Need good places to look for a Rivenell bike online/offline new/used.

Can't find anything except Clist, one local LBS (used, slim pickin's), and eBay. But they have nothing in my size so far in the models I am trying to get. Seems pretty dry out there.
Any other good hunting grounds?
I know they have 5 retailers in the US, but don't know hwo they are.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

That's my plan when I raise the precise amount of dough. If I had the dough on hand, I would definitely just buy direct from them.

In the meantime, I am interested in seeing what dealers' builds cost. Maybe a little less than Rivendell direct?

Also, dealers may have some used ones around. Used would be good to save a lot of money.

What size do you need? I have an Atlantis and Rambouillet, both 64cm, and I'd consider selling one, preferably the Rambo. Won't be ultra-cheap, because I'm not eager.

Thanks for the kind offer. A Rambo would be perfect. However, I am only 5'7" 3/4 inches tall and PBH ~81-83, so I think I would only fit a 52 -54 cm size.

This is the google group for Rivendell Riders. There are usually a few bikes for sale at a time. Or you can post a Want To Buy and see what you get.
