The Ibis Cycles #253 - a custom frame with great components. Awesome condition and little to change here. A great bike from the mid 80s – just in the transition between XT700 and XT 730 – the front cantilevers are actually 730s from late 1986. This is all original besides grips, tires, chain rings and chain (as far as I know).

Why am I selling? I have something cool in sight.

Size: Suits me well at 182 cm. 20” ish seat tube, 22.5” top tube as most Ibises. More measurements upon request.

This bike was also used with a set of IRD bars that was purchased around the same time. The buyer can choose whether he/she wants IRD or WTB bars. The WTB has a lof of sweep at 25 degrees, the IRD is more moderate at 12 degrees (see picture). The original owner told me about the bars:

Also the Wilderness Trail Bikes handlebar is the original that they came out with. Mark Slate design I believe, as Steve Potts and Charlie Cunningham were, especially Charlie, committed drop bar guys. Steve later so. Anyway this was their original flat bar with 25 deg. bends.

I have the original Biopace rings as well if the buyers want them.

I’d like €2850 shipped for this, please bank transfer since Paypal gives a shitty conversion rate. That includes a good folder of the original documentation as well.
