    I have seen some on the FGG - I bet you could email one of the riders there.

    ha! i'm interested in this as well.
    I'm already planning my custom moving-to-boston-commemorative-frame. IF is on the shortlist.

    There are also a few in the gallery at IFrider.com

    Yeah, I have, a friend has one. It was a light and smooth ride, but I wasn't on it too long. I was afraid of crashing, knowing that I couldn't afford to replace anything on the bike.

    i've got one. it's a custom crown jewel frame with a track rear end. this was before they started doing a dedicated track frame, so if you're looking for details there, sorry. anyways, with traditional road geometry, this bike is a tad more laid back than some of the dedicated track bikes that i've seen around, but i dig it. as far as the ride? well, it rides great. i suppose i could plagiarize a magazine review or a catalog and use words like "lively", or "supple", or even "nimble", but all i can say is that it's comfortable and the frame is light. i would say that it's a little stiffer than other steel frames that i've ridden (i also own a miyata fixxed and a soulcraft s/s mtb) but i read that that may have to do with the s&s couplers that are on there.

    Man damn. I've got some disposable bike cash, but that's awesome.
