We took a very clean, attractive Schwinn High Sierra and built a Rivendell style city bike for a fraction of the cost. We believe this would be Grant approved! This is a comfortable bike that is a sensible frugal build. Would a Rivendell with a Nitto Albatross, MKS Touring pedals and a Brooks be nicer? Of course! But this is 80% of the experience for 1/4 the price.
