Ride More. Work Less.  Ibiscycles.com

On April Fools Day 1981, Scot Nicol hung up his shingle on a funky little shop a few miles east of Mendocino, California. On that day, Ibis was started without money and without a plan. Today they’re located in Santa Cruz with 40 (or so) people working at Ibis. Their 5 owners all work full-time for the company. Hans Heim is the CEO, Tom Morgan is president, Colin Hughes leads the engineering department, Roxy Lo is the designer, and Scot tries to stay out of the way.

Back in 2011, Ibis’ 30th birthday, they decided to recap a few stories and highlights and take a trip down memory lane. They dusted the cobwebs off the old photo albums, went through the archives and tried to remember stuff long since forgotten. They compiled 25 stories, then the weather got good, and they traded typing for pedaling. There’s still about 20 years of history left to write but this should get you started. Read the first 25 stories at https://www.ibiscycles.com/our-story/history
