H PLUS Super Market specials.....

click to enlarge.
I am surprised at H Plus reluctance to release interesting finishes.....I guess this is a
gap in the market that Velocity will fill with the B43 being released soon.

In the mean time, I took it upon myself to re finish some H Plus rims.....
Black w/rainbow metal flake, Silver metallic w/clear raspberry over the top, and
a polished rim, basically an un-anodized H Plus, on loan from Ocean Cycle Factory for
this photo.

Straight fork and straight stem!!

This is a very unusual combination, that was put together at Ocean Cycle Factory/NJS Supermarket last week...
Takamatsu Kenji fork, long, straight with no rake. Nagasawa lugs, hand made by an NJS frame
builder. It is very very twitchy and odd to ride, but allows super tight turns and barspinning a 700c front wheel.
When combined with the rare Nitto Zero Stem, the bar can spin very freely, with no centrifugal 'wobble' is very strange to ride, but is working quite well for this customer!
