Keirin Components

Hello,

Just wondering if people on the forum have had any experience in purchasing used Keirin parts from Japan? I found this site http://njs-keirin.blogspot.com/ and was considering some purchases but wanted some opinions on whether it's advisable or not. Pretty much looking at cranks, chains, BB and cogs which have all seen use in races, what's the consensus?

Gabe is great - I just bought the Campagnolo Sheriff Star wheels he has listed. Shipping was fast and service was great.

I may actually end up purchasing a Keirin frame, what do people think about it for road use? Anybody ride a Panasonic, Vivalo, a 3rensho or any NJS frame on the road as an everyday commuter? Is it overkill?
