    Something to Drool Over

    If anyone was in search of something drool-worthy today, here's a good candidate:

    http://www.ifbikes.com/

    I have no affiliation with these guys, never even heard of them until today.

    These fall into the large category of "bikes I will probably never own" -- but still, it can't hurt to look.

    Pretty snappy..... The shop where I get all the stuff for our police fleet is a high-end roadie sort of place, everytime I go in to buy parts I have to stop and admire the Merlins and Lightspeeds and other pricey goodies....

    Never get into an argument with an idiot, they only drag you down and beat you with experience.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO

    I have a friend who has an IF titanium bike. I think it cost about $5000. Awesome bike but not in my budget.

    Seems like they're trying to use that as a selling point, it says "Drag The Frame" right above it.

    Although for a proper name it should be written as "Drag: The Frame".
    I have the heart of a young boy. I got it on eBay.
