Unofficial 25th anniversary MTB frame.
About a year and a half ago I realized that it had been 25 years since I built my first MTB frame. I got the idea to make a 25th anniversary model. I guess nobody seemed interested enough to order it so it never got built. This frame and fork were built in the spirit of the 25th anniversary bike-fillet brazed , fully rigid and a nice paint job. This bike has a lof of hand work in it....so much that I christen it the 25th anniversary Rock Lobster. The owner doesn't know yet but he's getting the kind of bike I built in 1984 , with all of his specifications of course.
The colors and panels were the customer's choice and I think the whole scheme works really well.
Since this is a 'Signature' model, it gets the sterling silver headbadge and headtube collars.
It was getting late and I really couldn't do the kind of photos that showcased the details of this frame but I'll attempt to do some better photos next week. The downtube cable routing was a customer spec and also the way I routed cables on my MTB frames for the first 3 1/2 years. By the way, this is a 29er and it is a disc-only setup. Not exactly 1984 but probably a lot better .
