This year NAHBS was held in Hartford, CT just a few hours drive north of NYC. This was also the year that Kenji decided to ask Adam of Stanridge Cycles to pull off the impossible and had this insane one-of-a-kind, engineering-marvel, NAHBS showstopper built up. So we kinda-sorta-had to go.
An homage to 3Rensho, there are so many subtle (and not so subtle) NJS details from the paint, to the fluted seat post and my personal favorite, the seat stays. A nod to the past but clearly looking into the future, I'm casting my best in show vote.
Hit up @nyckenji for a detailed study and breakdown.
And yes, its LHD sporting an actual US Olympic crankset.
