a wheel with the sticker orientation backwards, what to do?

    So I bought a wheelset for a really good price, but I noticed that the rim to hub orientation is reversed for the rear wheel. For the front wheel, the rim sticker is readable from the drive side,...
