I sent the frame back to IF for a check up and a repaint, built it up and rode it three times, so basically new paint. It's a really great bike but it's just too small for me.
So, up for sale, frame, fork, King headset and matching 110 mm Salsa steel stem for $1200 shipped. Or make an offer or trades. I have a weakness for steel frames but in a 58. Oh yeah, it has a 56cm seat tube and a 56.5 cm top tube center to center.

That is super nice. Good luck on the sale

deal of the day'

Thanks for the accolades, this frame certainly deserves them. Because this frame uses a somewhat odd seatpost size I will include a nice black 26.8mm Dean post.

I've had some offers but it's still available.

It's still available. Spring time and a new bike? Well there you go.

Excellent looking paint. I would also call this a bargain.

Here's a little more info for those vacillating:
The fork has a 1 inch steerer and will allow a 25mm tire but that's about it, the rear has plenty more room but I've never run anything larger then a 25.
Saddle height in the photo is 77cm and the reach from the nose of the saddle is 57cm to the center of the bars with around 8 cm of drop to the top of the bars.
BB drop is 6.8 cm.
I don't have a geo sheet, I'm not the original owner but you might try contacting IF.
The serial # is 725C956C
I hope that helps.

Too small for me.

My arm could have been twisted, as I would love one of these to stay at my parents' house outside of Austin.

Would be an incredible vacation bike without shipping one down twice a year.

5 years since I posted this. As they say, tempus fugit. Still for sale. Still a good deal?

Bump for a wonderful bike. Have one and the ride is sublime.

Rode it 3 times after repaint per Jan 2013 post - time of pictures posted.

8.5 years later - any current pictures.

Sad to say it looks exactly the same, it's been hanging in my garage since the original post.
