New Stem...

最近更新してなくて申し訳ないっす!
ちょっとだけプチ旅行(旅行じゃないけどw)で名古屋の方に行ってきました。
家を下見しに行って、ちょっと栄をブラブラしに行きました。

この前注文してたステムが届いた。
日東のパール8と言うモデルなんだけど、本当はパール7が欲しかったんだ。
今回は日東の復刻版で、シルバーしかだしてないみたい(ちなみに70mmは今回生産してないらしい)
仕方なく、80mmを購入した。

Sorry for the lack of updates but i was outta town for a couple days.
I visited Nagoya (the city in which ill be moving to) to just sorta peep things out.
As for bike news, my new stem came in the other day.
I ordered the Nitto Pearl 8, formerly a vintage stem made in the 1980s, but this time around only in the silver color. Lucky for me, i was looking for a silver stem, unlucky for me the shortest size they re-made (to my knowledge) was an 80mm. But whatever...here are some pics...

Nitto Pearl 8

このハンドルを閉めるボルトがめちゃくちゃ綺麗で・・たまらん・・
本当はNITTOのクリスタルフェローを欲しかったけど、値段が高くてこっちにしちゃった。
ネット通販で¥6,000ぐらいで買った。やすい!
これをブリンブリンしたいので、柿澤さんよろしくお願いします~!


今カラビンカに付けてあるPearl7の箱が右側、新しい復刻版のPearl8が左側。
右側の箱を見たらかなりオールドスクールを感じる。


For those who have followed my blog for a while, youd know i have a Nitto Pearl7 on my Kalavinka. That stem is vintage from the 1980s, and you can tell by looking at the packaging.
On the left is the recently purchased Pearl8, and on the right is the vintage Pearl7 packaging.
Old school...like Bones&Harmony old school...

the nitto deluxe is not sold in japan. it is categorized as a "foreign" model here. if they did, and in 50mm, trust me i wouldve bought it.
