Ibis Mountain Bikes are one of the pioneers in the mountain biking industry, IBIS began in 1981 in Mendocino, California. Their founder Scot Nicol was one of the first mountain bikers and began building steel frames. Today, IBIS creates some of the most beautiful and technologically advanced bikes in the world.
On April Fools day of 1981, Scot Nicol “hung up his shingle” on a funky little shop a few miles east of Mendocino California. On that day, 38 years ago, Ibis was started without money and without a plan. Today they’re located in Santa Cruz with 26 (or so) people working at Ibis. Their 5 owners all work full time for the company. Hans Heim is their CEO, Tom Morgan is their president, Colin Hughes leads their engineering department, Roxy Lo is their designer and Scot tries to stay out of the way.
Bicicletta is PROUD to be Canada's largest Ibis account and give people the option to ride the Legendary bikes over Legendary terrain.
