Indy Fab Ti Crown Jewel

edited April 2015 in Your road bikes
Have finally bought the bike I have coveted for over eight years. Just waiting for some good weather to get some miles in but the short ride so far is very promising. The Tune rear hub is amazingly silent too which is somewhat unnerving when compared to the PMP hubs on my other bike but very nice.

    Great looking bike, great pics - let down a bit by the iffy saddle angle.

    Thanks and yes agree about the saddle angle which was tilted slightly upwards along with the stickers removed from the wheels too before I left the shop. The photos were taken by the shop I bought the bike from so I can't take any credit for them.

    Fantastic looking bike! I'm sure it rides just as well as it looks! Enjoy :D

    Cheers for the compliments guys. Im still spending a lot of time looking at it in awe after saving up for so long for it. Not exactly new tech of course but really pleased that it's a bike for life.

    Saw this on bespoke's IG page earlier. Incredibly nice.

    Pure class. Some things just look 'right'. Maybe in a few years...hmmmm...

    Thanks kayodot. Their IG page has an amazing selection of bikes to drool from. My favourite is still the parlee z zero form about five months back, blue with whit panelling. Scary thing is, Parlees's cost so much that it makes Indy Fab seem cheap.

    Cheers CookeeMonster. If you get an IF, i hope you dont have to wait as long as I did!
  • Absolutely stunning! I'd never heard of Indy Fab before, thanks for introducing me to them.

    Under-stated class. A bike for life for the grown-up rider. A contrast to the di2, disc brakes, deep section carbon wheels and garish paint jobs favoured by many forumites.

    That is a lovely looking bike. I've only heard good things about IF, and I can see why.
  • holy censored , that looks amazing! Enjoy!

    Great choice and welcome to the IF club as they really are awesome frames.

    However I only thought IF had two outlets in the UK and Bespokes website has some truly amazing ad jaw dropping bike porn on their build page. You really should have put a warning up.........

    Thank you for the continuing compliments. having just come in to nice weather for the last three days, i have also had a chance to actually ride it.

    I've read a lot about Ti bikes and how they feel to ride compared to steel and or carbon. Personally, i cant tell the difference possibly because i have been riding a stainless steel bike for the last few years but short summary is that it is a lovely smooth ride.

    Term1te, IF to their credit were right on time in producing and delivering the frame. They werent cheap but for a bike for life (well that s how i am rationalising it anyway) well worth it.

    That looks like my bike but better! Mine's a small size custom ti and I love it, especially as, like you, I've just taken it out of winter hibernation!

    Yours is very beautiful and has been put together very tastefully, without resorting to naff "matching" red hubs/cables and so on.

    I hope you and bike have a long and happy life together!
