    Ibis Bow-ti photo shoot (picture heavy!) - for those who are interested :-)

    Seeing as it was kind of a sunny day, I went out into the park to take a few snaps of my recently acquired Ibis, hopefully these show off it's attributes to some effect, enjoy












    a few more can be found HERE (Flickr) if you're interested

    Still pondering what to do with her (for some reason it's become a 'she' in my mind, perhaps because I'm a tad besotted?)

    This bike is in amazing shape i can not belive that all the parts seem to be in mint condition from your photos. I know it may not be my place but how much did you pick that up for by the spec and the condition I would think the person who sold it to you would have wanted a couple of grand for that. That bike in the day built like that would of been around six grand or more. I envy so much

    I think it was owned by a bike shop owner or something like that and he never built it up and had all the parts in boxes and passed away. Bike was then built and sold.

    yep, that's the story... I paid about the same for it as a Mojo SL frame here in the UK, not a bad deal I don't think, especially considering some of the rare retro bits on it!

    Beauty! Maybe the all time bicycle suspension engineering marvel of form, function, and finish.

    I just saw the shifters and derailleurs in MTBR Classifieds for $500.00. I guess he doesn't like red, white and blue.

    Saw a Bow Ti pressed into townie duty in Telluride the other day. Pointed it out to my new-to-biking friend and he thought it was wild.

    I do like the set, but they don't match the bike at all and they're quite valuable from what I can find out, so they're for sale if a patriotic American would like them
