    Here's my 29er that doesn't get ridden enough. I love the bike, but have a hard time loading up and driving to the trails, when I can just jump on a road bike.

    They are cool. Gary showed me the shop when I was in Boston a month or so ago.

    I felt like asking him for a job!

    I sorta felt like calling my company and quitting and working in the IF shop and living in Boston.

    And I'm not really kidding.

    That is funny as I haven't been to the shop, but have built a freindship with a few cats over a year and would love to be a part of the company.

    I think they make fantastic bikes, but the personal relationships they make speak more about the company to me then anyother one I have ever dealt with!

    My Planet X all rounder.

    You will see that my cable routing is more roadish than cross. Yeah, it's a triple..........but a pretty Dura Ace triple. Although you would have no way to know that since I can't find a drive side pic for some reason. I'll take some updated pics now that Mr. Hampsten has help guide me through the pic upload process.

    I have used this bike for everything from MTB singletrack, Florida style, to group rides with my buds shod in Michelin PR 25's. My favorite setup is as pictured with the Michelin Cross Jets. Open Pro's with Phil hubs.

    Now that I have the Pacenti fixie built up I have the ENO hub that was on the Serotta. I am thinking about building her up a SS rig.

    I have to believe from what I have read that this bike as it is shown here would make a perfect R2D2 ride.

    Probably the best bang for the buck that I own.

    Hot rig. Is there anything better than a fixed gear on the road? Not for me!

    Hey, did you ever sell that bike? I kept trying to figure a way to buy it from you but could not justify the expense with what I have in the stable right now.

    Great setup...... AND...... S&S. Lots of versatility there.

    I tend to be pretty brand loyal and just love all of the Indy Fabs.

    Too much bling, although the flash may be making it look more garish than it is. A well executed XS is one of the most jewelry-like frames I've ever seen, in a good way.

    Here's a good example from ifrider.com:
