I just sold my old bike a older Trek that was a little to big and now in search of its replacement. $650 shipped is the MAX I can go but would be nice to find something decent around $450. I have considered the IBEX 450, 550, and 650 and I like them all. I would like something 28lbs or under. The 550 is listed at 29.3lbs so its out. I am not sure how much disk breaks mean to me but its always a bonus. I believe I would pick better components or wheels over disk. Rapid Fire only no Grip shift. Weight of bike, components, and fork are more what I am looking for. Sugestions welcome. What about this bike? http://www.thebicycleoutlet.com/ind...2&category_id=75&option=com_phpshop&Itemid=32
Schwinn Mesa GSD Also is Iron Horse any good I have seen some cheaper ones from them aswell. http://www.rscycle.com/s.nl/it.A/id.7858/.f?sc=7&category=56 http://www.rscycle.com/s.nl/it.A/id.7932/.f?sc=7&category=56

1.3 pounds is going to disrupt your riding that much ay :confused: With the money you save buying a Ibex you could put it on a diet & recoop your money selling the other parts. Or just ride in your birthday suit. :thumbsup:
