This is the Joe Appaloosa, a touring frame from Rivendell Bicycle Works.

The name Joe Appaloosa comes from an American horse breed. The frame itself is noble, elegant, active, and tough just like the actual Appaloosa.

The frame is made as if they took their two most famous touring bikes, the Sam Hillborne and the Hunqapillar, combined them and made one heck of a road touring bike. By looking at the thickness of the fork pipe, and the tire clearance, you could really tell that the two are combined

Thanks to the long chain stay and the wide wheel base, you will be able to experience a steady feeling, also the gentle seat tube angle will provide a comfy ride for the riders.
Incredibly light steering.
The slightly curved fork will give you no problems riding through rough and bumpy roads.
You could immediately feel the toughness of Rivendell's frames when carrying heavy luggage or going down a hill.
These make the Joe Appaloosa to be a perfect bike for commuting, shopping, or even a adventure out in the wilderness.

They can fit 50mm tires with fenders and 55mm without them.
Cage mounts, and rack mounts on both front and rear are equipped. Basically, it's got all you need.

Lugged frame as usual.

Fun fact, the handwritten "Joe" on the frame decal is by the daughter of Grant, the boss of RBW.
