September 22, 2007 I rode BART from San Francisco to Walnut Creek
to pick up my new Atlantis, and my third Rivendell. It is a great
bike, and I really like the special equipment I had it rigged with.
Mark and Rich did a great job on the build, and Grant personally
wrapped and twined my kickstand before he let me take the bike home.
bike will be my city-errand-light touring-long haul bike. I'll strip
the racks off my Riv Canti-Rom down and use it for fast road rides.
I'll remove the racks from my Quickbeam and use it for fun short
rides and fire trails. Soon I will rack and fender the new Atlantis,
add lights, maybe a basket.
