    2010 Rock Lobster Road

    I just finished building up a new Rock Lobster road frame for my partner. The frame is a mix of Nivachrome/Reynolds steel and weighed somewhere in the neighborhood of 3.5 lbs naked. The frame is pretty compact, but she's still a looker. The paint is "cosmic blue." The build kit (GVH bikes) is nothing exotic, but that's not the point here. We wanted something light, strong, fast, serviceable, and durable. Pretty happy so far.

    Very nice. Paul does really good work.

    Built up, it's around 17-18 lbs (just a guess). I don't have a proper scale, but it's a bit lighter than my (larger) Soulcraft with a similar build. That bike weighs ~18-19 lbs. Both bikes are really lively, efficient machines. Great rides.

    Since I found something called Jagwire Tube Tops, I don't need those ugly clear stick on protectors on the head tube anymore.

    Indeed, those are wine corks. Just a small touch and a nod to Rivendell, from which I borrowed the idea.
