I Reken a 1×3 would work…

This Thanksgiving morning I decided to take my trusty Sette Reken Single Speed and convert it to a 1×3. I’ve had this project in mind for a few months and decided to execute it this morning while the family was still asleep.

First step was to get a cassette and remove all but three cogs. I left on the 17,20 and 23t cogs.

I also mounted a Shimano Deore rear derailleur. I like how it matched the frame…hehe

I used an Ultegra chain…cuz that’s how I roll.

I also grabbed a Shimano Alivio 8speed shifter that I had laying around.

I finished it off with some hot pink Jagwire shifter cables/housing. It goes great with the black!

Here’s the finished product. I plan on using this set up at the next Tour De Tryptophan, also known as 24 hours of Fullerton.
