For sale due to injury that won't heal :(

Titanium Rock Lobster, dated 1999 by Merlin Cycles, the importer of the Sadoff designed titanium framed bikes back in the day.

This was bought as a complete bike by me with all the period stuff a few years back and it was easy to tell then that it had very little use. I changed a few bits and pieces and have only ridden it on tarmac a couple of times since. It's sat unused since I hurt myself 3 years ago.

It's in nice condition and ready to ride.

Thanks for the interest but at this stage I'd rather keep it local.

Cheers

Would you consider just selling the frame, and stick the parts on here.

I know it's not ideal. I really like it,just don't need any of the parts on it.

It depends on tyres / tubes......with the current ones, just under 11kg. When it was on Superlights it was closer to 10kg

No thanks, I'd rather it goes complete. You could always buy it and stick the parts on here :)
