Rivendell Atlantis touring bike, 53cm, excellent used condition



You’re looking at my beloved Rivendell Atlantis touring/do-anything bike.  This is a size 53cm bike, and the full geometry is below. I spared no expense when I had Rivendell build this up – yes, it used to be built in their home port of Walnut Creek, has strong Rich-built wheels with Phil Wood hubs. The frame itself used to be manufactured by Waterford in Wisconsin.  Take a look at the list of parts below and you can see what I mean. And check out the photos, which blow their own horns the parts on the bike, plus the beautiful paint job with cream accents.  Underneath the Lizard Skins bar wrap is the original Riv-wrapped twine and blue cloth tape.

This bike rides like a dream, and is in excellent barely-used condition. There’s a small area on each front fork where the paint used to be nicked by a front rack.  These areas have been painted over and there is not any rust or frame damage. Once you put racks back on, the spots are covered up. The last two photos show these minimal nicks. This bike used to be ridden by a small female and used to be never crashed. I have loved this bike, and it needs to go to you, who will take it to interesting and adventurous places. I might add that the cost of a new bike outfitted this way is about twice the listing amount, and you can wait 6 to 9 months to get it from Rivendell.
