    Official Ibis Picture Thread

    Picture Thread starter which was suggested by another forum member.

    Good stuff, Ibis is. Favs are the Scorcher and the Ti Mojo. The two Ti frames I've been looking for are the Fat and Ibis. I found an Ibis first. My Ti Mojo follows, next post.

    FYI, other info:

    96 Ibis Ti Mojo, small

    (This was originally posted at Retrobike. I'm in the process of modifying the build though)

    Nicely crafted titanium frame acquired from an original owner. The detailing and build of these frames is quite impressive. I'm not 100% sure of the year, but it could also be a 97.

    I went for a silver/gray-biased build for the components, de-NIB'ing quite a few parts. I'll likely swap the DKG for a silver version once I find one.

    The Mag-21 SL has the classic paint loss problem but I like the patina it gives to the bike.

    The Magic Motorcycle crankset was a no-brainer, once-in-a-lifetime purchase. This is the second version with a low 1x serial. Beautifully detailed.

    Well, mine is the oldest so far, but probably owned for the shortest amount of time by the current owner. Not sure of the year, Scot Nicol said maybe 1990, but based on the serial number of one of the bikes on First Flight's website I would say more likely 1991 or even 1992.

    The bike is a size too small but rides great. The post may look really jacked up but it is actually only 1/2 inch higher than the post on my other bikes.

    It is what I would call a 10 footer in that if you get real close it shows its battle scars but from far away it looks nice.

    You seen this picture before. The post has since been replaced with a silver Thomson and the bar will soon be replaced with a flat bar. Eventually a rigid fork as well.

    Nice. Did you change some stuff around on the SS? Different saddle and post?

    Whats the story on the serial numbered RD?

    I need some of those RM-3 bars...

    Mr K

    Those are great frames. I had one 10-11 years ago and really liked it. Very solid and confidence inspiring handling. I liked the machining on the front of the chainstays. We need a picture of that. I'll see if I can dig up a picture of mine.

    I did change the post and seat, but you've got to have a freaky weird eye for details to notice. The previous post was also an IRD, but the step is closer to the clamp area. The seat on there now is a gray perforated Specialized Pro Long. Previously, the seat was a smooth black leather Specialized Pro Long.

    The R/D was a custom Shimano made short cage for team riders. The silver guard keeping the chain on the tension pulley is riveted on.

    You missed the special washers under the nut on the rear brake, though.

    RM-3 bars...hmmm.

    It has clearly been crudely touched up (spray paint) in places and in other places the paint looks excellent. Unfortunately a previous owner took a body hammer to the right stay to increase chainring clearance other than that the frame is A-OK.

    By this point the SS was a US made frame, thought still entry level Ibis, correct?

    Well, Scot's got the little black book of frame numbers, but 1743 would seem to indicate 1993 to me if FFB's got a #1101 from '91 and a #1586 from '92. Mine is #1108 and I bought it in '91. The year of your decals would seem to match the serial number.

    Not necessarily. I believe the Avion marque was discontinued after the 1990 model year. In '90, they had Avion (Japanese production made), Avion SS (Sebastopol made) and Custom. In '91, there was just the SS and maybe still the custom. I wouldn't necessarily use the term "entry level" but Ibis' base model. It was possible to also get a custom SS, which is what mine is. I requested a 24" top tube on the 20" frame size, rollercam bosses on the C/S, and the brazed-on seat binder. I reamed out the bb shell and installed pressed in the bearings.

    I think Scot probably has bigger things to worry about than what some punk ass with an old SS wants to know about his frame. I was just tickled he responded at all.

    Yeah, entry level was kind of a crude choice of words. Kind of sounds cheap, especially considering there was only about $100 difference between the SS and the Mojo.

    So would you guess a 92/93 SS is Japanese or Sebastopol/US made? From reading the 90(?) brochure the Avian was Japanese and finished in their shop but the Avian SS was made at their shop. And the 92 brochure doesn't seem to suggest either way. Frankly it really doesn't matter much as the finish is still outstanding whether Japanese or US made.

    Your SS is outstanding by the way.

    It was pre-SS. Looking back, it was a cool bike.

    I don't know, it didn't do anything for me. Absolute tank of a bike. I probably should have given it more trail hours but at the time I was more interested in the parts on it and flipping the rest.

    Uncle Fester

    We got this bike from the original owner in truly perfect condition. Never bought a cleaner used anything ever.

    I swapped the wheels and shifters so I could have 8 speed rapid fire in place of the deore thumbies and seven speed.

    I have the original wheels for sale and the brake levers and thumb-shifters went to Smurf hunter for his project.

    Love to ride this bike on pavement and off. It's especially fun with the BOB trailer, which makes it about four feet longer than my Cherokee.

    Could you post a close up of the stem, pretty please? I think Ibis stems are the best looking. What's modified polish?

    Incidentally, does anybody know the history behind the Ibis stem design? I seem to recall that they were originally made by Gary Helfrich at Arctos Machine, who sold the design to Ibis. Not sure where I got this info, though. Probably from the darker recesses of my mind, most likely!

    I'm afraid to post this with the SS built as a city bike. Actually all three have a fair amount of changes from this pic (not that you can see too much). Don't worry, a Campy OR build patiently awaits.

    This site has some Ibis stem images:

    ... I believe the owner is a member here too.

    The previous owner of my Ibis stem heavily dulled the shiny finish, hence "modified polish". The flatness visually works though with the corroded Mag-21 Ti legs, otherwise it's kind of a bummer.

    Because Ibis owners are too busy riding their bikes to prowl internet forums.

    Vintage Dropbar Ibis

    Here's another one for you vintage Ibis fans, an early dropbar Ibis dating from around 1987.
    • Koski Duratrac fork
    • Specialized dropbars with LD stem
    • Modolo brake levers / Suntour Barcon shifters
    • WTB Classic Greaseguard hubs
    • IRD seatpost / Hite-Rite
    • Selle Italia Turbo Perforated saddle
    • Suntour Roller Cam rear brake
    • Deore XT crankset / Suntour XC Compe pedals
    • Phil bottom bracket

    I am the original owner and have had some great times on this bike. With a little luck, I hope to be riding this one for another 22 years!

    Yup, really hot. Don't ever sell it, as I'm sure you've been asked to. I have one similar a few doors down from me.

    Mine and you have seen

    Mine is a 95 team paint scheme with minor touch ups and is in use as a daily rider for dog runs in the neighborhood. I know, why beat it when there are cheapies around. Well, I don't have any cheapies.

    Too many bikes, and just enough time to ride them.

    Beautiful Ibis, Nightshade. I remember your Ritchey as well, which was also a beaut!

    Love it!

    Just curious, do you remember your reasoning for going with the Koski fork vs the Type II at the time of purchase? Either fork is a great choice.
