    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.
