No idea if this is a good deal
 
so more of a PSA. Someone on slowtwitch if selling an Indy Fab Crown Jewel Lightweight with Record, size 58, for $3k plus shipping. The ad states low miles.

Unless like me most bikes are too tall if they are long enough, and also will have too much stack when long enough, or I can get a short TT and good standover at the expense of a stack of spacers and stupid long stems, especially since the market has also went mostly pretty damn short reach on handle bars.

And I am old and use much less drop than I once did.

So you can afford to be elitest about it it sounds like, all due respect, not all are.

I totally get that mostly for the industry it is good, less in between frame sizes need to be in lineups.

When I got my 1st sloping frame from Carl Strong 19 years ago, I was not nuts about my road bike looking like a mountain bike. That evaporated quickly when the frame design had obvious benefit for my frame design mother nature gave me.

All due respect et al.

Ad states 8 miles, someone wasted bit of coin...

I like how the Indy PDF shows the toe overlap, not seen that on a frame build spec sheet before.


Is that typical for IndyFab, 72^ HTA and 5CM rake on a short CS/WB/Front Center bike???

Yeah, that really low mileage stood out

I'm not sure about the geometry. Posted only b/c I realized the poster didn't post the same ad here, where appreciation for hand-made metal frames is higher.

Great off-the-peg carbon frameset option if anyone is chasing a highly regarded, cheap Paris-Roubaix winning frameset:

(brand new Giant Defy SL framesets with ISPs, and Giant warranty too, apparently)

RichTheRoadie 02-23-2020 12:32 AM

This is cool too, if slightly pricey:

(Low alu race frame in 56cm with a taller head tube)

That sure is a beautiful ride. A Ti gravel at 1K seems like a good deal if it fits.
I also love the color.

From the description:

You are bidding on a Kelson Gravel Frameset, properly called the R-A-D by Kelson — “Road, Asphault, Gravel.”

Hmmm...I guess R-A-G doesn’t sound as good.

Every stock 56 geo frame I have owned the HTA was 73.5 or 73.0

IIRC colnago likes a 72.0 HTA so maybe IF went that way? I dont know enough about how that 72.0 gets accomadated via FC, trail, WB etc....

It is QR in the rear. Deal killer for many people jumping into discs.

Appreciating that paint depends on if you are the beholder BUT this is one of the early ciavete where Round spent a lot more time hand painting than the $500 upcharge would have suggested. Also the ouzo pro is the fork Dario spec'd for that frame.

I would be all over that if I was in the market. Note to prospective buyers: Peg 56.0 has a tall head tube.
