3Rensho Update

Last May, I posted some pictures of a 3Rensho that I picked up on the cheap. Well, I've stripped the 50th anniversary parts off of it, given them a thorough cleaning, placed them neatly in their carrying case, and purchased new parts that I wouldn't be afraid to ride.

Here are some pictures of the updated bike, which I now use as my all-round road bike. I put the new Record threaded headset and Nitto stem adator on it. The bar and stem are Ritchey WCS, the drivetrain is 2010 SRAM Force, and the wheels are Easton EA90TTs. It's a 58 cm frame, and the bike now weighs 19.5 pounds. not bad for being 27 years old! It's a sweet ride. It was stiff by 1983 standards, but compared to modern carbon bikes, it rides like a dream. Still plenty stiff and nimble, but with the steal frame and fork, it handles bumps like a champ.

Anyway, thanks for reading, and here are some pictures.

Very well done.

A nice Regal would be a great saddle upgrade.

I bet you'll love those Eastons, they are one of the top racing wheels at that price point.
