Bottom Line:   

I got this frameset as a Bike, XTR, judy Sl's and mavics 217's. This is one bit'ching frame. It stiff, yet on downhills doesn't kick you ass. It's a great bike. Too bad I can;t say the same for shock. Judy SL's are the biggest pieces of shit. I blew a cartridge after only 7 rides... F UCK ROCK SHOX TO HELL.
Otherwise.. a great bike.. almost affordable too... almost.

I have the above bike which I have had since new. It was used regularly for a few years and then put aside while I rode on the road and raced some cross. Now I am planning on entering some XC races in '09 and have a choice to make. Do I do some updates to my great handling Ibis and race that for ... Read More »
