    A little face lift for 2013. The Chorus 10-speed groupo went to my Primus Mootry and I put the 7800 groupo I had lying around into service.

    Steel racebike + 7800 + Nemesis = All you need and nothing you don't.

    Brilliant looking bike, even with a "dated" group. Fantastic bike, well done.

    Wanted to check in and say I just put down a deposit for a new road frame from Paul. Super stoked, but now the long wait comes...

    I just sent in my deposit a few days ago as well. I've been wanting a celeste green road frame for a long time. Paul seemed like a great guy on the phone and am excited about working with him.
    Jukebox; I think that's the route I want to go. Level top tube and a real fork. What size is that out of curiousity?

    I'm loving this one so far. Maybe I'll get an orange one someday to go with it.

    Crossed and Ready for Season

    Team Scandium (53tt). Light and flicky. Probably fits me best of all my bikes. Updated with Fango Tubies for race season. New trad Ritchey bars, seatpost and SLR saddle. Running Campy 9 with a 38/46 and 13-26 in the back. The whole shebang is pretty light at around 16.5lbs give or take. Thanks...JT

    Life sucks when you're too busy to ride your new bike. I finally got out on it this weekend and am very happy with everything. Paul nailed the fit, handling, tube selection, it rides great and handles great too. I definitely need to get more miles in on it, preferably on Westchester County dirt.

    Killer bike, Jukebox. Looking forward to seeing that one show up in the ride reports.

    I love that it's a small world and that the people here are so passionate that they notice stuff like that!

    Figured I'd throw my hat into the ring here...this is my first Lobster (a CX trail bike) in commute mode. Number 2 (a SS cross race frame) is on it's way. Paul is a great guy and will get plenty of my business in the future.
