  • Furlough, 3 lockdowns and now no job forces the sale of my IF Crown Jewel in Candy Absinthe Green a 3 colour special order paint. The bike is in really lovely condition aside from a few chips in the paint which I touched up when I bought it with enamel paint. This paint is notoriously “chippable” but looks incredible. None of these chips got anywhere near the primer let alone the steel. I have regularly treated the frame with “frame saver” and it’s in great condition. The chipping has never bothered me because the paint is incredible and still looks amazing.
    Anyway that’s the only negative.

    The bike is amazing, it rides beautifully, very comfy but stiffer in the rear end with the carbon seat stays. The Reynolds Ouzo Pro forks as well as being named after my fave tipple are full carbon and looks stunning doubled up with the Reynolds back end. The bike is a real thing of beauty. Sterling silver head tube badge natch.

    Currently built up with full 9000 DuraAce except the Campag Record crankset. In the photo it has a Moots stem but this will be replaced with a 100mm Planet X stem and I will be keeping the saddle, it’s fitted with a Chris King headset and H Plus Son wheels in great condition.

    I will happily split but want to sell the frame first.

    Ideally I’m after £1500 for the whole bike, but looking for OIRO of £800 for the frame set.

  • Love the green, Interested in stem for my Indy fab if frame sells

  • Sorry to hear about your job troubles. Do you have the full geo for the bike?

  • This is beautiful and an absolute bargain.
    Right size=yes
    Afford= no 😭

  • Thanks guys. It is indeed a thing of beauty. Haven’t got the geo, I tried when I bought it but IF we’re between systems and then I decided I couldn’t be arsed to pay the. $25 !!!
    I can happily get the tape out though. What would you like ?

  • it's outstanding amd my size too
    still have the look 595 ?

  • Could I get the TT c-to-c (unless that is 540) and the headtube?

  • Amazing looking (and probably riding too) bike. Would shipping to NL be an option?

  • TT 540 c-c
    HT 138 - a bit ‘Pegoretti’ in that it’s fractionally higher above TT than under the DT - no need for spacers.

    595 long gone I’m afraid.

    Yes I’ll happily post anywhere in the world. I’ve posted tons of bikes globally over the years.

    If someone wants to discuss price there are changes I can make to make it cheaper. I’d be very happy to keep the wheels for instance.

  • Beautiful bike - if only it were bigger...

  • Hi Sean... Firstly, beautiful beautiful bike. Secondly, what's the widest tires that could reasonably fit in there? Is the 54 quoted a measure of centre to top of ST? Where abouts are you based and would you accept £700...

  • NB. I knew it was a bad idea coming/logging onto here as such mistakes always tend to make you poorer/richer (delete as apropriate)...

  • "it'll become my new commuter for an ICU ward/workplace" Entitlement is strong.

  • Yeah... Maybe I shouldn't have used that. Sounds bogus doesn't it... lol

  • NHS discount- works @ Halfords but not on lfgss💉

  • Nice! Did you buy it from a guy in York? Looks familiar.

  • Sounds like Sean has changed his mind about it or sold it already 😊... Glad he came to his senses. Noone gives up an IndyFab (well I did my steel deluxe but it was a 'needs must' but have been on the lookout always...

    GLWTS RoadieSean (my offer still stands btw)

  • Blimey ! I turn my mind for 5 minutes and the world goes nuts !!! @redefined_cycles mate I’ll drop you a DM. Happy to talk turkey.

  • Amazing. Thanks Sean mate. Look forward to it. Will try to respond as soon as I gets me a minute. You do know that if you'd put it on the IndyFab owners forum (I forgrt the name but you needs to add your serial number before being enrolled) then they'd have bittne your hands off at 1000£. Happy to wait while you check out that avenue

  • I was joking about the discount... my NHS employment got me a free gilette razor and shaving foam earlier on this year. Which was nice of them

  • Deleted... probably too much info than anyone cares or needs.....

  • As a total aside here.

    I have a spare FFP3 with Filters if you want it. Its a small and unused. Have a few spares for when i need to work in mines. Its a moldex reusable and will be tons more comfortable, but needs cleaning each shift as it aint one to throw away.

    Its yours if you want it.


  • Indy Fabs are lovely. Sorry to say again
