Another Stunning everyday bike from Rivendell Bikes, the Platypus excels on pavement, bridal path and light groomed gravel! A perfect bike for days in the forest or along the UK Cycle Network.
The Platypus is a versatile, all-around bike for mostly pavement riding with loads from zero to 30 pounds.
It’s one of our plushy, cushy, incredibly comfortable long-wheelbasers, and we highly recommend you put an upright bar on it. Let us help you do that.
NO bike is better than the Platypus for zooming and cruising, shopping and commuting and all purpose day-riding on pavement.
The Platypus has plenty of fender room and braze-ons where they need to be, so it’s great in the rain, too.
Same with racks. It’s not for heavily loaded tours, but racks always come in handy. If you don’t want racks, put at least one bag on it. Put the Platypus to work for you.
The Platypus is arguably the most beautiful bike in our line, and we try so damn hard to make them all beautiful. It’s the continuation, and fourth model in our long tradition of mixte frames. It’s for all-around road riding with loads up to maybe 30lbs.
