I bought a bike on ebay last night, to use as stationary trainer bike in the off season. I was curious if anybody had ever hear of the brand...Roger Riviere. I know about the great track racer but not the bike. The bikes looks very cheaply made from a components point of view. The rear derailer looks to be plastic. (?).

Here are a few choice words from the ad listing the components.

It has a leather ADGA 28A Saddle, 27x1.15 rims/tires,simplex derailers,10 speeds,RACER brakes,Nervar 3 piece france cranks. The rims have large butterfly like bolts that make them quick release.

No big deal here I just can't find any information on this thing.

The url for ebay is,


Thanks in advance for any comment on this very common appearing bicycle. Again, I am just curious! --
