Independent Fabrication Single Speed Offroad Singlespeed

5/5 (2 Reviews)

Product Description

When Phil Wood sought a manufacturer to produce their now famous Piss Off titanium singlespeed, they came to Independent Fabrication. To reach their goal they needed to team up with a progressive titanium framebuilder with some of the highest standards in the industry. When they said We want the highest quality titanium frame available, we gave it to them, creating the most sought after singlespeed frame ever made. The chassis is based on our Ti Deluxe platform, and just like the Piss Off, our Ti Deluxe Singlespeed (with the disc brake upgrade) comes with a Phil Wood Eccentric Bottom Bracket (EBB). We also manufacture our own custom forks in house, so you can opt to have a rigid, suspension adjusted, disc brake equipped fork made to mimic the build height and offset of almost any suspension fork you desire. This bike is shown with an IF rigid disc fork that is adjusted to the build height of a 100mm travel suspension fork and painted to match the frame.

Strengths:    Handling and Craftsmanship

Weaknesses:    Paint Durability.

Bottom Line:   
All IF's are custom, so need I say more. This bike was made with a 29" front wheel and 26" rear. The bike goes where you point it, so the handling is outstanding. I prefer the 26" rear for quicker exceleration and it's easier to turn over on the long climbs. The steel frame has enough give to soak up the light bumps.

Strengths:    Fantastic fit, welding is artwork, finish (shot peened Ti) is beautiful, custom steel fork makes a full rigid ride as plush as possible. Can ride for hours on end and days in a row and there is no physical wear and tear on the body

Weaknesses:    Price and stickers tend to chip easily on the shot peened Ti

Bottom Line:   
If you have the cash there is no better ride to throw a leg over. If the budget is tight skip the beers during the week to save the money needed, nothing beats this ride!
