    Rivendell might have taken pictures of it built up, before they sold it to the owner.
    Also notice the location of the bike is in Walnut Creek, CA- exactly where Rivendell headquaters is.
    Perhaps Rivendell themselves are selling this one?- or one of their employees there in Walnut Creek?

    Thanks Lisa and Veronica. You are giving me the info I need. I did the Rivendell pbh test and a 54 is the size I need. It would be the TT length that would do me in. I guess it's not like I'm stuck with it either. There are NONE of these for sale anywhere that I can find. I could certainly sell it or, like you said, return it.

    tick tick tick as the ebay clock runs down.

    I don't think they are the stock photos. But I did wonder if it was a Riv employee selling it.

    Yep, that's even better. You gotta just beat the guy who's going for 2,225.

    That auction had nearly 4 hours to go. Restrain yourself until the last 3 minutes. Don't drive the bid up this early in the auction.

    I just wanted to see if somehow that other bidder had stopped at $1750. Then I was going to think about it. That bid was just a toe in the water kind of thing. I really think that if I'm going to spend that much, I'll just spend a little more and get a bike I have 1) tested and 2) is a color I like. I'm sort of tired of compromising because of cost. I don't think I'll do it here. I think I'll just make a pilgrimage to a shop that has some Rivendells and take a "look see" at them. There's one in Nashville.

    As for college...that's where this funding is coming from! I paid for last semester and my son just couldn't seem to get out of bed to get to his Trig class, and then he missed some of his engineering courses, and so his grades were awful. I told him he would be paying for this semester, since I teach summer school to fund this stuff, and he could just see how much it cost. Needless to say, his grades AND attitude have improved since he has to work to pay for it. THEN he finds a job where they promise to pay for his schooling if he signs a contract that he will be an engineer for them when he graduates, and works for the next year first. (And he loves working for them) That kid will always come out smelling like a rose, no matter what!

    I've got one like that too Claudia. After 3 years, we quit paying for him to fool around. He ended up joining the Army National Guard so they would pay. Loves the guard and ended up working full time at thelocal military base and makes good money with a good federal retirement. He says "I may not be rich, but I love what I do".

    How old are your boys?

    Well I admire you for your logic and your self-control!
    Ai....now I have to calm down from my vicarious excitement over your new Rambouillet!
    Whew.



    So let's see what it goes for in the end- I bet it goes for more than $2,225!

    Lisa, Actually, it's not so much self control, but ever since you put up the pic of your dh's bike, I have wanted a green one. If I want a green one, then I'm going to GET a green one! I'm not even a green person, but like I said. If I have to pay extra I will. I'm not compromising on this, even though I'll probably drive a neon forever because I don't care about the car. (It has a hitch on it, though, so the bikes are easily transported).

    Sandra, I have two boys, 23 and 20. The oldest is in the Navy and will continue Art school when he gets out. Do you think that perhaps we were twins separated at birth? We seem to have a lot in common...

    Love the quote. That's all I ever wanted for my kids. I feel the same. I'm not rich, I'm a teacher, but I get up every morning wanting to go to work. Retirement? I can, but I'm not even considering it right now.
