Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

vintage njs bling

so, some stuff i've been working on came together tonight, and here are the results: njs sanshin (sunshine) hubs, njs sugino super-mighty cranks and chainring. they're going on the fuji.

(apologies for crowing about about this, but i'm super-happy, and nobody other than you guys would appreciate it.)

also, my lousy pics don't do the hubs justice; they are freakin' gorgeous.

some super mighty's are road cranks made for double rings so, no. my guess is the stamp would be on the inside around where the length is stamped.

I don't think those hubs are in the database, but the rims are. If you don't mind measuring and inputting the hubs, then spokecalc would be a quick solution.

Very nice looking stuff for the Fuji. Dolface, asn't that the bike that you were building with the Dura Ace 10 group, though? If so, where are those pieces going?

Nice stuff dolface.

I've got 1982 njs DA hubs, cranks, and BB. Maybe I'll get pics up eventually...
Only reason I don't have a headset is I don't have a frame to fit it in and I haven't found an early 80's seatpost.

I like sansin hubs - the rear hub on my mtb seems pretty indestructible, and it's nice and smooth too!

suck. sorry about that. let me know if you find anything. i ended up giving up and just using freaking open pro rims.

then again, the ugly hollogram on the rim matches the absurd hollogram on the hub, so, yeah.

Hopefully the hubs' bearings are smoother than the finish. Flat metallic's just never done it for me...

My eyes are registering a dull finish with lots of little scuffs. Polish = NOS C-Record.

Sanshin hubs are nice.

I've got an unused pair of Araya aero (the vintage name for V) rims. Are Araya rims a big deal?

If you're an NJS head, they probably are...
