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.
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.
PBH's are lightly flexible because of the step-through
