My new Rivendell...

...lug, that is... Rivendell has been giving away promotional lugs, so I got one. Now all I need are some more lugs and tubes and I'll have my first Riv frame!

That's probably all I could afford as well. But it's a beautiful lug.

I am trying to think of a cool use for it. You know: paper weight, key chain, but cannot think of anything good yet. Maybe something for my bike stuff/tools. Pencil holder...If I have a choice, my next bike will be a Rivendell.

If I had one it would go with my collection of long haired ponies and I heart you T-shirts. What is it about lugs that make folks reach for the My Little Pony graphic design kit.

I'm going to make a lugged head for a cane with some of my practice stuff. Then finish a nice wooden shaft for it and have the coolest limp on the block next time I mess up my knee.

Who here has noticed the cool design feature? A help for the jiggless builder. Andy.

Those guys are about a block from my work, so I stop in regularly. I asked about buying a set of lugs which was politely denied until (maybe) a set has been discontinued.

Well....not really sure, does it have something to do with the "double band" on the lug bottom?
How about the lug point lining up with the "V" above it, sort like a firearm sight for alignment?

thanks,

Brian

Looked like it was designed for pinning. But it confused me as to how.

The design feature i refeered to is the joint center pimple. To those who have never tried to find and mark the center of a joint, this feature saves a LOT of time and hassle. I often will mark a spot with a center punch (very lightly) as this reference, being don already and actually on center is a bonus. Any lug can be pinned BTW. The double band at the bottom is more style but would give a nice point to cut down the lug's stack height, if that's what you needed (actually not a bad option if the frame's really small already).

And then you'll really need a center of tube joint indicator, after the bottle opener was used. Andy. (who really isn't this much of a jerk but still is crabby after his colonscopy today).
