TiFLW :: V2 :: Wicked.

Fresh out of the Indy Fab Special Ops department: the new Titanium Factory Lightweight. Inspired by the original Factory Lightweight muscle cars that came out of Detroit in the 60's. These hot rods were defined by their high horsepower and all-out determination for maximum speed.

This is a strict racing machine, designed and engineered for sprinting, climbing and fast criteriums.

There are lots of new features packed into this model including an integrated seat mast featuring the all new IFtop secure saddle adjustment device.

Our new ISP is completely and ridiculously secure with a rider weight limit of 500lbs (all muscle of course) with bolts tightened to 10Nm.

We worked closely with aarn_wrks_dsn to do the final 3D drawings for the IFtop clamp.

When the height limit is reached a fluorescent indicator will appear in the relief hole on the back of the IFtop.



The large diameter head tube is designed to accept the new Inset 44mm headset standard.

The oversized bottom bracket shell was designed exclusively for use with the new Press Fit BB30 bottom bracket, shedding lots of weight and making it possible to stiffen the frame up considerably. This new BB in combination with the oversized head tube made it possible to use a 44.5mm diameter butted down tube. This, in combination with a few other things, delivers the maximum amount of your horsepower to the rear wheel.

Special dropouts were also made just for this model. Featuring a smaller overall size, drilled out faces and an engraved backside. Visible, both above and below, are the new single bend chainstays, stiffer and lighter than ever before.




This marks the introduction of 2011's new script decal selection. The decals are not made yet so on this bike they have been painted in. Look for them to appear as an option in the coming months.

13lbs 13oz as shown.

The TiFLW will be available for sale shortly. We are steadfastly working on finding a reliable source for the titanium tubing we need to make the head tubes. We are also working on some new fixtures that will help us to integrate this frame into our production flow.

Happy Halloween!

p.s.- Hey MADFIBER, thanks for the wheels!

Brisbane Escortskunstig fisseIf you're going to grad school to be a computer programmer, you're going to get out and get a job as a computer programmer. If you're going to grad school in the humanities, you're more likely going to end up as "a telephone operator" or an adjunct (which pays less), or maybe you'll just be unemployed. It maynot seem like it's about the money when you start out, because you're passionate about your subject and delusional about your future prospects, but it damn sure is about the money when you get to the end and can't find work after all those years you slaved away pursuing the "life of the mind."
