    Source for Ibis Alibi Hangers?

    Hello...through the grace of the almighty I just got my hands on a never been built black metallic Ibis Alibi frame (I believe its a 1998..has the older school down-tube stickers).

    Anyway, as I begin to compile the parts for it, I would like to stockpile some extra derailleur hangers. I've got a habit of snapping such things. Thus far I have 1) contacted Castellano Designs w/o any response; 2) Contacted Scot Nicol, and received a speedy response that he may be able to help out (but don't want to be a pain in the arse); 3) contacted Thomson (the stem and post folk) without any response on custom fabrication.

    Any other suggestions? Anybody aware of a decent machine shop that might be able to make a few? Anybody have any laying around they would like to unload? Thoughts are appreciated.

    derailleur hanger..

    Have I seen an ad in the back of Dirt Rag for someone selling hangers? Something about hangers for all models of bikes? Not certain,but it would be a rather specific niche market.

    The site is derailleurhanger.com. They dont have ibis up, but you can email them and see if they can help. Check this page out. If they cant get it, there are some places that will custom build one. A friend of mine was going to have it done for his scott vertigo, but we managed to find a hanger. Good luck.

    got dremel?

    I've made hangers out of the steel hangers that come on cheap bikes without integral hangers, shaping and drilling them to fit with a dremel tool.

    -Thanks for the thoughts to all! I'll give the derailleur hanger.com folks a ring and fire up the dremmel as a backup.

    I just talked to Mr. C a few days ago and he has them in stock(no luck on a shock for my Szazbo yet, though). He also told me (for anyone interested) that he is bringing back the Boat and Silk-Ti. He's just waiting on an order for a couple hundred feet of the ti down tube material.

    Oh, and I've got a few extra 'hanging' aroung if you get desprate.

    Thanks Szaz...I'll give them another try. Good luck on the shock hunt...and good news on the resurrection of the Silk. I had one and like a dumb-ass sold it to finance a turner. The turner serves its purpose, but I should have given that Silk ti sale some better thought. I'm thankful to have the others.

    Sorry, I should have said Bow-Ti instead of Boat. Unfortunately they are going to be the same price as the old Bow-Tis. Which makes them a better bargain (yeah right) now that titanium is going up in price. I still must have one!

    Sorry guys, I was camping out at Steve Potts' shop making the first of the SilkTi 29 and SilkTi 700's, then it was off to the bike show. I'm back now and I've got your hanger. Give me a call--800-CASTELLANO
