Tranny
« on: September 23, 2009, 07:13:16 PM »
My Ibis Tranny frame arrived today!!  Or as BillT likes to call it, Thai Lady Boy.
 
Big thanks to Dave, the owner of The Bike Shop in Winter Haven for his willingness to become an Ibis dealer to get this frame for me.
 
The pictures on Ibis' website, and the picture I am going to post do not do the paint job justice.  It's f***ken awesome.  Sorry about the crappy iphone pics, but I did not have a camera with me.  And my hands were shaking as well, I was so excited.  I'll post more later, and as I get the components assembled for the build.  Oh yeah, sorry Catman, it's still not orange.
 
I was originally going to build it up with gears, but as drb81 so politely pointed out...."you already have a f'ing geared bike."  So, it will be built as a SS.  I have most of the components in mind, just a few details to work out.
 
If anyone is interested.  http://www.ibiscycles.com/mountain/tranny/

Looks very nice..

I did notice one issue though, they forgot to send you the rear shock. You might want to call them and get that worked out.


^Me, while riding a Turner.

It'll only be cool if it is a SS. ;)  Seriously though, that looks pretty pimp.

Thanks J.  Not sure if I'm up for San Felasco SS yet.  We'll see.
