Rivendell Revamp

click here to go to the Rivendell Bicycle Works

I’m a little late on the update here, but Rivendell Bicycle Works from the USA have finally completed their revamp of their site. It looks really, really good. What I particularly like is the breakout box that comes up when a product in the shop is clicked. Then you can ‘look at it’, ‘read about it’ or ‘see related products’ – really simple but very effective.

I also love the Bike Camping section. You know that they’re not going to sell you anything crappy at Rivendell, they totally believe in all the products or they wouldn’t sell them. Integrity is the watchword here. There is a nice recent interview with Rivendell founder Grant Peterson here at Momentum magazine, it’s worth a read. Grant and Rivendell are all about just riding your bikes and having fun, although they’re pretty serious about bike set-up and geometry, passionate in fact. I recommend buying a Rivendell membership, not least because you’ll help keep them going (and if you’re passionate about bikes you’ll be sorry if they stop trading, you don’t know it yet but you will) but also because you get copies of Grant’s nearly quartlerly magazine The Rivendell Reader (although at the time of writing Grant appears to be suffering from RSI so a new reader is a few months off). Get over to the Rivendell site now and have a good browse.
