don't know if you want these other pictures, but the Bike Friday
has a number of Rivendell parts and was built with the Riv philosophy
(is there one?) in mind.
stated life as a flat bar Pocket Lama which is their touring / light
duty off - road frame. I had them custom fabricate a the stem to
replicate the cockpit of my Rambouillet and sent them a 46cm Nitto
Noodle to cut in half and sleeve for packing in it's suitcase. The
brake levers are Dia-Comp 287 for V-type brakes. The shifters are
DA 9 speed mounted on Kelly Take-Offs. Thomson post with a Brooks
B-17. Nitto M-12 mini rack and Planet Bike fenders carefully installed
with even margins at the tires. The rear hub is a Sachs 3x7 internal
3 speed. The cassette is a 11-25 8 gear cluster with 9 speed spacers.
this in an effort to get 8 gears on a 7 speed hub so you can use
the 11 tooth high to account for the small wheels. That in conjunction
with a 53 tooth single ring on the NOS DA Crank gives a gear range
similar to a 700c wheel bike.
fitting on the left rear chainstay is an air hose fitting that attaches
to the female end on the trailer frame that converts the Samsonite
suitcase (or any other plastic box or even a piece of plywood for
a flatbed) to a trailer. The ride is super smooth and stable despite
the small wheels. The long stem and seat mast soak up the bumps
the wheels can't. I like to think that if the French constructeurs
built a folding randonneuring bike, this would be it....
in advance....Love your site. Sorry the pictures are bigger than
you wanted but I could not figure out how to downsize them...
