This is a beauty, cool


Raced NBL tracks in the 80's East Coast. Boston is home base. Wide ranging love for all things BMX. I have great memories and continue to make them. Faster than greased moose poop.

Rad, that is a sweet mtb single speed!


A bicycle is like a toothbrush; you should have one and use it often.

I wasn't sure how welcome it would be as, strictly speaking, she's just a single speed mountain bike with some BMX parts.  But man, is she fun to ride, and when I sent this photo to the guys at Independent Fabrications, the response was, and I quote, "Fricken' awesome".

Thanks for your kind words.

I lived with Steve, one of the original owners of IF after they purchased Fat Chance. Great company, great bikes.

That is one sweet bike! I really love the candy green.

I just built a Cannondale SM500 into a single-speed BMX cruiser, and I know that there are other MTBs on here that have been converted into BMX bikes.

I do have to ask: What kind of bars are those?

Sorry for the slow reply Brian.  The bar is a Fireeye Barrel 85 Calibre, long since discontinued I believe.   Here's a black one:

Re: 2006 Independent Fabrications 26

I found some Ryd Truce bars on eBay that look similar to the Fireeye Barrel 85 Calibre. I bought a set for my Cannondale.
