    Favorite NJS Frame maker?

    Curious as to whats most loved right now back there? Seems like 3rensho will never die but i dont know whats going on there for sure.
    There are 40 different makes so i cant do a poll.

    Yahoo!'s auction site here is full of vivalos. Don't know whether that means they love 'em (and have a lot) or hate 'em (and are getting ride of them).

    Just been trawling FGG looking for my favourite submissions of 2006, there's one Nagasawa that's running away with it IMHO. I've never ridden a keirin bike, but I know his are my favourite to look at.

    I've only ever ridden my 3rensho and a friend's Bridgestone, so I guess I don't really have much upon which to form a decent opinion. That said, I'd buy another 3rensho in a minute and, were I to travel to Japan to get myself a custom, it'd be a Kiyo.

    Samson and 3Rensho are the frames for which I lust.

    Especially that yellow Samson frame someone posted awhile back with the chrome fork and rear triangle.

    Level is definitely a close third.

    so, 3rensho doesn't exist any more, but Makino-san, who used to build for Konno-san in the 3rensho shop, has his own brand now. If you're looking for a "new" 3rensho, you'll find Makinos are quite close.

    You gotta go with what you know: Levant and Kalavinka for me. Also a big fan of Level, BP, and Panasonic.

    Also Iribes, Kalavinka, Makino. Hell they're all so sweet. Reminton for the webbed lugs. Those are bananas.

    I love Reminton lugs. I love the Bomber Pro name. And I love the Gan Well Pro for being the first track bike I'd ever seen and made me stop and go, "Whoa...".

    RAP for me because he was the first one I met. I have met most in Tokyo or they know of me.

    My next trip I will be going to see Kiyo, Level( redoing my Level) , Makino (get some stuff done),RAP( get my custom and seeing a good friend), Kalavinka ( seeing what is new), Watanabe.

    S/F,
    CEYA!

    I've never ridden any NJS bike, so with absolutely no basis except that they're beautiful , I love Bridgestone/Anchor and Panasonic bikes. Now if I could only get one in 60 cm cheaply (both of which are probably nigh impossible), I'd be set.
