Nitto65...


Finally found a 65 that was under 100mm. Preferably i wanted a 70mm, but im thinking that a 10mm difference isnt really that big. The lines on this stem are just beautiful. Its funny how people say "they dont make em like they used to", and its so true. Im not sure why Nitto doesnt re-produce these, as i think its one of the best looking threaded stems out there. To note, i believe the 70mm come in a 25.4 clamp diameter. Since this is a 26.0, luckily i had a shim laying around.

This Sunday ill be going to a friends shop to blingbling the shit outta this. Should be interesting as it will be the first time ill be doing it. For those who dont know what im talking about (which is probably all of u), ill snap some pics and hopefully a turorial on how to bring out the shine on your metal parts.

一週間前ぐらいに届いた日東の65ステム。
まさき君見てるかな?!?笑
やっと手に入った。本当は70mmが理想だったけど、80mmで妥協。
ま・・10mmってそんなに変わんないしと思って、思わず落札した。
ハンドルも決まってて、今週の日曜日に近状のペデストリアンにお邪魔して、先輩の柿澤さんに「みがき」を教えていただくことになった。
ちょっと楽しみだね~今回、3台目はブリンブリンにするから、この「みがき」という技術がかなり重要になってくると思う。
相変わらずパシャパシャ撮るので、近日アップしまーす。
