    Classic Ibis pictures

    Hey guys
    Just posted some neat Ibis pictures on our web site. Scot sent us a handful of pictures and we posted 2 of the Ti/carbon bike, a Ti uptube tandem ($10,000 retail) and a great picture of Scot in 1982 on Ibis #7. Here is the link http://www.firstflightbikes.com/ibis.htm

    Great action shot of Scott! Love the ti/carbon. Does anybody know where it is now?

    Out of interest this is my own Ibis, the frame was apparently used in some of the US magazine reviews and it cames with a one inch steerer. Frame weight on my kitchen scales is 2.8 lbs and it climbs like a goat!

    One day I'll figure out how to post pictures straight here ...

    When did they change the format for uploading pics? This new one sucks! I figured it out, but still, the old way is better. Just go to the top of the window and click upload photos. Its got instructions in there. When you finish, it give you a url. Click on the little yellow square withe the mountain and sun in it (On the same line as bold italics and underline), and paste the url. The rest it does for you.
    And here is Joe's Ibis:

    Ti/Carbon bike

    Scot has mentioned several times that he has one of the Ti/Carbon bikes and has been putting it back together.
