    Almost pulled the BIN on that myself. Worth it for the fork and stem.
    Hope you get that post out.

    Edit: nm different bike than I was thinking.

    Rumpfy: I got the one you were thinking of. Still working on the post and one of the bb cups. It's a hot mess.

    Nice score Stan. Did you get the correct fork with it.

    I haven't looked too close but it's not a Koski. It is colormatched paint so I imagine its the Ritchey Logic.

    Nice! I have either a '91 or '92 19" version in a very similar paint scheme to yours. Same Salsa stem. I had to make the noodle thingy myself, used v-brake tubing and housing stop brazed together. Now I have just to finish the wheels and then its ready to roll again.
    Good friction shifting is getting hard to find nowadays....

    A couple quick phone pictures. The front tire was shredded so I pulled it off, the rear needs to go too.

    The lowrider braze-on's on the fork and the pump holder are some extras you don't see on "normal" SS bikes. What is the serial number?

    The only number I could find is "1832" on the bottom bracket.

    I scored a similar one at goodwill of all places. Same stuck seat post, took me 3 weeks to get it out. Same Salsa stem, only slightly stuck. Same shredded ground controls.
    I paid a premium for it even at Goodwill, but it fit my son perfect. I got it finished up and my 8 year old rode it with me in the Tour de Tucson (it is a 12" white/purple fade).

    Seatpost diameter

    My brother gave me the same bike about 6 months ago. I had the same seatpost problem and finally got it out today. I used a unibit with an extension and honed it out. Fortunately, the aluminum was softer than the steel and it came out pretty easy. I had been obsessed for some time, trying all kinds of creative methods.
    My next step is to replace the seatpost, which I think is 30 mm diameter. Can anyone confirm that? It seems to measure out a hair smaller.

    My Ibis was 28.6 but that doesn't mean yours is. Good for you for getting it out.

    Mine has a TCO, 29.4 in it as well. Can't wait to get the cash to replace that POS....Thomson makes a vertical post I Like and will put my position on the bike way better as well.
