    Default Rivendell Documentary

    Bill Strickland tweeted this video about an hour ago .. I just watched it over lunch and it's well worth 30 minutes of your time.

    Filmed by Jay Ritchey, Rivendell People features Rivendell's employees and makes you appreciate small, hardworking businesses and the good people behind them.

    Thanks for posting. It's great that Grant points out what it exceptional about each and every employee. First class organization.
    fwiw the box packing in no joke - I am in awe of the attention to detail there.

    P-Bob was/is the best bike packer I ever have seen. Current guy Keven Mowen is a heckuva' 'cross racer.

    Great video, and great concept. As a guy who has been lucky enough to have a great boss or two, it's fun to see what can happen when good people are encouraged to do their thing.

    Will watch later... Grant sent me a signed copy of Just Ride just because I asked and is legendary around here for taking care of his peeps. The book isn't great, but he's definitely a cool (retro- grouch) dude.

    Great documentary for a great product. I owned a rivendell atlantis at one point when I thought I was going to be a commuter.. unfortunately that never really materialized but it was a great bike.

    Even though their bikes don't really speak to me, Rivendell looks like a great place to work.

    Every owner and manager of a LBS should watch this video. I want to order a bunch of stuff from Riv just to see how it gets boxed, amazing!

    What a great video. Its refreshing to hear people say nice things about where they work. I am used to hearing the opposite.
    When I got my Rambouillet frame a few years ago I definitely noticed how well it was packed.

    Really enjoyed it too.

    Where's Big John?
    Grant's bikes are breeding like rabbits: one spotted today, one yesterday.
    Riding the sidewalk on Ygnacio - hate that street.
    Lesnik with a tensiometer makes me happy.
    Lesnik on a Big Dummy also.
    Need to take the bike up there for an S24O soon.
