    Looking for particular "luxury" steel road bike..

    Maybe you guys can help me, I've been looking for this bike now for a few hours and it is driving me nuts! I saw it a few days ago maybe on this or another forum and now I cant get it out of my mind. I remember it being a very nice current steel road bike and the makers of it definitely referred to it as a luxury bike and ride. I also remember it having a lot of cork accents and the handle bars being wrapped in some twine or cord. It may also have had a basket on the front, it was a very "country" type bike. If anyone has any idea what bike this is I would be grateful for your help!!

    Thanks for the help guys but unfortunately none of those bikes are it. This bike was so awesome and classy, I hope I come back across it. I just remember the drop handle bars being wrapped in twine and the end plugs being cork. I believe they only made a few models, one road, one SS and maybe another commuter type bike and they were pretty pricey. If anyone has anymore ideas throw em out her.

    Not as "luxury" as Rivendell, but it's all relative.

    Rene Herse does bikes like that. FYI- Mark Nobilette does the custom rivendells and Rene Herse and Zinns. He is a great builder. I have a lugged 57cm show bike that I am selling right from mark.
