Bike of the Week: Independent Fabrication Ti Planet X

From our custom files, we present an ultra-fresh Independent Fabrication Titanium Planet X:

Finished in a rare gloss-to-matte paint job, with a full compliment of Easton accoutrements, this is a bike that turns heads uptown and down.

Built with the SRAM Force 1×11 drivetrain with a huge 10-42 spread cassette for any type of terrain (though pictured here with road tires – sure to be swapped out when the going gets off-road), and hydraulic brakes for all-weather riding.

Ghost logos in black-on-black.

Anointed with the classic Sterling Silver IF headbadge.

And some final, customer-chosen flourishes in gold and silver. As always, completed to perfection by the folks in the Independent Fabrication paint booth.

Bike of the Week: Independent Fabrication Crown Jewel

Not every bike needs to be flashy and over the top; sometimes simple is better. Meet the Independent Fabrication Crown Jewel:

Simple and clean, precision paint and just the right pop of color where needed.

Bike of the Week: Independent Fabrication Independence

The Bike of the Week is a steel Independence from Independent Fabrication.  The Independence is, technically, a touring model, though the iteration seen here has been designed for very light/fast touring with an emphasis on successfully completing its day job: fast commuting and group road rides.  The geometry is closer to a standard road bike configuration, though fitting for full racks and fenders exist for gearing up for the open road.  The parts kit includes function forward pieces from SRAM, Thomson, Fizik, Panaracer, and Chris King.  Best yet, this bike is currently for sale at the shop in the East Village!
