Thanks for creating such a great site.

Here are a few pictures of my Rivendell A Homer Hilsen.

There was a small run of 55cm 700c frames last year, so I ordered one immediately; fits great. It's quick do-all bike. I really like the drive-train and plan to replicate it on another bike. The TA Pro 5 Vis cranks fit a range of chainrings so I set it up as a very wide range double (30T/46T). I mainly use the 46T ring like a 1x9 and sometimes shift over to the 30T for really big hills. The most recent addition was a set of MKS sneaker pedals. These pedals are terrific for my somewhat wide feet, love 'em.

Parts include:
Jack Brown Green tires on Mavic Open Sport Rims/XT Hubs, or sometimes Ritchey 40mm cross tires
SKS P45 fenders
Nitto Randonneur handlebars with diamond weave shellac'd cotton tape (silver and dark sky blue)
Tektro/Silver brakes
Selle An-Atomica saddle with a bit of lacing to shape the saddle
Mark's rack and Acorn boxy bag
Silver downtube shifters
LX low normal rear derailleur and FSA Gossamer front derailleur
Phil Wood BB 119 R+4 offset
TA Pro 5 Vis cranks with 46/30 chainrings
13-30 9 speed cassette
MKS sneaker pedals or sometimes Time ATAC clipless pedals
