New microsecond isomers in the neutron-deficient isotopes 189g,190Bi have been identified after in-flight separation by the velocity filter SHIP. The evaporation residues were identified on the basis of delayed recoil-$\gamma$/X-ray, recoil-$\gamma$/X-ray-$\alpha$ and excitation function measurements. The systematics of the [ $\pi1i_{13/2}$] 13/2+ excited states in the odd-mass Bi nuclei is discussed.
