I’m getting a new bike…and my first thought was try to get something similar to my last bike, so going with an aluminium frame…and i’ve seen a few (potentially a second hand Dodici or Cinelli). But for a similar price I could buy the components that i like and get an NJS frame, which would be different to any bike i’ve had in the past…and gives me another go at building a bike.
so was looking on ebay etc, and came across a bunch of NJS frames from Japan, price was ok, but wondering if anyone has ever ordered any frames from Japan and what the pitfalls are?
Or…are there local alternatives…for example, is a colossi (from Gear) that good? weight and build quality?
