I bought this frame last year from a BOBlist
member and built it up to be my new upright-bar citybike (so I could
put drops on the Rivvy - see
# 11 in this gallery).
frame is a 1986 Peugeot Canyon Express model. The wide, square fork
crown looks like it was forged by a blacksmith; the lugs are simple
and almost medieval in appearance. Even with Cr-MO tubing it's a
heavy bike, but SO comfortable set up this way that I ride it to
and from work at least 3 days a week. Built up with an assortment
of cheap and mostly used spare parts. Best upgrades: a Brooks B-67
saddle and cork grips. I use it to carry the heavier loads (usually
in bike buckets) and occasionally to tow a trailer.
admittedly inspired by the Rivendell Atlantis, a bike I test-rode
on my last visit to Rivendell and a frame I would love to own. The
Peugeot's geometry comes very close to that of the Atlantis (just
look at the tire clearance!) and is a delightful bike to ride around
