Ive had this hanging around for a while & really dont know whether to bother going down the single-speed road or not :( It is a US made LOBSTER made with TANGE ULTRASTRONG tubing and has PAUL rear dropouts..It is absolutely stunning in the flesh and the build quality is perfect...I MAY consider selling it though :? What do you all reckon? Really would like to make way for another retro build so something as to go...

I think it would be a crime not to build that into a single.

I bet the ride would be superb!

apart from no canti mounts and looking like a 17 i would have made an offer myself.

cheers,Al

:D Yep its a crime not to build it ,unfortunately i like riding whats built in my stable at the mo :) If i do get the right offer i will indeed consider parting with it...It is 17 c-c and about 18.5 c-t quite a tall front end....Never even been built apart from forks...
