    Van Dessel Rivet?

    Texas cyclesport Texas Cyclesport Road Bikes Parts Frames Groupsets & Apparel carries Van Dessel (never heard of them) Rivet. I think they're sharp. With a 22% BIKES coupon code, can get a nice SRAM force or Campy Athena/Chorus mix for around $2500. Some research suggests they're a stiff crit machine. I don't race...i want to ride fast with a group or solo for 20-30mi rides 2-3 times a week and an occasional 50 mile ride here and there.

    Anyone own one of these and care to share feedback?

    I think it'd be pretty cool to talk to the guy. would also like to hear from someone without a vested interest in the company. Might give the guy a call just the same. tHanks, Merckxman

    I rode a 2011 van dessel rivet (54 cm) for about 8 months until I was hit by a truck. I was fine overall, frame was not so fine. I have a 2012 cervelo r3 now, but the rivet handled better and had a smoother ride.

    i keep my eye out on ebay for a used frame to build up as a 2nd bike. pretty sure you'll enjoy bike if you pull the trigger.
