    MMMM Burnt Orange Bikegasm!

  • Michaelniel says:

    Looks just about perfect to me!

  • Steve says:

    I’m hoping to save up for a Hillborne frame in the near future. Anyone know if carrying 3 classes worth of textbooks would be a problem?

  • Pete says:

    Looks just like mine, so of course I like it !

  • kfg says:

    Steve; if your 3 classes require you to carry enough books that they won’t fit in the front basket pictured, plus a Wald 570 rear basket, plus a frame bag, plus a backpack:

    It could be a problem.

    Another lovely Hillbourne build! What rear hub/cassette/derailleur are you using here?

  • Cullen says:

    The dimpled metal fenders are what make this bike a wonderful velocipede!

  • Maurice says:

    Beautiful! I route the gear cables under the bar tape like the brake cables shown. Looks cleaner.

  • Pete says:

    I also appreciate the sidepull brakes – “Sidepull Sams” seem to be a rare breed!
    @ Maurice. I do the same routing as you, and much prefer it, but a lot of Rivs I’ve seen have the flying whisker cables.

  • Emily says:

    Ooooooooooooh, so beautiful! The pictures made me groan out loud. Very classy build.
    Someday maybe I’ll be able to afford a Rivendell…
