Collectible, heirloom single-speed Rock Lobster mountain bike built in 1991. This bike was custom made for me, it's #8 -- Rock Lobster had no production line of single-speed mountain bikes at the time. This Lobster has a light and nimble steel frame; it's simple and clean -- with internal brake cable in the top tube and a carry strap. The geometry is a slightly stretched out in comparison to current single speeds, and it's comfortable, swift, and smooth. Plus, it's decked out with vintage parts from the 1980's and 1990's -- Suntour hubs still rock.
