    The original one had a little more rise.


    But those stems don't exactly grow on trees. it was a miracle (with the help of Datawhacker) to actually find one......

    According to my high-rez Colkervision®, The cassette matches, chain length too.
    The label/housing/saddle on the other hand
    There are always other "little things" too......

    Maybe when I find some pedals. : (

    That's a real beauty, but you've gotta ditch them blue pulley wheels. And the brakes. I have just the spot for them.

    I think it'd be cool to add serial numbers. I think G's is 575 and mine's 441.

    Ya, I need to swap out that pulley...it was on there when I got the bike.

    Not sure about the brakes...not sure which version of the Suntour's they are. Probably just put XT U-Brakes on there.

    that's a 24/26 bike. Looks like Ibis mtn trials but w/ the hand job.

    Aaah, so it is. I figured it was just camera angle/bike lean. Thank god for Colkervision!

    That would explain the slotted drops on the Bontrager fork too. Cool.


    So perhaps a Mountain Trials sent back in for a freshening up....getting new paint/decals/handy....

    It is a 26/24 and when I got it I thought mtn trials. Serial number 2665 would say mojo or some kind of a custom?

    It does have cantilever mounts, I would really like to know what bike it is. I have looked through all the different Ibis models and no luck. Here is a couple more pictures I would like to know what you think.

    what size seatpost is it? MOjos usually have 28.6 Mtn Trials had the 29.4, i think.. but there is one handmade in cali by Ibis and another mtn trials made in japan, a production model.
    Looks like it's US made due to the unusual brake mounts. Could be custom.

    Yeah- all of the Mt. Trials I've seen ran a 29.4 post but they had ubrake/RC mounts on the frame and no handjob so I don't know what you've got going on there. Great parts on there so if you bought it for a reasonable price you did well.

    #2665 would mean 1992 or maybe 1993 as year of construction. All used decals look newer to me (maybe mid-90s), so I guess a later cantilever-brake-conversion with added handjob cable hanger and repaint/new decals on a original MountainTrials.

    Classic Ibis

    I saw this in Manhattan today and could not help but take a few pics. The owner was selling some stuff on the side of the road and hung his stuff on it. He took me for a little tour and told me it had the original paint job and Campagnolo components.Official Ibis Picture Thread-image.jpgOfficial Ibis Picture Thread-image.jpgOfficial Ibis Picture Thread-image.jpg

    I suppose I should add my '90-ish SS to this thread. I threw it together this spring just for a test ride, but decided I liked it so much that I was just going to ride it through the summer and worry about the paint and parts in January. I'll post a better photo later, this is all I have for now.

    Frame only of mine which is dragging on as one of my longest builds, though another major part has taken a step forward this week.

    1996 Hakkalugi

    First post and thought I'd share some pics of my Hakkalugi.

    I set it up with A Clockwork LD stem, XTR drivetrain and hubs, Paul's brakes and seatpost, Brooks Saddle, Slasa Woodchipper Bar.

    The fit is compact and upright. Feels good in the drops, and handles well on the trails I've been on so far.

    Thanks for looking!

    Nice bike, looks like a threaded fork and the stem is a clamp on? How's the clearance with those tires?

    Sweet!! Looks like that one would be a blast on the trails with those BG tires, great job on the build.

    Anyone know much about this IBIS SS? I had comically stumbled on this older post about this exact bike from a couple years back. The guy I got it from bought it from the other person that posted in the thread below. He had it for a while and was working on getting the seatpost out but was unable to and broke it off in the frame about 7 different ways.

    Frame has a small dent in it so I might just say screw the paint and get the post out efficiently and braze in some filler for the dent. What can folks tell me about the SS model. Would this have been originally a DX equipped bike (that is what was on it as I got it)? Where would it have been made?

    THe SS was a top of the line frame and could be built anyway you wanted.. it was somehow the west coast equivalent of the Yo Eddy: stout, big diameter tubes and a short wheelbase making for a bike that could work out radical moves in radical terrain. That and the usual Ibis flair showing in the wild paint scheme.

    Very nice to know that, many thanks Colker. It needs some help but I figured it very worthy of it, especially since I picked it up in basically the condition in the picture minus the seatpost for a $100. I really like the fork on it..... looks to be a Logic fork but it actually has pannier mounts in the middle as well which I really like for functionality.

    Only bummers are the post being stuck and the dent. Rodriguez here in town told me though that they thought they could heat out the old post and also braze some filler in the dent for an hour of shop time which wouldn't be too bad. I can do all the finishing work on what they braze in so that it will be smooth without needing any putty in it and then will just need to figure out what to do paint wise on it. I have a really nice Walcom automotive paint gun with a fine tip so even tossing around the idea of just doing the paint myself too.....

    Ibis paint from the era is mythical. See if you can just repaint the affected area in .. white or yellow in a dart like fashion and preserve the original.
    That's a very cool bike.

    Yeah. Shame to loose that paint. With so many stuck seat post threads out there I'm sure you can save it. And the dent? Just a battle scar.
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    This is one of those "not your normal stuck" posts. Its either going to be hacksaw method..... which will potentially work except the post is WAYYY down in the frame so not sure how well its going to work or some other paint ruining method. Going to try to save the paint by going the cursing, sweating, cursing some more route but at some point I might just have to bite the bullet on it.....

    Official Ibis Picture Thread-photo-1-1-.jpgOfficial Ibis Picture Thread-photo-2-1-.jpgOfficial Ibis Picture Thread-photo-3.jpgI just acquired this old ibis bike if anyone has any idea of age.

    It has XT shifters (7 speed thumb) and derailleurs.
    Bullseye cranks with what looks like some ghetto spacing on the non drive side.
    Onza little ring. Not sure of the others.
    XT hubs
    Ringle quick releases
    XT seat post
    diacomp levers and what looks like a really crappy front brake. Rear is a U brake but haven't figured that out yet.

    Serial number (under the BB) would tell more about its age. The headtube reinforcement rings should make this a Custom model. Is that paint originial?

    Paint is original as far as I know. I got it from a fried who got it from the original owner who was an old guy. Also has a gary fisher from the same time frame that was his wife's.

    Serial is 247

    Picked this up today. Was told it's an Ibis bottle holder. Can't find anything on the interwebs about it. Maybe someone can shed some light on it.

    Front brake has no writing on it. Rear has some sort of brace covering it. Says interlock and IRD on a brace.

    Does this bike have any appeal to anyone?

    Wondering about its collect ability.

    Love it. That is what I want to do to the ibis I got.

    Another thing on the bike I got. Interesting it has two water bottle cages on the down tube
