Rivendell Cheviot Build

by michelle bontrager


A beautifully lugged frame set combined with a classically designed component package makes for a bicycle meant for riding.  A beautiful bicycle isn't for "cruising" around town no this bicycle is built for daily riding; day or night, rain or shine, asphalt or gravel, there is no stopping the Cheviot.

SON rear light tucks nicely in the NITTO rear rack. Even fully loaded this German made light will shine brightly at night.

This Rivendell owner had certain ideas for his new bike build, of course we had a few suggestions that were well received!

This bicycle purchase wasn't made on a whim, every component piece was deliberated upon.  For sure this new machine will enjoy many miles with it's owner.
