The crankset is Hershey - the rings came with it, so I cannot vouch for authenticity on the drillings.

Control Tech stems have double bolt fixings at both ends, the Ibis has single bolts and a very suave finish. Ti remains out of the question due to current prices!

Box levers (now considered too trick for this build!) are to be swapped for some Real's in green at the weekend, then final set-up can be achieved.

More pics of this Ibis in the Gallery.

An Ibis Owners thingy would be good - how many do we reckon there would be in the UK? Perhaps Stif, as importers of the droolworthy new carbon FS could promote it??

Tempted by this too:

Hi Neil,

That piece is AWESOME !!!

There was one for sale in Switzerland about 1/2 year ago. Very tempting, but I didn't went for it. Stupid? Probably, but I have to set some limits.
