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!
