What would be the major advantage of a custom over a Rivendell? The only benefit I would see is if you wanted s bike that was different from Grant’s vision, perhaps a disc frame bike. Perhaps there is a perception a custom builder can truly design a unique bike for each individual body but I am guessing most still have a few templates for builds they tweak for each customer. I am guessing most people will fit the RIv from Waterford as well as any custom. When you buy an Atlqntis or AHH it takes as much time to build at Waterford as a one person custom without the full Rivendell team to talk through the build. You also don’t have years of tweaking designs for folks that go into the frame design. I am guessing I can can get it sized as well as any custom.
I would love a AHH or Atlantis from Taiwan but understand why Rivendell would maintain the premulium for both models. I doubt here is much quality difference. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "RBW Owners Bunch" group.
