My esteemed first Rivendell- a "cheap" one instead of the fancier Toyo/Waterford ones- has been sold, at least parts of it. I sold the frame, fork, headset (ChrisKing), BB (Shimano), brakes (Tektro Silver) and stem (Nitto), keeping the wheels and drivetrain, along with the Noodle. I'm sad to see it go, but the oversized QB forever spoiled me on large frames with comfy, laid-out positioning. Au revoir Sr. Bleriot!
650b is not dead upon me, though. I have more plans for this enigmatic size. At my height, this tire/wheel size makes perfect sense, so I'll keep trying.
