    I was checking out your blog yesterday. Nice. Did you swap the XT derailleur cage on the Alien ACX with an Ultegra?

    I am eagerly waiting for Ibis pictures.

    BTW, I've got a 1987 Fisher Competition, Tom Teesdale fillet brazed frameset (frame, fork, stem,) in the original Joe Murray era Fisher Team colors that I'm gearing up to sell. Lemme know if thats something you might be into. Its in good shape with just a few paint nicks on it. I'll post pics soon. Its needs a little cleanup first.

    Are those the water applied Ibis decals? If so, how hard were they to apply? Looks great!

    The decals were the dry-app ones. I was initially led to beleive they's be the H2O ones, but I guess there was some confusion. They weren't hard, but be prepared to take some time and patience, and figure out some good clearcoating solutions...

    The fork on the Bontrager is a Marzocchi Z-2...it has since been replaced my a Pace carbon (thanks Sky!)

    anyhow...more Ibis updates at http://vintage-fat.blogspot.com/
