82 PBH / 71 saddle height
The original, as Mark intended. Dura Ace build. Yellow Silca frame pump color pop.
55cm Rivendell Grey Custom Cross (nickname "Old Grey Mare")
Mark's first custom race bike. Longer TT than and more brake reach than later customs. Old Atlantis crown.
55cm Rivendell Grey/Bean Custom Cross
Now we're cooking. 1x9 drivetrain with the carbon fiber bash guards. DT / MOpenPro wheelset, Whipperman chain, Mark's bar, TRP brakes a few pieces of Dura Ace, Ultegra and Shimano 600. One piece of beausage on the brake lever there, he says from dirty fingertips after tire-wipes. Superfantastic Joe Bell repaint that inspired the first generation Hunqapillar decal scheme.
Of Mark's bikes this one has the most racks and the least gears. Phil hubs. Predictably light for the father of the Roadeo. We don't sell Quickbeams anymore. You have to space out the rear fender like that on rear facing dropout singlespeeds so you can get the wheel out.
?cm Rock Lobster CX
Design around the geo of Mark's Grey/Bean custom with a slightly shorter top tube. A cross machine. Ti Nitto stem was a gift to Mark from Yoshikawa-san of Nitto.
Amy's 51.5cm Pink Rivendell Custom Cross
Amy used to race this zippy light-weight cross custom. The original fuchsia RBW Custom. Make sure to check out the blue ano Spookies, hand cut-out head lugs, and the sweet brake hanger! Made from pinched tubes brazed to a cable stop. Sweet! If you look close there's even a Campy crank bolt in that Ritchey crankset (I spy some more on some of Mark's bikes too - how many can you find?)

44cm Bontrager OR
Mark replaced the stock shock fork with this custom 650b red guy. Looks great, rides great.
