    I just posted on ebay, but if someone contacts me from here,
    I can stop the auction.


    This is a custom Rock Lobster road bike that has been
    converted to a fixed gear bike. The frame and fork are
    lugged Columbus SLX, with Campy horizontal dropouts in the
    rear. There is a braze-on for a front derailure. The frame
    and fork are about 8 years old, never crashed and ridden
    less than 10 times in the last 3 years. I built it up in the
    current configuration for winter riding, but never got into
    fixed gear training.

    This is a custom sized frame, and has a long top tube.

    The frame: ST: 53cm c-t TT: 59cm c-c Head angle: 74 Seat
    angle: 74 Fork is a straight blade Columbus SLX painted
    "School Bus" yellow.

    The parts: Salsa Bar and stem (44cm/12.5cm). Shimano Dura
    Ace cranks and BB (172.5). Shimano 600 HS. Front Shimano
    105 brake/lever. No rear brake and lever is a dummy. Front
    wheel is Shimano 600 hub on Mavic Open 4 CD. Rear wheel is
    Via Sunshine Pro Track on Campy box rim. Brand new
    Vittoria Technosport 700x23c tires. American Classic
    seatpost with Selle San Marco saddle (Trek VW saddle).
    Rear fender. No pedals.

    This is a great riding bike, even as a fixed gear for the
    road. I'm selling because I no longer have the time to
    devote to the sport like I did, and having extra or specific
    bikes just isn't justifiable any more. Keep it as a fixed
    gear; put a gruppo on it; keep it as a second rain bike, or
    first time road bike, you'll be happy with this bike.
