2005 Rivendell Romulus Cantilever


Built up between Oct 2006-Feb 2007 as my randonneuring bike. The ride and fit is nice, comfortable and predictable. Tom Matchak built a new fork with 65mm rake and 37mm trail (removed all TCO -thanks Tom!). Dennis Bushnell added braze-ons for rear lights, 3rd downtube cage, BB cable runs and seat stay mounted pump and extra eyelets on dropouts, then repainted in silver. Ridden in PBP 2007 and will be used for 2010 brevet season. Designed by Rivendell and built by Toyo in Ozaka, Japan and is from a small batch of frames that came with cantis and not the usual sidepulls.
