Rivendell Lugs - 50% Off

The market has spoken.

Though these lugs are unique and incredibly rare, the asking price of $150 per set, is clearly not something the market will bear. With that in mind, I've reduced the price of these lugs by 50% (from $150 to $75.00 per set), plus shipping.

If someone would like 5 or more sets, the price will be $65.00, plus shipping.

Oh, and for those who've previously purchased lugs at the higher price, I'll pro-rate the discount to a future lug set purchase.

I have the matching crown i got with my Rivendell back in '96. It's been on my desk as a fidget spinner ever since along with a couple head badges. I hate to bother you for one set but I can imagine that type of project never happening again and having a full set of lugs and crown would be cool. Do you know why Grant didn't want any forks being built with the crowns he sold? Was it a brand protection thing? Everything about it looks great and identical to the one actually on the bike.

Those crowns were believed to cause fork blade failures, so Grant sold them as paper-weights, iirc. The design changed just a year or two after they were first introduced.

I have about 125 sets of lugs in storage, I am happy to sell you a single set if that's all you need.
