Gotta love that Klein.

Heh thanks for voting for the Ibis :D To celebrate I'm taking it cyclo-cross racing tomorrow morning :wink:

I had originally put Easton carbon bars on it as I thought my Ibis bars, which had been shortened, were too short to use, but without bar ends they are actually ok so are now on the bike.

Thanks to Chuck Ibis the bike also now sports a brand new "titanium" decal and is waiting for its "Ibis" downtube decals and a couple others to be applied. Just need to scrape the old ones off which is most of the work ... I also did a bit of saddle customisation ...

Image
The stem (which is on my singlespeed) also looks brand new with its new decals:

The 17" steel Mojo frame I'd bought on ebay is in the safe hands of camelbelly who is planning a classy respray, some new decals and of course a retro build (including Syncros ti post and old style Ibis stem).

That's it - oh and happy new year :D

Sylvain, congrats and great work those new decalls.

On this months election: As my 50 euros ValleyRunner beater isn't listed I guess there is a reasonable chance the victory will be for CK's Everest :wink:

Ok, for the third poll in a row, I gotta go with the Ritchey Everest, too much history to deny.

CK, are those Titron pedals? Inquiring minds want to know...

keep it groovy,

rody

My bike may have zero points, but in a serious crisis mine can be remelted where yours will be totally worthless

Hey, there you go Melvin...

a little whining and you got a vote :P

Besides, the Miyata is so hot you don't need affirmation from the masses :D

I guess you are right Rody. Why bother whether or not it will become bike of the month if it is already bike of the Century??? Exactly!

I like the Ritchey, but that Klein is stunning.
