Meccanico Giro NJS

Bought this bike in Autumn of 2013. Always wanted a NJS Keirin bike. Very light weight and stiff. If I ever get a chance to go to Japan, I will redo the bike and make it NJS approved in hopes of joining a Keirin school. Cannot change the bottom bracket, but it is doing me very well.

FSA Wing Pro (31.7/8, 420 mm)/ Deda Newton Ti (31.7/8, 120 mm)

Cane Creek SCR-5 levers, Tektro R350

With this bike it's great. No pedal strike n matter how low I get on a turn and I'm able to push bigger gears with ease. The only thing about it is not getting many revolutions as 165 or 167.5.

Thanks, homie. I dig that Aselolle. It doesn't look too aggressive.

So is it only the fixed cup that is stuck? I mean if you can service the bearings that's all you really need to do right?

Drive-side B.B. cup is stuck, but I am able to service and clean the rest of the B.B. Now I want to get Suntour Superbe cranks.

Try Sheldon Brown's method with his home made bearing cup tool. Worked for me on my Marinoni when it seemed Hercules couldn't get it off!

It seems exactly the same frame set. Decals are different, but same paint job and yellow in the lugs. Also, I dig your wheel set A LOT.

I'm falling in love with NJS as well, nice bike! I plan to get a wound up for my bike, threaded.

Thank you. It might be hard to find a threaded wound up fork for your wicked frame. If I remember correctly, there was a black threaded one on ebay.

Nice! Why can't you change the bottom bracket? Are you able to get one side out and overhaul it?

The drive side cup is stuck. Took it to my local bike shop and 3 guys could not get it off. I also tried liquid wrench to get it off and that didn't work.
