    I believe the seatpost size is 28.6mm as for value I have no idea. I imagine you could take look eBay and see what they are selling at.

    based on the decals and the lack of a canti hanger (hand job) in the rear, I'd guess that'a pretty recent one. ibis was making bikes until 2001 (or even 2002? I don't remember...) so my guess is that it's from the last couple years. I've got a 97 hakkalugi and it's got older decals than that. it's probably not worth more than seven or eight thousand dollars for the frame. if you're willing to trade, i've got this bridge.....

    naw man, just ride it and enjoy it. I wouldn't bother with ano blue unless you particularly like the look. not "period correct" for the frame and the ugliest of all ano colors, IMO.

    Edit: Yeah, and seatposts: look around, they're out there. good thing about the somewhat odd size is that the posts don't bring much money. SC bullit uses 28.6 as well, if I remember correctly. I got a thomson on ebay for pennies....

    i'm not gonna get to crazy with the blue not like my red bike. i'll score a blue sid for it at least and probably go with polished everything else.

    Hurray!! For the love of ibis!!!

    Handjob was an option, so it is possible it would be an earlier ibis, 99-00, made in sonoma, if thats the case. what does the sticker on the left side say? It'll tell you where it was made?

    Whats it worth? who knows, there have been a few frames in the high 300's but it's only worth what someone would pay.
    Keep it, build it up and ride it. Ibis mojo is one of the best riding steel bikes you'll ever run into, and they are always gorgeous.
