RBW Model Timeline
Filed under: general, rivendelica
Posted by: The Cyclofiend @ 11:46 pm

I’ve pondered about this in a couple of places, but so far haven’t heard too much from people - Been trying to block out a rough order and timeline of Rivendell bicycle models. This is basically what I’ve come up with:

Rivendell Road (1st model, pre-ordered by folks as Rivendell Bicycle Works was created)
My recollection was that this one was a semi-custom/build tuned to order by Grant
Rivendell Road Standard
Rivendell Mountain/Expedition
Rivendell Longlow
Rivendell All Rounder
Rivendell Cyclocross (not the Legolas)
Heron Road
Heron Touring
Rivendell Rambouillet
Rivendell Atlantis
Rivendell Romulus/Redwood
Rivendell Custom (true custom order)
Rivendell Quickbeam
Rivendell Saluki
Rivendell Glorius/Wilbury
Rivendell Legolas
Rivendell Bleriot
Rivendell A. Homer Hilsen
Rivendell Bombadil
Rivendell Sam Hillborne
Rivendell Betty Foy

That’s pretty much all I can come up with - for some reason I’ve misplaced my CD of the first Rivendell Readers, so I can’t confirm from that right now. Any recollections would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I got the RR’s on CD for xmas this year and I think it was Road, All-Rounder, Mountain I know the longlow wasn’t mentioned until issue 6 or 7 of the RR and the All-Rounder was mentioned in 1 or 2.

    I was under the impression that the Bleriot came well before the Legolas. Aside from that, your list matches my (feeble) recollection.

    what about the canti-rom?
