    Old-skool Ibis - Bow Ti frame value?

    Hi Ibisians,

    Just wondering... do you guys know the approximate 'going rate' for a mint-condition Bow Ti (I think it's a medium from 1999 perhaps?)

    cheers

    I am pretty sure that John Castellano will still build you one. I forgot where I read that so I may be wrong. I'll bet it would cost quite a bit more than you can sell yours for though. I would guess yours could sell for $2-3k depending on the condition and where you sell it.

    I know he's still building the soft-tail models and the URT in aluminum. He offers custom Ti models of the soft-tail too. He did at least about four years ago when I Iast spoke to him, but I'm sure things may have changed since then.

    I have a 2001 (or 2000) 26er Ibis Silk-Ti and I have absolutely no idea why Castellano's bikes aren't more popular with the 29er, single speed and "hard-trail" racers. It's actually mind boggling to me that people are paying for custom ti bikes that are not a soft-tail when they could have an amazing soft-tail bike in ti custom made for them. I think Steve Potts was doing the welding for him a few years ago and may still be doing it, so I still don't understand.
