...yet (camera is at home). Was tempted to go with the 'It's arrived...!' heading, but a change will do you good! :)

The brand spanking new old stock Ibis Alibi '97 frame has landed in my office (in Team Orange), along with a ti bar, ally stem and long sleeve shirt.

Now the fun starts - suggestions for appropriate bolt-ons required!

There's something about Ibis bikes...soooo cool...urm, it's gotta be a pretty sympathetic build...XTR seems to be the order of the day at the moment....not too sure about forks though...I'm a rigid fan myself :)

Goes without saying you've gotta get an Ibis Ti post

Judy SL you say - would that be an actual '97 model year to suit the frame, brand new, never installed etc.???!!! What would be the chances of that...

Ooooh, the guilty pleasures of opening one's ebay booty!

Now in for the lonely NOS Alibi frame are NOS Judy SLs and a Betsy 10th Limited Edition NOS Gripshift 8sp... :)

Also going with these Carambas (always admired them back in the day) - need to get them stripped and anodised blue. Anyone know where I can get this done?

The search continues for an appropriate wheelset....

Neil
