The Ibis Gets Wings

The spiffy carbon Ibis flies once again. It's been a heartwarming tale of snapping derailleur hangers, twisted derailleurs, and toasted chains. Finally, the full story can be told. I'm expecting a call from Paramount Pictures any minute now. Look for the blockbuster to hit theaters next summer. Kevin Bacon and Pee Wee Herman are both in the running to play me. I couldn't be more proud.

Goodies await installation. Chainrings and cassette from three different retailers via the online wonder of eBay. All also have brick and mortar locations - actual bike shops. Chain arrived via personal visit to REI, even though they also sell online. It's a confusing world we live in. No matter the location, Shimano goodies are on the expensive side. No problem though, they make great stuff. All Ultegra level on the ladder of Shimano goodness.

My, what shiny teeth you have. Never again to be this clean.

Big ring keep on turnin', may the quads keep on burnin', and we're rolling, rolling, rolling on the Ibis.
