    this is perfect. i love ibis geometry and proportion: the top tube is small isn't it? at the same the head tube is long enough for perfect technical work.
    this is my favourite bike on this forum. i won't even start on that campy group or i may have a convulsion or something..

    I agree. Some bikes just looked 'right' and Ibis seemd to be one of those few. Not too many bikes do these days.

    Wow....Campy off road group. Wow. IIRC it looked better than it worked, but still...wow.

    I never saw much need for schrader adapters, but the rest of the bike is very nice.

    How do you get stuff so clean? I don't think I have ever owned bike parts as clean as some people on here get them to look? Even brand new out of the box! As soon as I touch them to install them I at least get a finger print or two on there.

    Some of these bikes being shown here should be shot with some hairspray on the lens also, to accentuate the porn value.

    He doesn't ride it. F-cking criminal if you ask me. That bike should have dirt all over it and be showing signs of use. Yeah, it's pretty but it should be ridden, a lot too.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    Back off on the bean there a bit bro! There are lots of bikes out there that don't get ridden, it doesn't mean that their owners don't ride. I believe that is a pretty fresh looking restoration so who says it won't get ridden anyway? Certainly wouldn't recommend ghost jumping it though.

    Okay, that's just damn sexy.

    I have a purple SS awaiting a Campy build. Hopefully sooner than later That's only the second Campy Ibis I've seen, the other being the one at First Flight.

    what size and geometry is yours? ibis has a peculiar sizing that's off for me. it feels steep and cramped. maybe it's the frame i have.. it also has an unusually low BB.

    Low straddle cables, gives the brakes a bit higher leverage ratio making for a slightly spongy feel at the lever, but gives you quite a bit of modulation and stopping power. A good set up on this style cantilever arm configuration (tall like grafton...).

    Super sweet build and I dig the color combo. Classic Ibis two-tone. SS stood for Setting Sun, though. Ibis' non-Shimano build kit was the SST (Shimano Suck This).

    Yeah, I know about the modulation thing, I mean why would you want to have the straddle cables so low that they are almost touching the tires. Kind of makes a nice catch all for mud and leave, know what I mean? The lowest I would ever set a straddle cable would be so that the carrier is just at the bottom of the crown or close to the underside of the stay bridge on the rear.

    I don't know the geometry, but it's a 17". I bought it in '93 as a closeout, and I don't know the lineage well enough to know what years mine is the same as. It was a bare frame which they painted Fester Purple for me, and at 6' it barely fits me now. Back in the day it fit just fine, though. I have had to get a high rise stem to make it feel okay for trail riding.

    I Had 2 For A While

    One was grey and the other light blue.
    They both had a mirror image build to this one...Record O.R. drivetrain with an Icarus brakeset.

    I'll agree with colker in that Ibis geometry doesn't really work for me either.

    Agreed.

    I'm a advocate of riders...but if you've got a NOS or near perfect rig...it can be hard to flog.


    ...though it would be a great ghost jump bike.

    ibis are tough. they are not fragile bikes and at the same time there is nothing as elegant IMHO.

    The more I look at it, the more I'm impressed with the build and attention to detail. Everything in it's place. Subtle, but really impressive.

    1". I'm still using the purple anodized Chris King headset I had on it originally on my road bike as we speak. 29.4 seat tube, and a hand job.

    I got the bulk of my Campy parts today, too. Crankset, F/R derailleurs (I think the front is too big), Brakes/brake levers, and those crappy twist shifters. I have no idea what group the parts are from, but the brakes and levers are plastic coated, so I think they're Euclid (?).

    I plan on building it for now with XT thumb shifters, an XC Pro front derailleur if this one doesn't fit, an XT cartridge bottom bracket maybe, and thorr rims laced to an 8 speed Veloce hubset. No it's not entirely accurate, but it's as Campy as I can make it for now, and I do plan on riding it at least a little bit. I'll replace the shifters once I get my grubby little hands on some Campy thumbies.

    Brakes are probably Olympus. Euclid was top of the line until 92 or 93.

    If they're black or a light gray then they are Olympus/Centaur brakes.

    Rick: Post some pics of your parts if you want IDs. Also I've got some shifters and wheels and maybe a few other bits still hanging around here.

    sorry.. i meant length of the head tube. DON'T install a campy crankset on a shimano BB. the tapers are different.

    How does one tell what group the other components are? I can't find any identifying marks, and from what I remember last time I looked at the old catalogs online, there's not much difference in the finishes of the parts.

    Campy parts don't even have part numbers on them, only a date stamp in some instances. There are subtile differences in the groups.

    I thought that was the case with the BB. I need to figure out what legnth spindle, though. I had meant to make a separate post asking these questions, but I guess I inadvertently hijacked this thread

    Once I get my camera situation taken care of I will post pictures of the parts, because I am curious as to which ones they are.

    And the head tube is 4 1/4" long.

    There were other pictures I recall as well that showed the tight wheelbase of those early Ibis'. One was a photo of Ibis team rider Daryl Licht riding a drop bar Ibis in a very upright position. A lot of the Marin area builders made frames with tight wheelbases that were well suited to the singletrack in the area.

    nowadays everything starts at 42in and goes larger. do you know of any recent medium bikes w/ 22.5in top tube? or a 41.5in wheelbase?

    beautiful.
    especially the campy.

    took the ol' 93 mojo for a ride the other day, it's sporting one of those marz 1" steerer MX forks (90mm?), and swapped rides with a DeKerf generation, similar size and cockpit config, 100mm fox vanilla fork. The mojo was noticably faster and more stable on the downhills.

    Wicked Cool...

    I had a Szabo for a while and it was really neat. I love the Ibis spirit...but I had mucho shimano, so it lacked the cool factor. Love those cranks!
