Must have been the alloy shell. Do you think the steel shell would have held up better?

I might be in the minority but the nankai is the best, most reliable, smoothest hub when greased and properly adjusted.

Just wondering what the minimum clearance would be for a gyro - I only have one 1/4"spacer under my stem, cut down steerer to match and the height feels just right.. have I got no chance?

Old post but I always install a gyro from the rear caliper to the lever. Let it rest on the lower tabs and adjust the upper cable to that height.  Gap depends on the upper  cable

Revig thats a good idea!

I was looking at the Spots section on this site, Akihabara station is the one. I've seen a couple of nice spots but too many people everywhere! Night sessions only. Thanks flatnatics.

Just wanted to update after riding with the s&m stem for the past month: this stem kicks ass. The handlebars have not moved at all, either forward/backward or side/side and I have had some pretty hard crashes. This stem has way better clamping power then any other stem I've ever used. S&m kicks ass.

Great to hear. That has been my experience as well with my stem too. Good quality part

Might be lucky to find someone riding Shinjuku Chuo park.
I think thereís night sessions at Akihabara station but not sure. (Think thatís the station).
Also have a look at Komazawa koen. Near the skate park.
Thereís other places too but donít know the names. Hope that helps.
