    Yep. If I only dedicated as much to my cycling craft as I did to my donut craft.

    ^ It's cool to see the OP of the gallery come first circle. It's like: "vsalon galleries 10 years on: where are they now?"

    That's a keeper Dave. Hold onto it, that paint design still sings.

    Hey Dave, I picked one of those up a little while ago. Been meaning to post the thing built for a while now. Loving the way it rides.

    Do I spy a 1 by?

    Very nice. I know many people think that IF lost it's soul after change in ownership and the move from MA to NH but I still think their bikes are amazing.

    Thanks NYCfixie. All of my bikes are 1 x by now, except for a vintage Colnago running vintage Campy. Its just not hilly enough around here to need a small ring.

    I love both my IF's - both came out of the new workshop in the last 5 years. I guess it is more 'corporate' (a.k.a. successful/stable etc) now than it used to be, but I don't think there's been any drop in standards from what I can see.

    Just fiddled with a bit to make it better (to me).

    New to me, but finally got it sorted.


    What can I say, I still have it bad for IF.

    Mr. Presí planet cross will always be one of my favorites. That thing is boss.

    Edit: For some reason I missed Airedaleís and didnít realize there were more. They all rock.

    The CJ looks great Dave, though I’m a bit biased. Never had the chance to put deep wheels on it during my ownership- balleur.

    A couple years late, but I'm finally starting to give this one the abuse it was designed to endure.

    Post ride with the lights on and then another snapshot with them off. The light is a bit better.

    A few notes:

    1. Dinotte and Light & Motion make stupid good lights. They are both external battery lights but I never worry about them running down during a ride. The rear light battery lives in the saddle bag, with all the puncture repair stuff. The L&M battery is on the seat tube and is a bit big but after two hours on the highest setting it never changed from green to amber on the battery charge indicator. Yes, a dynamo is in my future but I own these and have for years. So I'm not changing them out quite yet

    2. The best compliment I can give any product is that I don't think about it when I'm using it and the Indy Fab never makes me think about it. Handling and construction are pretty much perfect. I'm sure today's version of this bike is a bit sleeker but for the moment this will do just fine. I did, in fact, receive a compliment on it this very evening.

    The bead blasted Ti hides the dirt well. This is much dirtier than it looks. Been riding it hard on some unpaved surfaces the past couple months with a few minor sponge baths. Fit is based on my Zanconato and tailored a bit for the mission of the machine. Here's to many more future beatings!



    La Cheeserie!
