    New Custom Rock Lobster Frame

    Here's a couple photos of my new Rock Lobster. It'll be shipped to me this next week....for what it's worth, Paul at Rock Lobster delivered a fine product at a super competitive price.

    He was great from fitting to finish, and ran with my paint ideas perfectly. I was completely happy purchasing this bike, communicaton was great the entire time, Paul never lied to me (strange for a custom builder!) and kept me up to date throughout the entire process.

    I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to Paul over at Rock Lobster. Oh, and if you're looking for a cross frame for next year, better get your bike order in quick!

    Yet to be installed is the custom sterling silver headbadge that we did up through http://www.jen-green.com/

    The Custom name sticker was courtesy of AJ over at www.vcgraphix.com

    Tubing is some custom-drawn Easton Scandium GX-2 tubing (should see this in bikes for next year) and the brand new CNT EC90 full carbon rear end (again, a 2006 model).

    Fork is 2006 EC90SL.

    Enjoy the photos, and let me know what you think!

    It's nice. Sky blue with cream panels is one of my all-time favorite color schemes. One of these days I'll figure out something I need so I can have one painted that way.

    I love the sky blue color frame and the Easton stays

    but don't take this the wrong way,they just don't tie in well together,for some reason and I stared at it for awhile they just didn't mesh well.Maybe when it is fully built it will take shape.
    I love the stays and fork however.I just installed a Easton SL fork on my old 5200 and it completely changed up the ride characteristics for the better. I'm definately jealous of the stays,I bet it soaks up everything nicely. Thanks for posting.

    I would give it the highest marks....except...as an NC State grad and grad student.
    Well the damn baby blue makes me think of Tarheels...and...well I just can't get over that.;)

    love the sky blue

    and I'm a Duke fan, so I have the same Tar Heels aversion. But it's a beauty. Sky blue is the new orange.

    Cool bike. How much was the easton rear end up-charge? To be crass.

    Not sure. I'm not sure it's available to the public yet, unfortunately. I'd call Paul and ask him...also this particular scandium is a bit of an upcharge I believe from std. scandium because of the flared tubing....but again, you'd have to contact Paul @ Rock Lobster for pricing....
