Ian Schwartz uses a heavily modified Poverty F/C, not the stock one. Also, I'm pretty sure that he's in the process of designing his own at the moment.

i checked dans and they dont carry them anymore. i looked all over the web, and nobody has any. and i checked one of ians bike checks... i know its modified. i just figured i would try it and see how it works cause it would be cheaper.
