Sully's Ibis Lugi





I have been meaning to post this Ibis on the blog for quite some time but fortunately things at the shop have been busy and I haven't found the time until now. This is another hand built Ibis cross bike that belongs to Colonel's employee Randy Sullivan (better known as "Sully"). Sully bought this beauty in 1997 when he was an employee of Ibis Bicycles. The bike is currently set up as a single speed with 42 x 17 gearing and an old Shimano Biopace chainring. The frame is constructed from Ibis butted cromo tubing. Ibis called their tubing "Moron" tubing because the butts put "more on the ends". Check the frame decal on the seat tube in the photo. Sully's favorite thing about his machine is the Ibis hand built titanium stem. The Syncros Ti post and Brooks saddle rounds out the package. Oh yea, don't overlook the crizzzome bar tape! Great riding bike. If your in town on Wednesday night please come by and do our urban single speed ride.

Very nice build! Does Colonel's build wheels for fixed gear bikes, perchance?

Is Sully the guy with the beard and false teeth or the young man with, what I think is a bad toupée?

Since the pic the bike got new a new chain, cog and DA level bio pace front ring. The chain was just stretched from use. Although the bike has vertical dropouts, a quick release and no tensioner it has never dropped a chain...

Yep, that chain would be stretched, since Soulman does put the power down... BRRAAAAAPPPP...
