Black Sunday! But I need to decide on a bike sale...I'm now staring at selling either my Lobster or the Rocky. The Lobster I've had 19 years & restored it a while back. Just finished (nearly) the Rocky & not yet rode it. I'm riding a lot of road to get over a knee injury & that is where I'll be mainly. The MTB is an occasional ride and both are sat getting little use or none speaking of the Rocky. One of them has to go, but which one?...

Answers on a postcard please!...

If I had held on to a bike for 19 years there would have to be a reason.

That's a no-brainer. As HLF says, keep the Lobster. You just don't throw away 19 years of loyal service.

The Lobster was the first batch of Expert frames that came into UK by NTI. I bought it just before going the 1994 World Champs in Vail, Colorado. An Amazing time out there riding rigid in Vail & Utah on the slickrock...so I guess I've answered my own question...

It still rides really nice, just needs more use...

Semi slicks on the rocky, for gentle road rides with bridlepath bumpier route cut throughs.
Then you can keep it as well.
