    I believe they're the exact same thing, with the company that makes them having changed names along the way.

    They may have transitioned over to head badges without a country of origin to allow them the freedom to use them on bikes made wherever, but it's not a universal indicator that the bike isn't...

    Regarding Fuji headbadges... I've noticed that there seem to be two distinct types. One relatively wide, with "Made in Japan" text on the bottom, and the Fuji text centered. The other design is...

    Hopefully... Unfortunately, dealing with bike shop staff younger than your bike can be a bit of a mixed bag.

    "Square taper" is the basic shape of the axle that goes through the crank arms. If...

    Whichever route you end up going, one odd thing to remember with the Sugino Mighty Competition crankset is that it uses an ISO taper instead of a JIS taper. You can find sealed cartridge BB's in...

    Scott Superbrake Pads??

    I've got an older set that appear to be the same as what Yokuzuna is selling on their website at present. It looks like the pads should be removable / replaceable, although I'm hesitant to...

    Other than the writing on the calipers, I think they're identical. Mine are the earlier version with "MODOLO" and "INTERN.PAT." stamped into the arms.

    They're the set that had the original red anodizing really horribly and unevenly faded. Sort of sunburned looking...

  11. Unsticking a frozen Modolo Pro brake adjuster

    I'm in the process of cleaning up a set of Modolo Professional brakes that I scored from fleabay for a nice price. So far, so good, except the barrel adjusters seem to be absolutely frozen. I've...

    The Giro Reverb might be one option, at least it's not as jarringly anachronistic from a distance as some of the other options out there.

    That's exactly what I've done for the time being. I found a "Hupel Rider", the stock seatpost for my Fuji Pro after about a year of hunting at more or less the same time I found a reasonably...

    A little bit of both. A traditional plastic shell type - one of the Mexican Unicanitor [clones?].

    I can't help but picture you locking the bike to yourself as you go into a store.
  16. Slightly wide-railed saddles on Campagnolo 2-bolt posts?

    I've got a new saddle which has rails that are a couple of millimeters wider than the standard. On some seatposts, it isn't really a problem: pinch the rails a bit, clamp and go. However on the...

    It's now going to take some serious effort on my part not to mentally assign the voice actor from those Dos Equis commercials to you when reading your posts.

    I wasn't around for the crit scene in the 1970's, and don't have first hand experience with what was in vogue then. (I didn't learn to ride a bike until 1980-1981.) The early Fuji Professionals...

    The steel lowers are unmarked, so I'm not sure. (The only marking on the alloy one is a lone "M".)

  23. Help IDing an odd lower clamp on a Campy clone seatpost??

    I just received a fairly obscure Campagnolo-clone seatpost in the mail that I've been hunting for: a Hupel Rider. More Z's than a room full of narcoleptics, but the sort of near-unobtainium that...
