You won't be disappointed. Great bikes. Here is my Drakkar with a newly added Racktime Topit rack and Acorn boxy rando bag.

You won't be disappointed. After building and finally riding my rSogn I've decide to sell my Atlantis and keep the rSogn and a couple of others. Not really thinning the herd just picking and choosing and the Rawland won a spot.:beer:

they seem to be pretty popular, strange that they dont seem to keep stock of them around.
then again, what do I know about manufacturing bicycle frames.

BT, I'm PM'ing you my buddy's e-mail now.

I think that Rawland's made some awesome bikes, but they're not the most business oriented bike company. They seem to like R&D and trying new things, not keeping stock of existing designs. In fact, it appears they only do a single production run of a given frameset, which means there's relatively few of each model out there.

If my buddy's cSogn doesn't work for you, Rawland is supposed to have some new frames in stock later this year (the website says "Fall 2012" for the Stag and the Drakkar II). The Nordavinden is in stock now.

If you find a model that you like, grab it. Don't assume that any other iteration will have the same features, geometry, etc.

I'm sort of hoping my disc commuter gets damages so I can justify buying this frame. Not a stunning deal, but if someone is in the market, here's a Drakkar frameset. I can help negotiate local seller, especially if you can make me a good deal on Campy alloy components!
