Hi

I'm in Tokyo for the next couple of weeks and wanted to check with you all on a good source for Nitto drop handlebars and stem. Also any places which sell vintage lugged steel frames and parts for these? I've got a couple of vintage rides back home and am planning a new build.
Many thanks for the help!

Good shouts from Hat and Beard.

I's also add that for vintage frames, Cycle Paradise always has some interesting bits and pieces.

The addresses are in Japanese, but Google maps will be able to find them if you copy and paste. I would recommend Kyodo and Mitaka branches as the best. You can see the type of stuff they have on the webshop but best to go in and see what they have.

They also carry erratic stock of second hand Nitto componets.

Thank you folks, this is very helpful!
So I can't read or speak Japanese and the online translation services don't seem to be so spot on....so, can somebody tell me what the timings are like for the Blue Lug and which days are holidays?
Ditto for Cycly and Cypara....
thanks so much all, this is awesome info!

I'm unable to copy paste the japanese address in their website onto google maps as it's an image.
Standard utterly pathetic Japanese web design.

Velocraft = Weekdays 11am - 8pm, Saturdays 10am - 8pm (assume they consider Sunday a 'weekday' or opening times.) Closed Tuesday and Wednesday.

Located at Kichioji (go to Kichioji station, and go out the North Exit (look for the 北口 sign),

Map to exact location; I can not locate it on Google Maps, in reference to the map on the website, because again, utterly ridiculously sh*t Japanese map creation and a refusal to use modern international standards of internet mapping technology. Someone else might be able to help, but otherwise you are going to have to go for a wander, and see if you can bump into it, based on their crap map.

the people that can read this probably don't need it. Jeebus this is so not logical and it happens in most countries' websites. Why not just have a global icon with a refresh logo instead? BTW this is from a Swiss company's website. End of rant, I feel better.
