Dear Jim,

Thanks so much for the Cyclofiend site, and the RBW group. Here are photos of my 2009 57cm Rivendell Custom (Imron Mariner Blue Metallic #7446). My "Country Bike" and I spend our time roaming the Texas Hill Country, traveling as far as the mood takes us on a particular day. The bike fits perfectly, and rides like a dream, comfortable, smooth, and responsive. The bike is built up as follows.

Campy Centaur controls and drive train; Chris King headset; Nitto 9cm UI-2 stem; Nitto 44cm Soba handlebars; Cinelli cork handlebar tape; Thomson seat post; Selle San Marco Rolls saddle; Velo-Orange City pedals; Tektro R556 brakes; Velocity 32h Synergy rims; White Industries hub set; DT Swiss brass nipples and double-butted spokes; Salsa QR's; Rivendell Maxy Fasty tires. Gearing is via a 34/50 compact crank and 13/26 10-speed cassette.

Thanks again for a valuable resource for cyclists.
