    Ibis Cycles

    For the newer riders out there who have no idea who Ibis where/are have a search on the net and you'll soon discover these guys where there at the start and produced frankly the sexiest Ti frames EVER!

    Enjoy and spread the word!!!

    This could be very, very good!

    This is GREAT news! I hope they are down with the 29 inch wheels. I would definitely be in line for that!

    In a market where URTs are dead, soft-tails are ho-hum, and titanium bikes are being devalued by the likes of Zion, Airborne and XACD, I'm super curious as to where Ibis will be headed.

    hmm.. my bet: 29ers. 26 mojo ressurrected. singlespeed mojo. ti road bikes. alum. alum. cross bikes. handlebars. tires. cool funny doodads. i hope they price themselves below IF, seven and serotta. or maybe the strategy will be to reach the rich babyboomers, which will certainly exclude colker form any future ibis purchase.

    but surely you'd need a removeable face plate type stem to fit the H bar? Ibis tis bar clamp was machined from 1 lump of ti & was beautiful because of it ;D

    That's what i am hoping for.

    An ibis stem with a removable Ti plate.
    And IBIS Ti-risers, a Ti-seatpost, IBIS Ti Hot-Unit, and Ti IBIS Riderhosen,
    and Ti shotglasses, and Ti coffeemugs . . . . . .

    Moots hasn't really succeeded with their Ti-beam
    if you ask me, but that's just my humble opinion.

    ohhhhh.....Ti 29 Silk-Ti.

    Castellano showed one at interbike, with limited production, possibly ibis' first product? or FS 29er?

    New question here.

    I'm wondering : Where & Who will be making them???
    The site mentions Castellano for susp. bits but nothing of WHO'S behind the torch
    Guess we'll have to wait and see in the next update they e-mail out.

    do you mean in asthetics or sales? that stem works super well and seems to sell equally as well. the shop i work at sells quite a few of them.

    but your right, asthetically the original ibis ti stems and the non-removable face clamp designs were and are still amazing. so smooth the lines. If they could incorporate that design into a removable face clamp that would be the best of both worlds.



    all for now

    Those were welded by Steve Potts... Im not sure if Ibis will have that bike back 1-1, since the patent is Castellano's... perhaps he lets Ibis market them under a license. I guess we'll be nibbling fingernails till InterBike....

    The road frame looks tight. I'm not too sure about a 5" travel carbon frame. My 5" bike gets hammered because that's what a long travel bike is made for, not sure I'd trust a lightweight carbon frame in those situations. I could just see that boulder that bounced off my downtube the other day wreaking havoc on that thing.

    I have to say I am massively disappointed. They should have picked a new name as that thing is everything a mojo isn't...

    It makes sense that they would go all out carbon for the re launch. As much as I am dissapointed as the rest of you ibisites, I see that steel frames are not going to keep them in business at the level they are striving for. The way Im looking at it is lets hope these 2 bikes totally sell out and that the demand is sooo big that they are able to broaden out and do the cool neo-retro thing for the hard-core from wayback followers.

    Like a new version of the scorcher, a 29er steel mojo, etc......who doesent want one of those?

    Just think if all they unveiled at interbike was the products from yesteryear (steel Mojo HT, etc.....) we would all be complaining "where's the new stuff?" Lets just hope that this is indeed their strategy and that we will see steel Ibis' once more after they have hit the ground running with some super hi tek carbon offerings, that really pull in the new generation of mtb customers.

    I am a bit dissapointed that they did not introduce a carbon HT version of the mojo to go along with the FS model, I think that should have been a fairly simple thing to pull off considering how much simpler a ht is to design than a fs design.

    and I agree that bike should have a new name, Mojo does not really fit.

    Carbon 5x5? Why?

    Agree completely.

    I think carbon MTB cranks are stupid too.

    At some point, durability becomes more important than weight. I'd think by the time you step up to a 5x5 frame, you'd have long since reached that conclusion.

    I think they should make a full carbon fiber shovel. I know I get tired when I am shoveling gravel, and a lightweight shovel would make the task a lot easier.

    If it's made for 150mm forks, why's it got a float on it?

    I like it, if they make it, I would trust it. Sure, it won't have the lifespan of Ti, but I bet it rides great.
    You can knock them, but why live in the past, you can do that on the retro forum, ooops, that's where we are isn't it?
