The Nitto RM-016 has been around for many decades and has come in and out of fashion several times, only to once again rise like a phoenix from the ashes and take its place on the top rung. The ultimate choice for cool and hip town bikes or retro bike resurrections.
Handmade in the same factory in Tokyo to the same exacting standards, the RM-016 doesn't disappoint. It starts its life a one flat piece of 6000 series aluminum. Next step is fitment of a 25.4 shim that is centered and glued to the middle of the bar. The bar is then custom bent into a moustache-like profile. Final touch is to polish the bars into the familiar Nitto satin finish. The bars fit 25.4 stems only and accept traditional road brake calipers. Loved and adored by any true lover of the bicycle and all retro-grouches.
