Belleri or Belri?


It's spelled both ways on the packaging. I finally put the bars and stems into the store. The porteur bars cost $48 for a packaged pair or $35 for the ones that were stored bare and scratched. If you get the cheaper ones you can do a full wrap with cloth tape and shellac them.

We have three types of Belleri stems. Actually there is a fourth type that will go on the special's page. They cost from $20-$28.

We just got our first shipment of Nitto Technomic Deluxe stems. Those are the cold forged type with a nicer finish than a standard Technomic.

We will also be stocking Nitto Lugged stems in a nickel finish. So far we only have a few in 120mm size, but we hope more will be available. Our price will be $125.

Finally, we now stock the Sugino old logo XD500 cranksets. $99.

These are really neat. I hadn't seen this shape before.

I love the way that the Herse porteur and Gentleman bikes just had a few quick wraps of shellaced tape, instead of actual grips. To my knowledge that was his standard way of rigging a porteur. It's just so cigarette-dangling-outta-the-mouth Gallic. Definitely going to go for that look on my current city bike project.

Should I make them more expensive? ;<)

You should look into stocking the TA 110bcd chainrings. They're quite a bit nicer than the Sugino rings.

Prices here aren't "cheap", they are just right. Riv fluctuates from expensive to flat-out overpriced - just about anything on the Riv site can be had for significantly less from reputable, deserving e-tailers.

We charge what I think makes a fair profit for us, not what the "market will bear". In most cases that will give us a price advantage, but not always. For example, a store that stocked up on Brooks saddles before the last two price hikes could sell them for less than we could. But would they???
