    Help with a frame identification?

    A friend has a no-label conversion (aluminum, vert dropouts) that has a diamond cross section down tube. The serial number starts with "IF"

    Any ideas as to the make?

    If that's the case, I would cry myself to sleep.

    That was my first guess, but I know nothing about them. This frame doesn't look like anything special, kinda Trek-ish with ugly welds.

    AFAIK, I.F. doesn't/hasn't done anything other than steel and the rare ti frame. Never heard of them doing any alu stuff, even as one off jobs. I'd highly doubt it's an I.F.
    I believe the clouds in my coffee more than the weatherman on t.v.
