Rivendell Leo Roadini
First, a disclaimer. All of the "Expert Description" about the frame below is lifted in its entirety from the 2018 Rivendell Catalog. This document is one of the most amazing bike industry printed items I have ever seen (joining the 1993 and 1994 Bridgestone Catalogs. If you know what they are, you know what I mean. If you don't, find one and you'll know what I mean). Come by the shop to get yours. I guess we could send you one for free if you pay for postage.
Leo Roadini Expert Description
A Roadini feels and rides better than a $6,000 modern road bike, and costs about $3,500 to $4,000 less. Its longer chainstays make any descents smoother, so safer. The higher handlebar takes weight off your hands. It fits up to 35mm tires, for cushy rides on crappy roads, and fenders with 28s, for rain
The materials are top-notch, and the craftsmanship isas good or better than you'll see on 90 percent of the custom frames made in America The fork is stunning, from cream-detailed crown to cream dropout mohawks, and teh way the end of the chainstays tapers down to the face of the dropout is so neat! Sorry that we dont show that in this catalog.
The Roadini costs so little because it has fewer lugs than our other bikes, that's all. We can assemble it plain or fancy, stone-age, middle-aged or modern. It's a beautiful, comfortable, great-riding, all-weather, all-surface road bike, no matter
