Independent Fabrication Crown Jewel Ti

I purchased this frame from paceline about 2 years ago. I guess the previous owner has exact the same body measurement as I am. This bike fits me perfect and my favorite ride now. Original decal was white and I replaced them to black ones.

Now that is incredible. Love it with the Campy group especially. Always loved IF bikes. Yours is awesome.

I'm generally a fan of white graphics on ti, but man, you nailed the overall look with the black. Nicely done!

I tried few different set, Reynolds attack, Pacenti x CK R45, Zipp 404 firecrest, but I like zip 202 firecrest the most with this bike now. They run pretty fast and smooth!

Man, it took me couple hours to do it from removing and putting new ones. I guess it was worth it
