Custom Cross #2: Josh's Rock Lobster


This is a cross post (no pun intended), as Josh's bike was in the lightweight gallery for some time now. But his lightbike is also handbuilt, so kudos to him and Rock Lobster. The first double gallery member.

The first American made frame to hit Plus One Lap is none other than Josh's Rock Lobster made in Santa Cruz California. Weighing in at approximately 17.1 lbs he reports and looking pretty bad ass.






Here's the breakdown:
