    When most of your miles are spent commuting, or sneaking in a quick hour on the dirt, it's good to get back on the light steel roadie after a while.
    Gravel is fine, but road bikes are very nice too.

    My old CX frame cracked, which is a bummer, but it gave me the opportunity to pick up this sweet 2004

    Got all excited on this evening's regular visit to the IF Store when I saw this gorgeous beauty thinking it would fit me, but it won't:



    Someone snap it up!

    Nice and simple, and i love the color. any idea what they cal it? im currently hoping to have a bike painted something very similar and looking for a good color choice. metallic burgundy sounds stupid.

    I think it's called Cherry Red Metallic. Ironically, I'm the second owner and am not in love with the color- well all red bikes in general. Hoping to get a repaint some year soon with a bright green to blue fade. 90's style.

    They had a color at one time that was Black Cherry which looks similar to this bike, but it's hard to tell for sure. Their current color that is close to this is Ruby Red Pearl.

    Correction- it's Ruby Red, not cherry red.

    Slightly more real-world shot of the color:

    Thanks. It's a shame that my current life situation lends itself to so little road riding but there's always a place in my garage for a straight-up road bike and the way I see it there's no reason for it not to be this one for a long time to come. The only way I'd buy another road frame anytime soon would be to snag a cheap CAAD or old steelie to build up cheapo 1x10 and stash at my folks place for summer visits.

    Snagged this second hand last night. Now waiting (im)patiently for it to arrive. Wanted an IF for a long time, this popped up and before I knew it I'd transferred the funds.

    Not riding it nearly enough these days (versus commuting and MTB), but still a superb bike.

    Finally got her new shoes and bar tape. I didn't get the best pictures because I was the guy in lycra causing a hold-up in the line at the coffee shop
