Rob Roberson (Masi) Custom Criterion Frame & Fork Set (59cm)

I was a young lad working a bike shop in San Diego called Adams Avenue Bicycles when I first met Rob, who was something of a legend even then.
A few years later I was in a position to have a criterion frame custom built by Rob.
Joe Bell, another well known and highly respected institution in the So California cycling world, was responsible for the custom paint job.
Being a custom frame, it took awhile to complete and by the time it was I was sponsored and riding team equipment.
I rode this frame infrequently and never hard and never raced.`
If you know anything about Rob Roberson frames (and Joe Bell paint jobs for that matter), you'll know that my asking price is actually a steal. . .
Translation: don't low ball me :)
