    if out there means posted in this forum and occasionally for sale on certain internet auction and classified ad sites, then yes.

    hey eric,

    yup, shipping it off to Spectrum soon to have the original paint redone with new deKals.

    should be cool, but were waiting for a Koski Fork so it might sit as just a frame for a while.

    oh, and we have a 89 Ibis Mtn. Trials here as well, but i'm not going to share pics until i get it back to the way it should be. the original owner tried to update it somewhere in the mid nineties so it's got some goofy bits on it. soon though.

    i dig the mountain trial frames for sure though.

    all for now

    Here's my 26/24 Mtn Trials. I'm the second owner, and it has hardly been ridden - definitely not like it should be ridden

    i found a frame on craigslist yesterday,,

    here is the text.
    Ibis Trials Frame - $400
    Reply to: sale-127383005@craigslist.org
    Date: 2006-01-21, 8:05PM PST


    This is a rare ibis trials frame, it has never been used before. It is one of ten made in California. If you are going to buy this it is a good buy.

    * this is in or around Sacramento
    enjoy

    I saw that one a couple of weeks ago as well. I'd love to have it, but it's a mod bike...and a little out-dated as far as trials bikes are concerned. It's worth the money he's asking, but it's a pretty specific, purpose-built bike.

    Needs a 19" rear trials wheel...

    well that is always the case with trails bikes,kind of amzing since they are so simple. but they eveolve extremlly fast and sometimes they also suffer from trend induce changes
