IF - Ti Deluxe
I picked the new Independent Fabrication (IF) road bike up today, a new Corvid. Looks awesome. But I also picked up the mountain bike after its repair from an assualt with Spanish mud. "Bikeshop Miguel" had done another great job.
New XTR rear mech and chain, serviced the bottom bracket, trued the wheel rims up and tweaked the shifting. I took her out for a quick spin and she runs like a dream. TheTi-Deluxe is without doubt a fantastic bike to ride, great fun, responsive to sprints, can chuck it about, and the titanium shot peened frame looks great, even after the 3 years Ive been throwing it on the floor. I've swapped a few bits over time, Fox forks now, and runs on Mavic Crossmax, but a great bike and a joy to ride. Cant wait to spend the next 4 days pootling through the Sierras.
