Steel disc brake adventure frame for Eureka, Calif.

 I have been posting a lot of photos on the Rock Lobster Facebook page so if you don't see it here, it is most likely on Facebook. I don't intend to neglect this blog but I am spread pretty thin for time these days-it's a good thing to be busy. Speaking of busy, here's the latest frame to get sent out-a disc brake road/dirt frame like a CX but with touring braze-ons on the rear. The Whiskey disc fork and Ritchey stem were painted to match.
 The wheelbase of this bike will not be as long as a standard touring bike but will be nice for occasional loaded trips. The frame, fork and stem weigh in at 6 lb. 1 oz. so it could even be a race bike if the need arises. This one will take a pretty large tire even the Bruce Gordon 700x43 rock 'n road.
