Rivendell Bleriot Frame Opinions

I just realized the Rivendell Bleriot Frame is available. Spicer Cycles sells it for $595.45.

Anyone built a bike using this frame?

Opinions from anyone regarding this frame: quality, price, building a 650b wheel bicycle, etc.

View the brochure from Rivendell.

I looked long and hard at this frame before I setteled on a Salsa. The 650B wheels are what threw me, I was wanting 700's. I had a chance to ride one, it's a beauty. When I build up a heavy weight touring bike, I'm going to go with this frame. For rougher roads, and weight I really do dig the 650B wheel size.

Rivendell's are beautiful frames
Can't go wrong with any of them

But I'd have to go with a Heron Touring in "Gooding Green" (should have been "Junebug Green")
