    What makes this so frame so special...$800.??

    Am I missing something here as to why this older frame is priced at $800.? Thinking maybe $150.-$200. if perfect condition. Guessing a clueless seller......

    They don't even say which it is.....
    The picture is terrible. It does look interesting with the drop out and the rock guard....., I'd like to see a better pic and know which rare ibis it is. Certainly not enough info there.

    That looks like a trials frame, and I don't think they made many of them. Apparently Scot was quite the trials rider back in the day, maybe still is....

    Ibis Trials bikes pop up on ebay every month or so. Unless that one has some historical significance it's WAY overpriced.

    That bike is one of the old mod frames, Cannondale rider Aron Chase use to ride one back in the mid 90's. It certanly is a part of history but that is a lot of $ to through down for a bike that finding parts for will be just painful

    It's not worth $800. It's only worth $800 if some crazy fool shells out that kind of dough for some old ass antiquated frame that has no business being on the road. Maybe good for hanging in someone's garage as a good conversational piece, but that's about all.
