The Legolas name is owned by the family of the author of Lord of the Rings. They don't allow Rivendell to promote bikes with names taken from LotR. That's part of the reason you don't see Legolas, Bombadil or Quickbeam anywhere prominent in Riv communication.
This bike was not replaced in the Riv lineup. The Legolas is a pure cyclocross racing bike. There is no cyclocross racing bike in the normal Rivendell lineup. I think of this bike as being Mark A's bike. Mark A is a cyclocross racer, and this is his bike, in my mind. Mark was really happy that I got one, and that I'm going to use it for stripped down short fast dirt rides, like a cyclocross race. It could be a gravel racer as well, but it's a race bike. It is not an all rounder. It is not a country bike. It is not a touring bike. It's a racing bike. Bill On Thursday, April 12, 2018 at 8:10:53 AM UTC-7, tc wrote: > > Gosh that’s nice.
