after waiting a whole 2 days, DHL knocked on my door and my 1997 independent fabrication deluxe was in my grubby mitts 8) . its 18" and in great condition. i am trying to avoid the temptation of just building it up with stuff ive got already as its not top drawer, this frame deserves better but i might have to as i can hear the forest calling me and its supposed to be a nice weekend weather wise :D :D

excuse my ignorance but what makes it special? It looks a bit 'normal' to me.

Thats true LGF, they do look like anything else, but the ride is superb. I havn't the correct vocabulary to describe it, but mine is so nicely balanced, acceleration is brisk, and, I dunno, just feels nice. Best frame I have had.
