I have come down to the Moots VaMoots or IF Crown Jewel Ti Frame. Both bikes are rare as Seven is starting to get popular. What do you think?

I love my steel custom crown jewel. A unique bike that not many people have, and you can pick your own paint!!!!
just my 2 cents

I've been riding a Vamoots since March and love it. If rare is what you're looking for, Moots is- at least in New Jersey. I ride with serious long time riders and very few have ever heard of Moots, much less seen one. Most people don't pay any attention to it. Then at the rest stop I see people checking it out and invevitably they are quite impressed. But the ride is the thing and the ride is fantastic- better than the Litespeed I moved up from.

the IF is custom, so I guess the real question is how does the Moots stock geometry work for you?

I've never seen the IF, but I've never heard a bad thing about it. That being said, I own a Vamoots and you would never regret going with the Moots. The ride is fantastic, the finish is second to none and if you need custom, it can be had for an extra $350.

A few months ago, I test rode three bikes over a weekend: Serotta Legend Ti, Seven Axiom Ti, and Indy Fab Ti Crown Jewel. I loved all three bikes but went with the Indy Fab because the fit and finish were a notch above the other two. I ordered a Ti Crown Jewel and must have communicated with the company (via phone and email) about eight times, and they were always helpful, friendly, and patient. Now that I've been riding my bike for about two months, I'm thrilled with the decision and haven't regretted it for a second.

You want unique? I've done about a dozen club rides since I got the bike, and I've seen only one other Indy Fab.
