  • NJS Bike Show at Encino Velodrome

    by Aram Goganian October 14, 2011 2 min read


    Predator Cycling will be helping out with a special event taking place at Encino Velodrome later this month.  The NJS Bike Show on October 23rd will be a track day for lovers of Japanese Keirin bikes.  There will be dozens of sparkly steel bikes on display, imported from Japan by collectors here in Southern California.  Prizes will be awarded to the nicest NJS bikes on display.  We'll also have a track riding session including some Keirin heats and other fun stuff.  NJS and non-NJS track bikes are welcome to join the track riding.  To top it off, a DJ will be supplying the tunes, there will be a selection of gear and t-shirts for sale and we'll have tacos on the grill so if you feel like coming just for the hang, you won't be let down.  All of the proceeds from this event will go to benefit the Encino Velodrome, a non-profit organization.  Check out the flyer further down the page!  

    What is NJS?

    Nihon Jitensha Shinkokai is the governing body which oversees the entire Japanese Keirin racing industry.  Because Keirin racing is a multi-billion dollar gambling market in Japan, they have extremely strict regulations (even more strict than UCI) on all the bikes and equipment used in the racing circuit.  To show that a bicycle is approved for Keirin racing, an NJS logo is stamped into each component from the steel frames right down to each of the 64 spokes.  The frames are handbuilt lugged steel and only a few companies are allowed to manufacture components for Keirin racing.  On top of that, most NJS frames and components are not available on the consumer market since they're built for the racers.  Because of that, anything with an NJS stamped is pretty rare and if it's rare then it's collectible -- and if it's collectible then you know someone is going to collect it.  That's what the NJS Bike Show is all about.
