    Thanks! Sometimes (a lot of the time) I wish I never sold it.

    Probably going with seafoam powder and painted-to-match fork, thanks for the comments!

    That naked lobster is awesome: dirt, frame pump, electrical tape, worn SRM. The exact opposite of a garage queen.

    Mine's powder as well. Not sure paint would make sense over powder, unless you're getting froggy with the paint scheme.

    REALLY close to putting down a deposit for a steel disc Lobster. Thinking something that can take 40s and would at home in a CX race or could take to Baller.

    I'm in a similar boat--I've been stalking this thread lately. But I'm thinking AL+disc. First and foremost need a ride for dirty kanza next year. Thinking about something that could be my daily driver (ridden hard & put away wet) with geo that would work for road and gravel with maybe a possibility to put in a CX race--is this a pipe dream? Road/gravel would be the first and foremost use. Trail time would probably be pretty limited, and in reality probably wouldn't get used for CX racing initially unless it just really rocked my world.

    Per an email w/ Paul last week the current wait is 7 mos so it's time to sh*t or get off the pot as they say. Just trying to decide between this or trying to get my hands on one of ineff's 2nd hand SuperXs...

    Well, Mr. Paul makes some wonderful Alum bikes, but me thinks the money shot is a steel frame and fork (and a stem to match) in Seafoam green. Good to go for at least the next 100 years or so. Any of your great grand kids your size? I love my disc brakes, but Cantis and Minimotos work pretty darn good and won't change much in the next 50 years or so. Dealers choice, no wrong answers here.

    Absolutely do-able. Don't be shy about having a somewhat low BB (70-75mm bb drop) on a cx bike - it will drive everywhere nicely.

    Totally doable, that's what my Gaulzetti is. It's a low BB with shorter stays that is happy on the road, can easily handl 34-35 tires (not tones of mud clearance that way though). Love that bike.

    The proposed Lobster would be similar with slightly longer stays so I could get some 40s in there. Otherwise very similar. Won't be quite as snappy on the road or cross course but will still drive well.

    Just got the frame a week ago, and have about 250 miles on it so far. Couldn't be happier.

    If you're in Oakland (as the background indicates), then I think I've heard about your bike through the grapevine at Pursuit.

    Looks killer.

    He did a bang up job on mine a bit earlier in this thread. Including a rather stressful drilling session for cable routing bit.

    He told me about it. Time for another East Bay Rock Lobster ride/meetup?
