When I bought my Atlantis in 2003, I had never seen a Rivendell, let alone 
ridden one.  However, the bike got an excellent review from John Schubert 
in Adventure Cycling's magazine.  The jist of the article was that if you 
wanted a well thought, perfectly serviceable touring bike that was 
available with decent components, this was it.  The first time I saw a 
Rivendell was when the big box arrived on my porch & I unpacked my 
Atlantis.  In less than an hour I was on the road, and recall thinking 
"this is what a bike should feel like."  14 years later I still feel the 
same way.

BTW, Rivendell does an excellent job on the parts selection.  They've got 
the experience to know what works together & what doesn't, saving you tons 
of headaches.  I would just go with the flow & enjoy the ride.
