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)

I knew NJ5 made clips/straps (Bell's has them) but this is the first I've seen of the crankset.

NJS or NJ5?

Is NJ5 a trademark made to look like NJS?

They've been out for at least a year, but know it is known wha they are!

And I don't really like the nj5 logo in my opinion either.
