Grant Peterson's Rivendell created the beautiful lug work on this nearly pristine example! This is a 57cm Rivendell Romulus from 2003. It's one of the special limited-edition Cantilever models. It is the ideal bike for touring, commuting, Brevets, randonneuring, fire roads, and light trail riding. With the cantilever brakes, it even makes a pretty good cyclocross bike!
The reason I am selling it is it is simply too small.

Rivendell stopped making these awhile ago because they were too expensive . Now, with the yen to dollar exchange rate, A Japanese-built Rivendell (like this one) costs over 2,000 for the frame, fork and headset only. This built up Riv is worth the ask all day! If you will make a reasonable offer, please do so!
