    How do you like those Schwalbe Kojaks? Is that a 32mm tire? Looks like Mr. Kojak could give Mr. Jack Brown a drubbing, if they happened to duel.
    The Kojaks are actually a 35c. I've never ridden a tire this fat, the largest being a 28c. These are pretty cushy and I'm really enjoying them. I run the front at about 85psi and the rear 90.

    This is from the first batch of Atlantii that Rivendell did.

    I sold my 1987 Bridgestone MB-1 frame (the one with the awesome Nitto drop bars) to cover the cost of the pre-order. I moved those eclectic components over to the Atlantis.

    John at Kenwood Cyclery (I believe they are now defunct) applied Framesaver, installed the bottom bracket and managed to find me the hammered Honjos. Sadly, I've sold the Honjo's and can't find this size anywhere. Anyone know a source for some wide ones like this?

    Some of you may remember my pictures being on the Rivendell Owner's Gallery when their website was in it's infancy.









    Just found the component list, so here's how it was built in the pics. It's still pretty close to this.

    Crank: Ritchey triple, 175mm
    BB: UN72
    Rear Wheel: Phil 36 hole/Mavic 261
    Front Wheel: Phil 36 hole/Mavic 261
    Fenders: Honjo hammered aluminum - still trying to get them "just right!"
    Tires: Specialized Fat Boy 1.9
    Stem: Nitto that I picked up in Japan. Unknown
    model, but very cool with a double binder.
    Handlebar: Specialized/WTB drop bars
    F. Der: SunTour XC9000
    R. Der: SunTour XC9000
    Shifters: SunTour bar-ends in friction
    Pedals: SunTour XC Compe
    Toe Clips/Straps: Specialized with Christophe leather straps
    Freewheel: Sachs
    Chain: Sachs
    Brake Levers: Dia Compe Royal Gran Compe, non aero
    with black hoods
    Brakes: Dia Compe 982
    Seatpost: SR MTE300
    Saddle: Brooks B66 Champion, black

    Here's my Quickbeam which used to be my office bike, before the Surly Pugsley took it's spot.

    Ahh, yeah! I remember this one from the old gallery! Very cool to see you are still riding it. I was also one of the initial deposits for that first batch of Atlantis frames. I ordered one that was way too small, otherwise I bet I'd still be commuting on it. Thanks for posting! I miss that old Rivendell Owners Gallery.

    Sweet bike and neat build :^) The customs have long been overshadowed by the various production models, nice to see one. My '99 is semi-custom, built for me, tubing picked for me, but standard geometry (GP thought it was fine).

    That looks pretty nice. Are those Dugasts 25s or 27s? Seems like there's plenty of clearance there ... That a 53 TT or so?

    55 c-t, 55 c-c, 90mm stem with 3cm of spacers. I know that's a lot of spacers but I'm really comfy on this. Might be swapping out to a 100mm stem though. As I ride more the 90 has been feeling a little short. Saddle height is 73.5cm.

    Tires are 27s with a ton of clearance. Used to ride Kojak 35c those fit really nicely.

    Very nice! I'm guessing that it was originally built for 26in wheels and you used the Paul Motolites to convert to 650B? How do you like the ride so far?

    I need to post photos of my current Rivendell 650B.

    Yes, that's exactly what I did with it.It rides great - rolls much better than the 26" wheels, just not as plush of a ride. It's more spirited.

    Post 'em up! I'd love to see some pics.

    Wow, that's been awhile. I still have it and will probably keep it until I die. Very little has changed on the build. It's just about perfect.

    Pretty awesome. I have always really liked the Superbe Pro stuff.

    This is my first post on this forum. Hello all.

    I have two Rivendell's. The first is a 1994 original made by Waterford. It has gone through three builds. The first build was mostly C-Record dated from 1990 with the first generation drop rear derailleur. The current build is with 8 speed Ergo handlebar shifters, newer crank, Nitto "Frog" seatpost, new Rivendell lugged stem, Nitto heat treated "Dream" bars, and a Rivendell Riders Brooks saddle. I have Campagnolo 7 speed freewheel hubs on Mavic GP4 rims with Clement Paris Roubaix tires.



    The second is a 2000 model, built by Joe Starch and painted by Joe Bell. The seat tube is the same length as the 1994 model, but the top tube is slightly shorter. I can feel the difference. I have a long torso and short legs for my height. This one is built with all Mavic components except for the bottom bracket which is a Phil Wood. I recently replaced the Nitto bars with Mavic Comte de Coucy. The rims are Mavic SSC with Paris Roubaix tires. I also have a set of Mavic Open 4 CD rimed wheels for it. The saddle is a Ideale Model 90, brown.
