This is Vivian's Rivendell. It's a 51cm. built for short reach brakes. It's built up with stuff from my personal stash. Dura Ace levers and Suntour Superbe Pro calipers (the ones with the "hidden spring"). 1990 (or so) DA crankset w/Willow 48/38 rings and a Phil BB, Shimano A520 pedals. 1988 DA rear derailleur, Ultegra hubs/Open Pro silver rims w/Conti 700x25 tires. Simplex Retrofriction shifters, Noodle bars w/2 wraps of black cloth and shellac. Thomson no-offset post with Avocet "turbo" style saddle.

It's her favorite bike!

Cheers - Bob, Minnesota
