Nitto – Japanese Bicycle Component Solutions

Nitto – Japanese Bicycle Component Solutions

Nitto have been around for a very long time, making exactly the component needed for a rebuild or an inventive solution. They have it!

It was Nitto’s handle bars first, out of all their products, that I feel in love with – I have about four bicycles with them on. The most recent, the heat treated B802AAF on this ’93 Orange Prestige. These added some much needed comfort (90’s MTB, Most Terrible Back) the handling and stability is improved and they look slamming! Stem is also Nitto by SimWorks, another exceptional Japanese company. Cables are Nissen by SimWorks too.

They have many products that remedy, not just beautiful bars.

Need to stop your bag falling onto the front wheel or don’t have a cable stop or mounts for supporting racks? Even modern clamp sizes. Supreme quality throughout, premium products that aren’t pricey and serve aesthetically too.
