This just arrived 30 mins ago :-) Its the most beautifull thing i have ever seen (not including the wife and sprogs)

New, Steel and painted platinum, yum,

This is the crash replacement that IF have kindly made me after the Ti Deluxe that I got off Dr S unfortunatly cracked.

The size and Geo are basis on the Cotic Soul, Cy from Cotic very kindly sent IF the Soul design then I asked for a few alterations like slightly longer top tube and an inch more seat tube. I have had 2 Souls and they are great.

Aren't bike people brilliant :-)

Its going to be built up once I decide to with Silver or Black finishing kit.

Build Plan:
1 X 9
Fox
Chris King Headset, BB, hubs
Middleburn Cranks
Thompson Stem and Post
WTB Saddle
Brakes Magura Louise or XTR?
Rubber: 2.35 High Rollers

Any suggestions?

Stunning :P

Theres so many paint and detail options buying a new IF but this is just beautiful. I'd be tempted to mount it on a wall and just stare at it but it deserves better than that. Looking forward to the build :D
