Reader Ryan brought the new Rivendell Cheviot bicycle to my attention. For years, I've been in love with the Betty Foy and now this orange beauty has lured me in, frame, handlebars, and all. To my eye, the Mixte frame looks exactly like the Betty, though that can't be, otherwise the Betty would now be available in an alternate color. Perhaps the Cheviot's wheel base is longer. Whatever the flavor of reason, like all Rivendell's bikes, the Cheviot has great utility.
