Lightweight Cyclocross Bike: Josh's Rocklobster
Josh sent in photos of his Rocklobster 2 years ago. Now, he's just built it up with new components take a look.
"This thing is pretty through the roof. It's the Scandium frame that I've had for the last couple seasons with all Easton's top stuff and shimano. I have the new EC-90 SLX carbon cranks and the lightest carbon tubulars they make so I think the bike is right around 16 lbs. The cranks are really crazy looking.

I'll go and weigh this thing on a digital scale later today. On a very primitive hanging scale it looks to be 16 lbs. It's freaky to pick it up.
