Headbadges



A lugged steel bicycle should have a proper headbadge. Decals are OK but seems to me there ought to be some tin on the head tube. Rivendell definitely has a classy badge and they do separate ones for each model too. And here's an elegant modern design in stainless steel by Curt Goodrich. Coincidentally, Curt builds some of the custom Rivendells in his Minneapolis shop. Old school or 21st century, headbadges are works of art.
