    Default FS: pink IF Planet Cross & Condor CX frames

    Just in time for the holidays, I have two cross frames that I'd like to offer to y'all:

    Independent Fabrication Planet X - 56

    Purchased used in 2007 from Steve Elmes himself. Ridden – and raced! – since then by my wife, who has just moved to an Ibis that fits her better. Awesome custom paint, SS head badge, Alpha Q fork, King HS. Some blemishes, but will include factory-correct touch up paint in pink and white. Asking $750 + actual shipping.







    Condor CX - 56 x 57.5

    56 ST x 57.5 TT. I bought this off craigslist last year, built it up as a SSCX, had some fun with it, but just haven't used it enough to justify the garage space. Nice maroon repaint, but plenty of, let's call it "patina." Not sure if the fork is really an IF, but it has IF decals and is painted to match. No head badge, I put a sticker there. Asking $250 for frame, fork, HS + actual shipping.








    More pics of both bikes are here on on Picasa.

    5% of any sale goes to VS. Local pickup is fine in the SF Bay area.

    Thanks for your interest,

    /Greg

    while I dont know greg, I have seen his wife on the pink IF at arastradero (it must be the one...how many pink IF PX can there be in the bay area?) - besides the fact its a PX, the paint schema and color is really great.

    Good question, sorry for leaving that info out. TT is 56 c-c, but ST is 54 c-c. Hope that helps.

    That's her! Hard to be anonymous on this frame. Thanks for the plug (and how have we not yet met on a ride?)

    I have love for the Condor. Though the thought of flipping my current CX/commuter/rain bike is not high on my list of to-do's right now!

    Do you have more measurements on the Condor? I'm curious about the following...
    Steerer tube? 1" or 1 1/8"
    HT length?
    Rear spacing?
    Seat Tube OD for fr der clamp?
    Seat Tube ID for seatpost size?
    Hard to tell from the pics, is there enough slide in the dropouts to tension the SS chain or were you running it tensioner?
    What size tires can fit in there?

    Phew...thanks for your help!
    I'm not normally a praying man, but if you are up there save me Superman.

    Dude, answers below:

    Steerer tube? – 1"
    HT length? – 14cm
    Rear spacing? – 130mm
    Seat Tube OD for fr der clamp? – 28.7mm (caliper measurement)
    Seat Tube ID for seatpost size? – 27.2 & there is a binder bolt, see last pic in OP
    Hard to tell from the pics, is there enough slide in the dropouts to tension the SS chain or were you running it tensioner? – Dropouts are mostly vertical; I was using an eccentric BB
    What size tires can fit in there? – 32 definitely, 33 maybe, 35 no

    Hope that helps, thanks for asking!

    /Greg

    I shouldn't even be looking at this, but am I right that there are no bottle bosses on the condor? i.e. it's a 'true' cx frame?

    Cheers,

    That is correct. Pure CX no bottle cage bosses. Cleaner that way...

    Ah, I love the frame, but need bosses since I'm not a cx guy. would ride it as a winter/touring bike. Best of luck!

    gkk can weigh in when he sees this, but I'm pretty sure he no longer has der Condor.
