Whats Up Everyone!

My name is Carlos but usually go by Los Or Gordo by my friends and customers. I've been a bicycle mechanic for about 8 years in NYC. I know it doesn't sound like a long time but I'm only 25, but don't judge my mechanical ability by my age. LOL. Anyway, I ride a Leader 735TR built up with all dura ace, and a mercier Kilo TT as a beater. Recently i acquired a 3Rensho Pursuit frame from a friend and thats on the operating table as we speak. Well, Thats enough about hopefully I'll get to know some of you a bit more.

Hello Carlos, I hope we will see a lot of posting from you in the Bicycle Mechanics forum. Hey, what year is the San Rensho?

Welcome to BF!

I'll be posting on the mechanics threads. The 3rensho frame is from 97', nothing now but definitely an attention getter. It runs a standard 700c in the rear but the front is a 24", feels good on the back lol.

What size is it? I have tiny little bikes with the same wheel setup because I'm a short female person .

Case in point:



Yes, it does feel good on the back! I love this bike...

The Prestige there is a 48cm, and yes, it is a conversation piece. I would guess you are not just 5'0" tall .

Oh, let's see some photos of your rides when you have time .

This is my Leader frame, Used mostly on the street and light use on the track. In the pics it's set up for street but it's still my most tricked-out one. And I'm 5'11" lol
