I used to own this bike!
Here is what it looked like when I owned it..
This is a steel lugged Rock Lobster from Paul Sadoff, made in approximately 1998 and custom built for another rider. Paul is a extremely respected builder in Santa Cruz, CA that has been making frames for over 30 years. He also sponsors a cyclocross team and their blog is pretty interesting. Have a look…
I purchased this complete bike on eBay in 2008 and rode it for a few seasons around Duluth. I decided it was just a hair too big for me so I stripped it and sold the frame on eBay in July of 2010. Considering what I paid and what I sold it for and what parts I kept, I paid about $50 to ride a great and prestigieous custom made bike! That’s the beauty of being used.
I hope the current auction goes well and that the new owner will be satisfied.
