Ibis (Mr.)

Teaches Bicycle-building
World famous for having won the Tour de South-Northern Swottolia (a legendary mountain race) on an Loma-99, a bicycle he built in his bedroom.
Instrumental in setting up the online courses at the world famous Quadcycle Training Academy.

For his third birthday, Humperdermus’ parents bought him a gramster as a present. A gramster is like a hamster, but better. They also bought a gramster-wheel for the cage. Jacobius (which is what Humperdermus named him) loved his wheel. He’d run on it all day and all night. Little Humperdermus found it fascinating, and he has loved anything to do with wheels since then.

At age 4 he was building his own gramster-wheels and selling them. He used the money to invest in proper wheel-making equipment, and by age 5 he was supplying wheels to the local bicycle store. By age 6 he was building complete bicycles in his bedroom.

By age 7 he had built his first heptacycle (7-wheeled bike). By age 8 he had built his fist octocycle (8-wheeled bike) and by nine his first noncycle (9-wheeled bike). When he was 10, he built his first decicycle (10-wheeler), the prototype Ibis-99.

He was so fascinated with the 10 wheel configuration that he stuck with it. Year after year he tweaked the design, improved the drive-train, strengthened and lightened the frame, and by the time he was 18, the now world-famous Ibis-99 was ready.
