Another Ibis project that I've been working on. Many of the parts actually started out on my 1992 Ibis Mojo but I came across this frame when sourcing a Syncros seatpost for the 92. The XTRaMojo came with a full XTR groupset, while the Mojo came with XT or DX. So it made sense to move the XTR groupset from the 92 to the 93. I also think polished components show better with this frame colour, which is True Blue. The 92 build will be going in a different direction.

Cassette: XTR CS-M900 12-28T
Chain: Shimano HG90
Cranks: Cook Bros RSR, 175mm
Chainrings: Shimano SG-X
Bottom Bracket: Syncros Titanium (to be replaced with White Industries Titanium)

The frame came with a colour matched Mag 21, but I prefer to make it rigid with the Type II. A future step in this build will to have the fork painted to match the frame. Some other refinements are to polish the black seat clamp to match with the headset, replace the Tri-Aligns with silver Grafton Speed Controllers, and replace the Mavic 230 rims with more period correct M231 rims. I'm also thinking about have black spider on the cranks polished. The shifter housing needs to be changed from black to gray. The gray brake and shifter housing tie in with the gray background on the frame decals. I'll post some more photos after the build is closer to being finalized.

LOVELY. I also wouldn't change anything. I like the off color fork. Add pedals and off you go!

Thanks for the positive comments.

The fork is new and actually unpainted so I need to do something to protect it. The inspiration for this build started with the stem. With it being polished and having some great curves, I tried to continue that theme through the choice of components. The plan for the fork is to recreate the finish scheme that was used on the 88 Ibis Carbon concept bike like the image below. The crown will be chromed and the legs painted True Blue to match the frame.
