My Indy Fab Crown Jewel

Hello All,

I've finally finished up a few things on this bike and now it is 110% sorted and ready to rip this spring. That being said I wanted to share!!

I started riding seriously last year and after 4000 miles, 50 pounds of lost weight, and 10 bikes later I settled on this rig. I am completely obsessed and can't wait to get back out there this spring. Here are some build details and specs, enjoy a few photos!

Independent Fabrication Crown Jewel 56cm
- black cherry metallic
- Steel IF fork
- Full Dura Ace 9000 mechanical rim
- 50/34 172.5 11-28t
- Zipp 303s
- Conti GP4000s
- FSA SLK compact bar
- FSA SLK OS-99 stem
- Lizard Skin 2.5mm bar tape
- Chris King headset in gold
- Jagwire braided lines in gold
- Thomson masterpiece seatpost
- Fizik Antares R1 VS Evo braided carbon
- Look pedals
- KMC gold chain

17.5 pounds with pedals and cages

Looks like a great bike and build! I dig the bling on the brown frameset.
