Here is my new (to me) 62 cm Rivendell Quickbeam. The bike was originally from one of the two runs of Orange Quickbeams. The previous owner had the frame stripped of paint and carefully sanded prior to having the clear powder coat applied. The decals are the only thing missing. Though I may think about that for a while; the glint of steel tubing under the clear finish is stunning. I built the bike up to be my commuter and number one all-round bike. It is the quietest bike I've ever ridden. I love the simplicity of the single speed drive train and the "work with what you have" way of riding where shifting gears is something not taken lightly.
