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 All Rounder
Rivendell Cyclocross (not the Legolas)
Rivendell Custom (true custom order)
Rivendell A. Homer Hilsen
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!
January 6th, 2009 at 8:38 am 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.
January 6th, 2009 at 7:02 pm I was under the impression that the Bleriot came well before the Legolas. Aside from that, your list matches my (feeble) recollection.
