Hi, Jim.

Here's my Rivendell Bicycle Works Custom Protovelo, single-maker frame and fork by Mark Nobilette in raw clear powder coat (RCP). 62cm frame, 650B wheels, cantilever brakes. An absolute joy to ride. Albatross Bars, friction shifting, freewheel, and high profile cantilevers make for so much fun around town and hopefully for touring.

Details (my first build):
Phil Wood Riv Hub, IRD 7sp freewheel Col de la Vie 650b
Sugino XD2 Triple
MKS sneaker pedals
Silver friction shifters
Tektro mountain levers
Nitto Albatross handlebars

San Diego, Calif.
