are some pictures of my Rivendell Romulus. Three of the photos are
from the bike's 'early days' and the fourth is from this past summer's
Oregon Bike Ride (OBR).
'early days' configuration of the bike is the stock Rivendell build
for the Romulus using Shimano long reach side pull brakes. These
images date from late 2005. This configuration is using 35 mm Honjo
fenders and 28 mm Riv Rolly Polly tires.
the OBR configuration the bike is using Riv Silver side-pull brakes,
no fenders, and 33.333... mm Riv Jack Brown tires (green label).
On front the bike has a Riv Marks Rack with a Little Loafer bag
- a perfect camera bag! In back is a Riv Nigel Smith Country Bag.
In this mode I think of the Romulus as being A. Homer Hilsen-ified.
I appreciate this bike for how it performs and for the versatility
of the design.
