Rock Lobster Al-Road

So I've been on Paul's list since ~October, and got an email this week that he's ready to start welding. Going to be an aluminum 650b all-road/bikepacking type thing. Room for 48s and fenders, steel fork with all sorts of screwy pimples and whatnot. Di2, internal dynamo lighting, yadda yadday... It'll be another 6 weeks or so before I have it in hand, but the frame is mostly done, looks like.

Anyway, you guys probably just want pics





(Mostly) Finished:


9/4 update: Took some decent pics of the thing:

Fork's looking good. Based on the timeline Paul gave me, I should have this in hand early April

Long wheelbase, mostly. I'll be running a regular old Ultegra 50/34

Nice blog entry about the bike!

"This is what custom frames are all about in my opinion. Just try to find something like this in a store-or anywhere, for that matter ! An aluminum frame that can take a tapered fork, Di II, fenders and generator lights F&R. Here it is- with a steel fork made for a special rack that has a straight steerer with a converter crown race to fit the oversize headset. Not only that, the color is a chocolate brown with some coarse gold metalflake. The only conservative touch are the original black and yellow logos, just like the ones on bikes I built in the mid '80's. I really hop that the customer in Brooklyn , N.Y. is happy with the work I did to make all these ideas become a reality."

Thanks all!

Still going to be a few weeks before it's all built up. As soon as I get the frameset, I'm shipping the fork off to Eric at Winter Bicycles to have a rack and bag made. Other than that, I have most of the parts in hand.
