Rivendell was formed as a direct-to-you business, which is the best way to sell speciality, high-end goods that are far off the mainstream and often require more expertise and passion than a typical bike shop can muster.
We don't want our bikes presented as charming throw-backs, yet that's how typical bike shop would present them. Like "Ha ha ahhhyesss, the good old days, gotta love 'em. Now let's get serious. May I interest you in something made of, say...carbon fiber?"
So we limit the number of dealers we have. We make sure they're well-informed, but always keep our fingers crossed. They are supposed to size you the same way we do. We vet them and do our best to keep them informed, but we don't control them. They are independent.
ou the most in person or on the phone. Or spread it around, if they helped and we did, too. If you find out about the bikes at one of our few dealer shops, and you take up their time and test ride their bike, buy from them.
If you find out about a bike from us and your dealer doesn't have it and won't order it, get it from us. If they don't have it but can order it, get it from them.
Buy from helpers.
If my favorite dealer isn't a Riv-dealer, can they get the bike for me?
Nope. They have to go thru the rigmarole of becoming a bona fide dealer. They can figure out how. It starts with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
