Custom IF Crown Jewel with S&S Couplers
J.L. is a masters racer who wasn't comfortable on his existing bikes. After a fitting, he ordered a Giant TCR Advanced frameset with Dura Ace components and we built the bike up for him.
Giant TCR Advanced. 16lbs. Fast and nimble race bike.
After a few months, he wanted a bike that he could travel with, and we ended up designing and building an IF Crown Jewel with S&S couplers. Although we knew that the bike would ride well, we were pleasantly surprised that the complete bike weighed only 18 lbs, especially since it is a steel bike with a steel fork and S&S couplers.

J. emailed us his comments about the bike from his trip. "The IF is a great bike. Never know it weighed a pound or two more than the Giant." For more photos of this and other IF's we've built, click here.
A device that keeps the chain tight on singlespeed and one-speed bicycles that weren't specifically designed for a given chain length (those bikes don't require tensioners). There are many types. The most common ones are mounted at the rear axle or on the derailleur hanger. Axle-mounted tensioners typically use bolts to pull the rear wheel back and tension the chain, while derailleur-hanger tensioners use a sprung arm with a pulley.
