Oh my, oh my. The new Rock Lobster just got dropped off by Mr. UPS man. 3.3 pounds of Easton Ultralight. Not quite as light as the Scandium which was 3.14 lbs, but will end up about the same weight when built. As always, the dimensions are SPOT ON. Thanks Paul! It's great when one of the world's best frame builders can whip out your personal measurements and nail each frame identically each time. I'm still amazed by this process. Rad.
I went for the photo-negative colors of the black bike. I'm a geek, but it'll look hot. Essentially I'm going with the same set up for this bike with the following changes:
- Alpha Q CX 2 versus Alpha Q CX.
- FSA Carbon cranks and carbon guards versus Dura Ace and Wetzikon guards. Still running 42t x 12/25.
- Wheels...dunno at this time. Probably going to put the FSA 488's on this white bike and build a set of tubular Mavic Reflex Tubular CD's (ceramic if I can get them) with Dura Ace hubs. At a minimum, I want two sets of wheels with the identical tubular tires on them.
