Up for consideration today is this 2011 "The Rivet" frameset made by Van Dessel. I purchased it for some of the components on it, but would like to sell it to fund my recent wilderness first responder training.

This is a perfect bike for race day, without breaking the bank. It shows pretty normal wear and tear from use (like scrunched decals or minor paint chips/scuffs), but is in perfectly functional condition. Bottom bracket dust caps are included, as is a headset top cap. All bearings spin smooth.

Enve fork is a 1.5" tapered unit for ultimate front end stiffness, and is cut to 173mm. Geo: ST 50cm c-t, ETT 52.5cm, 7cm BB drop, 74deg STA, 72deg HTA, 115mm headtube, ~47.5mm of steerer above the headset bearing cover.

Asking $500 and split shipping anywhere in the continental US. Happy to reduce that price for local pickup in the SF Bay Area, and am open to reasonable offers. Can grab additional photos upon request.

The bike takes a 31.6 seatpost - I have a carbon FSA K Force 0 setback in 31.6 and great condition that I can include for $30 extra.

Bump, added an album with some less awful pictures. Happy to take pictures of whatever, on request.

Bump - local sale was pending but buyer encountered some unforeseen costs.

I've had my fair share of nibbles but no firm bites. Happy to work within reasonable confines on this one.

Frame weight on this thing is silly low. Pair it with some deep section race wheels and you'll be cornering on a rocket ship.

I have this in a 60cm and it’s the lightest frame i’ve ever owned. Even the guys at the shop are surprised when they pick it up.

I know, it's a little bit ridiculous how light it is.

Bump!

crazy that this is still here with the price drops.

sensible geometry, super light, real good looking. fork is worth half that asking price.
