Their frames are very sought after from experienced Keirin riders and carry a high price.

Japanese NITTO does not produce a frame
But NITTO has produced a few frames of a folding bicycle at the past
NITTO produces a bars, stems and a carrier of a bicycle
NITTO produces authorization part (NJS) of Keirin now

No, I didn't say that Nitto makes frames. I said that Nitto makes products for primarily the Track and Keirin markets (ex. clips, bars, stems, etc). Gan Well, is the company that I said makes frames.

Nitto does make a frame fork combo. it comes in one color and one size only (grey and 55x55). i have seen one with my own eyes. they come with absolutely no decals attatched, but a decal sheet comes with them. they have the typical Hatta/Swan headset and bottom bracket like the ever-so-popular Nagasawa. There is a shop in Portland, Oregon called Bike Central that sells all three bikes (Nitto, Gan Well Pro, and Nagasawa). All bikes are NJS approved if that matters. i believe their website is: http://www.bike-central.com/shop.php it doesn't have photos of the frames, but you can contact them and get more info. they have a bunch of track stuff and are the ones that keep the friday night track events going at the velodrome. they are a good place, if not a bit expensive sometimes. they can also order an amazing amount of stuff.
