On September 22, 2007 I rode BART from San Francisco to Walnut Creek to pick up my new Atlantis, and my third Rivendell. It is a great bike, and I really like the special equipment I had it rigged with. Mark and Rich did a great job on the build, and Grant personally wrapped and twined my kickstand before he let me take the bike home.

This bike will be my city-errand-light touring-long haul bike. I'll strip the racks off my Riv Canti-Rom down and use it for fast road rides. I'll remove the racks from my Quickbeam and use it for fun short rides and fire trails. Soon I will rack and fender the new Atlantis, add lights, maybe a basket.

Here's the build list as it was on delivery:
61 cm Atlantis frame, standard paint
Sugino XD2 170mm cranks, 46/36/24 ring set
IRD cassette 8 gear 12-32
Ultegra bar end shifters 8-speed kit
Paul Thumbies
Paul Neo Retro Silver front canti brakes
Paul Touring Silver rear canti brakes
Paul brake levers
Jitensha Nitto upright handlebar, slight back sweep
Ergon MP-1 performance grips
Brooks B-17, black
MKS touring lite pedals, no clips, straps, or cleats
Pletscher kickstand
