1988 Ibis

The "Big Pink" Ibis as ridden by Capt. Dondo at the 2006 Crossroads Bike Festival.  This bike has been ridden, repainted and had various parts come and go so it is definitely not "original" circa 1988 but it is still be actively ridden so that is OK.  The front wheel is a prototype Ringle hub with Ti bladed spokes that is pretty similar to the early Cronometro/Cane Creek wheels.  Since the Hand Job wasn't available when this bike was originally made, it was added during a repaint in the 90's.
