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)

Non-Nitto NJS?

This just occured to me: I've never seen NJS bars or stems that weren't made by nitto. What gives?

i've wondered this for a long long time. bars? stems? saddles?

not to snake this thread... but to enhance it... has anyone ever seen an NJS stamped Superbe pro hub?? (Judah's got a 36h fixed/fixed... but it's sealed bearings, and it's not stamped...??)

SR, Suntour, and Shimano all used to make NJS stems, and SR (as mentioned before) made NJS bars.

I'd be kinda curious to see if we could come up with all of the manufacturers (not framemakers, as that has changed so much.)

bottom brackets: Campagnolo, Hatta, Shimano, Sugino, Suntour, (Tange?)
cranks: Campagnolo, Shimano, Sugino, Suntour
chainrings: Campagnolo, Shimano, Sugino, Suntour
chains: DID, HKK, Izumi, Campagnolo, Shimano
cogs: Campagnolo, Shimano, Suntour
headsets: Campagnolo, Hatta, Shimano, Sugino, Suntour, Tange
hubs: Campagnolo, Sansin (Sunshine), Shimano, Suntour, Suzue
pedals: Campagnolo, Kyokuto, MKS, Shimano, Suntour
seatposts: Campagnolo, Nitto, Shimano, SR, Sugino, Suntour
saddle: Fujita, Kashimax
stems: Nitto, Shimano, SR, Suntour
straps: Fujita, Kashimax, MKS, Toshi
rims: Araya, (?)

Any others I missed?

(edit: will update as others contribute)

Quite probably. I thought I saw someone refer to a "Mosquito 5-Gold" saddle once, as something distinct from a Kashimax 5-Gold.

I sold them a few years ago, But I had a pair of high flange, with cut outs like nuovo record, Suntour "Superbe" 36 hole hubs (I gather they were pre Superbe Pro). NJS stamped. they had gold stickers with that oval superbe logo running across the hub, and the njs dot underneath:

__________
(S U P E R B E)
(nJs)


They were mega, mega polished. They were very pretty but i bought c-records with the dough - which i love even though they might snap someday.
