This is sick! Also I have the same BikeJerks kit.

And there's a third Lobster up there now.

Thanks just got it yesterday. Your White roadie is a beaut too. Is it really a 57? Mines a 58 but my headtube is like twice the size yours!

It's roughly a 57 seat tube and 56.5 top tube. Original owner specified a lot more saddle to bar drop than you have on yours - such is the beauty of full custom geo!

Too true! I always preferred riding smaller track frames but this bike feels so much more pointed and stable underneath me. It’s great.

Ok so im also in the process of a gravel bike but I have much different gearing. How'd you come to the conclusion of 46x11-32?

Semantics aside the geo and build kit are more of an “all road” bike. Also I live on the Coastal plain of Delaware. A few years and a hilly town away, this bike could have 42mm tires and a 38t chainring. I asked Paul to build me a bike that was able to do both.
