    My IF was getting jealous

    Here are a few pics of My IF built up last year.

    SS disk only EBB IF
    FOX FX-80 (also have matching IF fork)
    XTR cranks with Jericho ring
    959 SPD's
    King SS wheels
    XT dual pot hydro's
    Thompson stem and post
    Easton Monkey Light riser

    Short story...

    Went to LBS with plans to order custom 29er IF. LBS had this frame built for customer had to bail for unknown reasons. Short ride around the lot, quick stop to the bank and the rest is history. This bike rides better than I would have expected. It easily surpasses all of my expectations and would highly recommend Independent Fabrications.

    Enjoy - Eric in AZ

    Here are a few answers

    Thanks for the comments.

    It weighs apx 23Lbs as pictured

    I live in Desert Ridge (N/E PHX/Scottsdale). Lately I have been sticking to road biking commuting to work.

    I have 29er plans in the works. Shiggy beat me to the punch with his secret adventure bike project

    The tire clearance looks fine, but I will measure when I get home.

    Later Eric
    okay
