SILVER'S RAWLAND 'SOGN' TOURER
Silver came to us with two bikes and a problem - neither of them really worked for her. A Rivendell that had the build she wanted but was too big, and this Rawland Sogn that was the perfect size but with older parts that didn't suit her riding style. We managed to get the majority of the very nice stuff from the Riv onto the Rawland, and so this Sogn build was born! Big ol' tyres from Compass, a Surly front rack and some Ergon grips were about all we had to add to this beautiful steel rig - the Superbe Pro cranks and those OG Velocity Atlas rims are about as good as a build like this can get.
This one was a real pleasure to put together, we're stoked that we know it's getting ridden on commutes, around town and even hitting some of that all-important Adelaide Hills gravel!
