Ian at Icarus is a man of many talents. When you are a master at fillet brazing, making the switch from small-diameter, vintage-inspired bikes to modern, lightweight race machines is easy. When Chris hit up Ian about building him a race bike for the 2011 Philly Bike Expo, he had one thing in mind: performance. After selecting the right tubeset, the bike was under way. This thing is 16lbs complete, has some of the smoothest fillets and sports one bitchin’ paint job.

Simply stunning! That fork was a pain in the ass to shoot without making it blow out but I’m really stoked on how these photos came out. Check out more here, at my Flickr!
