Independent Fabrication Tungsten Electrode

Hi,
does anyone out there actually own one of these things yet? Ive heard vague talk of production delays at the IF shop, but that was a while ago.

No one has posted any at ifrider.com, the IF owners group.

what about any of you? if so, lets hear about them, get some pictures up!

Not sure if you have seen these pictures or not. They are listed in the exclusive photo's section. You have to be a member of the site to view them. There are a few other pics but these should be good enough.

I was wondering (seriously) if I could get one in the new Rynolds stainless steel tube set (930?). I'd have to sell one of the kids I teach to get it though. I've warned them the least well behaved kid will be selected for this honor.

lowcel,
I have seen those pics of that beautiful beautiful bike. Its beautiful! I also see that same bike pop up on the front page of IF's website, hanging inside an IF tent at a race perhaps.

Unsuspended,
I think you must mean that you have four IFs in general, and for that you should consider yourself very fortunate.

However, I am trying to find out specifically about the Independent Fabrication Tungsten Electrode full suspension bike; are there any out in the world, actually in the hands of people who are not IF employees?

Any reports? Any pics? I lust after this bike like you wouldnt believe. I long to live vicariously through one of you who has one.

please help. please . . .

a friend of mine called them up a few weeks ago about the new reynolds 953 tubeset. IF reports they are still testing it out and seeing what they can do with it before offering it for consumers. they said it'll cost around the same as a Ti frame.
