After a summer of waiting for essential components to materialise, the Ibis Alibi frameset finally comes out of the cellar for that exciting initial trundle up the street! :D

Looking for a US-specific 'non-bling' build, so the Goldtec/Hope hubs are very temporary - need some obscure green hubs really - as are the v-brakes. The alleged NOS Syncros post had mysteriously been pre-threaded (thanks mate!) on one of the brass adjusters, but the Betsy stuff works nicely.

Not sure of the future of the bike though. Now the Ballistic has a 'welded-in' seat post, it's logical role is as my XC racer. The trouble with fixing on so much NOS stuff is that it hurts to go and get it scarred! :shock:

Neil,

looks a treat. Bikes are meant to be ridden. Something like that shouldn't be a garage queen :D
