Matt Roy's Bikes


Independent Fabrication Ti Crown Jewel -

Finally, Matt owns a custom bike.  The Ti Crown Jewel was designed to be Matt’s go-to long distance machine.  I.F.’s Matt Bracken helped Matt create a bike with a geometry that would be comfortable for the long haul but with the snappiness and weight of a race worthy road bike.  The shot-peened 3/2.5 titanium frame is custom painted with black panels and hand-painted Independent Fabrication logos and finished off with Reynold’s UL fork and a Chris King platinum headset.  After the first few pedal strokes Matt could tell that this bike was like none other he had ever ridden.  It is the most comfortable, most effortless bike he has ever owned.
