Sorry didn't know what else to call these, but does anyone know who makes the japanese straight handle bars with the spherical (I guess dildo like) ends. I did have a link to the website of the people who make these, but can't find it, I'd really appreciate any links anyone could post either to the manufacturer or a japanese seller, my brothers going to Japan at the end of March and I'm going to ask him to bring some back. Thanks.

'Metallico Tsuchinoko' apparently, if that helps.

Yeh, I saw the njsframes blog, but my guess is as he's aiming to supply people overseas he's not the most competetively priced and it looks like he's only got them in stainless steel. As I said, I have previously tracked down the website of the people who make these, but can't now lay my hands on it. The plan was to find out who makes them and see how much they'd charge for 5-10, if they'd sell them to me, then my brother could bring them back. I did google "Metallico Tsuchinoko" but drew a blank. Does anyone have a link to the infamous pink bike on velospace, cos I think I may have originally tracked them down from something on that page. Again, thanks. If I can find the people who make them and they'e willing to sell to me direct, I'll post here and people can let me know if they're interested.

damn, I thought this was some crazy new venture.

Typical Conversation:
Customer: "I've never been to one of these before, can you suggest a good 'un?"
Barkeep: " Well, we have this try before you buy system, basically test it out on your nose and if you sneeze you've found your dildo"
Customer: "I have to say I'm particularly interested in the 1978 Californian"
Barkeep: " Yes, that was a particularly fine year, though we're running low. How does a 1920's Parisian sound"
Etc Etc

Don't know if they have a 1920's Parisian, but what you're describing sounds just like Sh!

i thought that guy's prices were fair, seeing how much machining would be involved. i doubt he will tell you, as you would cut his lunch. the pink one was powdercoated.

smeear, you were a bit too quick for my liking with responses :p

Maybe I'm just being cheap today, but while $85 doesn't seem extortionate, nether does it seem particularly competetive, not if you're buying them locally in Japan, rather than having them shipped. I'm was also pretty sure these were available anodized in a variety of different colours, though you're now making me me think I might have been wrong about this and that they were powder-coated instead.

Nope. I too am fairly sure I remember them coming anodized somewhere.
Unless the insanity is contagious, or the vision communal.
Neither of which bode well for this fair isle.

he's positively grinnin' his swarthy ass off.

he looks smugly proud of his "Dude" tat.

and so he should, it's a stinker

would have been better if he couldn't take the pain anymore and got as far as "DUD"

the pink one on the blog is definately powder coated. the bars are the price of most nitto's and seems to one of a couple selling them. so fair play, market forces.

Yeah, I mean if people will pay 50 for a white tyre.. $80 for some actual metal pipe seems like a frickin' bargain!

shit, i read at top that they are stainless steel, then that's a very fair price and it's very hard to work with, heavy, but will not rust ;)
