I have a Landshark and it is great. You can get them totally custom like the IF, but the Landshark costs a bit less. I got mine through GVH w/Chorus 10 speed for around $2500. I know in the reviews on this site, someone says the IF is stiffer, but keep in mind that you can get Landsharks in almost any kind of steel you want while the IF is 853. I test rode an 853 Lemond and easily produced chain rub. My Landshark is Dedacciai Zero Uno, I weigh 230 and I get NO flex out of my frame. My decision came down to price and I also like that no 2 Landsharks are alike. Quality on both is incredible and either way you will have a great bike.

actually, the IF has Columbus Foco and Nivacrom stays w/ the rest of the frame being 853.
