    just an introductory Hi and my bike

    I used to belong ages ago and just getting back around again.

    Bike is a late 90's Ibis Mojo made in Sebastapol with Tange prestige and a hand job.

    It sits mostly as made with the exception of the seat post seat, bars, shifters and wheelset.

    Wheelset is HED. hedlight/tailight bought around 1999. Front wheel is radially laced Ti spokes with nipples on both sides instead of a spoke bed. Rear is hybrid radial Ti and conventionally laced drive side with butted stainless spokes.

    I haven't been able to find much info about these wheels and would appreciate any info anyone has.

    Welcome, but your bike isn't vintage.

    I'd say that it is. And yes, welcome.

    I forgot anything made before 2005 is considered vintage now. My mistake.

    Any bike that comes with a hand job is a good bike.

    Fixed. I'm married, but you could use other words.

    lol. I thought the hand job would qualify it as vintage as a reference to canti brakes.

    How about this? Is this one vintage enough?

    1952 Columbia.

    Indeed, welcome and thank you for sharing! My impression is that this is beyond the VRC timeframe by a few years.
    Good friction shifting is getting hard to find nowadays....

    If a late '90s Ibis is not classic, what is?

    Some of the components aren't so "vintage" or "classic" but to me one of the last frames is the steel bike era.

    Welcome back, nice bike and IIRC those wheels were a Ringle/HED set that was sold for maybe a year or two.

    Cool, thanks. The rims are sun sub iv. I was told that the hubs are shimano internals, but I'm not sure of that. Did Ringle make the hubs?

    Closer pic may help to ID, but I'm thinking yes. Shimano didn't build the internals maybe the freehub body. Only way to tell is to ride it, if it falls apart in a year it was made by Ringle.

    lol! Must be shimano as they've held up for over 10 years. No racing stress, but some weekend warrior stuff.
