Ibis

For classic tandem people in the Boston area, I just saw this:

The "Big Toe" pump peg is just strange.

It's actually called the "Toe Jam" pump peg and the little hand that serves as a brake cable stop is called the "Handjob".

Perhaps one of the funniest things that Ibis came up with was its Moron tubing; it's a double entendre.

In one respect moron was just a way of calling double-butting something other than double-butting in that there was simply 'more steel on' each end of the tubes, i.e., more-on or Moron.

However, the other reason Ibis elected to call their tubing Moron was far more in line with the mindset at Ibis: it was simply a play on the latest and greatest steel tubing from Columbus... the Genius tubing.
