Gallery: Michael’s Rivendell Atlantis

I’ve attached pictures of my Rivendell Atlantis, dubbed Aubrey. I got Aubrey originally with the idea of doing some back-country touring, and while I haven’t taken the time to do that yet, exactly, in the interim she’s worked just fine as a workhorse. With front and rear racks, and two pairs of Berthoud’s most capacious panniers, I can haul more groceries than some small cars. A great bike, beautiful to look at, and a joy to ride. I’ve currently got her outfitted with a full M900 kit, which I have to believe epitomizes Grant Peterson’s ideal component group. —Michael

    What kind of fenders are those? I just bought an atlantis from my friend, it rides like a dream.

    Great pics.

    The Atlantis, in this color, in this size (looks like 60cm, my size) is as fine a bike as I could ever ask for.

  • Michael says:

    The fenders are Full Wood, from Portland’s River City Bicycles. The frame size is 64 cm. Thanks for the compliments everyone!
