Patience Rewarded

Suntour produced some of my favorite components in the 80s and 90s.  They worked very well, their high end bits were beautiful and their not-Shimano-ness appealed to the contrarian in me.  Their departure from the market was a dark time, but Urban Velo has let us know that Junzo Kawai, a former Suntour president, is making a go at the components market under the name SunXCD.  Their site shows a beautiful partial group that I would be happy to put on most any bicycle.  Can’t wait to see the parts in person.

Time to go watch the grass grow.  Better than looking at motorcycles.
