"IT'S REAL, IT'S ALIVE, IT'S A PLATYPUS."

The Platypus is Rivendell's gorgeous, zippy, long wheelbase, mixte style step-through. It is ideal for cruising around town, hitting the grocery store, or spending a long day in the saddle on some paved and less-than-paved surfaces. 

Its got all of the rack mounts, pump pegs, and room for fenders anyone could ever need.

Build Notes:

Each frame comes with a headset (No spacers) and square taper bottom bracket pre-installed and a seat post.

The 50cm Platypus takes a 650b/27.5 wheel set.

The 55 and 60cm Platypus takes a 700c/29" wheel set.

Max tire clearance is 2.2" no matter the wheel size.

Best built with V-Brakes, but cantis will work just fine.

This bike is designed to be set up with an upright riding position and a swept back bar.
