Built up with all new cables from Sim Works x Nissen, IRD quick-release DT cable guides, an Arundel Dave-o carbon bottle cage and KCNC cage bolts. The Dura Ace 10spd kit is beautiful and works great. I know there is a cult following for the Grant Petersen (rivendell) era Bridgestones, and especially for the RB-1, but I am still surprised at how nice it rides. Exceeds all expectations I had for it. Where needed, brakes, derailleurs, cranksets, etc were disassembled and thoroughly cleaned, and re assembled with fresh grease/lube/loctite. Brand new chains, brand new cables...

Frame Size - 50
Seat Tube C-C - 482.5mm
Seat Tube C-T - 500mm
Top Tube C-C - 525mm

I'm 5'7" and have it set up for fast riding, it's good for me but I like slightly small(er) frames.

for $200 more I'll add a front end conversion (last picture) which will include a 1" Columbus Muscle fork, a 1" Chris King threadless headset either red or black, and a Thomson stem with a 26mm clamp for an easy swap while maintaining the sweet modolo bars on there now, 110mm or 120mm long.

the Wheeler I also just built and is available in my other ad.

price is net to me. buyer to cover any fees + shipping. Local collection in LA is an option too.

thanks for looking/reading.
