Rock Lobster - Captain America Bike

I ran into Paul Sadoff of Rock Lobster who was toting around a sweet cyclocross ride he built up for the recent San Diego custom bike show. The bike had a USA type of theme with as many of the components being sourced domestically as possible. Not just from American companies, but actually made in the USA. This includes the White Brothers crank, Thompson seatpost stub, Paul brakes and Phil Wood hubs. With the brakes, frame and hubs being built in Norcal, the Rock Lobster is a true locavore! The bike also features a 1.5" headset. The seat mast and through-the seatmast rear brake cable routing is clearly in the pattern of Sacha White's Speedvagen but the internal top tube cable routing gives the frame it's own clean style and super cyclocross functionality. If this machine tickles your fancy, Paul says it's for sale.

I agree. He's a craftsman. And, he races what makes so he knows what he's doing.

I'm going to go ahead and leave Kobe's comment up here because it's hilarious. Say hi to the rest of your Nigerian scamming buddies, George Washington, Shakira and Shaq.
