Strengths:    For the price this bike is awesome. I'm confident it would have cost $1500 -$2000 if purchased at a bike shop. Ibex only sells direct and therefore saves you bucks. My bike shop was pissed that I didn't buy from them. After a recent tune-up they told me it really couldn't be any better after i asked for a recommendation on parts I should upgrade. They told me it was a lot of bike and I will be happy for some time to come. It's true the bike components are sweet and nearly the top of the line in each brand. Customer service on the Tech side is great to deal with and Jack the owner is very friendly and informative. A nice American independent company that produces tough affordable MTB's.

Weaknesses:    A bit on the heavy side. My buddies all have carbon or aluminum frames and they cruise uphill a bit faster than me. However I think the weight and durability adds some fun when nailing out the extreme downhill rides.

Bottom Line:   
This bike rips and is worth the money. When I upgrade I will first look to IBEX. I'm hoping by then they have a carbon frame that weighs less.

Strengths:    Nice smooth ride...components work well together...downhills are a breeze. Customer service was awesome. I am 6-4, 225 and this thing handles everything I throw at it.

Weaknesses:    A little bit on the heavy side...mine is the largest frame they made and it is 32 and some change

Bottom Line:   
I picked the bike up on sale...I think the normal price is 1199 or something like that. It is a great bike...especially for the money spent. I would consider buying a road bike from them if they offered one in my size...5 chilis!

How To Install Monarch 4.2 on Atlas Sport?

Hello to my Ibex family. I got hold of a Brand New Rock Shox Monarch 4.2 for my Atlas Sport for $125 and I would like to replace my Manitou Metel coil shocks with it. According to James from Ibex : The rear shock on the Atlas is a 7.5"X2.0 which is the size I have. My dilemma is I don't know what ... Read More »

Atlas Sport vs Trophy Pro

Ok guys, I would like to know the advantages and disadvantages of a FS vs a HT, and vice versa. There is a guy selling an Atlas sport here and I'm wondering if I should just bite and skip out on the trophy pro, or if I should go FS in the first place. Thanks!Read More »

Ignition Super or Atlas Sport

I've been comtemplating my upgrade to FS for a while, and am convinced that an IBEX is the ticket to allow me to stretch my $ a little further. I've been targeting that '08 ignition super in the killer green color for a while, but am now starting to look at the entry level Atlas. For a couple hund ... Read More »

Who wants my Atlas Sport?

I bought it a few months back and I have only taken it to the local trails once. I live on a newly paved country road and it has seen a few trips up and down that to get any kinks out before going to the trail. Riding isn't convenient at this point and it makes no sense for it to just sit there wh ... Read More »
