I got it a few years ago specifically because a friend told me he was interesting in getting into road biking. I saw it and thought it would be perfect for my friend. He never bit - I told him about it over delicious Korean food one night…Continue

This is my new bike! It's en route to me now. It's a Rivendell Bleriot. I predict many fun times to come with it. Rivendell is a company founded
by Grant Peterson, of Bridgestone fame. This Bleriot is a relaxed townie
style bike. It's agile and has a 10 gear cassette with 3 sprockets in
front, for a total of 30 speeds!
